DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING
The farmhouse (348 sqm – 3,744 sqft gross) is laid out onto two floors:
- Ground floor: living room, kitchen, bathroom, former stable (100 sqm) currently used as a storage room, but easily convertible into another bedroom with bathroom or cellar. A 38 sqm portico completes the floor.
- First floor: ample living room with fireplace and kitchenette, three bedrooms and bathroom. One of the bedrooms is equipped with a 38 sqm terrace.
On the rear, the house is fitted with a wood-burning oven, fully functional, and a great fireplace.
The property consists of 48 hectares of land. The plot surrounding the farmhouse (roughly 2.1 hectares including garden, private lake, vineyard and olive grove) is fully fenced with a wooden barrier and hedges (medium height of 1.5 m) so to have a nice level of privacy.
The greatest part of the property is covered in high woods (36 ha) made up mainly of maple trees, oaks, hornbeams, beech trees and chestnut trees.
The arable land (9.9 ha) is currently used as garden, but could be easily used for a great variety of cultivations.
An already productive olive grove (1.5 ha) is currently worked with organic-only methods. Same goes for the small vineyard (roughly 6,000 sqm), made up of Sangiovese, Albana and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. A small lake, populated by water lilies is located 50 m from the house. A cistern gathers rainwater and can store up to 100 cu.m of water which can then be used for irrigation.
Still inside the property several paths twist and turn throughout the woods and are linked to major tracks which are a paradise for trekking and mountain bike lovers.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The house, thanks to its quiet position amidst the nature, is perfect both as a private residence and a hosting business. Ample outdoor spaces allow breeding horses (with a connected horse riding facility) or the creation of an educational farm to show tourists and interested people how a real farm works. The stable on the ground floor could easily be converted into a cellar so to exploit the vineyard in the property.
