Property DescriptionPrestigious villa for sale in Tuscany, in Montepulciano - "Villa Montecavallo". Its origins are lost in time: it is thought that the villa was built during the 17th century as a country residence for a noble Montepulciano family. The first essential testimony of this theory is a oil-painting on canvas by Bartolomeo Barbiani (1596-1645) , dating back around 1635 and preserved in Palazzo Cervini in Montepulciano. The villa is located just a few steps away from the historical centre of the town, on the top of a small hill, called, in fact, Montecavallo. The property covers a total area of about 1.000sqm on three levels plus attic of about 65sqm and is divided into two living units (one of them is smaller with back entrance). The ground floor and the first level cover an area of 680sqm, while the basement, with a cave and beautiful cellars characterized by vaults, covers an area of about 358sqm. The villa is surrounded by a charming park of about 8.000sqm, with high trees (aleppo pines, holm oaks, cypresses, horse chestnut trees), laurel hedges which create typical Italian style paths, some olive trees and some fruit trees.
LocationThe villa is located just 800 m from the historic center of Montepulciano, an ancient Etruscan town, plowed by steep streets offering wonderful panoramas and views. Between Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia, Montepulciano offers an urban center full of historical and artistic sites in perfect harmony with the surrounding natural environment. The nearest railway station is in Chiusi, 25 km away, while the exit of Chiusi-Chianciano Terme is about 20 km away. Nearest airports: Peretola in Florence (120 km), Galileo Galilei in Pisa (185 km) and Leonardo da Vinci in Rome Fiumicino (about 200 km).
