The Monte Argentario is a Tuscan island joined to the mainland by sandbanks creating lagoons that host pink flamingos and white herons. The beaches are mainly rocky except for the 10km sandy Feniglia beach, a famous nature reserve.

Originally inhabited by the Etruscans, then the Romans and in the 16th and 17th century by the Spanish, the Argentario has two fishing villages; Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano, which were developed in the 1950s to become important summer holiday destinations for Italian and International families.

It is rare to find original houses in any Mediterranean seaside location, as almost all of the buildings form part of new developments of some kind. This property is the exception to that rule, as it was built in the eighteenth century as a farmhouse of a large agricultural estate, around which an exclusive residential estate was developed in the 1960s, comprising 29 private properties which is completely fenced and gated with a porter’s lodge. The house is considered to be the most unique of the houses on the development and is now coming on to the market for the first time in 40 years.
Measuring approximately 730 sq m and facing south with completely unspoilt views, the farmhouse was extended in the 1970’s to provide accommodation on 2 floors. The entrance hall leads to a large bright living room, through to a dining room and kitchen; all with doors to the wide, panoramic terrace on the front of the villa overlooking the pool and beyond to the sea with the Ercole Island a short distance away. From the kitchen, there is a large area dedicated to the staff with an apartment of 3 rooms, a laundry and a technical area.
From the entrance hall, there is a corridor to the separate guest area comprising 3 bedrooms, one of which is single, all with doors onto the terrace and garden. There are 3 bathrooms and a further room currently used as a dressing room. Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor with a comfortable sitting room with fireplace. A door from this room leads to the covered loggia and on to an independent guest bedroom suite which can also be accessed by the external stairs. Leading on from the sitting room, there are 2 further bedrooms;
one of which is single with 2 bathrooms and a large master bedroom suite with bathroom and a door onto a wonderful terrace overlooking the sea.
Gardening was the passion of the previous owner and he trained up a young man to help him, who has been with the estate for 35 years!
As a result the mature landscaped gardens around the property are extremely well-kept with lawn areas, ancient olive trees, palm trees and panoramic terraces from which to enjoy the sea view. The property also has its own private swimming pool, pool annexe (43 sq m), tennis court, garage (65 sq m) and covered parking.
