The villa for sale is an authentic example of Neo-Classical Italian architecture situated a short distance from Pisa in a charming small village.
This imposing property stands out for its splendour and charm of yesteryear evident in the stately facade facing the street, while at the back one finds a large garden with a bamboo grove, beyond which there is an adjoining farmhouse with a large piece of arable farmland (not included in the sale unless requested). The property includes the main house, horse stables, a large garden at the rear of main house, and a large meadow on the left of the property accessible via a driveway off the public highway. The villa offers many possibilities and is suitable both as a private family residence or as a location for events, weddings and meetings.
The villa dates back to the late 1700s, early 1800s, and offers approx’ 1000 m2 of floorspace spread over 3 floors. One enters the villa via a large entrance hall leading to onto a hallway from which all the rooms on the ground floor are accessed. The ground floor is composed of two bedrooms, a sala/lounge, office or study, dining room and kitchen. An impressive staircase leads to the first floor where we find the beautiful ’sala principale’ measuring approx’ 100 m2 and characterised by high ceilings and frescoed vaulted plaster, features that are also found in the adjacent ‘sala minore’ which gives access onto the terrace, from which one can enjoy views over the garden.
This floor offers a symmetrical lay-out with the two sala’s in the centre, surrounded by four bedrooms each with en-suite or space for an en-suite.
The top floor is an open-plan attic, currently used for storage.
The property boasts an abundance of original and unique characteristics such as beautiful original terracotta floors, wooden beamed or frescoed ceilings, stone and marble furnishings, and plastered ceilings with hand crafted designs.
Situated to the rear of the villa, the 5000 m2 rectangular garden is surrounded by boundary walls. Although the villa faces the street, the garden and land to the rear of the property transform the atmosphere to one of nature and peace and quiet, making it hard to believe that the city of Pisa is only 10mins away.
The location of the villa is particularly interesting in that it is only a few minutes drive from the center of Pisa. Pisa airport is about 10 km and the city of Lucca can be reached in around 25mins. There are two famous thermal spa’s with 15mins of the property (Terme di San Giuliano and the Terme di Uliveto). The property is located in a small village which offers various shops and services. The favourable location, the structural characteristics of the property make the property particularly suitable both for those who want to start a business (tourist accommodation, weddings, events, meetings), as well as those who seek a prestigious family residence
In addition, there is a possibility to buy an additional farmhouse (to restore) and a further 1000 m2 of land, situated next to the villa.
