ORIGINAL FARMHOUSE IN STUNNING PANORAMIC LOCATION, VOLTERRA, PISA, TUSCANY
This authentic detached farmhouse is perfectly nestled in the picturesque rolling hills of the Volterra countryside. From this vantage point you can easily admire the 200° unspoiled panoramic view of the Tuscan hills. Located only 13km from the renowned Etruscan town of Volterra, with all services and amenities, as well as superb restaurants and cafes. Volterra also hosts some beautiful historic sites, such as the Roman Theatre and Saint Maria Assunta Cathedral. The estate is accessible by a 5km unpaved road in good conditions. While the property is not totally isolated as there are other houses in the neighbourhood, this does not disrupt the intimacy and privacy which the location offers.
This charming farmhouse was completely renovated in 2010 and executed to an extremely high quality while preserving the traditional Tuscan style clearly displayed in the exposed stones and bricks on the walls, the terracotta floors, and the beamed ceilings.
The property consists of 280sqm spread across three floors. The entrance is accessed from the beautiful, sheltered portico, hosting wood burning oven and barbecue for superb “al fresco” dining, and uninterrupted views of the countryside from the private garden. This opens into the open plan living room and kitchen with a big snug fireplace and large windows, so that you are never separated from the magical panoramic views, successfully linking the indoor and outdoor spaces.
Still on the ground floor, there is an ensuite bedroom with grand windows to maximise light and space, offering its own breath-taking aspect of the outdoors. Internal stairs lead you to the first floor, comprising of a spacious bathroom and a master bedroom equipped with its own amazing ensuite double bathroom. From the living area on the ground floor, another staircase leads you to the basement area of the farmhouse, consisting of a cellar/wine bar with cross-vaulted ceilings, sizable storage room, a laundry and finally the technical room with access to the outside. It is possible to create a third bedroom.
The storage room in the basement can be converted into a home spa, to offer a place to further relax your body and mind. All utilities are connected, providing LPG underfloor heating (helped by the cast iron stove and the huge fireplace), and water mains. The house is well insulated with a 12cm insulation layer on the roof, making it a suitable second home for any time of the year.
Included in the sale is 15,000 sqm of farmland, partly fenced off for the garden, with fruit trees, olive trees, Mediterranean herbs, a carport as well as a wooden outbuilding to store garden tools. The town planning allows the possibility of building a swimming pool; however, it is necessary to submit a formal request for the project to the town authorities with the help of an architect, which we can assist you with.
The sale includes part of the furniture. The estate is a perfect setting not only for a second home, but also to live on a permanent basis considering the good size, the marvellous space, and the quality of the renovation.
Combined with the enchanting views and the secluded and intimate location, makes this delightful farmhouse the dream Tuscan home.
