Country house with painter's studio in idyllic location near Massa Marittima
Country house of a German artist couple in idyllic secluded location with view on the surrounding villages and in clear weather even as far as Elba and Corsica. The building complex is situated in the middle of a 7 ha large plot in unobstructable nature. The rural property was acquired in 1972 and developed into a country house full of character. The main living area of the house has a large kitchen-cum-living-room, a beautiful living room, which is connected with the inner courtyard, and a studio with splendid tiled stove. There are also two additional rooms of different sizes on the ground floor. The bedroom with en-suite bathroom is on the first floor. Here is also a guest apartment with approx. 65 m², which can also be reached directly over an outside staircase. It consists of a kitchen-living room, a bathroom with shower, a small separate bedroom, a closet room and a large living/sleeping room. The house has no central heating and is heated only by the fireplace in the kitchen as well as 2 wood stoves. The outside facilities, artistically designed by the former landlord in loving handicraft, create a very special atmosphere. Sheltered secluded places to retreat, an artistically designed pond and various pergolas around the house offer charming opportunities to stay outdoors in any weather and mood. There is also a large covered loggia where you can stay, work, eat, drink, entertain guests or simply enjoy the view of the village almost all year round. The lush tree population around the house acts as a windbreaker in winter and a shade provider in summer. The property once had an olive grove and its own vineyard, both of which could be re-cultivated. There are numerous picturesque small villages in the surrounding area, and about 14 km away on a hill lies the charming, lively small town of Massa Marittima with a wide view over the Maremma to Elba. Here there are excellent shopping possibilities, many bars and restaurants, but also exhibitions and concerts in the magnificent cathedral. In about 35 minutes by car you reach the sea and the small seaside town Follonica. On the well-kept beach promenade you can stroll in the evening and stop off in various restaurants.
