€43k Ancient, Charming Stone Village House For Sale in Tuscany — Boccheggiano, 1.5 hours to Florence, half way between Sienna & the sea, in this lovely medieval village. If you’re thinking about #MovetoItaly & #ristrutturazionecasa projects, this could be your new vacation home in Italy!
We love these old stone village houses & this one dates back to 1300! There’s virtually no maintenance needed on the exterior, winning! While it may not be your luxury vacation home in Italy, it could be your ‘holiday home in Italy’ dream come true… We think so, check it out!
First off, it’s just 57m² & it has 2 bedrooms & & bathroom all in excellent, move-in condition over 2 levels; it’s a terraced house, but given these gigantic stone walls, you’ll never hear the neighbors. We also think the price is very optimistic. Frankly we’d offer €29k & go no higher than €35k.
It’s been nicely cared for, the spiral staircase is nice quality and aesthetically pleasing & considerate of the space & it’s in very good shape, all things considered.
It has those classic beamed ceilings throughout that we love & good solid flooring. The main floor is the living space with a nice fire place & a decent small kitchen & sweet niches & nooks.
The bedrooms are good sized & cozy; there’s no works to be done here, it’s very solid; charming & classic. There’s one bathroom upstairs & it’s in good shape, again, no works here to be done that we can see.
Of course we’d get stuck in with the usual bright shutters and flower boxes galore. Can’t have an Italian house without flower boxes, now, can you?
There is an additional external storage cave nearby included that’s for the private use of the buyer & included in the deed.
This is a superb ‘lock up n leave’ proposition for your vacation home in Italy. This could certainly work great as a holiday rental proposition, you know we’re a big fan of that. There’s a number of agriturisme & holiday rental in Italy operations going on & given the lovely village centre location, could be a nice little earner as 2 beds, entire apartment are getting up to €100 per night in the area. The village has the usual village amenities with a bakery, small shop, several restaurants, etc, and is a nice representation of typical Italian village life. It’s quiet, it’s peaceful…
