The real estate compendium, immersed in approximately 50 hectares of land, consists of three buildings for a total of approximately 955 square meters, composed of an old farmhouse, an agricultural annex partly used as a farm machinery storage area, and partly converted into a comfortable apartment, as well as a large barn that has been renovated in the structure but left unfinished internally.
This prestigious property for sale in the hills of Pisa, currently used as an agritourism farm, is located in an area of great naturalistic value and enjoys a marvelous panorama, due to its dominating position approximately 140 m above sea level.
Access is via a well-maintained dirt road that crosses the property and skirts the tidy vineyard, leading both to the main house and to the parking area. The latter is on a lower terrace than the one where the buildings are located and can comfortably accommodate about 12 cars.
The main farmhouse, spread over two levels on the ground and first floor for a total of approximately 560 square meters, conserving in its central body a perfectly maintained ancient watchtower dating back to the year 1000.
The building, meticulously restored by the current owners, boasts the typical and characteristic Tuscan-style finishes, such as ceilings with wooden beams and terracotta tiles, stone interior walls, tuff inserts, stone arches, terracotta, or red brick floors, as well as various modern comforts such as armored windows, shatterproof glass and air conditioning. Currently the farmhouse is divided into five independent apartments, where guests can enjoy their privacy, as well as large common areas. The apartments are easily connected to each other in case you want a property to live in as your main residence.
Entering via the original external stone staircase, on the first floor we are greeted by a very spacious living room with an imposing stone fireplace and very high ceilings. The living room provides access to the three flats, in addition to a bathroom serving this common area, and to the charming turret, an ideal area to devote oneself to the pleasure of reading in total relaxation.The three flats, each with its own independent heating system, are of different sizes, but all organized in a simple and elegant style. The apartments have a living area with a kitchenette with marble sinks in the style of Tuscan country houses, bathrooms with bathtubs, and spacious bedrooms, whose views are magnificent postcards with views of the surrounding hills. The smallest is currently used by the owners and is connected to a room used as a reception and office. An internal staircase leads to the ground floor where we find a common area available to guests and composed of a spacious dining room, excellent for breakfasts, events and tastings. This area is connected to the original kitchen equipped with modern stainless-steel equipment and furnishings, which combine well with the large 19th century fireplace. This part is completed by the pantry and a technical room which has independent access from the outside.
This level is completed by two further independent apartments with direct access from the garden and characterized by portions of tuff and rock walls.
A few steps from the main farmhouse there is a second building of approximately 125 m2, partly used as a storage area for agricultural machinery and partly used as a comfortable annex, completely renovated and composed of an open space living area with open kitchen, a hallway, two large double bedrooms, a media room, two bathrooms as well as a spacious outdoor area with barbecue area.
Proceeding towards the vineyard we find the third building, a barn of approximately 270 m2 which rises on two main levels: on the ground floor it consists of a spacious cellar and bathroom, plus a 33 m2 loggia, while on the first floor the old granary with the typical mandolato. The three buildings are surrounded by a well-kept 5000 square meters flat garden with lawn bordered by floral and aromatic plants typical of the Mediterranean maquis, such as laurels, olive trees and cypresses, from which various paths lead to wonderful natural inland corners and to the most wooded parts of the property.
The swimming pool, reached by stone steps, is located on a terrace at a lower level than the three buildings. It is surrounded by greenery, in a reserved position and has a rectangular shape. The pool is equipped with a chlorine system, finished with a travertine border and covered in sand-coloured PVC to maintain the typical colours of the area.
The property is an excellent investment for anyone who would like to invest in an accommodation business with an agritourism vocation or for anyone who would like a rather spacious residence in nature, but not isolated and just a few minutes' drive from ancient villages, such as San Miniato, known for its white truffles.
