Very characteristic west-facing stone farmhouse on three levels, dating back to 1680, totally nestled into the wooded hills of Pescia, with stunning views over the surrounding medieval villages.
The property is sobdivided into two independent units: the larger house on the 1st and top floor, the smaller apartment on the ground floor.
APARTMENT: The apartment is entered from a broad garden terrace at ground level perfect for alfresco dining. Facing west this terrace affords outstanding views of the hilltop villages, valleys and mountain ranges stretching to the Apennines . On entry, there is a spacious open plan living area for relaxing, cooking, dining, where restoration has exposed original stone walls, beams and ceiling tiles. The remaining rooms comprise a bathroom, one twin and one double bedroom, one of which is particularly charming with full-length doors opening directly on to the terrace. And, unusually for an old Tuscan country house, the apartment it is all on one level with easy access for people with mobility problems

To left and right of the entry are a well equipped, rustic style kitchen; exceptionally spacious living/dining area with a magnificent gallery, vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace; and a third twin bedroom.
Throughout, the house has chestnut wood beams and cross beams, ceiling tiles and floor paving in traditional ‘cotto' style. The house and apartment are furnished with comfort in mind, a mix of modern and antinque, affording lovely bright spaces and stunning views from every room.
The house and apartment are centrally heated and have timber burning real flame fires in addition for cosy evenings in the early spring and winter months.
Leading from a very extensive paved terrace with potted garden the main house overlooks a private garden and extensive paved terrace.
An 8x4 mt above ground swimming pool is set in olive groves with views across the valley.
