Tuscan Property For Sale By Owner
Podere Oliveto: Villa, Apartments + Pool Ponteginori, Italy
Airport 60-100 kms
Podere Oliveto is a large, 17th century farmhouse set in nearly 12 acres of land, in a secluded location with magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The property is 5 km from Ponteginori, a lively village with several shops, restaurants, cafes and other services. It is a 25 minute drive
from the beautiful hill town of Volterra and the vibrant seaside town of Cecina and one hour from Pisa, and its international airport.
Originally a large seventeenth century farmhouse, the villa has been fully restored to a high standard, retaining its graceful Tuscan arches and wooden beams, yet benefiting from modern ecological features such as solar roof panels which contribute to the gas-fired central heating and provide all hot water during the warmer months.
At present the villa comprises a main house and five self-contained apartments.
Main house: Entrance hall with guest cloakroom. Dining room leads onto huge, covered entertainment terrace. Summer living room with
unusual sunken well feature. French windows open onto panoramic, sunny terrace with steps to formal lawn.
Large, sunny, well-equipped kitchen opens onto entertainment terrace and a spacious wooden deck with spectacular views.
Stairs down to large basement with storage areas, wine cellar, laundry and boiler rooms.
Stairs from kitchen lead to upper floor. Winter living room. Master bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room.
Two more large, double bedrooms with en suite bathroom and panoramic covered terrace. Stairs down to gravel garden.
Five self-contained apartments as follows:
Two double storey apartments, each with large living/dining room, well equipped kitchen and shower bathroom. Stairs lead to two spacious double bedrooms, each with stunning views. Private paved terraces to front and back of each apartment.
Two studio apartments: large all-purpose living room with
kitchen area. Shower bathroom. Open-tread stairs lead to galleried double bedroom. Private paved terrace with lovely views.
One apartment with large all-purpose living room and kitchen area. Double bedroom with extra large en suite shower bathroom. Private paved terrace.

The villa could easily be turned into an elegant boutique hotel or holiday rental business. Only minor work is needed to remove kitchens from the apartments and/or to incorporate the apartments into the main house and/or combine them to create different sized separate accommodation. Each apartment leads into the next one by means of inter-connecting doors (which can be completely concealed and locked, if desired).
