"Oh this quiet noise, this solitude. And that mill that is seen and not seen among the chestnut trees ... I feel happy as a cloud or a tree ..." (A. Bertolucci).
Immersed in the verdant countryside of Camaiore, in the immediate vicinity of the historic center, easily reachable on foot, this unique and tasteful cottage is for sale. It is in fact an ancient oil mill dating back to 1650, recently renovated with great taste to make it a special place where you can live or start a profitable accommodation business.
The history of Molin Bianco is truly fascinating: the old oil mill consisted of two main bodies, the main oil mill, adjacent to the current, dates back to 1500, and active until a few years ago in production of first pressing oil, and the second mill, inside which today stands the house for sale, intended for the pressing of second pressing olives. The two mills were separated by a marvelous arched aqueduct also dating back to the 16th century, still present in the garden of the property, an element of great beauty that immediately takes us back in time, able to amaze every visitor to this magical and enchanting place: a perfect harmony of architecture combined with nature.
The property is completely independent and has a gross area of about 150 square meters: it is presented in its total originality, both in terms of external and internal structure, but renovated with attention to details, which make the space welcoming and hospitable, giving life to a warm and intimate atmosphere.
Molin Bianco is accessed via an independent entrance that introduces us to the beautiful and very particular living area, an incredible place, where the ancient machinery for pressing olives has been perfectly preserved, recovered and integrated; even, in one of these a fireplace has been created, fully functional, an element that together with the original terracotta floors, exposed beams and bricks on the ceiling and dark wood finishes, gives immense warmth to the property, making us immediately feel at home, transforming the living room into a perfect scenography that combines antiquity and tradition with modern comforts. In this evocative open space there is the bar area, the cellar, the kitchenette that overlooks the front garden, equipped with all the necessary appliances and adjacent to a beautiful wood-burning oven, and the dining area, located in a splendid niche characterized by the presence of the ancient mill wheel. The space has been partially lofted and via a stone staircase you can reach the upper floor, where we find the sleeping area, with an exposed double bedroom and bathroom with shower.
The property is accompanied by a fabulous garden of about 1800 square meters, partly flat and partly on a hill with a “beautiful look” over the splendid Camaiore basin. On the top of this hill a swimming pool can be built, with related service equipment, an object that will help make this magnificent rustic house even more special. The house is also equipped with every type of service and comfort, from the plant engineering point of view. The heating takes place by means of a hot air system, therefore with the elimination of the radiators, obtaining the livability temperature in a short time.
Il Molin Bianco is an exclusive property with an ancient flavor that takes us back in time but without sacrificing comfort: a perfect home for a couple, for artists who need a magical place where they can best express their creativity or for those who want a truly unique place to spend their time. The property lends itself very well as a place to start an accommodation business, such as a typical restaurant, being located a few kilometers away from the historic center of Camaiore and a few minutes by car from all the main centers of Versilia, such as Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore.
