ITALY, TUSCANY, PISTOIA, MASSA E COZZILE
In Massa e Cozzile, in the province of Pistoia, a magical place nestled in the flourishing and lush Tuscan hills, offering a pleasant regenerative cradle for body and soul.
Located in the ancient homonymous medieval village, a short distance from the historic spa of Montecatini, it is a precious glimpse of a time when the supremacy of Italian art, history and style, were undisputed.
This charming property is a lovingly restored apartment within a 2 storey house, with private and independent entrance, and private panoramic garden with covered veranda. Inside we find a careful choice of materials: from pietra serena, local travertine, terracotta tiles, natural linen fabrics and prestigious sought-after furnishings, to the delicate porcelain services branded Richard Ginori.
From the outdoor garden and the windows of the house you can enjoy the spectacle of the Valdinievole, the surrounding villages and small hill towns, the ancient Monasteries, while nearby are breath-taking views and renowned Tuscan wineries.
All the above is an attempt to allow you to get a feeling for this unique property, of which a mere description of facts and figures do not do any justice at all! But down to the details, this property is accessed by one of the winding roads of the small town of Massa e Cozzile, with an independent external stone staircase which leads to the outdoor garden and terrace and the main entrance.
From here the property is on a single ground floor, and covers a net floor area of around 80 sqm.
The main entrance opens onto the beautifully appointed living room and dining room with exposed chestnut beams ceiling, two windows opening onto the beautiful panorama of the Valdinievole below.
To the far left is a stool counter which opens onto the kitchen, small but with every appliance needed. Also on the left is a small corridor with access to a storage/utility room, and then the main bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
The main bedroom has bags of character. Antique furnishing, white-washed ceiling, well appointed ensuite bathroom with venetian plastered walls, and then beautiful bed linen, which are part of the sale as everything seen in the images.
From the far side of the living we access another room, which would have been originally the main entrance hallway as it still has with a blocked off entrance door which would bring to the other access to the property. This room, also with panoramic windows, can be used as a studio or second living room, but mostly becomes a second bedroom, with its own bathroom ensuite with bathtub.
Outside the terraced garden hosts a jacuzzi which allows you to sit in the bubbling warm water, sipping your favourite drink, while at the same time enjoying the amazing view of the valley below, albeit in total privacy.
The covered terrace with outdoor table and chairs is a wonderful setting for any outdoor meal any time of the day.
The property is fully functional, connected to all the mains services for electricity, water, and heating, and is ready to live in.
The sale includes all the hard and soft furnishing, including the beautiful sets of bed and bathrooms linen, the porcelain sets marked Richard Ginori, lovely cutlery and crockery, and everything else as seen in the images published.
The location is very quiet, made for those in search for tranquillity but at the same time close to other main attractions. It is a perfect second home to be used in all seasons, and also an excellent opportunity for holiday rental when not used.
Access to the house, like for the other residents in this part of the town, is on foot, while the car can be parked just a hundred meters below, unless you become a proper local resident, and buy yourself an Ape Piaggio!
