Charming independent stone house with private panoramic pool and fenced garden. A steep winding road leads to the villa, which sits on top of a green hill surrounded by olive groves and Mediterranean vegetation. The villa is a typical «casa colonica» located at only 3 Km from the famous picturesque town of Pietrasanta and at 7 km from the elegant beach resort of Forte dei Marmi. The strategic position makes the villa the best location for those who want to enjoy both beach style life, cultural events, day trips to the nearby art cities, in a peaceful country retreat. Bus stop at 800 meters with connection to Pietrasanta. The property has a nice green area, with many roses, lemon trees, prickly pear, orange trees and a swimming pool (3m x 5m) shaded by olive groves. During spring and summer time the house is covered by red roses and ivy. In front of the villa there is a nice pergola and a table for 8 people, perfect for al fresco dining. The villa has been carefully restored and furnished by the owner in a typical country style with a taste for minimal design resulting in a unique and very particular compromise.
On the ground floor : large living room with a traditional fireplace, sat TV and CD player. Next to this room there is a bathroom with shower. On this floor there are also a large well equipped kitchen with fireplace and a table for 6 people (professional gas-cooker, oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, microwave, American coffee maker, toaster, kettle). Entrance and stairs to the first floor. Please note that the stairs are steep and for this reason we think that this property is not suitable for people with walking difficulties and groups with very small children.
