Villa Alta, Anghiari, Tuscany


4 Bedroom House Sold

Villa Alta is in the hills of Anghiari, a picturesque, medieval town in Tuscany in the Upper Tiber Valley, close to the border with Umbria.  The town is listed as one of the most beautiful hilltop towns in Italy and is a short drive to key tourist destinations such as Florence, Siena and Assisi, making it an ideal holiday home.  Anghiari offers numerous bars, restaurants, shops and key local amenities and hosts a variety of musical, cultural and gastronomical events throughout the year. The spectacular views from the property span across Tuscany, Umbria and Le Marche.
The property comprises 3 traditional stone buildings: the main house, guest house and pool house.  While the property in its current form dates back to the early 1800’s, the main house is steeped in history and was originally a watch tower dating back to the 13th century and mentioned in the ‘Codice Taglieschi’ which dates back to 1626.  You can still make out the tower although it has been modified and expanded over the years.
The property has been fully restored and tastefully decorated and furnished with the key pieces included in the sale making this a fantastic turnkey opportunity.
The property is surrounded by nearly 40,000 sqm of land and the buildings are set out over approx. 260 sqm, as follows:
Main House:

  • Ground floor: wine cellar, bespoke open-plan kitchen/dining area living room, guest bathroom, laundry area and lovely panoramic portico with stunning east facing views.
  • First floor: accessible both via an external staircase (with portico) and an internal staircase, living room, bedroom and en suite bathroom with shower.
  • Second floor: master bedroom with a pitched, beamed ceiling, a spacious en suite bathroom including large oval bathtub and separate shower.
Guest House
  • Lower ground floor: cantina for storage.
  • Ground floor: living room, games room with pool table and a drinks station with fridge and coffee machine.
  • First floor: 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower.
Pool House
  • Ground floor: study/home office and service kitchen with large fridge, pantry for poolside snacks and stone worksurfaces and sink for food preparation.
  • First floor: gallery library overlooking the study below.
The Pool House kitchen leads out to a lovely, covered pergola that was designed to include a tree to avoid cutting it down. The pergola looks out over the swimming pool, the garden and views beyond.
The grounds include a 12×6 m swimming pool strategically placed to offer mesmerising views out over the valley and hills in the distance and the pool area includes a well thought out dining area with BBQ and a relaxing, in-ground hot tub.  The entire area boasts travertine, aged stone throughout making it both functional and very eye-catching.  The land around the pool area has been left as grass giving it a lovely open feel and includes a small treehouse.  Table tennis table, a large trampoline and football goals are also included in the sale making it a child’s paradise. The remainder of the almost 40,000 sqm grounds includes a beautiful, mature olive grove of approx. 150 trees and the remainder is woodland.
The buildings have been well maintained and offer an abundance of features such as the original wood oven in the entrance to the main house and beautiful, beamed ceilings. Terracotta ‘pianelle’ and lovely, aged travertine stone floors are throughout the property with the exception of the guest house bedrooms and the pool house library that have solid wood floors.  The windows are wood with double glazing and have mosquito nets. 3 of the bedrooms and the living room have air-conditioning.
The property’s brand new, 3 LPG boilers provide hot water and heating (via a combination of radiators and underfloor heating) to the 3 buildings, while a well (with water softener) provides the water and electricity is provided via the national grid. There is an automatic irrigation system in the garden and the outdoor lighting is controlled by remote control making it easy to adjust.
Villa Alta is approximately a 7-minute drive from Anghiari and access to the property is via well maintained country lanes and a 700 m white road which leads to the property’s private driveway.  The gravel driveway leads to a parking area with ample space for extra cars and then continues, running between the main house and pool house, into a charming courtyard area in front of the guest house.
Villa Alta provides the perfect opportunity to buy your own, private Italian ‘borghetto’ and is being offered fully furnished meaning the new owners can move in and start living ‘la bella vita’ from the moment they get the keys.
