Climbing on the hills of western Tuscany in a true corner of paradise, only 35 minutes drive from the sea of Follonica we offer for sale CASALE GEPPETTO: the result of a careful renovation that took place in the 90th century through the skillful hands of the current owner, a pleasant Italian man who became a successful entrepreneur in Germany in the construction industry.
The house is in perfect condition despite the renovation dates back to about 30 years ago and has always been maintained with care and passion by the current owners.
Casale Geppetto has all the characteristics to be the ideal home for those looking for a place of charm, secluded but not isolated and surrounded by the unspoilt nature of this wild and little-known part of Tuscany.
The farmhouse, with overall surface area of 280 sqm plus a 100 sqm outbuilding, is in the middle of a large clearing dotted with oaks, cypresses and the typical Mediterranean scrub. The total land available to it is approximately 24,800 sqm outhwest facing and bathed in sun all day.
The current owners during the renovation have realized a main house of about 150 sqm and a secondary house for guests with independent entrance of approximately 70 sqm plus a storage room on the ground floor where you can find a further bedroom with bathroom.
The main house consists of a large room with fireplace, a large kitchen overlooking the typical porch where you can enjoy lunch and dinner in a unique and priceless setting. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a secondary access through an external staircase leading to the back garden.
The secondary house that has independent access through an original external stone staircase consists of living room with kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.
The property is also completed by a large old stone warehouse of about 100 sqm to be restored with the possibility of converting it into a nice and large additional house.
There is no swimming pool but it can be easily built since the Municipality of Castelnuovo allows its realization.
To be noted also the large amount of water present thanks to a well built by the current owners that allows total water autonomy with underground tank of about 20,000 litres.
The nearest village (Castelnuovo Val di Cecina) is just 5 minutes drive away with all the amenities such as bank, post office, bus lines and typical restaurants. The international airport of Pisa is about 1 hour and a half drive.
Castelnuovo Val di Cecina is a small, hilltop town unique for its grape-bunch shape. Dotted with small towns, the area’s countryside ranges from mountainous terrain to Mediterranean scrub, not to mention the golden hills overrun by vineyards and olive groves.
Castelnuovo is the place to be for nature enthusiasts: from the historic medieval town, you can follow a variety of different nature trails that take you through enchanting historic sites, such as the bridge crossing the Pavone stream or scenic panoramic points offering views of the Val di Cornia and the Gulf of Piombino. In the hamlet of Sasso Pisano, you’ll be able to see the characteristic putizze, natural geothermal occurrences that identify the entire area.
Castelnuovo Val di Cecina’s surrounding area is also known as the Devil’s Valley for its widespread geysers. The area was already famous in Dante Alighieri’s time, and probably inspired his description of Inferno in the Divine Comedy.
