Cottages and Farmhouses Residential Casole d'Elsa
Set on a natural terrace, dominating a dream landscape, you will find this beautiful stone farmhouse for sale with 4 hectares of land and a small vineyard in Casole d'Elsa.
The property is located between Pievescola and Casole d'Elsa and overlooks a rocky cliff that opens its gaze to the Metalliferous Hills, offering a truly breathtaking view. The absolute silence that accompanies the walks in the village, although inhabited and perfectly preserved, make the visitor descend into a timeless atmosphere, in which the frenzy of the city seems to be much more distant.
In 2011 the stone farmhouse was the subject of a meticulous and passionate restoration carried out by the current owner who, thanks to the intuitions of a brilliant architect, is an excellent example of how to combine the character of a traditional Tuscan farmhouse with modern elements in harmonious contrast between them, offering essentiality, excellent use of space and enhancement of materials. The exposed stone walls alternate with those plastered with natural lime, the steel beams to the traditional chestnut beams and the handmade terracotta floors of the sleeping area contrast with the smooth surfaces of the living area. To help this beautiful combination of ancient and modern plays a key role in the panorama that excites for its beauty from every view of the house, in every season of the year and in every moment of the day, with the solar rays that penetrate inside thanks to the large glazed surfaces and to the perfect southern exposure.
The house measures 240 square meters and is spread over two levels:
on the ground floor, a beautiful arched opening leads to the large and bright living room with fireplace; climbing three steps you enter the kitchen with a central island, from here you go into the dining room created in the veranda with windows and attached pergola, then we find a room now used as a gym but can be used as a single room and finally a bathroom with shower ;
through the original steel central staircase proceeds to the upper floor; the large hallway is used as a study, then we find a bathroom with shower and two generously sized double rooms. the height of the ceilings made it possible to create comfortable mezzanines in both; the main room has a walk-in closet located under the mezzanine and annexed there is a splendid private bathroom with shower and a large central basin integrated into the floor from which you can admire the landscape of the surrounding hills;
in the basement there is the cellar accessible via the internal staircase.
In the technical room, having access from the outside, the systems are housed with the boiler fed by biomass. This type of power supply, combined with solar and photovoltaic panels, insulated and ventilated roof, high efficiency window frames and radiant panel heating system allows the property to reach the remarkable energy class "A".
It is possible to build a swimming pool and an annex of 60 sqm detached from the building as well as 120 square meters of partially buried volume where you can create rooms to service the house and possibly a wellness area.
These new volumes to be created would benefit from large glazed surfaces to better enhance the same incredible panoramic position of the farmhouse.
