Property description

A rare opportunity to acquire an authentic Tuscan stone farmhouse, partially renovated, with outbuildings and land in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, just 10 km from the hilltop town of Volterra. The land is extensive at 130,000 sqm (32 acres). The farmhouse is set in the Pisan countryside, close to a village with services just a short walk away. A partial restoration has been undertaken on the house and there are additional outbuildings to restore. The house is on two levels and it is large (400 sqm). The extensive land comprises a lovely garden with an enclosed park, woodland, arable fields and an olive grove. Most of the land is fairly level and the panoramic views are breathtaking. Just 45 minutes from Pisa International Airport and the Tyrrhenian coastline. The internal layout of the farmhouse is flexible. It could provide a number of individual characterful apartments or one special family home, with possibilities for home or rental. The building has been restructured inside in Tuscan style with terracotta floors, high ceilings with beams and exposed rafters and with exposed stone in places. There is still scope to tailor the building as you wish. The restructuring was carried out in 2012 and has included work to the roof and to the facade. The main accommodation is currently on the first floor, with an entrance into the large kitchen with fireplace, a large living room, two double bedrooms and there is an attic level with additional bedroom. A wonderful feature is the large south-west facing terrace with a beautiful view. The ground floor is currently ‘cantina’ store rooms which offer potential for additional accommodation. Originally this was a mill and it is still possible to use the water from the nearby lake and aqueduct for use in the garden. With a beautiful barn to restore and with an additional ‘porcelaia’ (pig house) to restore as well. There is a small plunge pool and it would be possible to also create a larger swimming pool (subject to planning). Services are on site. Easy access and plentiful private gated parking. Volterra is an enchanting walled hilltop town with Etruscan roots (4-6 centuries BC) and much later Roman influence. The town’s narrow medieval streets and its central piazza are enchanting. The beauty of the 13th century Palazzo dei Priori which sits tall over the piazza, as well as the Palazzo Pretorio across the square, dominate the town. The ‘Volterra AD 1398’ festival, held on the middle weekends of August, is a local highlight and during these weekends, Volterra is recreated as it was in the late 14th century with shows, events, markets, workshops, music and juggling to enjoy. The town is located in the Valdera region of Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence where this colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees, epitomises the Tuscan landscape. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization. In Lajatico the famous tenor, Andrea Boccelli, has created the ‘Teatro di Silenzio’ where the natural landscape creates a breathtaking setting for an open air music and opera festival attracting top musicians from all over the world for special performances every July. Casciana Terme has thermal waters and new spa facilities, with indoor and outdoor pools, massages and treatments and it is a pretty town with a lovely central piazza with cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) nearby include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence all of which offer wonderful history, art and architecture to explore. Distances: Molino d’Era (restaurant) 2 km, Volterra 10 km, San Gimignano 25 km, Certaldo 30 km, Palaia 30 km, Pisa (airport) 50 km, Cecina (beaches) 50 km, Siena 60 km, Lucca 65 km, Florence 80 km.
