Property description

Elegant, period four bed property with private entrance and panoramic views. This character property (220 sqm) forms the spacious, upper part of an historical building which dates back to the 1800s, and the property has recently been refurbished and is now presented in excellent condition with high ceilings, bright and sunny rooms overlooking the village and surrounding Tuscan hills.The property has the benefit of a small terrace at the top which is a special spot which retains a sense of peace and tranquility, and this terrace has the potential to be enlarged significantly.

The property entrance is up some external steps to a lobby and to the private main entrance door which is on the first floor level; the accommodation is on two levels (first and second floor) with a loft and balcony above (on the third floor). It would be possible to expand the existing terrace into a much larger area to provide a stunning roof terrace with wonderful views and a real wow factor. The house has just been renovated this year (2021) and was intended as a long term home. However, the sellers have had an unexpected career move to another part of Italy which has caused the sale.

Entering into the first floor level, the apartment comprises a large corridor, a spacious suite with living area and new kitchen and good bathroom with double bed area, which could be used as a self contained unit. Upstairs on the second floor there is a large entrance hall or sitting area with panoramic window, a large kitchen area with two windows overlooking the hills and Volterra, and three more large rooms and a new bathroom. On the third floor is the roof balcony and the attic which could be used to extend the existing terrace surface to create a stunning feature, or it could be converted into extra living area.

There are high ceilings, lovely old doors and glasswork, original flooring and many original features have been retained throughout. The house is ready to move into, the kitchen on the second floor just needs to be installed. All the services are connected and are alongside the plumbing, electrics, boiler and shutters which are also all new. Mains gas heating throughout. Easy car access and parking at the property. There is a great restaurant very close by.

The large, stone, historical building also holds two other properties, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor which do not form part of this sale. So there are three private properties in the building and no part is communal or shared.

The property is located in Chianni, a picturesque little town where the houses are huddled together and the narrow stone streets are flanked with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, and are all within walking distance. Surrounded by chestnut woods and olive groves, Chianni has splendid views over the valley below. There is a sense of timelessness and calm, yet it is only 40 minutes from Pisa airport. Ideally located, as Castiglioncello and Cecina on the coast, the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, and the remains of Etruscan and historic towns, such as Volterra and San Gimignano, are all within a 30 minutes drive.

Chianni sits within the area of Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees epitomise the Tuscan landscape. The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages, castles and country churches and a landscape with golden meadows of wheat dancing in the breeze, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilisation. Here Andrea Boccelli , renowned tenor, was born and it is in the heart of Valdera, in Lajatico, that he created the famous Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where a natural amphitheatre creates a breathtaking outdoor setting. In the summer months he performs a concert which attracts a global audience, alongside internationally renowned musicians. Nearby is also Casciana Terme, which has revived thermal waters and spa facilities with indoor and outdoor pools, massages and treatments and is a pretty town with a busy central piazza and cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence with all the art and architectural treasures to discover and are all are within easy reach.

Distances: Chianni on the doorstep, Palaia 25 km, Volterra 30 km, San Gimignano 45 km, Pisa (airport) 45 km, Lucca 75 km, Siena 85 km, Florence 90 km.
