Casetta Girasole is a charming terraced property located in the serene, medieval, hilltop town of Monterchi. Monterchi is a small village of approximately 2,000 inhabitants set deep in the Tuscan countryside of the Upper Tiber Valley, not far from the border with Umbria. Monterchi is ideally located within easy driving distance of major motorways or railway stations making it an excellent base from which to explore central Italy and beyond. Casetta Girasole has been lovingly restored and offers all the modern comforts in a breath-taking medieval surrounding. The electrical and plumbing systems are all certified and double glazed windows, a modern and efficient boiler and a very cosy pellet stove all contribute to making Casetta Girasole comfortable and very cosy. Casetta Girasole is set out as follows for a total living space, including the garage, of approx. 110 sq m:
- Lower ground floor: spacious garage with direct access to the terrace above.
- Ground floor: fitted kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and panoramic terrace.
- First floor: two spacious, bright and airy double bedrooms, hallway and bathroom.
The pellet stove in the kitchen is more than enough to keep the ground floor warm and cosy and the flue cleverly passes through one of the bedrooms above providing extra heating if needed. The staircase leading from the kitchen to the first floor has beautiful, solid wood steps and the entire first floor, with the exception of the bathroom, has parquet flooring throughout. The spacious garage is accessed from the road beneath and offers precious off-street parking. Furthermore, the garage has a staircase leading directly to the terrace above making loading or unloading luggage, shopping or anything else, even in the winter months, less of a chore. The lovely, panoramic terrace with uninterrupted views over the surrounding hills and valley and with an original stone wall on one side, is an ideal spot for ‘al fresco’ dining during the warmer months or simply a wonderful place to sit and take in the summer sun whilst reading a good book. Casetta Girasole would make a wonderful home for a couple or small family or an ideal Tuscan getaway to retreat to for short weekend breaks or long summer vacations.
