This unique property sits on the slopes of the Pratomagno hills (1600 mts) with the Setteponti (Seven bridges) Etruscan road below; a pretty country road with olive groves and meadows on both sides, connecting several interesting towns and Romanesque churches (Gropina, Vallombrosa). Its setting is unique; combining privacy, impeccable far-reaching views, sunsets and silence. (All measurements are approximate)
Il Leccio is an original 17th century farmhouse which has been carefully restored by the present owners over 40 years. The buildings comprise the main house, a staff or guest house measuring ca. 135 sqm with a separate entrance drive, a small annex (ca 16 sq m) with dining pergola and an underground cantina of ca. 75 sq m used as garage space. It has a 1st floor loggia and ground floor portico.
The land immediately surrounding the house is terraced garden with shaded dining areas, ancient olive groves (600 trees) set on dry-stone walled terraces and oak woods with a stream, all of which is fenced.
There is a mini football pitch, a swimming pool of ca. 3 x 6 mts and a vegetable garden. Carefully maintained tracks have been created through the woods for walking and wood cutting.
There is a well and a spring on the property and the seasonal river runs through the woods at the end of the garden.
