A superb rural Tuscan estate close to Florence whilst also surrounded by idyllic countryside providing the opportunity to generate income from tourist rentals and agriculture.
The buildings of the estate cover a total floor area of 3,000 m2 divided into charming one, two and three bedroom apartments. All the apartments boast individual and authentic features such as majestic fireplaces, exposed beams, stone basins and polished terracotta floors. The castle wing has been structurally restored allowing the new owner to choose the use for the impressive spaces and their viewing room.
To serve the commercial functions of the estate there is a large entertaining room with catering facilities leading onto a panoramic terrace - ideal for use as a wedding venue. There are also large agricultural rooms currently used for storage which could be converted into further accommodation. Finally there are vast cellars, presentation rooms and a shop providing the spaces required for a wine business.
Grounds & Land
The immediate surroundings of the castle and its outbuildings cover 2.2 hectares of beautifully manicured gardens with irrigation and lighting. There is an infinity pool with sun bathing terraces, dining terrace, courtyards, vegetable gardens, fruit orchard and wonderful mature trees.
Beyond the gardens are 7.5 hectares including 1 hectare of vines. Should one wish to acquire additional land one could purchase 35 hectare of certified organic arable land with planting rights.
The estate is found just 17km from the centre of Florence. The city can be reached either by road or by train (the station is 3km from the property with regular trains running into the centre throughout the day as well as south towards Rome). Within 5 to 10 minutes by car one finds a range of services as well as the famous designer outlet centres of the Incisa/Valdarno area.
