ITALY, TUSCANY, PISA, VOLTERRA
We are delighted to offer you this beautiful, recently restored villa, located in a quiet position, immersed in the unspoilt countryside of Volterra, just a few minutes from the city and its services.
The house has great charm and has been tastefully renovated. It boasts fabulous stylish interiors that respect and enhance its original character.
Externally the house has terraced gardens and a beautiful swimming pool.
The property is easily accessible via a country road in good condition, and is spread over a total of 375 sqm, on two floors, accessible both by internal and external stairs, plus a small original 30 sqm barn currently used for storage. The barn could also be used as a garage thanks to the double door that allows access to vehicles.
On the ground floor the house boasts a spectacular kitchen with large island and dining area, and this leads directly to the porch with brick arches, where there are sitting and dining areas sheltered from the sun and with splendid views of the flowering terraces and the surrounding countryside and garden.
The porch is a cool place, perfect for having meals outdoors away from the summer heat, where you can enjoy a refreshing breeze.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the laundry area and a technical room with pantry.
From the kitchen you enter directly into the spacious and bright living area which is divided into three zones – a small winter sitting room with an old stone fireplace, a central sitting/dining area and a further possible dining area with a large welcoming table.
Also on this level we find a guest bathroom with shower.
On the first floor, the hallway has been transformed into a bright, airy and summery living room with access to the balcony which has a splendid view.
There are four spacious bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study, with utility room.
There are three bathrooms, two with a shower and one with a bathtub.
Thanks to the unusual large windows, the villa has splendid natural light which makes the interiors bright and luminous and these openings allow the summer breezes to naturally refresh the rooms during the summer.
The house has undergone significant renovations both internally and externally. The walls have been painted in terracotta shades, the shutters in green/blue pastel colours – the typical tones of the farmhouses of the past.
The choice of these colours by the owners preserves the natural rusticity of the house and its charm.
The sale includes 1.16 hectares of land ensuring full privacy. There are some olive trees, beautiful mulberry trees and an old acacia near the house. The owners take perfect care of the land which boasts a varied quality of Mediterranean plants, flowers and herbs such as rosemary, thyme and lavender.
This quiet and peaceful environment creates a unique and romantic atmosphere in the natural and uncontaminated context of the property where you can hear the birds singing and see deer and hares running free in the fields.
Part of the land surrounding the house is completely fenced, ideal for pets or infants, a perfect place for them to play in complete safety.
There are gates to the rear of the house and also a large parking area and access to the south side.
The above ground swimming pool, surrounded on two sides by a teak wood terrace, is perfectly set into the ground, a perfect place to admire the sunsets and the unique view over the city of Volterra and its surrounding countryside.
