Description of buildings

The main house has a total surface area of around 823 sq.m over three floors.

On the ground floor there is the living area, with kitchen, basement room, dining room, large double living room and bathroom, plus a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and its own entrance.

Outside, a pretty porch and a large, panoramic terrace overlooking the valley function as a living/dining room in the summer.

The two upper floors, accessible both from inside and by a separate entrance via a typical outdoor staircase, boast a total of 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, many of which are en-suite, and 4 living rooms.

Inside, there is a kitchen. 3 storerooms, two store cupboards and a wood-burning oven on the ground floor, an old private chapel, with the sacristy, another kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms, store cupboard and bathroom on the floor above and another bedroom on the top floor.

 

Not far from the two main buildings there are another 3 annexes measuring 50, 68 and 96 sq.m, all with storage space and two wood-burning ovens dating back to the 18th century. 

State and finishing

The hamlet has been fully restored and has retained its original architectural features.

The annexes, which are currently used as utility areas for the two main buildings (storerooms, equipment storage, laundry room etc.) have been restored but not decorated. 

External areas

Tenuta della Contessa is surrounded by over 4 hectares of private land.

Next to the main building, there is a large terrace, from which you can admire the view and the swimming pool below, with its solarium area.

A landscaped garden has been built around the buildings, with shady areas thanks to the trees and lush vegetation, as well as a parking area.

On the hill there is also an olive grove, which slopes away leaving space for the woodland. 

Use and potential uses

Currently used as a tourist accommodation business, the hamlet would also be ideal as an impressive private residence, with the possibility of living in the main house and using the other as guest accommodation. In addition, it could also be of interest to two families looking to be close to one another without giving up their independence and personal space.
