Situated in the rolling hills of Tuscany this tastefully restored farmhouse is a must see. For sale, is half of a large “podere” farmhouse. With over 250 years history, a landmark in the area of Palaia. The house has beautiful surroundings, with a free view on the typical Tuscan hillsides. The podere is situated near Palaia, close to the provincial road. Which puts for instance Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra and San Gimignano just a stone’s-throw away. The house was bought and lovingly restored by the present owners, an airline pilot and his wife. They use the top apartment for seasonal rental and they make good business out of this. The house itself is around 230 m² divided in two apartments. The bottom floor apartment consists of a loggia (32 m²), kitchen, laundry room, bathroom, huge living room and bedroom. The living room has a fireplace and arched masonry ceiling. Behind the bottom floor apartment is the wine room (18 m²). The wine room is accessible from the rear of the building via an external door. It is however possible to link the bedroom to the wine room if expansion of living space is needed. The second floor apartment is reached by a characteristic outside stairs. It consists of a large living room with fireplace and wood-beam/stone ceiling. Furthermore there are 3 large bedrooms, with original terracotta flooring and typical terracotta wood stoves, a large typical Tuscan kitchen with original details, such as hard-stone sink and stove. One of the bedrooms provides access to a large terrace. The bathroom has recently been restored. The second floor apartment has also had a complete electrical and water-system overhaul and lines have been put in place for solar panels and solar boiler. In the area of the house there is a large garage (31 m²) with an outside roof extension, pizza oven, bbq and terrace. From the terrace you overlook the park-like garden and hillsides. Behind the farm there is a large typical brick hayshed (96 m²). This building is presently used for storing farm equipment but very well suited for conversion into a third apartment. A large part of the 3 hectares of land surrounds the farm and consists of a vineyard, olive grove and park-like area around the house.
