State of repair

The property is in excellent maintenance conditions being, for years, rented for seasonal tourist stays. The farmhouse was built from scratch in 2011, with the choice of high quality materials and finishes. The roof is gabled, equipped with insulation, with a Roman-style terracotta roof covering. The facades are all in stone and the openings to the outside (doors and windows) are embellished with stone frames. Internally, the structure of the internal floors is made up of characteristic wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The floors of the living areas are in planed oak parquet. The windows are all made of wood and equipped with double glazing. The swimming pool was also built in 2011 and is in a state of perfect efficiency. The land owned by the property has always been maintained with ordinary administration operations, even though it has not, to date, seen the presence of particular crops, thus facilitating their management.


The property is served by all utilities such as electrical connection, water supply guaranteed by connection to the public aqueduct as well as a private well, autonomous natural gas heating system with 2 independent boilers, telephone line, ADSL coverage, alarm system (sensors windows + volumetric), wire broadcasting, air conditioning, entrance gate with automatic opening. The domestic water drainage system consists of 1 IMOFF dispersion pit shared with the neighboring property.

Use and Potential Uses

“Podere Le Balze” is an ideal solution to be immediately lived in view of a definitive move or for use as a second home during the summer. The property is now perfect for residential use by two families but, if necessary, it could be unified into a single residence by making simple changes to the internal layout. Considering the peculiarities of the property, it would lend itself perfectly to being included in the luxury rental circuits and therefore, as is the case today, proposed for seasonal tourist rentals.
