Apartment of 70 sqm, on the first floor of an ancient building on the main street in the historical village of Montopoli Val D'Arno, with a small separate garden and cellar for storage.
The apartment has been fully renovated in keeping with its original features and consists of dining room with built-in kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and one central room to be used for multiple purposes, for instance as a study.
The height of the ceiling offers the opportunity to build a mezzanine.
A cellar/small garage which is also the laundry room is located on the ground floor and opens onto the main street.
On the rear of the building there is a fenced garden of 54 sqm with a paved area and grass and fantastic views of the countryside. There is a table and barbecue to enjoy the warm summer evenings and the spring days, sitting and chatting with a glass of local wine and tasting the typical tasty food.
Also part of the same property is a small plot of land of 45 sqm where the current owners grow their own vegetables.
There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the centre of the small village; just stepping out from the main access door downstairs you can walk down the quiet street, buy some bread at the bakery across the street, drink a cappuccino at the bar, have dinner at the popular and excellent restaurant 'I Quattro Gigli', go to the butcher's, the pharmacy or the bank.
Perfect for those who wish to have everything you need on the doorstep without needing to use the car.
Just outside the village are wonderful walks, the country lanes crossing the hills are a perfect place for walking, horseback riding, biking, bird watching or even truffle hunting for experts with a well trained dog.
The house has been recently refurbished but the original details are still intact and well maintained: cotto flooring in the lounge, 'graniglia' marble in the other rooms, original stone door frame dating back to the 1700s. Thanks to the high celings a mezzanine could be built.
In the centre of Montopoli Val D'Arno, a medieval village, half way between Pisa and Florence.
In Montopoli the ancient Parish Church of Santo Stefano, the Pian della Rocca, as well as the Renaissance Oratory of S. Maria del Soccorso and the walking path down the town walls, are well worth visiting.
In Montopoli the ancient tradition of Artistic Ceramics (decorated earthenware) of Montopoli is still alive.
Thanks to the main road (superstrada FI-PI-LI) down in the valley, 5 km from the hills, it is easy to reach almost all Tuscan cities within an hour's drive.
