Luxury Villa in Tuscany. Sea views to the Island of Elba
This luxury Tuscan villa property is located at the top of a hill offering a panoramic view over the sea with the Gulf of Follonica and Elba Island on one side and the Sienese hills on the other.
The villa has a surface area of 400 sqm – 4,304 sqft with 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms and is spread out over three floors comprising:
– Ground floor: living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom, private studio with bathroom and a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and access from the garden. Outside, a large paved and air-conditioned portico (95 sqm – 1,022 sqft) is enclosed by glass-windows and allowing full enjoyment of the pleasant climate of Tuscany. A technical room with direct access from the outside completes the floor.
– First floor: three double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, plus a linen storage/laundry room. Two of the bedrooms have a nice terrace (20 sqm each).
– Second floor: two double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.
The living room on the ground floor was built in the former stables and the typical old features and style have been preserved. The flooring throughout the house is made of chestnut boards.
The conservative restoration was carried out with the idea of preserving the original building, highlighting its historically-more-relevant features (stone walls, chestnut wooden beams, terracotta tiles and vaulted ceilings). These traditional materials are coupled with many modern details made out of crystal, steel and iron which connect both present and past.
Behind the farmhouse, there are two warehouses (100 sqm – 1,076 sqft).
With the approval of the new Piano Operativo by the municipality of Scarlino, one could also expand the volume of the main building.
The land surrounding the villa, roughly 1.0 ha – 2.5 acres, is rich in plants typical of the area such as strawberries, cypresses, holm oaks and productive olive trees. The Eucalypts one can see were planted as they help to drain the land (formerly marsh now reclaimed) by entrapping water.
The pool was built on the slope of the hill facing the sea. The basin is made out of quartz sand and resin which, by extending on the slope simulate a small sandy beach. Right next to the pool there is a relaxation area with sunbeds and deck chairs.
The villa, thanks to its enviable position with view over the sea on one side and on the Sienese hills on the other, is currently working as an upmarket holiday accommodation business but it would be possible to convert the property back into a luxury private home.
Bordering the property are a further 13.0 hectares of land, with a productive olive grove (600 trees are already producing a certified organic olive oil, while almost as many trees need to be recovered, with ongoing PMA). On this plot of land are also located eight bungalows which can be easily rented out.
The asking price for the whole property (villa + extra 13 hectares of land + bungalows) is € 5.000.000
