What makes it special

Reconstructed Farmhouse at Castello di Casole in Siena

The classic Tuscan villa sits on a hillside with long views across the rolling countryside. In this regard, Casale Poggio alla Corona is a perfect example, albeit one with traditional roots and a contemporary flair.

The view is extraordinary, and looks directly at the Castello on the next hilltop to the east. The entire residence is organized to look out and across the unique glass tiled infinity pool, which is surrounded on three sides by terraces for sunning and lounging.

One of the further appeals of Casale Poggio alla Corona is that all four of the bedroom suites are housed in a single residence, bringing family and friends closer together.

This said, the spaces are expansive, especially the central kitchen and great room, a decidedly modern interpretation of the Italian tradition that makes hearth and dining the heart of the gathering experience.  The property is 4200 square feet.

You can purchase a 1/12th fractional co-ownership. Read more here.

“CASTELLO DI CASOLE”
In the rolling Tuscan hills not far from the mythic cities of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano is one of the largest private landholdings in all of Italy. Vineyards and orchards of olive trees pattern the hillsides.

Two grand cypress-lined lanes ascend to a historic castle. Dotting the estate are restored Casali farmhouses each with dramatic glass-tiled private pools. This treasured property is Castello di Casole, the newest and most romantic addition to the Timbers Collection portfolio.

Commanding the most favored sites throughout the property are the ruins of modest farmhouses or Casali. The Casali are unique to each other and are separately named with their own custom style, layout and color scheme.

Each Casale farmhouse is a collection of main home and outbuildings, which now serve as unique and inviting guest quarters. Indoor spaces for each family compound are 4000 to 7000 square feet or 370 to 650 square meters.

They are organized around a series of glass-tiled, infinity edge pools and hand set stone patios warmed by original forno a legna or wood burning ovens.

Constructed in the traditional Tuscan style, the Casali farmhouses are restored using indigenous building materials reclaimed from the property’s ruins, including ancient stone, traditional terra cotta roof tiles and Carrara marble. Stylish features lend an exquisite and traditional Italian air, such as barrel-vaulted and exposed-beam ceilings, wood-burning interior “sitting” fireplaces, outdoor forno ovens and private swimming pools with shimmering Italian mosaic glass tiles.

Inside, antique and contemporary Italian furnishings and fabrics from local regions create distinct styles and moods. Each Casali is a painstaking restoration where architectural details, traditional craftsmanship and regional materials are certain to delight for generations to come.

The design and architecture team has focused on sustainable construction and environmentally conscious methods, while restoring and reconstructing buildings to their original forms.
