STATE AND FINISHES
The building are pretty old: the date 1774 engraved on several stones of the buildings marks the year the property became part of the current municipality and not the year of construction which much earlier. The buildings (farmhouse and barn) have been carefully restored and reorganized into independent apartments without losing the typical traits of the Tuscan countryside buildings: here we find stone walls (mainly on the outside), wooden beams, terracotta floors, brick-built arches and stone fireplaces.
The property (fitted with an organic certification) is made up of a 13-hectare piece of land including 1,800 plants (currently approx. 1,200 are fully productive) allowing the production of 1,100 liters of organic extra virgin olive oil (this amount could easily be increased by fully exploiting the grove).
The land also includes several small private gardens for the apartments and a beautiful 15 x 5 m swimming pool reserved for guests of the structure.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property, given its internal division into independent apartments, is currently run as a hosting business, thanks also to its reserved location not far from basic services.
Potentially, it is also possible to use the building as a private residence, leaving some rooms empty in case of guests.
By opening two doors in the existing walls, it would be possible to obtain a single ampler villa.
