This stunning contemporary villa is located in the beautiful Chianti countryside, halfway between Florence and Siena and just twelve miles from San Gimignano. The layout of Scrivere ensures you complete privacy from the rest of the world. Scrivere is on one floor, situated around a magnificent swimming pool, large terraces and courtyards. The villa is reached by a long private gravel road through the spectacular Tuscan countryside and has an electronic gate at the entrance. Quite enchanting! This magnificent house is completely private; the layout of this one story villa was carefully designed to give you complete privacy as it wraps itself around a large courtyard with a 10 x 5 meter pool with a large circular Jacuzzi. The lawns are spacious, with olive trees and rows of lavender. All on one floor, Scrivere, newly renovated for 2008, has a lovely contemporary interior. No one does contemporary quite as well as the Italians! Dark wooden floors, glass and wood prevail, mixed with stone wall interior features. Large, full wall sized windows are in each room of the house facing the courtyard which the architect purposely included to give the villa a natural luminous glow with a light and airy feeling. In the bedrooms, the headboards are hand painted in verses of Boccaccio's De Cameron .
