This wonderful genuine Tuscan style farmhouse is set amongst 7 ha of mature land and lies within in a beautiful panoramic location of the Vloterra countryside.

The property is just 4 km from Volterra centre and shops and it’s easily accessible through a 2.5 km unpaved road in good condition. The farmhouse is 216 sqm developing over three storeys, the layout is as follows: on the ground floor, there is a spacious lounge with original terracotta floors, cross-vaulted ceilings, large and bright windows, kitchen, bathroom, and staircase which leads to the first floor and consists of generous sized double bedroom with access to the panoramic terrace.

Through the hallway it is possible to reach the second kitchen, dining-area which opens on to the well-kept garden, bedroom, passage room with stairs to access the top floor where it is possible to find the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom with access to the garden. The first and second floor boast beamed ceilings and terracotta floors in some of the rooms. Outside there are 3 additional outbuildings: a 40 sqm former barn which is used as a meditation area but can be converted into a guesthouse, it boasts terracotta floors, mandorlato (which is a feature of the hayshed windows, which are made with a grill of bricks) and beamed ceilings; an original wood burning oven, the original fish pound/fountain with spring water, which is very useful to irrigate the land, a bright and good size garage is used as a workshop and sauna. Everything is set in 7 ha of land, well-kept, with several cypresses, fruit trees and 700 olive trees.  The land is very fertile as it’s rich in water.

The renovation has been minimal, trying to preserve the genuine characteristics of the farmhouse and trying to enhance the charm and atmosphere. All systems are connected with pellet burning stove and boiler, solar panels for the hot water, water mains, electric mains and telephone line with internet. It is possible to enjoy complete privacy because the road ends at the property, but at the same time the house is not isolated as there are other villas in the locality. Amazing panoramic views and lovely sun exposure.

The property needs to be improved or personalized according to the buyer’s requirements.
