Strada Provinciale 23 delle Ville di Corsano, 53014 Monteroni D'arbia SI, Italia
This beautiful Villa Leopoldina consists of two buildings: the villa and the annex, with the typical Tuscan architecture of its time, known in fact as “Leopoldina“. The property in Tuscany is self contained within 1 hectare of gently sloped land in a prime location, very near Monteroni D’Arbia, less than 15 minutes from Siena.
This historical villa has been traced back to the 13th century, and it is unique in the style as it has plastered facades and an imposing cornice which denote its background as having been once an elegant villa, perhaps a summer residence of a noble family.
The area where the villa is located forms part of the protected Crete-Senese, known for its classic Sienese cornfields, olive groves and vineyards, framed with cypress-lined roads leading to serene and majestic country estates.
The immediate vicinity of the property is idyllic and exclusive, with veiws of the picturesque village of Radi, towards the west and Mount Amiata is visible on the horizon in the East. The surroundings are breathtaking and completely unspoilt, with no blemishes on the landscape. Every window in the house frames a different and perfect view.
The Villa Leopoldina has 2 stories of 300sqm each plus an external utility room and 2 cellars, bringing the total surface to circa 650 sqm. This space can be increased by the conversion of the attic, if necessary.
The ground floor of the villa is divided into 3 reception rooms, one of which is 14 mt x 6 mt, a large covered porch, kitchen, downstairs bathroom and stairwell. The first floor is divided into 8 bedrooms, each with a bathroom en suite, with space for two more bedrooms in the attic. The basement level consists of a utility room and two cellars.
The annex is a single storey building of approx. 300sqm. The space can be increased by the addition of a mezzanine level. The annex has permission for subdivision in 3 country apartments of 2 bedroom each.
