Full Description

Typically Tuscan 4 bed character property set in close to 2 hectares of land, on the edge of a beautiful village.

Exceptional character property with comfortable living space and four bedrooms, set in a wonderful location with 1.7 hectares (4 acres) of land, on the edge of the beautiful village of Casciana Alta.

The large house of 300 sqm is currently arranged as two separate units, each with private entrance, but would work equally well as one large private house. At the moment is offers flexibility for home and income from rental.

The house is entered from a paved patio area into a large connected living room, with wood-burning fire, and well-equipped kitchen. There is a large study with wood-burning stove, currently also used as an occasional bedroom. Also downstairs are two large double bedrooms and a large bathroom with bath and shower and spacious hallway. There is a very large storeroom on the ground floor level with high ceiling. An open portico gives a lovely outdoor dining area with views over the countryside.

There is an external staircase which leads up to a large private terrace with wonderful views to the village above and across the olive grove. From here there is access to a large open-plan kitchen / living room, connected by a large arch, with beautiful oak floor and wood-burning stove, two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

There is a barn to restore.

Gas central heating throughout. All services connected. Easy car access and private parking.

The farmhouse has been lovingly restored using quality materials. There are beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and Tuscan arches. Nestled within the rolling hills of Tuscany. The building is located on the edge of Casciana Alta which is a lovely hilltop Tuscan village where it is easy to wander through the narrow, ancient streets, stop for a coffee at the cafe, go to the grocery store, to the post office or to the bank. All you could wish for is right on your doorstep in this typically Tuscan village.

The name Casciana Alta distinguishes the village from Casciana Terme, which is a spa town just a few kilometers away, famous for thermal waters. Casciana is rich in history as it hosts the the remains of fortresses, palaces from the eighteenth and nineteenth century, the Municipal Theatre and the Parish Church of St Nicholas. The town is set halfway between the medieval town of Volterra and Pisa. The coast is nearby, where the reefs of Castiglioncello and the golden sandy beaches of the Versilia coast can all be accessed within half an hour. The countryside around Casciana is dotted with beautiful stone farmhouses and rustic cottages overlooking golden meadows. Don't miss the festa in May when you can taste the fresh pasta or slow cooked wild boar with polenta, a regional specialty.

In Lajatico, close by, is the famous Teatro del Silenzio a natural open air theatre where Andrea Bocelli, the famous tenor, and some of the biggest names in opera come for a special performance. Volterra is famous for alabaster marble, Lucca for the quiet and peaceful elegance of the walled medieval town and San Gimignano for its cobbled lanes and tall stone towers which dominate the surrounding countryside. Pisa and the Piazza dei Miracoli with the cathedral, a classic example of Romanesque architecture, the leaning tower and baptistery is well worth a visit, as is a stroll along the Arno river banks admiring the classic bridges. Don’t miss out on a visit to one of the many wine producers in the area and we can recommend Cantine Antinori ((Bolgheri) for an outstanding experience.
