Property Description
This historic fortified villa with solid stone walls will impress you the first moment you see it . The generous dimensions, the immensely thick walls made up of large blocks of natural stone and the enchantingly beautiful, but in the past mainly strategic location, made this one of the most important villas in the area for centuries. For many decades the house was owned by a large local family. The maintenance is good, the structure solid and there are numerous historical elements to be found. It will also be possible to restore some details lost due to renovation because the structure is completely original. The imposing Villa, situated on the top of a hill about 4 km from the Etruscan city of Volterra, offers on the ground floor a large salon with original fireplace and vaulted ceilings in brick, a kitchen, a second salon, a bathroom, a small chapel, and a room with installations. On the first floor, accessible via both an internal staircase and the original external staircase, a spacious entrance hall with original fireplace, a spacious kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The attic floor with terrace, accessible via an external staircase, offers a further 6 rooms that have sufficient height to be converted into a cadastral living area; so here you can realize another 6 bedrooms, possibly with a bathroom, without excessive costs. The villa as described has a living space of approximately 430 m2. In addition, there is an outbuilding of significant size (approximately 280 m2) in which an apartment has already been realized and which further comprises a warehouse. The whole stands on a plot of 2 Ha with the possibility of expansion. A swimming pool can be laid out. The house is equipped with running water and electricity. The location, accessible by approximately 2 km of easily accessible 'strada bianca' 'offers plenty of peace and privacy, but the presence of other homes in the vicinity ensure safety and an' uninsulated feeling '.
