In the past centuries the Valgraziosa valley was home to over 100 mills and oil presses, whose millstones were powered by the strenght of streams. This country house for sale near Calci was a former mill: traces of it can still be found in a room where the wooden wheel and gears were once housed, while a part of the building was already registered in the Leopoldo di Toscana land registry of 1824.
The civil dwelling has a surface of about 130 m2 which unfolds over several levels: the ground floor is occupied by the living area , consisting of a large room with fireplace, bathroom and kitchenette . On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one of which with balcony, with the bathroom nearby, while on the top floor is the attic: a single room with views. In the basement there is a utility room of about 14 sqm, in addition to the room once occupied by the wheel, of 20 sqm.
