Beautifully restored Farmhouse for Sale situated in an idyllic quintessentially Tuscan location, amongst gently rolling hills with views of nearby medieval hill-top towns.
Sitting at the foot of Volterra, this once dilapidated property has been brought back to life by its current owners. Whilst endeavouring to maintain the authenticity of the ancient farmhouse, elements such as space, natural light and practical yet comfortable living were the main objectives during restoration. Upon seeing the property it is evident that they succeeded in reaching each objective in grand style.
The property is composed of two buildings and an outhouse each of which are connected by stone arches, creating a very charming internal courtyard perfect for entertaining and out-door dining. The lounge area features beautiful loggia which lead outside making the courtyard feel like an extension of the house. The main house offers approx. 370 sqm of floorspace which composes an open-plan living room / diner, an office, open plan lounge area with fireplace, main entrance / hallway with guest bathroom.
The custom built stone stairs which seem to float without assistance create a predominant focal point in the main entrance. The whole of the ground floor enjoys an abundance of natural light, something which is not easy to find in farmhouse of this age. The first floor is composed of two very spacious master suites each with en-suite bathrooms, fireplaces and access to balconies. There is also a laundry room on the first floor.
The quality of the materials and finishes is of the highest standard and maintained in immaculate condition. The house possesses under-floor heating, resin floors, wood burning fireplaces, ADSL internet, gas and electricity.
The guest house offers approx.100 sqm of floorspace and its current lay-out is lounge, gym, bathroom, bedroom with en-suite. The gym was previously intended to be a second bedroom which would make this structure into a charming two bedroom, two bathroom house with lounge. Again this property enjoys lots of lovely natural light and it has 3 access points from the outside, perfect for family living around the pool and courtyard.
