A remarkable example of energy efficiency and style, this modern villa, meticulously finished by the current owners, is situated in the foothills of San Ginese, a beautiful medieval hamlet near Lucca and Pontedera.
There are two floors above ground measuring around 400 sqm plus a semi-interred basement area, surrounded by a private garden area of around 800 sqm.
Access is via remote controlled wrought iron gates. The area immediately surrounding the house is completely paved while the green area contains some olive trees and ample space for an in-ground swimming pool.
The villa is set out as follows:
Ground floor: Entrance via a portico which offers a delightful area for open air dining, hall, spacious open plan dining/kitchen area, living room filled with natural light and superb views of the valley and beyond. A small hallway leads to the main bedroom complete with private bathroom and storage space, while another hallway leads to the second master bedroom with private bathroom and walk in closet.
First floor: The staircase leads to the next floor with a further two double bedrooms, each with private bathroom and a small studio. There is also significant loft/storage space.
Basement: Accessed by either an internal staircase or from outside, this area offers a garage of around 54 sqm, laundry room with gym corner, bathroom, external drainage wall with storage room and utility room with fireplace and portico. There is also a technical room at the side of the building.
Features include high quality parquet flooring, electric blinds, double glazing in every window, alarm system, cooling system and automatic external lighting.
The whole property enjoys thermal insulation, electric heating/cooling fan-coil system, energy efficient 'Stube' wood burning system designed in the North of Italy and solar panels on the roof.
All of the above allow the property the highest level of energy certification (A4).
The garden has a wood burning oven and barbecue area and small vegetable garden.
A superb solution either as a first or second home, given the short walking distance to San Ginese with its shops and services. The nearest supermarket is a two minute drive away.
