A wonderful property which includes a 13th century church, a pool, a small vineyard in 1 Ha of land and tastefully restored accommodation.
An ancient farmstead built around a beautiful church which belongs to the property. The building developed over the centuries and now provides a unique property, fully restored and that can become a private home with guest and staff accommodation or be managed as previously as a tourist structure providing 5 apartments and lovely spaces for group dining and events based around cooking, culture and weddings.
The site of San Sigismondo sits on a hill just 10 km from Montalcino and enjoys wonderful views over rolling hills and the immaculately-kept vineyards of the Banfi estate. Originally one of the many farmhouses belonging to the castle, the current owners have restored this property in 2007 using original materials, carefully selected furniture and high-quality accessories – all potentially included in the sale, and have created a romantic and stylish property.
The farmhouse is attached to the church and is set in a u-shape around a courtyard with the typical central well. The ground floor of the main part of the building provides several elegant living spaces with a room dedicated to group cooking, wine tasting and a sitting area around a beautiful fireplace which leads on to three large interconnecting rooms for dining, sitting and general entertaining, a service area with a professional laundry room, linen and storage area, 4 bathrooms for staff and guests and a professional kitchen with access to the rear pergola for large al-fresco dining.
The rest of the property, covering ca. 900 sqm is divided into 4 apartments with 2 bedrooms with bathrooms and a 5th apartment with one bedroom and bathroom. These can be joined very simply to create larger areas for a single home with guest or staff accommodation or be left as are to continue the rental business.
There is GPL central heating, AC throughout, a pool of 18 x 6 mts and a small 3000 sqm vineyard of 70 years. There is a large parking area.
