Old Stone Home Fully Renovated
If your dream has always been to live in a house full of history and charm, this old stone home will surprise you.
It is an ancient residence located on the highest part of the medieval village of Boccheggiano, set within the walls of the old castle.
This house, right next to the ancient palace of the owners of Boccheggiano, is estimated to be among the first buildings built in the village with over 1000 years of history behind it.
The structure is all in stone, with some plastered walls and others exposed. The stone walls laid 1000 years ago, strong and robust, have an incredible thickness but were still checked, plastered and reinforced in the complete renovation that took place in 2015.
THIS PROPERTY IS SOLD!
Roof has been completely replaced, as have all systems, floors and fixtures. The historic chestnut beams have been cleaned and reinforced where necessary with steel beams.
Every detail in the renovation has been treated with the utmost attention, from the exposed stones grouted one by one to the antique-style floors, from the wrought iron handrails to the ceilings with exposed beams and terracotta.
Ancient style but without giving up modern comforts such as independent heating with radiators or double glazed windows.
This old stone home develops from ground to roof and is attached on two sides to other houses.
- On the mezzanine floor we find the living room with sofa and TV connected by two openings with the eat-in kitchen where there is also a typical and characteristic wood-burning fireplace.
- Going up to the first floor there is the sleeping area with the master bedroom, a second bedroom which can accommodate two beds, the bathroom with shower and window and an utility room with the boiler and the washing machine.
- On the street level, with a separate entrance, we have a large cellar carved into the stone.
The thick walls and new fixtures make this house very cool in the summer and easy to heat in the winter. The location of the village at 675 meters above sea level, in the heart of the green Metalliferous Hills, allows its inhabitants to sleep well on summer nights without the need for air conditioners.
A special place
A strategic place halfway between the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany and the sea. During the day you can visit the most beautiful medieval historical centers of the region, such as Volterra, Massa Marittima, Siena or San Gimignano.
Other attractions, such as the Roste or the Abbey of San Galgano are a 5-minute drive from the town.
If you are a sea lover you will be spoiled for choice between the coasts of Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia or Baratti. All sandy beaches between 40 and 60 minutes by road from Boccheggiano.
If, on the other hand, you are a bike enthusiast, you are in the right place. Starting from home, you can embark directly on the paths that wind along the streets of the village and that descend along the hillsides. Routes that are part of the Tuscany Urban Cup!
What can we say, a perfect home located in a wonderful place like the Upper Maremma in Tuscany.
