Description: Farmhouse in Altro
Only 10 kilometers from the center of Fucecchio, in nice hilly position, surrounded by wooded hills and olive groves, is on sale this country house of about 160 sqm, perfectly restored by the current owners. Access is provided via a tarmac road on which the owners have right of way, flanked by trees with the owned land of about 6200 square meters, on the left side. The house, on two floors, has been divided, although not officially, into two units: on the ground floor there is the unit with living room with fireplace, kitchen with pantry and close bathroom, bedroom with private bathroom. The same entrance leads to the staircase to get to the second unit, set on the first floor where we find kitchen, bathroom, main bedroom and small bedroom. The two apartments are easily convertible into one unit, just removing a wall on the ground floor. In this case the house would have dining room with bathroom, sitting room with fireplace, kitchen and pantry on the ground floor, 2 main bedrooms with bathroom and study on the top floor. The private land can fenced off, giving good privacy to the property (sold with most of the furnitures), despite being not isolated. The location is truly unique!
Fucecchio is located in a spectacular natural environment. The most important place is the Natural Reserve Of the Fucecchio Marsh, which extends for 1800 hectares between the provinces of Florence and Pistoia. Almost 230 hectares are protected by the Natural Reserve to safeguard fauna and flora in the area. The WWF (World Wildlife Fund) has a branch office here. The marsh is one of the best places for birdwatching.It is a major waypoint for migratory birds and is located in the middle of the coast and the inner mountains. Here we can observe more than 190 different species of birds: from the white cygnet which recently returned to Tuscany after 300 years. The flora is particularly delicate and thrives in the special weather of Fucecchio, which is mild and never too cold. The local Chiusi Forest, and the smaller swamps of Ramone, are also interesting from a naturalistic point of view, with many rare plants. The Padule and the wild surroundings of Fucecchio can be visited with the experts from the local Research Facility of the Marshland.
