BEAUTIFUL 4 BDR VILLA WITH GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL, PALAIA, PISA, TUSCANY
We found ourselves in the immediate country side of Palaia, among the South Pisa hills, immersed in the Tuscan country side, and only a short drive from all services and amenities.
The property is accessed by automated gate, and a short drive leads to the parking area and the house. This private villa is set on 1.000 sq.m. of garden, on a high rise which shows Palaia to the North and the valley towards Castelfalfi and then Volterra to the South, surrounded by views and vegetation.
Although a modern building, it still shows the warmth of Tuscan living, as it was built by a resident in the late 1900, thus reuniting more modern building technologies to allow a comfortable living.
Complete this property a beautifully appointed swimming pool which is located in a sunny position with lovely views of both Palaia and the country side, with its own gazebo to enjoy time at the pool but repaired from the hot summer sun.
The property measures around 260 sq,m. and develops on the ground and first floor, plus a usable attic.
The main entrance is on the ground floor and opens onto a very generous living area with a double aspect fireplace, and double doors opening onto the rear garden and the panoramic views beyond. This open space leads onto the spacious dining room and a large separate kitchen. All these rooms enjoy a south facing exposition with plenty of natural light coming through the French doors and windows opening onto the garden. Also on this floor are a laundry/utilities room, a bathroom with shower.
Last but not least, there is access to a large room which is used as a “taverna”, the Italian word to describe a living area separate but linked to the main house used to host parties and dinners, with its own built in wooden fireplace come oven/barbecue.
A double aspect staircase from the centre of the ground floor, which also constitutes the natural division from the living room and the dining room, leads to the first floor, again with plenty of natural light flowing in from the many windows. Here there are 4 bedrooms of which 3 doubles and 1 single, and two bathrooms with shower and or bath tub. At the far end of the corridor is a small storage room, which also leads to a spiral staircase to access the attic, which has fair hight to allow for the creation of a living space come bedroom, and potentially also add a further bathroom if one so wishes.
The construction itself, as it was created as the main residence for a local family, is top notch, nothing spared in both materials and techniques used. All utilities are in full working order, and the rooms show a great regard for large spaces and usefulness of natural light.
The grounds are very well kept, fully fenced, and there is also the possibility to acquire further land around it if one wishes to add more privacy.
For those that appreciated modern comfort, the property is ready to move in, while for those who wish more “traditional” interiors, we have architects who can easily and without much effort and costs create a more charming look to the internal rooms, like beamed ceilings for example.
The property is ideal as a second home for a family who enjoys the country side and the comfort of having all the services and facilities nearby, and it also has the potential to generate a healthy return investment with tourist rental.
