Looking for an off-grid property that is totally independent? Look no further than this off-grid farmhouse set in the mountains of Casentino in Tuscany. This 150 sqm building has 3 bedrooms (potential for 2 more) and 2 bathrooms. 6.2 hectares (15.3 acres) of land.

Independent and self-sufficient home

This property is perfect for those who are looking for a totally independent and self-sufficient home in Italy. Located 1000 metres above sea level and accessible only by 4×4 vehicle. It is not connected to any water, electricity, or gas lines from outside sources, so you can enjoy living in true harmony with nature. The photovoltaic panels on the home produce a small amount of 12V current, but the system will need expanding if you want to live here for an extended period of time.

The nearest services are situated 3 kilometers from the property, although the road is only accessible by off-road vehicle. The closest airport is in Florence, some 73 kilometres away, and can be reached in just over an hour via the Consuma pass.

The three-story farmhouse (150 sqm – 1,614 sqft) is in decent condition and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
– The basement has two rooms that are currently being used as storage (but could potentially be turned into two independent bedrooms) and a bathroom, all with direct access from outside.
– The ground floor of the house features a large living room with a dining area and fireplace, a kitchen, a bedroom, and a bathroom. A staircase leads up to the first floor.
– On the first floor, there are two connected bedrooms.

Water supply is ensured by a natural spring inside the property, with two collection tanks (the biggest one is over 2,000 lt in capacity). Heating the house relies on fireplaces and stoves, fed with wood which is easily recovered from the surrounding woodland.
Surrounded by 6.2 hectares (15.3 acres) of land, covered for the most part (5.5 ha) by woodland and chestnut groves. The garden lies all around the building together with a clearing for a total of approximately 7,000 sqm (1.7 ac)

The road leading to the property (roughly 2.5 km) is in good shape for half of its length: from there a 4×4 off-road vehicle is needed to be to reach the house.
