The measurements provided indicate the liveable surface area.
The liveable surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.
The surface area occupied by stairs may only be calculated once.
State and finishing
The two farmhouses have been restored and are in good general condition, but would benefit from some modernization of the fixtures.
The exteriors feature exposed local stonework and the interiors have wood-beamed and tiled ceilings and Tuscan terracotta tiled floors.
The opportunity to make use of the large dimensions of the annexes to build a relaxation area, spa and/or guesthouse is a very interesting one.
The buildings are surrounded by 5 hectares of agricultural land which is convenient and easily accessible. If desired, it would be possible to put in a swimming pool.
Use and potential uses
The property is ideal for those looking for a tourist accommodation business in one of Italy’s most picturesque and popular areas for both national and international tourism. Thanks to the two farmhouses and the separate living units, it would also be possible to use part of it as a permanent home and the rest as a business.
