ITALY, TUSCANY, PISA, VOLTERRA
For sale detached authentic farmhouse in the Volterra countryside, only 13 km from the Etruscan town and its services.
The property is in the unspoiled hills of Volterra and has a fantastic view. It is accessed by a 5 km unpaved road in good condition and is not isolated as there are other houses in the neighbourhood, which don’t however disturb the privacy.
The house was built from scratch in 2010 and all work was carried out to an extremely high standard and in typical Tuscan style. Features include exposed stone and bricks, terracotta floors and beamed ceilings.
The house measures 280 sqm on three floors and is composed as follows:
entrance from the portico with wood burning oven, which opens onto the living room/kitchen with a large fireplace and views over Volterra.
Also on the ground floor there is a bedroom with en-suite bathroom and stairs leading to the first floor which comprises a big bathroom and a main bedroom with amazing en-suite double bathroom.
From the living area on the ground floor, another staircase leads to the basement area which consists of a cellar/winebar with cross-vaulted ceilings, a large storage room, a laundry room and a technical room with access to the outside.
Also in the basement there is a huge room (storeroom) which could be converted into a spa.
All utilities are connected and there is LPG underfloor heating (in addition to a cast iron stove and huge fireplace) and mains water. The house is well insulated with a 12 cm insulation layer on the roof.
The sale includes 1.5 hectares of land, partly fenced with garden, fruit trees, olive trees, Mediterranean herbs, a carport and a wooden outbuilding for storing garden tools.
Planning regulations allow the possibility of building a swimming pool, a permit needs to be applied for and our team can assist.
The sale includes part of the furniture.
This is a perfect solution not only as second home but also to live on a permanent basis thanks to the good size, the space and quality of the work.
The view is breathtaking, the location is secluded but at the same time not too isolated, it is the dream Tuscan house.
