House for sale at € 890000 in TerricciolaName/Address:
Set in a small and charming village in the province of Pisa, this magnificent home offers the advantages of living in a quiet rural setting, while also being part of a lively and welcoming community. This provides a delightful living experience, and a good level of security.
Well positioned just 30 minutes from Pisa airport, and 50 minutes from Florence, other major centres are easily accessible, such as Volterra, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, Cinque Terre and Portofino. The ski slopes of Abetone can be reached in 2 hours. The main Italian rail network is accessed at Pontedera, only 10 kilometres away.
The house, of around 280 sq m, consists of 4 levels, conveniently connected from a large and elegant entry hall by a spacious and effortless staircase.
The rooms are of good size and light and airy, comprising 3 bedrooms, 2 kitchens (one a summer entertaining / garden room), 2 lounge rooms and 1 small sitting room, 2 dining rooms, 3 bathrooms with WC, 1 separate WC, and also a large laundry room adjoining the downstairs bathroom.
The house originally housed two shops, fronting the street. One of them, now being used as an artist´s studio, could easily become a fourth bedroom. From the main kitchen on the first floor, a spacious, vine covered terrace faces south, overlooking the spectacular view. This catches all the winter sun, but also has an overhead electric blind which covers the whole terrace to alleviate the summer heat, making it a very useful outside entertaining room all year round.
The house also boasts a fully underground wine cellar. The terrace overlooks a small garden wrapped around the rear of the house, also facing the view. This garden is accessed from a small private road, jointly owned with the neighbouring house, which provides permanent and private parking spaces for 2 cars. All the services, plumbing, wiring, heating are all new and comply with current regulations.
All renovations have been carried out to the highest possible standards, with the full approvals required by the local authorities. The town sits along a ridge line on the Pisan Wine Road, a picturesque region noted for its fine wine and olive oil. The town has a population of about 300, and supports a bar, a bar/pizzeria, an alimentare/grocer, a butcher, a bank, a doctor, a post office and 2 churches. A supermarket is just 5 minutes away, and scattered around the surrounding valley are over a dozen small towns, each with its own character, and an interesting array of restaurants and shops.
A delightful place to live. A property packed with soul and character.
