This small farmhouse is located in a glorious position, with outstanding views, and lovely land of around one hectare (around 2.5 acres) where it is possible to add a swimming pool (subject to planning permission); the view stretches to Lajatico and the ‘Theatre of Silence’, and then on to the hilltop Tuscan town of Volterra and all the villages in between which are scattered over the hillside, which sparkle in the night sky.
The stone property has been renovated externally and internally with exposed stone, and inside there are modern, quality fittings and finishes. The house is about 60 sqm and is as follows: with accommodation all on one floor there is a modern country kitchen with dining area, a good double bedroom, closet, modern bathroom with showers and a private courtyard.
