ID-Casa La Vie
The entrance is up the newly restored stairs and via a wide terrace into the front reception room which has a wood burning stove and measures over 30 mq. It has beams and a beautiful terracotta floor.
The house has two wings and could give an opportunity to be divided into separate apartments meeting in the middle in the large, central reception room if desired.
The kitchen is very large and traditional with a 'range' and plenty of space to eat-in the kitchen. Off the kitchen is a sizable pantry as well as a traditional cloakroom for storage (as opposed to a WC).
The southern wing houses a delightful en-suite bedroom. There is also a studio leading to a dual-aspect study.
The 'pietra di Matraia' stone stairs lead up to another, very large sitting room off which one finds 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. 2 of the bedrooms share the powder blue family bathroom which has a tub.
There is a southern suite of two bedrooms which share a bathroom with rain shower.
The owner currently has a suite in the northern part of the home which comprises a snug sitting room, main bedroom and large bathroom with rain shower.
The owner has obtained permission for an in-ground pool. All the bathrooms are brand new, the kitchen is brand new and the septic system is brand new.
There is a garage in the garden to the side of the house. Behind the house is a tiled courtyard which was the original entrance to this house from the mule track.
There are lots of fantastic walking paths leading out directly from the home going up into the hills. Erika's shop is just 1 km away from the house where bread is made.
In front of the house, there are gently sloping fields where horses could be kept.
Underneath the house, there are huge cantinas that are even large enough for table tennis.
