Richard Gutteridge invites you on a virtual tour that takes in the Tuscan hills and a classic Knightsbridge square

“The ability to view properties using what we have at our fingertips opens up the world. It allows people to explore the interior and surroundings of a property without actually travelling. This is particularly important at the moment when people can’t or are reluctant to travel, but it’s also a continuation of the way the market is moving.

Indeed, having the chance to explore a property multiple times on a video tour means that sometimes you see more than you might in person.

From the bird’s-eye view of olive groves in Tuscany to the lifestyle facilities at Chelsea Barracks, we have 10 tours where you can get an encapsulating view of the architectural, interior, and positional viewpoints of a property, all from your armchair.” Richard Gutteridge

Its centrepiece is an 11-bedroom main villa that dates back to 1742 and is reached by a driveway lined with cypress trees.

The property also has a chapel, a courtyard with a Renaissance well, outbuildings, a wellness centre with indoor jacuzzi and swimming pool, all surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, orchards, woods, a large lake and beautiful gardens.
