What are the current costs of new build in Tuscany?
Hi, we have just bought a small estate in Tuscany, just outside Pienza. Our Geometra has been in contact with the Commune and established that we can knock the existing house down and re-build another one of approx 300m2. It has to be built to all the legal rules and look like a rural house. We asked the Geometra on costs for this option and were told that costs in the region of 2000 Euros per m2 are likly costs. Having read on this and other forums, a more realistic cost of 1000 - 1500 per m2. Does anyone have any up to date ideas on the costs. The process of obtaining permission for this option, going out to tender only to have costs that are too high is not an option for us. Any guidance that you have would be really appreciated.Also it would be good to know if these costs include things like commune fees, geometra fees and do they include a cost like the kitchen and some sort of cost towards landscaping immediatly around the house.Many thanks
