An attractive stone farmhouse in an elevated panoramic position on the southern edge of a pretty borgo. Peacefully situated in unspoilt countryside, the property is conveniently located within seven kilometres of the ancient Etruscan hilltop town of Volterra. Set amidst pretty landscaped gardens, this property is ideally positioned for convenient access to local amenities and further afield, with good links to the cultural Art cities and the many famous regions of Tuscany.
The principal house is renovated and habitable but would benefit from a programme of sensitive refurbishment requiring general updating throughout. The accommodation is currently arranged as three independant units but could easily be adapted and reinstated to create a delightful single occupancy family home. Part of the structure was originally an old chapel. Adjacent to the main building is a magnificent 200 year old stone barn which has been well preserved and is undoubtedly a significant asset to the property. These old stone fienile are not often found in good original condition, so this offers great potential as an additional development opportunity.
The property faces due south and the floors measure circa 340 square metres with an additional 80 square metres unrestored space in the barn. There are currently six bedrooms and three bathrooms within the principle building, with an overall total of 12 rooms. The property has a large covered loggia which offers further potential volume, and subject to planning consent , this can be partially closed and re-modelled to provide additional habitable living space.
Outside, the gardens are well maintained with mature plants and shrubs and excellent uninterrupted vistas to the east, south and west. There is an overground pool which is well protected by a mature hedge, and because the precedent for a pool is already in evidence, this could very easily be replaced with an integrated pool subject to local planning permission.
Once refurbished and developed further, this property presents an ideal opportunity to create a beautiful Tuscan home. The buildings have all the credentials in terms of privacy, charm and tranquility, and offer a marvellous opportunity for someone to develop a special and characterful house in a prime location.
