This beautiful 4 bedroom villa with a swimming pool and a garden of approximately 100 m2.
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 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 a 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 adds 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 the garden, on a high rise that 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.
