An enchanting cypress way leads to this old farm house (1866) standing on top of a gentle green hill surrounded by fields of wheat and sunflowers, belonging to the large family estate. A classic portrait of Tuscany. The villa enjoys a special location, large outdoor spaces, olive groves, a swimming pool, comfortable interiors (up to 12 people in the main house and 4 in a lovely dependence), the proximity to Pisa, Florence and the coast. It is a great location for big family reunions, offering the chance of cultural day trips for the adults and entertaining for the kids. The villa has a wide green area with lemon trees in terracotta vase, beautiful geraniums flowers, pizza oven and BBQ. The large swimming pool (10m x 5m) has a patio and long chairs. During spring time the main house is covered by white roses, begonia and jasmine. In front of it there is a marble table for 15 people, perfect for al fresco dining. From Livorno it is possible to drive down the cost for 10-15 Km and spend the day in Quercianella or Castiglioncello, two lovely resorts with beautiful sea, shops and delicious fish restaurants. Tennis court, horse riding and skate park are at 2 Km. The villa has been carefully restored and tastefully furnished by the owner, a young Italian architect which mixes the country style with a taste for minimal design, resulting in a unique and very particular compromise, as shown in the bathrooms. The property consists of a main house and a dependance.
