Located on the gentle hills in the charming area between Pisa and Florence, we offer for sale this typical and original farmhouse with an overall surface area of OVER 500 sqm.
The farmhouse maintains the original features of the time of construction and has always been regularly maintained.
Purchased from a German family about 30 years ago, the property is characterized by a lovely and unique loggia on the first floor and by an extremely panoramic and sunny position being exposed to the south-west.
The property is reached by a short dirt road that departs from the nearby town of Palaia and climbs up the hill; through a private and reserved access we enter the courtyard in front of the farmhouse which overlooks the surrounding landscape.
CASA LA MERIDIANA spreads over 2 floors and has a the typical rectangular shape. The current owners have tried to not spoil the originality of the property: in fact, on the ground floor we always find the old stables and warehouses which could be converted as tourist accommodation or become a large and articulated living area after a renovation.
From the internal central staircase we access the large apartment which originally housed 2 peasant families. The upper floor has an area of 250 sqm and is divided not only by a large kitchen with original fireplace, but also by various rooms and living rooms, 5 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.
In a hypothesis of renovation the property lends itself to being divided into several apartments or to become a home of extreme value and confidentiality; the current regulations in Italy that allow renovations to be carried out at very low costs make this farmhouse a true historic opportunity for purchase and renovation.
It should be noted that adjacent to the farmhouse there is an old barn with possibility to be renovated and conversion into a home as well.
Furthermore the property has about 1 hectare of contiguous land where it’s possible to create a large parking area and a swimming pool with a charming view of the Tuscan countryside.
The medieval character of Palaia is home to a fortress from which you can enjoy a breathtaking 360° view. Palaia also boasts Ghibelline walls and the two Romanesque churches of Santa Maria and Sant'Andrea.
The hilly surroundings are an ideal setting for trekking, biking or horseriding. A marked network of paths crosses through little known historic hamlet such as Alica, San Gervasio and Colleoli.
Palaia is crossed not only by the Wine Route of the Pisan Hills but it’s also an important white truffle area, celebrated every year in October with a market fair taking place in the cozy village of Forcoli once a medieval castle. In Forcoli it’s possible to find primary services such as post office, bank, grocery stores, shops, schools and public transport to reach Pontedera or Pisa.
