The property, originally built in the medieval ages (1200 c.a.) despite having been constantly maintained by the owner’s family with care respecting the original materials and historical features, is today in need of maintenance and restoration works. The walls of the main tower still stand as in medieval times and the original atmosphere of a Tuscan villa still remains with many features, materials, and rooms that remind us of past times.

The surrounding countryside is of typical rolling hills, cypress trees, roman pines, vineyards, and olive groves that define this wonderful area of Tuscany.

The villa sits on three floors – the ground floor where the living area is and the lower floor where the old wine cellars, olive oil tasting room, and museum are situated. It was the main villa of a larger group of farm buildings so has other buildings close by, currently not part of the sale.

The large entrance is defined by a stone portal from the Renaissance period that opens into a large reception room with one door leading through to a smaller living room with a stone fireplace and access to the walled garden with a swimming pool and outdoor dining area. Another door from the reception leads to a wonderful large dining room that can seat more than 20 guests. This room has a large fireplace and trompe l`oeil wall paintings and also has access to the garden. From the kitchen is a corridor leading to the bedrooms, all with windows and doors onto the garden.

The first floor has not been restored or used for many years but would provide further bedrooms and bathrooms. The property also has an internal courtyard with storerooms, old animal stalls, and workshops. The restored cellars now give a home to a museum of artifacts found in the area and a wine and oil tasting room. The gardens are surrounded by beautiful original stone walls. Lemon trees and a beautiful rose garden, large shady trees, and a path leading to the 12 x 6m swimming pool make the perfect place to relax. An authentic Tuscan noble Villa in the splendid hills surrounding the Florentine area. A rare opportunity to own an original piece of Tuscany’s Renaissance history.
