Villa in via del Pizzicore
The house in Via del Pizzicore is divided into three floors: two bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a shower room in white mosaic, a walk-in closet, kitchen and living- dining room, with a bread oven, a fantastic fireplace, large windows with balcony and a glass terrace with a view of the valleys and the Tuscan hills. It is totally renovated and restored respecting the original stone walls, the chestnut-wood beams and antique tiles, introducing modern technology and concepts as well as art in the design of the staircase that turns as a sculpture from the ground floor to the third floor in travertine stone and wood. The large fireplace itself is a sculpture, extending from the living-room to the bedroom on the third floor.
The fusion between antique and modern was also respected in furnishing and decorating the space, obtaining a result of style, elegance, and simplicity. Special tile, mosaic and stone work was used in the bathrooms and the kitchen, which is designed with real cooks in mind. The house is equipped with new appliances: television, radio, washing machine, refrigerator and telephone. The hot water and heating system is adjustable to individual needs
