Stunningly Restored Farmhouse of 250 mq on its own Estate with 100 mq of Stables and Gently Rolling Hills
This is the ultimate home for someone who wishes to be secluded by not isolated. The property is very easily accessed on mainly tarmac roads.
The property is divided into the main house and a private guest apartment with its own entrance to make it completely autonomous.
The restoration took place between 2007 and 2011 using local good-quality materials in keeping with the traditions of the house.
The ground floor has vaulted ceilings and is heated with pellet fired heat pumps of the latest generation. There is a large, eat-in kitchen, a family dining room and access into the guest apartment. This has terracotta floors.
There are stone steps up to the huge living room of 30 mq off which is a small kitchenette. This was once the main entrance to the farmhouse. The owners made this to have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There was a fourth bedroom originally planned here but the owners took advantage of its dimensions to make a stunning sitting room with fireplace with a long terrace that runs the full length of it under which is the lemon house. The roof is well insulated and the fireplace forces out hot air for the 'shoulder seasons'.
Back on the ground floor, there is a laundry with access from the outside. The guest suite is also accessed from the outside and has its own bathroom. The guest suite currently is an open space with the bedroom leading into the living area which then leads out to the covered 'portico' for 'al fresco' dining.
The systems within the house are exceptional with solar panels heating the water and with an acculator for hot water. In the Summer, these systems can also be used for air-conditioning. The entire complex has three-phase electrics.
Water is provided from the Fiora Acquaduct, there is also a fully working artisian well. There is a modern accumulation tank for water present.
Outside the 12.24 hectares of land is partly made into a formal rose garden and partly left for the horses to pasture. It is registered as orchard, olive grove and deciduous woodland.
The horses live in incredible luxury with 4 very large boxes of 16 mq each as well as a wide corridor. This building has plenty of space for all the farming equipment including 2 tractors-
The house will be sold with all the equipment needed to maintain the land, garden and stables but is sold, at this point, unfurnished.
The property is just 15 km from the sea, 36 km from the spa and Saturnia.
