A very short uphill driveway leads to the house and, and there is a parking area accommodating up to 6/7 cars.
To the rear of the house is a delightful, terrace, covered by a natural pergola overlooking Pisa. Below this a large storeroom that could be used as a gym or sauna, and in the garden a swimming pool could be built.
The perfect house to live all year round, thanks to the perfect location close to a town. The perfect house to use as a country home, thanks to a quiet and private location.
Pontedera, a town crossed by the river Era and lapped by the Arno before it continues to Pisa where it meets the sea. Its proximity to the sea and mountains make it a perfect location. Easily accessible by rail, road and internationally connected thanks to its proximity to Pisa airport.
