Casa Rosa

Val D'Orcia | Tuscany

This beautiful property was restored by a local, esteemed architect. The property of antique origin has been modified over the centuries. The oldest part of the building originally a watch tower dates from 1300's. In 1500's the property was extended. The main building, which enjoys a reserved location, is set at the end of a country lane which winds through vineyards passing quaint farmhouses. The property enjoys far reaching views from the crest of the hill to far beyond were the rolling hills with fields resembling a patchwork appear to rise up from the morning mist. The building which extends from the main nucleus to form a courtyard dates from 1800 whereas the loggia positioned at the front of the building is a more recent construction. Although the buildings date from various periods the property has a harmonious flow binded by the warm hues of the local stone. The impressive porch opens out onto the valley and was originally used to store the agricultural equipment and as a pig sty. It has been creatively converted into an outdoor living room , ideal during the hot summer months. The ground floor of the main floor originally provided stabling for the animals whereas the living areas were located on the upper floor. The stables have been converted into a spacious living room with characteristic arched openings and a fireplace. The original beamed ceiling has been skilfully preserved. To the left of the entrance there is a spacious, bright farmhouse kitchen in a rustic style. There is also a study on the ground floor. Access to the upper floor is via an internal staircase. On this floor there is a living room with billiard table. The layout of the bedrooms has remained unchanged. The rooms are spacious, bright and elegantly furnished with attention to detail; dark wood chests of drawers originating from the Piedmont region, armchairs, bed-side tables with lamps, colour co-ordinated fabrics and baskets of dried flowers. The soft, pastel -coloured sofas provide comfort whilst sitting by the hearth or reading a book. The dining room is furnished in a country style with local antiques. The floors are in traditional cotto tiles. Outdoors, the lawn hosts a large swimming pool. The few trees provide shade during the hot summer months. The garden is very natural embellished with mediterranean vegetation such as scented rosemary buses and flowers which grow spontaneously under the twisted trunks of the olive trees. An oasis of tranquillity ,the only sound is the gentle breeze and the rustle of the leaves.
