This is the unique combination between traditional country side living and modern design.
This modern, contemporary villa in the refurbished shell of a former farm building is located in the world-famous Val d’Orcia in Tuscany. The restoration was carried out under Special Umbria management and completed in July 2012. The result is a unique property with a barn-style exterior and an industrial, minimal yet welcoming interior.
The design details draw inspiration from around the world, with subtle nods to Morocco and the vast barns of America. A comfortable combination of complementary textures and finishes includes concrete floors, Tadelakt bathrooms, iron and wood and large windows and doors. The simple layout creates an easy flow through the property and an indoor-outdoor ethos that is perfectly in tune with the relaxing vibe of the house.
The villa sits in the middle of a large, mature garden framed by tall cypress trees and old oaks and pines. The 12mx6m pool sits on a terrace just below the house, accessed by elegant steps down through lavender beds, while the spacious pool surround is perfect for sunbathing.
The lower-ground level with direct access to the back garden and pool area can be used for further development.
Villa Vergelle is also a successful rental property, securing an average of 24 weeks a year, making it an excellent investment.
