SUPERB FARMHOUSE WITH SWIMMINGPOOL, VINEYARDS, POMARANCE, PISA, TUSCANY
A stunning original Tuscan farmhouse from the 19th century, which was tastefully and painstakingly renovated in 2003 by its current owners, who created a majestic but at the same time unassuming ambience, inserted among the marvellous green Tuscan hills of the upper Val di Cecina, in Pomarance, bordering between the counties of Pisa and Siena.
The property, measuring 566 square meters, lies in the middle of the estate and in a panoramic position, with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, with a mature garden and a south facing swimming pool.
The farmhouse has been conveniently divided in two parts: the main house on two floors covering an area of 450 sqm, and an independent apartment on 3 levels of 100 sqm. ca. It is important to consider that although the property in this configuration is used as both private residence and rental property, it can be easily considered as a private dwelling only with very few adjustments, if any at all. In its actual configuration, the entire property has 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, of which 8 are in the main house, and 3 in the independent apartment, all with air conditioning.
The ground floor of the main house consists of an entrance hall/reception area, the main living room/dining room opening onto the generous porch overlooking the swimming pool, a further breakfast room, a superbly fitted professional kitchen, storage room, a service bathroom, and 2 double rooms ensuite with independent access. The internal staircase leads to the first floor where there are 3 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom all ensuite, and 2 suites.
The apartment, or semidetached town house, on the ground floor has an open plan living area with kitchen, a studio and bathroom. An internal staircase leads to the first floor with a double bedroom with fireplace, walk in wardrobe and bathroom, and then to the second floor were there are 2 further double bedrooms and a bathroom.
Right off the south facing covered terrace is a stone building with barbecue and wood burning oven. In the basement there is also a cellar of 100 square meters dedicated to the production of wine, which was build in 2011 and provided with air circulation system.
Conveniently located but not too close to the house is a covered parking area, the roof of which hosts panels for an 18 kw photovoltaic system.
The mature garden of 400 square meters is the setting where the 15 x 8 meters pool lies in a south facing position.
Complete the property a tennis court, which need revamping.
The estate has been thus far maintained as it was originally created, a farm with 15 hectares of land dedicated to vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees, divided as follows: a vineyard of 0.5 ha with Sangiovese, Merlot and Vermentino grapes (production 3.500 bottle per year); 850 olive trees, 100 fruits trees, of which 15 cherry trees; the remaining is pasture and arable land. There is also a rainwater system used to water the garden, plus a modest water well.
While the property enjoys a very private setting, it is conveniently close to the town of Pomarance at only 2 km, and just over 30 km to the Tuscany coast. Pisa international airport is 1 hr. drive away, as are many of the main locations in Tuscany.
This stunning property can be considered as an investment for those who wish to continue the farming and tourist rental activity (and in doing so be assisted initially by its current owners or other farmers in the area), or for those who wish to create a beautiful private residence and at the same time enjoy the wine and olive oil it produces.
