A truly remarkable opportunity to restore an historic architectural gem located just 10 minutes from central Florence. The property sits at the heart of a 12 hectare estate, complete with private chapel dating back to the 1700s, cypress tree-lined drive and extensive olive groves.
The Main House
On arrival at the property one is immediately struck by the grandeur of the main facade with beautiful loggia. A second loggia is found on the south facade which leads onto a large terrace from which the panoramic far-reaching views can be enjoyed.
The accommodation is spread over three floors plus a tower room. The west wing of the property is currently habitable (though of a rustic style) whilst the rooms to the east wing require full restoration including structural works. Throughout the property there are a wealth of original features including grandiose fireplaces, pietra serena stairways, exposed oak beams and terracotta. The potential is immediately apparent that on completion this will be a simply breathtaking residence.
In addition to the main building there are also outbuildings totalling 120 m2 of floor area which could be used as accommodation, games room, guest/staff apartments or as a pool house.
The property sits atop a hillside with all the surrounding land being owned by the property and included in the sale. The land is mainly olive groves with some arable land. There are several areas of the grounds which would be ideal for a swimming pool. In total there are 12 hectares of land which includes 2,400 olive trees and arable land.
The property is located just 10 minutes from central Florence and under 5 minutes from several charming villages and restaurants. 30 minutes to Florence airport and 10 minutes to the motorway exit of the A1.
