Via della Croce
Terricciola, Italy

Description

Romantic old country house on the top of a hill close to Pontedera, overlooking the valley and with striking views on the roofs of the hamlet. Thirty minutes from Pisa airport heading south to Volterra, from which it lies twenty-five kilometers away, the village of Terricciola has Etruscan roots: to that era dates back a beautiful hypogea, still entirely preserved and visible. Amidst disputes between Florence and Pisa for centuries, Terricciola ended up like many other villages under Medici's domain. The whole hamlet is now very well kept, with flowers on balconies and a fairytale atmosphere that embraces the entire little village. This ancient palace, that in the eighteenth century was home to important public figures of the Tuscan Grand Duchy, preserves the charm of the country residence with its terraces, its library, its living rooms. The total area is about 1,000 square meters and it currently has 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Large fireplaces, original floor tiles, chestnut beams and stone staircases. There are also a large staff area with laundry and ironing, living rooms and boudoir, reading corners, many of which overlook the beautiful garden hosting a natural water spring, a library, a private chapel and one hectare of land. Beneath the entire surface of the building lies a huge basement cellar. There are five entrances and it is obviously easy to create a number of apartments. A palace that, given the surface and configuration, can prove to fulfill multiple uses: a house deserving a renovation that can bring it back to its ancient beauties.
