We are pleased to offer for sale this beautiful 3 bedroomed totally renovated haybarn with superb views and located in the countryside just 7 minutes from the city of Volterra, 1 hour from Pisa airport, 40 minutes from the sea and under an hour from the historic cities of San Gimignano, Siena and Florence. The property is reached from an asphalt country road of some 3km and provides a main building of some 150m2 over two floors, a covered car port of some 7.5m2 and all surrounded by 6000m2 (about 1.48 acres) of land which includes an olive grove. Entrance into the house is across a lovely covered portico ideal for meals during the summer months then into a large living room with typical Volterra style arched ceilings making it a lovely relaxing area. Leading off this area is a fully fitted kitchen with dining area and a bathroom with shower. Internal stairs lead to the first floor and sleeping accommodation which consists of 3 bedrooms. Attached to the property on the ground floor is a further room which is used as a laundry room with ironing facilities and storage room and also benefits from a further bathroom with shower. The house has been completely renovated with all new certified fittings, typical Tuscan doors and windows, new underfloor heating run by pellet stove, and air conditioning. The house currently holds a Class A Energy certificate, but with the installation of solar panelling could reach A++. To the south of the property there is a wall with a lovely terrace on the upper level which is accessible both from the master bedroom as well as from external stairs adjacent to the laundry room on the ground floor. It would be possible to create a swimming pool here which would have superb views over the surrounding countryside and hills.

Also in front of the property is a large covered portico with ample room to keep multiple vehicles. An excellent property with further potential if desired.
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.
