ITALY, TUSCANY, PISA, VOLTERRA
For sale a lovely terraced house in a fully restored borgo in the unspoiled hills between Volterra and San Gimignano.
The complex is accessed by a 2.5 km unpaved road in good condition, and is far from the noisy busy roads at the top of a hill, 450 meters above the sea level with a breathtaking 360° panoramic view across the surrounding countryside.
4 km from the borgo is a charming village with a very good quality restaurant. All the other services, supermarkets, groceries, banks, post office, chemists and so on are in Volterra which is 20 minutes by car. The Coast is 45 minutes, Pisa airport is 1.5 hours as is Florence, Siena is an hour and San Gimignano only half an hour.
The borgo is composed of 3 buildings divided into 18 units, with a central piazza, a parking area and a communal panoramic swimming pool. Each house has private outdoor space.
The renovation of the borgo was completed in 2010. It was a huge old ruin which dates back to the 1400s and it has been tastefully and nicely converted into a 18 unit condominium, maintaining the original features such as the exposed stone and bricks on the exterior, the original towers at the entrance and the beamed ceilings.
The house for sale was bought in 2012 and the current owners have tastefully decorated and furnished it. It is 95 sqm on two storeys, in the middle building, and is accessible from the private portico on the ground floor which opens onto the large living room with fireplace, kitchen area, bathroom and a lovely winter garden (covered terrace) which is currently used as dining room. From the terrace, stairs lead to the private garden.
Internal stairs lead to the first floor which comprises a large bathroom, bedroom, main bedroom with additional covered loggia used as study and a walk-in closet.
Part of the furniture is included.
