This delightful cottage stands out from the hills of Volterra and has been constructed like new on an old ruin by the current owners making it a jewel of the Tuscan tradition. The property is found on top of a hill 2km from the highway, which can be accessed by a wide, white, and well-maintained road. The construction, completed in 2010, was very detailed, extensive, and conducted step by step to build a property with characteristics too rare to find on the market as an energetic qualification and a top-level antique classification; the use of high-quality building materials like the draft (bozze) of Volterra, a typical stone of the area for the exterior facade, the handmade Impruneta terracotta tiles for the interior and exterior flooring, the top-quality resin for the rooms in the attic. In addition, the original bathrooms present finishes and decor in hand made cement tiles from Mosaic del Sur Spain. The big double combustion chamber fireplaces front is made of sandstone and pine wood from the 1600s and is found in the living room. Every galvanized wrought iron element of the farmhouse is handmade by selective artisans. The property extends over three floors, one of which is a basement, and one is an attic. It is surrounded by a beautiful garden with olive trees, oleandrin, cypresses, and is possible space to build a swimming pool. It is also surrounded by a holm-oak grove that adds a particular charm and high level of privacy within the setting. The distribution of the internal spaces is meant for a family and friends life with all the indoor and outdoor comforts. The house has two entrances, one from the road and one from the garden, that the large living room which is next to the kitchen and three bedrooms with two bathrooms; from here there is a wide balcony that can be accessed by a spiral staircase made of wrought iron and leads up to the attic, where there are two big rooms for many uses; or down to the basement, which besides being a guest area with three bedrooms, each with private entrance to the garden, is also a big game room designed for kids and adults with a set up that has a pool table from the Artusi period in the center perfectly renovated. Moreover, there is also an exterior utility room, a laundry room adjacent to the kitchen, an underground room currently used for storage about 70m2 with 3 hopper windows that can be further divided into rooms for housing (bedrooms, bathrooms, potential new kitchen).
