In the heart of Casentino (Parco Nazionale Foreste Casentinesi), not far from the cozy medieval hamlet of Poppi, this farm accommodated several buildings for a total of 1,110 sqm and 10 bedrooms. The location not far from interesting towns such as Florence, Siena and Montepulciano would also allow starting a rental business (B&B or Agriturismo) and the flat land around is ideal if one wants to bring horses.
Poppi offers all the necessary services and the town can be reached in roughly 10’ by car. The closest airport is Florence (80km; 1h 30’) but equally valid alternatives are Bologna, Pisa and Rome.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The main farmhouse (380 sqm – 4,089 sqft, 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom) is laid over two floors organized as follows:
- Ground floor: garage, cellar, storage room and technical rooms;
- First floor: kitchen, living room, studio, hallway, four bedrooms and a bathroom.
A second farmhouse (250 sqm – 2,690 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) is laid over two floors and houses three independent apartments:
- Apartment N°1 (basement): two-room apartment with bathroom, studio, technical room, laundry room and storage rooms;
- Apartment N°2 (ground floor): kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom;
- Apartment N°3 (ground floor): kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom;
The property is then completed by a barn (180 sqm – 1,937 sqft), an agricultural shed (80 sqm – 861 sqft) and warehouse (220 sqm – 2,367 sqft), all regularly registered and convertible into masonry buildings.
STATE AND FINISHES
The buildings are all structurally solid and in excellent condition. Currently, the farmhouse with apartments is the only used building and underwent restoration in recent times. The main farmhouse is habitable nonetheless but needs a general renovation and update to be fully exploited.
The farm covers a total of approximately 12.1 hectares of land, at the center of which we can find the buildings. A small portion of this land is covered by woodland (1.2 ha) while the majority of the surface is registered as arable land (10.9 ha) suitable for planting vineyards.
Not far from the two farmhouses located the 12 × 6 m swimming pool with stone-paved solarium.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property, given the presence of several buildings and bedrooms, could be an excellent starting point for an accommodation business that would also benefit from its location not far from the most interesting centers of Tuscany, such as Florence, Siena, Montepulciano or Pienza.
What’s more, the ample open and flat surfaces could be used for horse-breeding.
