- Countryside View
A beautifully presented and imaginatively renovated farmhouse, situated amidst the iconically-beautiful Tuscan landscape, in a very desirable location just 2.5 km from the pretty town of Lajatico.
The house is immersed in beautiful countryside, with fragrant fields, gentle rolling hills, glorious vistas, and yet not at all isolated.
This delightful two storey property comes with living space of 240m2 and has recently undergone an extensive and meticulous restoration programme. The owners have preserved and respected the integrity of the original structure, and amalgamated contemporary interior design elements which blend perfectly with the more rustic natural stone and brick features.
Unusually, this elegant farmhouse offers very spacious light bright and airy interiors, with large windows and several bespoke arched glass doors providing 360 degree panoramic vistas of the surrounding countryside, including the most spectacular view towards Lajatico.
This charming little town in Tuscany is well known by many as the home of Andrea Bocelli, and it provides comprehensive facilities in terms of local services, including a bank, a pharmacy, several food shops, a baker and a number of excellent restaurants and bars all within five minutes drive from the house.
The imaginatively designed interior of this lovely property provides expansive and spectacular open plan living spaces and yet retains a cosy ambience. The beautifully equipped kitchen is generously proportioned with large picture windows on three sides and an adjacent useful storage/larder room. There is an additional separate reception room on the ground floor, (which could easily become a fourth bedroom if required).
Access to the first floor is by internal wooden staircase which leads to a large bright landing. This area leads to a lovely double aspect master bedroom with en suite shower room, and two further bedrooms and an additional shower room. Also from the landing, there is a small study area which features another attractive glass door giving access to an outside terrace from where one can appreciate the exceptionally lovely views.
Outside, the property is approached via a short well maintained lane and is very attractively situated, immersed within three glorious hectares of land, with several fruit trees and a small vigneto.
There are two original outbuildings, delightfully situated near to the house. One is an old piggery and the other has a bread oven, and a storage area. Additionally, the owners have obtained permission to build additional 25m2m to the main house, a 20m2 loggia, between the kitchen and living-area, (the foundation for the loggia has been already executed); a green house and finally a sheltered car-port.
There are several different outside dining areas, from where one can appreciate the views and the refreshing summer breezes. Within the property boundary, there is a fully fenced zone which completely encircles the house and this extends to approximately half a hectare.
This sale offer presents a rare opportunity for a discerning buyer to acquire a stunning luxury property in a prestigious location, because there are very few restored farmhouses of this calibre within the near vicinity of Lajatico. The exceptional position of this property provides all the convenience of excellent local amentiies within minutes from the house, and yet, it is possible to sit in absolute peace and tranquility listening to birdsong, the bees buzzing and the breeze rustling the grasses. T
his is an exceptional property in an idyllic setting, and the house is very well positioned geographically to enable easy access to all of the iconically famous locations in Tuscany: Pisa international airport is only 45 minutes by car (46 km); the closest beaches are 55 minutes (35 km); the picturesque town of Volterra can be reached in half an hour (24 km); Castelfalfi golf course in 40 minutes (30 km) and in a little bit more than one hour it is possible to reach the most attractive towns of Tuscany such as Florence (85km); Siena (76 km); Lucca (57 km) and only a few minutes away from Andrea Bocelli's Teatro del Silencio with its spectacular annual open air summer concerts.
