We are pleased to offer this lovely 5 bedroom palazzo with garden, in the historic centre of the small hamlet of Partino yet with superb views over the surrounding countryside, only some 2.5km from Palaia, and less than 45 minutes to Pisa airport or the nearest coast.
The palazzo, which was completely renovated in 2016 including the roof has been divided into two apartments providing about 280m2 of accommodation and ideal for B&B accommodation. The first apartment consists of a hallway leading to kitchen, living room with dining area, bedroom and bathroom, designed for use of the owner running the B&B. Stairs lead across to the other apartment where on the ground floor there is the communal entrance and a boiler room. On the first floor there is a spacious bedroom with private bathroom, landing, storage room and kitchen/living room, bathroom and access to the first balcony. On the second floor we find a landing with a further 2 bedrooms each with its own private bathroom and access to the second balcony. Further internal stairs lead to the third floor which is the loft area and where you find another large bedroom with its own bathroom. During the renovation, solar panels were added on the roof to provide hot water, whilst there is also a gas boiler for heating, and an industrial washer and dryer. From the two balconies there are beautiful panoramic views across the countryside of Palaia, and close to the palazzo there is parking which could be used for prospective clients if the tourist business is continued. Just 100 metres from the palazzo, we find the garden of some 4000m2 (just shy of an acre) with an area for relaxation and barbeque. On this piece of garden there is a small annex in stone of some 16m2 with high walls, which could be developed to make a small house for dining and even changing room for a pool if desired or even a further dependence. Although the land does not currently have any electricity or water, there is a connection for both utilities at the edge of the land. This is an ideal property to develop either for tourist use or even as a main building for a large family.
Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy. Now years later read some of their story.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.
When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
