Wonderful opportunity to create a truly magnificent stone Tuscan house in one of the premier villages of Central Tuscany.
The property sits in a unique location, at the top of the village. The building is currently used for storage but has the potential to convert to a two bedroom house with pretty patio area to eat ‘al fresco’, with magnificent views over the Tuscan hills.
The property needs to be completely restored and also needs to get all the planning permissions. There are two possible projects which have been outlined by a local English-speaking Geometra and plans have been drawn up. There are good contacts for a full project team of builders who have carried out a number of restoration projects in the area, with wonderful results. There is a great opportunity to customise a restoration project in your own style.
The property can also be bought in its existing, un-renovated state for €50,000. We have outline plans for two different projects. A total finished cost would be in the region of €250,000, depending on choices of materials.
Subject to planning, there is potential to convert this un-renovated storage building into a beautiful house on two levels with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, open living room/ kitchen and a magnificent garden or terrace with views over the hills.
We propose the property with two different projects, both indicative and to be submitted to the authorities to get planning permissions.
The property is located in a picturesque village with cafe, restaurant and shop.
The village is located at 7 km drive from the lovely town of Lajatico, birth place of the tenor Andrea Boccelli.
The natural contours of the land have been used to create the Teatro del Silenzio where the singer holds a concert in July every year together with other internationally famous singers. This open air theatre, Il Teatro del Silenzio, was built especially to host this annual event and hence its name. The quintessential Tuscan countryside around Lajatico offers superb views and beautifully restored properties.
The town is located in Valdera in Central Tuscany between Pisa and Florence. The colourful landscape of rolling hills dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees epitomises 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.
Casciana Terme has thermal waters and spa facilities and is a pretty town with piazzas and cafès serving the local wine. The città d’arte (cities of art) include Volterra, San Gimignano, Palaia and Florence
Distances: Lajatico 7 km, Pisa 55 km, Florence 80 km, Volterra 15 km, San Gimignano 30 km, Coast 45 km, Pontedera train station 35 km.
