Podere Platea - Tuscany, Italy



Podere Platea is a magnificent Tuscan country house, located in a picturesque setting in the Val d'Orcia area of Tuscany - a setting ripe with the astonishing rolling hills and wine country that Tuscany is so well known for. Set on a wonderfully private piece of land, this property has some of THE most amazing views available.

The area is rich with the best that Tuscany has to offer and is set in a superbly strategic location. A 15 minute drive will take you to renowned areas such as Pienza & Montepulciano, Montalcino is only a half hour away, as are several of Italy's most renowned Spa resorts.

The property is located down an immensely private driveway. There is a semi-private driveway, about a 5 minute drive worth, located off the main state road. The private driveway leading to this house is up about .02 kilometres into the large hillside where the property resides.

This is an extremely cozy, stone Tuscany home on 30 acres of private land. There are two bedrooms located in the main core of the house and an additional three which are technically external bedrooms, but still located under the main roof.

The first double bedroom is a twin and is situated off of the corridor of the main entrance. This twin double enjoys an en-suite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom is a master double with a closet and dresser and beautiful en-suite bathroom with separate bathtub and large, glassed-in shhower. This bedroom enjoys a ceiling fan.

Down a flight of steps leads to a living room with couches, day beds, a stone fireplace and exit out onto a terrace with a dining table for 6, patio chairs, and some of Tuscany's best views. There is a secondary living area with a daybed (which can sleep one), a card table, TV, and fax machine.

The downstairs area boasts the beautiful, large dining room and kitchen. The dining table is a rectangular table fo 8, there is a large, stone fireplace, and the kitchen enjoys a double oven, 8-range stovetop, slicer, dishwasher, microwave, and small island preparation area. Great kitchen for food lovers! There is also a full bathroom with shower and a laundry room with refrigerator and freezer and washer and dryer.

The kitchen leads out onto a beautiful and beautifully panormaic stone terrace with covered dining area for 8, a nice large living area with comfortable seating areas and couches. There is a smaill vegetable garden and outdoor barbeque area. The terrace goes all the way around the house, which is situated on a beautiful mountain surrounded by pine, cypress, fig, nut trees and grapevines. Views from the property go out over the towns of Radiocofani, Pienza, and Contignano. The terrace leads down to a small set of steps to the pool area with several lounge chairs for sunbathing.

The 3rd and 4th bedrooms, located around the back of the house, are independent but close by. The third bedroom is a twin with en-suite bathroom, while the fourth bedroom is a double with en-suite bath with separate bathtub and shower. The 5th bedroom is the tower bedroom, located up a small flight of steps leading out next to the third and fourth bedrooms. This fifth bedroom is a double with en-suite bathroom with shower.
