Palaia  Tuscany 5 Bed Villa Gardens, Swimming pool, Olives

5 Minutes from Palaia in Tuscany in a quiet, panoramic location is this restored spacious villa with a swimming pool, gardens, land and a small olive grove. The villa was restored in 2007 and is currently divided split into two independent units for a total of 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. One of the apartments is rented out to holidaymakers and tourists the other is lived in by the owners. The property stands in an area of approximately 4.8 hectares with a small olive grove, a 12 × 6 m swimming pool and a convenient canopy used for relaxation and outdoor dining.
Services are available in the town of Palaia (3km away; 5’ by car) and many well-known towns and cities in Tuscany such as San Miniato, Casciana Terme, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Florence and  Siena can be easily reached in less than an hour and a half.

The villa has a surface area of 236 sqm – 2,539 sqft with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on two floors and has been divided in the last renovation into two independent apartments (one on each floor).

Apartment A has a surface area of 127 sqm – 1,367 sqft with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom on the ground floor and is currently used by the owners as a private home. A loggia gives access to the entrance room with the bathroom. A door on the left-side wall leads into the spacious living room with a paved terrace and to the kitchen. On the right-side wall, two more doors lead to two bedrooms. The unit is completed by a closet/pantry, laundry at the rear, and a covered pergola with an oven on the short side of the building.

Apartment B has a surface area of 106 sqm – 1,140 sqft with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and is reached via an external staircase, is rented out to holidaymakers and tourists and comprises a spacious central living room that leads on the left to two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and on the right to a bedroom and a study sharing a bathroom in-between. The study could however be used as a fourth bedroom.

The internal staircase connecting the two units is currently unused but, should the buyer not be interested in vacation rentals, the floors could be easily joined back together to have a single larger home. At the rear of the house is a boiler room (3 sqm – 32 sqft).

A short distance from the villa is the paved canopy (51 sqm – 549 sqft) which is an ideal spot for relaxing and al fresco dining.

The villa was restored in 2007 using original material wherever possible and keeping the charm and character of the building pretty much untouched. The huge living room on the ground floor features stunning vaulted ceilings and a big fireplace.
Floors are tiled with terracotta, while the ceilings are supported by a system of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The whitewashed and plastered walls help to make the rooms bright and welcoming.

The villa is surrounded by 4.8 hectares of land, approximately half of which is covered in mixed and coppice woodland (2.1 ha). All around the villa is the garden (4,000 sqm) which also houses a 12 × 6 m swimming pool with a Roman staircase, built in 2003. The pool is surrounded by a paved sunbathing area enclosed by hedges.
The fields below the villa, to the North, are registered as arable land and include a small olive grove (4,000 sqm) that can produce a small quantity of oil for private use. Other olive trees are scattered throughout the property and frame the pool and garden area.

A gravelled area on two sides of the villa provides a convenient car parking area.
