Situated amongst Volterra's famous and characteristic clay hills, sits this charming independent barn conversion. The property, which dates back to the 1700's, has been carefully and tastefully restored in 2015. The English owners who undertook the restoration were careful to maintain the authenticity of this Tuscan farmhouse, by renovating rather than replacing materials wherever possible. Materials such as oak, cypress wood, cotto and local stone were carefully removed and sent away to various carpenters and stonemasons to be treated and replaced. The result is a property that remains true to its origins and has the feeling of authenticity.
The property offers approx. 170 m2, and comprises two double bedrooms, three bathrooms, open plan lounge/dining area, kitchen, and laundry room. The traditional Tuscan style blends harmoniously with modern comforts such as air-con, modern bathrooms and a fitted kitchen.
Local planning regulations allow for this property to be increased in size.
Land & Gardens
The house sits in its own small estate of approx. 5 ha, which consists of gardens, panoramic patio loggia, olive groves and forest. The infinity pool sits in front of the house in an area, which provides spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and distant hilltop towns. A stream provides a natural border for part of the estate.
The medieval and picturesque town of Volterra is only approx. 5 mins drive, providing easy access to supermarkets, banks, shops and restaurants.
