Country house in an idyllic private setting between Florence and Pisa close to Leonardo da Vinci's birthplace
This charming and typical Tuscan country house for sale out of the 18th century is situated in a dreamlike and idyllic private setting between Florence and Pisa on the southwestern slope of the Montalbano ridge. The house offers unspoilt views onto the Arno valley and was remodelled and enriched with artistic highlights by the owner, an architect, in 2002. These modernisation works brought a clear and noble character to the property. Today, the country house offers about 200 m² on two floors and features a plastered finish, which could be a reference to a comparatively wealthy former owner, since traditional Tuscan country houses built of natural stones were typically left with a raw finish. A swimming pool (7.20 x 3.60 m) behind the house is surrounded by cypresses and hedges. The plot (2,730 m²) has a mature tree population, Mediterranean plants and bushes as well as an olive grove with about 30 olive trees, which yield about 50 litres of excellent olive oil each year. The access road is lined with cypress trees and olive groves, a typical and authentic image of Tuscany. The town Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, can be reached on about 8 km of scenic road. Florence is about 50 km away from this beautiful property for sale. The village with bars, restaurants, bank and other facilities is 1.8 km distant.
