The Villa Batini building complex is located just a few kilometres from the Tuscan village of Lucignano, which is surrounded by medieval walls and is right in the heart of Valdichiana. This group of stone-built properties (a total of approximately 740 sqm) is completed to a builder's finish and features a main house and further smaller annexes located on flat land with lovely views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
The main house (approximately 500 sqm) is on 3 floors and is already stunning with spacious rooms and enormous arched windows and door openings. The spaces are distributed as follows:
Entrance, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, guest bathroom, stairs accessing the first floor.
Sitting room, kitchenette, master bedroom with en suite dressing room and bathroom with separate bath and shower, second bedroom with ensuite bathroom, third bedroom with ensuite bathroom
bedroom with ensuite dressing room and bathroom with separate bath and shower.
Close to the main house 4 smaller buildings (one of which, the caretaker's house, is on two floors) are in place. These buildings will provide additional one/two-bedroom accommodation built with the same techniques.
First guest house (59 sqm)
Entrance, bedroom with ensuite dressing room and bathroom
Second Guest house (85 sqm)
Entrance, sitting room with kitchenette, 2 bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom
Caretaker's house (68 sqm)
Ground floor: sitting room with kitchenette.
First floor: bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
Fitness and bathroom (28 sqm)
A fifth building, a little further away from the main cluster, has been planned and constructed as a 43 sqm pool house with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, dressing room, storage room and a 10 sqm shady pergola, perfect to relax.
Furthermore, an underground garage with direct access to the main building is available.
5 hectares of land surround the properties and access to them is by means of an excellent gravel road.
All of the tedious work e.g. the planning, the digging, the levelling of the land, has all been done so it is already fairly easy to imagine what a stunning development this will eventually be. The pleasurable things; the type of flooring, the bathroom and kitchen fittings, the choice of windows and doors, the interior colours, will be up to the new owner.
The location, as mentioned, is convenient but it is quite difficult to convey how lovely the land is as it is on a slightly lower level than the buildings and sweeps away from them in swathes.
Villa Batini is located near to two other properties which are also for sale: Villa Lucignano, a stunningly restored villa in Leopoldina style and Casa Risani (a large farmhouse with a number of annexes and an amazing pool and pool house). All three properties have independent access and are private from each other.
