Living in the tangible sign of love, respect and sustainability of the environment
This stone farmhouse of about 220 sqm has been restored in a natural way to ensure the best healthiness of the building.
Starting with the ground floor, where the old stone crawl space has been replaced by a layer of cellular glass, a material with excellent insulating capacities. Only natural lime and slaked lime was used in both the interior and exterior façades, as well as in the plastering.
The roof is insulated with cork slabs, wooden window frames and double-glazing with an insulating chamber.
In short, an energy class A of great value.
Organised on two levels, the farmhouse is designed to accommodate one or two families and to receive guests.
On the ground floor there is a large kitchen with a bright and welcoming living area, a bathroom and a double bedroom, as well as a storage room.
On the first floor, a second property unit consisting of 3 rooms with two bathrooms, an open kitchen and living room.
The property also includes a ruin to be restored.
Every aspect has been skilfully thought out and realised, such as the heating system and hot water, which are supplied by an integrated solar panel system together with the latest generation boiler, both wood and pellet-fuelled. To supplement this, each level of the house is equipped with a wood-burning stove.
The 6 hectares that make up the land area are treated with the technique of regenerative organic agriculture that aims at minimal tillage and only organic treatments such as compost, manure and wood chips.
Not only that, this technique includes the valorisation of rainwater, through the collection in 5 cisterns of 3000 litres, 1 cistern of 500 litres and two cisterns of 300 litres, but to make the most of this technique, the planting of the crops has been done according to the keyline scheme, i.e. following the level lines to optimise the collection of rainwater.
On the property, there is currently an olive grove of over 240 trees, an orchard of 60 current and ancient varieties and, of course, the vegetable garden.
A lavender plot was planted also recently planted near the house.
The property has a spring with a fountain dating back to the beginning of the last century.
An important location, only 10′ from Massa Marittima, 25′ from the sea of the Gulf of Follonica, 1.30 from Siena, 1.30 from Pisa and 2 hours from Florence.
The utilities are all present, connection to the aqueduct with autoclave and reserve of 1000 Lt., electricity, Wi-Fi.
