This stunning independent farmhouse has been recently renovated to the highest of standards, and is situated in a beautiful position among Volterra’s famous and characteristic clay hills, and only 5 minutes’ drive from the town itself.
The property, which dates back to the 1700’s, has been carefully and tastefully restored by its actual owners, who undertook the restoration in order to maintain the authenticity of the original materials and features wherever possible. Materials such as oak, cypress wood, cotto tiles and local stone were carefully removed and sent to various carpenters and stonemasons to be restored and replaced. The result is a property that remains true to its origins and has the feeling of authenticity.
The house develops on approx’170 sqm, and comprises of an open plan lounge/dining area, separate large kitchen, bathroom and laundry room on the ground floor. From the living room the suspended stone staircase leads to the first floor, hosting two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Always on the ground floor there is an extensive loggia overlooking the infinity swimming pool and the surrounding country side and distant hilltop towns.
The traditional Tuscan style blends harmoniously with modern comforts such as air-con, modern bathrooms and a fitted kitchen. Local planning regulations allow for this property to be increased in size.
The property sits in its own small estate of around 5 ha, which consists of gardens, panoramic patio loggia, olive groves and forest. A stream provides a natural border for part of the estate.
