A typical Tuscan home in the centre of a gracious medieval hamlet with the magic atmosphere of old times. A heaven for those seeking absolute tranquillity: narrow alleys, little lovely stone houses with wrought iron balconies decorated with colourful geraniums.
The house was renovated in 1989 by the owner, a well known Tuscan painter, who has been inspired by this unique location.
The house has a large living/dining area with fireplace, a kitchenette, a bathroom and a storage room on the ground floor.
The first floor, with access via an antique stone staircase, has two double bedrooms with views of the hills of Volterra.
The rear of the house has a small pergola where you could eat out in summer. A door on the rear of the house at a lower level is the entrance to the cellar of 28 sqm.: it needs to be fully restored but it could be easily joined to the rest of the house and converted into a tavern or a third large bedroom.
The property needs to be modernised and the electrical, heating and plumbing systems to be adapted to the new regulations. Large storage area in the loft.
The house is in good condition, it just needs to be modernised. The electrical, plumbing and heating systems need to be updated. The hot water and heating system could be changed to benefit from geothermal energy provided by a station nearby.
The roof and the floors are in good condition, the structure is solid.
The exposed wooden beams and terracotta ceiling tiles have been painted white. Terrazzo flooring in the living area and original terracotta tiles in the bedrooms.
Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, Medieval hamlet in the heart of Tuscany and in a geothermal area, on the hills 576 metres above the sea level, south of Pisa, bordering with the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, halfway between Volterra and Massa Marittima. Therefore very close to the nice beaches of Cecina, Donoratico and Bibbona. Its origins date back to the XIII century but the hamlet has been perfectly preserved by its inhabitants and the local council; just 5 minutes walk from the old area the new village outside offers all the services and amenities.
Parking - a 5 minute walk from the house.
