Property description

Lovely, fully restored, stone farmhouse with a panoramic view over the countryside below, just outside the pretty town of Chianni in the Valdera region of Tuscany. With five hectares (around 12 acres) of land.

Currently arranged as two independent units, one upstairs which forms beautiful owners' accommodation, and one downstairs which is beautiful and is let during the long summer season to provide good rental income. It would be possible to easily connect the two parts with an internal staircase to form and magnificent, spacious Tuscan home which would then have three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs.

The upper floor is accessed via a partially covered external staircase: this part consists of a lovely living room with a fully functional fireplace, a large 'dine-in' kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The panoramic views from each of these upstairs windows are quite breathtaking. The house has been renovated with quality finishes and fine attention to detail and now forms a sociable place to relax.

The ground floor was completely renovated in 2015 with a large living area open to a custom-made kitchen, a double bedroom and modern bathroom with shower. From the living room double glass doors open to the fabulous wooden porch from where you can enjoy the enchanting, far-reaching view.

The surrounding garden is well-kept and features a special rose garden which boasts over 400 different varieties of roses. There are also two olive groves with a total of 150 olive trees that provide excellent extra virgin olive oil, surrounding woods of chestnut, oak and holm oaks and also some apple and cherry trees. There is a lovely wooden tree house and numerous spaces to sit and relax to enjoy the view or to share an aperitivo with friends. There is plenty of space to install a swimming pool (subject to planning permission).

The house is accessed on good roads from Chianni, with the last part on an unpaved road which is maintained in good condition. Plenty of parking.

Chianni, nearby, in the heart of Tuscany, is a pretty well-kept and perfectly Tuscan town, coated in pots of red geraniums and full of cobbled narrow lanes which open onto intimate little piazzas: stunning churches are around every corner. The ancient little town rises above the rolling Tuscan hills, so there are open views in all directions. There are good services including shops, banks, restaurants, post office, friendly cafes and interesting events throughout the year. The most important of these are the olive oil festival and the wild boar festival. Pontedera, nearby, is an interesting town and has the main train station on the Pisa- Florence line. The villa is ideally located and transport links are good.

Chianni sits within the area of Valdera in central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills is dotted with medieval villages, castles and cobbled lanes which are flanked by tall dark green cypress trees. The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages and the landscape is made up of golden meadows of wheat, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization. Here in Lajatico, Andrea Bocelli, the world renowned tenor, created the famous Teatro di Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where a natural amphitheatre creates a breathtaking setting perfect for musical events. In the summer months Bocelli performs a special concert each year alongside internationally famous musicians, which attracts a global audience. Nearby is also Casciana Terme, which has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence all full of art and architecture to explore, are all within easy reach.

Distances: Chianni 3 km, Lajatico (Teatro del Silenzio) 15 km, Pontedera (trains) 20 kms, Castelfalfi (golf and spa resort) 25 kms, Volterra 30 kms, Beaches 35 kms, San Gimignano 45 kms, Pisa (airport) 40 km, Lucca 70 km, Florence 85 km.
