A property with origins dating back to the 1300s, 45 minutes to the West of Florence, with exceptional views and 31 hectares of land. The estate consists of two farmhouses, one of which has been converted into four apartments for short term holiday lets.
Passing through a tiny hamlet, then olive groves and pine forest when arrives at this hillside retreat and is immediately struck but the seclusion and tranquility of the location. The views are simply breathtaking to the west with the valley below and on clear days one can even see the Appenines in the distance.
The property is split between the owner dwelling and the barn apartments. The main house was fully restored some thirty years ago retaining wonderful original features, such as grandiose fireplaces and stone architraves, and providing three bedrooms. Then subsequently in the late 1990s the barn was restored to create four one-bedroom guest apartments, each of approximately 45 sqm.
In addition there is a large storeroom in the main house where further accommodation could be created and there is a garage in the barn.
