The exclusive property consists of a restored 19th century villa and is built on three levels with a living space of 300 square metres. This is in addition to a farmhouse which requires renovation and adjacent outbuildings. The property is complemented by beautiful surrounding green areas for its exclusive use, and plots of agricultural land distributed around the properties, with a total area of 43.14.96 ha. Magnificent panoramic 180° view of the Pistoia valley with the stunning backdrop of the Tuscan/Emilian background.

Classe Energetica G e IPE ≥177.975 kwh/m2anno.

The property is located within the municipality of Serravalle Pistoiese (PT), near a small town which is about 3 km from the property where all basic amenities can be found, set on a hill 165 metres above sea level, located within the Montalbano hills that lie between the beautiful countryside of Pistoia, Prato and Florence. From this beautiful location that is completely surrounded by nature, you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view in the direction of the north-east valley of Florence and Pistoia with Tuscan/Emilian area in the background, all dotted with important medieval towns of Serravalle, Monsummano Alto, Montevettolini, Larciano, Cecina, Lamporecchio, Vinci (birthplace of Leonardo), Tizzana, Carmignano, Artimino, Capraia and the Medici villas of the Renaissance.

The distances from the property to the main places of interest are:
Pistoia (centre):12 km.
Florence (centre): 45 km.
Florence (Amerigo Vespucci Airport):35 km.
Montecatini Terme: 23 km.
Lucca: 50 km.
Pisa (Galileo Galilei Airport): 80 km.

The property consists of an Art Nouveau villa over two levels above ground plus dovecote tower/attics, of 300 sqm in size as well as attics, garages, cellar and laundry room.

Below illustrates specifically the distribution of rooms:
- Basement: cellar and garages;
-Ground floor: entrance, hallway, kitchen, pantry, study, dining room, living room, bathroom and utility room;
- 1 ° floor: hallway, 6 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms;
- 2 ° floor Attic: dovecote tower including 3 rooms currently used as attics.

The villa is located directly alongside another part of the building which was built at a later date and is not currently in use, consisting of 2 rooms on the ground floor and 3 rooms + w.c. on the first floor.

Adjacent to the main villa there is currently a disused farmhouse, which is located on 2 levels above ground and is 120 square metres in size. Here on the ground floor, there are the former stables that occupy most of this floor, a kitchen with an oven and 2 living rooms; on the first floor there are 4 rooms, 1 W.C., and a terrace with panoramic views over the valley.
There are also 2 agricultural outbuildings which were former barns, in poor condition.

The property is complemented by its own private land which surrounds its buildings, at the entrance of the property; there is a large square, park which is characterised by box hedges, lime trees, oaks, cypresses, maritime pines, ash, courtyards and slab flooring. In addition there are 38 units of agricultural land for an overall total of 43.14.96 ha. of which, a major part are woods and partly cultivated with an olive grove.

The park surrounding the property also has an outdoor lighting system. It should be noted there is a spring at the property but in the past was transferred to the "Publiacqua", public waterworks.

State of repair:
The villa is in a beautiful architectural multi storey complex which is not perfectly uniform or symmetrical, having been built during the nineteenth century and later expanded, however this has not adversely affected the overall appearance of the building: The exterior has plastered facades, and the tower has brick facades, while the roof is characterized by brick and clay tiles. The villa is surrounded by paved river stone flooring and more recently terracotta floors. The courtyard directly adjacent to the villa, is elevated above the underlying terracing, it is surrounded at the front by a retaining stone wall which in turn is enclosed by iron railings characterized by a beautiful dual ascent staircase which gives it a lovely sense of movement as well as being aesthetically pleasing.

The interior of the main building is characterized by mixed ceilings, partly vaulted, partly painted vaults and partly wooden beamed with terracotta tiles. Even the internal floors are of mixed materials such as decorated tiles in cement and grit, decorated coloured tiles from the end of the 1800’s to the 1900’s, and original terracotta. The wooden windows and doors are perfectly in keeping with the style of the property (which probably dates from the time it was built or at any other time of restoration/later expansion). There are also exterior wooden shutters.
As described above, beginning with the structure (façades, roof, ceilings, load-bearing walls) and the interior (floors, walls, systems, and windows and doors) are currently in good condition, fully operational and well maintained but undoubtedly require general modernization with the contribution of works aimed at an improvement/preservation of internal and external systems (plumbing, water etc), updating bathroom sanitary ware, with the possibility of integrating techniques designed to reduce energy consumption.

The maintenance status of the external green areas is in excellent condition because the ornamental plants, gardens have been very well maintained with the exception however of the exterior paved area which has deteriorated particularly in the north side of the building and this therefore requires attention. The property is therefore in general in good condition but nevertheless could be improved with work carried out aimed at returning the right "energy" to the property as well as some useful measures to increase comfort, while trying as much as possible to meet current housing standards without altering the property’s personality.

The adjacent brick and stone farmhouse require complete restoration as well as the two outbuildings (former barns). Such buildings have good potential because of their structural style that has remained unchanged since their construction and their location over the Pistoia valley.

Land registry details:
For this luxury villa in Tuscany, as with all our properties for sale, we have carried out an in-depth and detailed analysis of the urban, town and land planning that for privacy reasons; will be provided at time of interest. This verification enables our domestic and international buyers to have a detailed technical property report.

Potential Land Use:
The beautiful natural and panoramic location, proximity to Florence and excellent accessibility to main roads, make this property a beautiful prestigious estate that would be ideal as a main residence or as a second home. There is the potential to benefit from the generous size of the farmhouse and the respective outbuildings, in that a portion of the property could be allocated to a tourist residence use to maximise on the annual operating costs of the property.
