This house has been completely gutted, restored and extended. Extremely private but conveniently located.
The house is connected to all mains services; water, electricity, gas, sewers, and there is a television satellite. In addition, there is an underground water storage tank of 10,000 litres that is fed by the roof downpipes; this water can be used to irrigate the garden. The entire house has under-floor radiant heat, and the ground and first floors are air-conditioned. Also included is a water softening system. The ground floor includes a living room with an open fireplace, oak beam and terracotta vaulted ceilings, and large double insulated windows (including French doors) that overlook the covered terrace and garden. Off the living room is a bathroom featuring glass mosaic tiles and a large walk-in shower. A one car garage attached to one end of the living room has a laundry room with a sink, washing machine and dryer. Off the other end of the living room is the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooktop and electric oven in a center island. A full walk-in pantry is off the kitchen, and there are doors in the dining room that lead to the outside dining area under a rose-covered pergola. Adjacent to the outside dining area is a fully functioning pizza oven. The original stone stairs lead to the first floor where one finds the master bedroom suite. There is a lovely fireplace in the bedroom as well as a designer bathtub. While the modern sink and ceramic counter are visible in the room as well, the bidet and toilet are housed within a freestanding cube in the room. Also included in the suite is a walk-in closet and a small private terrace overlooking the garden. On the second floor, there is a large office and/or bedroom, a third bathroom with an enclosed Jacuzzi shower, and another bedroom. The garden area features a 3.6 by 12 metre swimming pool, and plantings include cypresses, olive trees, roses, lavender, cascading rosemary, and other flowering plants. There is a restored pig or animal sty that is currently used to store pool accessories and garden furniture during the winter months. It only takes a few minutes to walk to all shops and facilities, and the house is within 10 minutes of the train station it's possible to reach Florence on an early train with a total travel time of less than 1 ¼ hour. Because the house is situated in a town, security is never an issue. The house is offered fully furnished, not including some of the personal art work.
