Full Description

Unique opportunity to finish a new house in the Tuscan countryside. The house is to be sold in an unfinished state, as shown in the photos, with external walls in place, and with the roof, but with the internal walls, plumbing and electrics still to do and the cost of this work will be borne by the buyer and this will be in addition to the purchase price. The swimming pool has also been partially constructed and is included in the sale.

The project is for a stone farmhouse with a beautiful 'loggia' terrace, perfect for indoor/ outdoor living and making the most of the south-westerly aspect and the wonderful views, and it is planned that this part will comprise a large open space to hold kitchen, dining area and living area and a bathroom. The adjacent building, formerly the barn, is on two levels and can hold four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a terrace. The current owner will complete the basic construction of both buildings and the joining building which will have side walls largely of glass. The swimming pool (10m x 5m) has already been constructed in concrete with a large outdoor lounge area and is to be finished.

There is plenty of scope for customisation and the project is in the hands of an expert local architect who can work with you to achieve your perfect home. The house can be built with the latest generation systems and finishes, but with the charm and style of a traditional Tuscan stone house. The location is wonderful with absolute privacy, yet it is not isolated and the centre of the lovely town of Chianni is only a 5 minutes away and is a pleasant walk. The land with the property is around one hectare (four acres) and it is a gently sloping area mostly covered in olive trees. The views are breathtaking and the feeling is of peace and calm, immersed in nature.

The property is located just outside Chianni, a picturesque little town where the houses are huddled together and the narrow stone streets are flanked with shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, and are all within walking distance. Surrounded by chestnut woods and olive groves, Chianni has splendid views over the valley below. There is a sense of timelessness and calm, yet it is only 40 minutes from Pisa airport. Ideally located, as Castiglioncello and Cecina on the coast, the golf courses of Pisa and Castelfalfi, and the remains of Etruscan and historic towns, such as Volterra and San Gimignano, are all within a 30 minutes drive.

Chianni sits within the area of Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees epitomise the Tuscan landscape. The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages, castles and country churches and a landscape with golden meadows of wheat dancing in the breeze, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilisation. Here Andrea Boccelli , renowned tenor, was born and it is in the heart of Valdera, in Lajatico, that he created the famous Teatro del Silenzio (the Theatre of Silence) where a natural amphitheatre creates a breathtaking outdoor setting. In the summer months he performs a concert which attracts a global audience, alongside internationally renowned musicians.

Nearby is also Casciana Terme, which has revived thermal waters and spa facilities with indoor and outdoor pools, massages and treatments and is a pretty town with a busy central piazza and cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence with all the art and architectural treasures to discover and are all are within easy reach.

Distances: Chianni 1 km, Palaia 25 km, Volterra 30 km, San Gimignano 45 km, Pisa (airport) 45 km, Lucca 75 km, Siena 85 km, Florence 90 km.
