Homes for sale in tuscany, ancient noble farmhouse, close to the teatro del silenzio in lajatico, ref. svm120


Beautiful portion of a house dating to the mid-late seventeenth century, the form of which was originally square, already present in the famous ‘Catasto Leopoldino’ (Leopold’s Land Registry) dated 1821. In a dominant position, few kilometers from the historic center of Casciana Terme (PI), the portion of the building in question is built on three floors and it has been partly renovated while maintaining the original style with tiled floors and antique tiles, and the ceilings partially with vaults and partially beamed, and it covers about 200 square meters. The property, which still today includes a private church, is surrounded by about 2.5 hectares of land planted with olive trees and vineyards, with pine forest and adjacent forest. Hence the presence of the church and the vestments. With regard to the canons of construction of the noble mansion of the family in question, this certainly could not build a building that did not have all the relevant features of the homes of the gentry: vaguely rectangular plant or square frames of local limestone (perhaps from the area of Casciana Alta) the doors and windows, which, smaller on the ground floor, had to be completed by diamond pattern railings, typical of the period; the cornerstones and the curb of separation between the ground floor and the first floor, works with the same rugged stone, all data that contribute to a structure dating from the mid - late seventeenth century. The interior of the building itself is also full of interest. Beyond the dome vault roofs made in bricks, excellent example of the skill of the laborers in the area, and the rooms of the ground floor used as stables, cellars or rooms for the servants, the first floor reserve big peculiarity: through a wide enough scale, topped by arched ceiling and framed at its beginning by an arch with wedges and side keystone in relief, here it is one of the few examples of terracotta floor tiles square, perhaps locally produced, which survives only in very few vestries and noble environments of the Valdera. Only these factors could be sufficient to result in a precisely dating of this building and give due importance to such an architecture. Surely then in the vaults and in other rooms of the house you can still hide painted then covered by improper paintings one on another or erased almost entirely during the maintenance over the centuries. The nearby house below, then, it was already indicated by the Leopold’s Land Registry of 1821, and was probably the home of the family factor. As mentioned above, like for any self-respecting noble family, could not miss the chapel. A rectangular, with slightly arched lower coverage, decorated with architectural motifs in quadrangles within blue squares, at its center, within a circular frame the divine triangle with the eye, all within a radiating nimbus light. The altar, facing north, consisting of a table against a wall, is embellished with a painted decoration with the images of the patron saints of the Community of Chianni, Donato and Maura. Nowadays, in the portion of the building for sale, on the ground floor in particular, where is the above described private chapel (common good with another owner), you still perceive the vestiges of the property manor where the priest lived, with a large lounge at the entry with original fireplace and kitchen, living room (easily convertible into a double bedroom), bathroom and kitchen / laundry service room and adjacent garage. The large original stone staircase leads upstairs where there are two large bedrooms with bathroom and service room. Going further the stairs you have access to the attics, really special with a room with sloping ceiling, used as a bedroom. This plan preserves the atmosphere of the time. The property includes a private garden with beautiful views and a stone structure with a room dedicated to the wood-burning oven to cook meals in a true Tuscan style. Energy rating: "G" Opportunity to buy also the adjacent and mirror portion of the building (about 230 square meters with about 3.5 hectares of land belonging to it- it belongs to another owner, the price of its is in private negotiation).
