The Pisa airport is just 38 km away from the villa.<br/><br/> <b>DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS</b><br/> The manorial villa</b> (815 sqm – 8,769 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms) is laid over four beautiful floors, all connected by a convenient elevator or by internal staircases. The two lower floors have both direct access from outside, on opposite sides of the villa.<br/> - <i><b>Ground floor</b></i>: living/dining hall with two sitting rooms at each side, ample habitable kitchen with pantry, two bathrooms;<br/> - <i><b>First floor</b></i>: entrance room, reception hall with balcony, two studios (potentially convertible into two more bedrooms), wardrobe, bathroom and bedroom with en-suite bathroom;<br/> - <i><b>Second floor</b></i>: two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, two bedrooms with a shared bathroom in between, living room with wardrobe;<br/> - <i><b>Third floor</b></i>: ample rustic living room, bedroom, bathroom and lofts.<br/><br/> A <b>rustic country house</b> (235 sqm – 2,528 sqft, 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms) is located next to the villa and laid over two floors, both accessed directly from the garden:<br/> - <i><b>Lower floor</b></i>: living/dining room, kitchen with ample portico, TV room, bathroom, suite N°1 (made up of bedroom with bathroom and sitting area) and ample wine cellar in the back;<br/> - <i><b>Upper floor</b></i>: suite N°2 and N°3 (each made up of two bedrooms and a shared bathroom). These rooms are excellent for guests. At the southeastern side of the building is the control room for the surveillance systems.<br/><br/> A <b>garage</b> (35 sqm – 377 sqft) has been built in the property to shelter cars, however the building is covered in stone and recalls an old countryside building so that it doesn’t detract from the prestige of the property.<br/><br/> <b>STATE AND FINISHES</b><br/> The villa dates back to the late-18th century and is usually regarded as one of the oldest villas in the area. The building has been masterfully restored just a few years ago: all the original finishes have been preserved and restored wherever needed and possible, so that we can still admire the beautiful marble and terracotta floors, wrought iron railings along the staircases, beautiful frescoes covering the walls, finely decorated and carved coffered ceilings, faux architectures such as columns and half-columns.<br/> Ample windows make the rooms very bright and welcoming, in conjunction with a palette of colors composed of white and beige nuances.<br/><br/> The conservative restoration, however, didn’t prevent the owners from installing modern services that allow enjoying the property at its full potential in the 21st century. The buildings are equipped with alarm system and video surveillance, heating has been installed under the floor so that there was no need to disrupt frescoes and decorations on the walls and an elevator connects all the floors of the building that are thus easily accessed.<br/><br/> <b>EXTERIORS</b><br/> The villa is immersed in its own 5,000-sqm private garden, fully enclosed by a handmade stone wall. The main gate opens into a short graveled alley leading right in front of the villa, where is a graveled roundabout surrounding a garden with fountain. Beyond the villa is the lush garden, dotted with centuries-old trees and palms and marked by graveled walkways and hedges hiding a metal gazebo that offers shadow in the sunny days of summer.<br/> Right next to the villa, surrounded by a stone-paved sunbathing area, is the impressive 17 x 5 m swimming pool overlooking the Versilia coastline and the sea. The paved area is very generous in size and can easily accommodate an ample gazebo for pleasant poolside breakfasts and dinners.<br/><br/> On the southwestern side of the garden, behind the villa, is a wonderful belvedere offering a breathtaking view over the coast between Livorno and Liguria, the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago (including Elba) and even Corsica in the distance.
