Very cool 1950s school house in Tuscany given the 21st century treatment
Where can we start with this wonderful house? It may literally be "too cool for school". Built in 1952 as a school house, in an area close to Montepulciano and surrounded by some of the region's most famous vineyards, the building has been meticulously converted by a young Florentine architect into a truly 21st century home. Laid out over one floor, the house provides ample accommodation with lots of large windows, French doors and smoothly polished floors. The 40sqm living room has two large windows and two glass doors opening to the south-facing terrace and portico, and also benefits from a mezzanine gallery which currently acts as a music room, but could accommodate a fourth sleeping area if desired. The stylish. modern kitchen is fully equipped, with fitted oven, sunken gas hobs and even a wine fridge. The kitchen and dining area are open plan and, like the rest of the house, benefit from masses of light from the picture windows. There are three double bedrooms and two lovely bathrooms, all with large picture windows. The fenced garden runs to just under 2000sqm and contains a pool with wooden decking, and several fruit trees. The technology is ultra-modern, including a Vimar domotic system and alarm. A stunningly different property in Tuscany!
