This beautiful 4 bedroom villa with a swimming pool, and almost an acre of land, sits in the immediate countryside of Palaia, among the South Pisa hills, immersed in the Tuscan countryside and only a short drive from all services and amenities in Palaia which is only 3.5 km from the property, Livorno, on the seaside, is only 49 km away and you can reach Pisa International Airport in less than 40 minutes.
The property provides approximately 280 m2 of accommodation over 2 floors plus a usable attic and is laid down as follows:
The main entrance is on the ground floor and opens onto a very generous living area with a double aspect fireplace, and double doors opening onto the rear garden and the panoramic views beyond. This open space leads to the spacious dining room and a large separate kitchen. All these rooms enjoy a south facing exposure with plenty of natural light coming through the French doors and windows opening onto the garden. Also on this floor are a laundry/utility room, and a bathroom with shower. There is access to a large room which is used as a “taverna”, the Italian word to describe a living area separate but linked to the main house used to host parties and dinners, with its own built in wooden fireplace or oven/barbecue.
A staircase from the centre of the ground floor, which also constitutes the natural division between the living room and the dining room, leads to the first floor, again with plenty of natural light flowing in from the many windows, here there are 4 bedrooms of which 3 are doubles, and 2 bathrooms with shower and/or bathtub. At the far end of the corridor, there is a small storage room, which also leads to a spiral staircase leading onto the attic, which has a fair height to allow for the creation of living space or a bedroom, and potentially also add a further bathroom if one so wishes.
All utilities are in full working order, and the rooms show large spaces and the usefulness of natural light.
The grounds are very well kept, and fully fenced, and there is also the possibility to acquire further land around to add more privacy.
The property benefits from a beautifully appointed swimming pool which is located in a sunny position with lovely views of both Palaia and the countryside, with its own gazebo.
There is an automated gate to access the property, and a short drive leads to the parking area and the house. This private villa is set on 1,000 m2 of garden, forming part of land of some 4,000m2 (0.988 acre) on a high rise which shows Palaia to the North and the valley towards Castelfalfi and then Volterra to the South, surrounded by views and vegetation. Although a modern building, it still shows the warmth of Tuscan living, as it was built by a resident in late 1900, thus reuniting more modern building technologies to allow a comfortable living and for those who wish for more “traditional” interiors, we have architects who can easily and without much effort and costs create a more charming look to the internal rooms, like beamed ceilings for example.
The property is ideal as a second home for a family who enjoys the countryside and the comfort of having all the services and facilities nearby, and it also has the potential to generate a healthy return investment with tourist rental.
There is a further possibility to purchase a plot of land which in total would make 4 hectares (9.88 acres) which has 2 buildings of 156 m2, currently classified as laboratory and stable, with the purpose of renovating and creating a second dwelling, either separately or as part of the first building. The price for the property with the larger piece of land would be €680.000
