This <B>1,110-hectare estate</B> is located in the hills of the <B>Val d’Elsa</B>, not far from the village of <B>Casole</B>. At the center of the estate, in a characteristic <B>rural hamlet</B>, is the main villa with private park and outbuilding, while the rest of the property is divided into six farms (two of which are used as an Agriturismo) that could accommodate several farmhouses and villas. The land is mainly agricultural, with a small vineyard</B> (2.2 ha) and the planting project for 20 ha of <B>olive grove</B>.<BR/> The town of <B>Casole d’Elsa</B>, where all necessary services can be found, is about 15’ drive from the property, and the road connecting the property to the center runs through the typical Sienese countryside, offering striking views of rare beauty.<BR/> However, the art cities of <B>Tuscany</B> (Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence...) are reachable in a little more than an hour and the Tuscan Coast is as far.<BR/><BR/> <B>THE EXISTING BUILDINGS</B><BR/> The <B>main villa</B> (1,740 sqm – 18,722 sqft, 11 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms) is set within a charming medieval hamlet and has private access via a tree-lined driveway. Finely restored, the building houses eleven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as eight beautiful reception rooms, two offices, wardrobes, two kitchens, dining rooms, games room, gym and tasting room with adjoining wine cellar. Next to the villa is a large <B>outbuilding</B> (510 sqm – 5,488 sqft) currently split into four apartments. The two buildings share an <B>8 × 4 m swimming pool</B> located in the paved courtyard bordered by the two blocks. On the eastern side of the hill, around the tree-lined driveway, stretches a beautiful 7,500-sqm park with views of the Sienese hills.<BR/> <B>Podere A</B> (656 sqm – 7,058 sqft, 11 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms) consists of three rural buildings, located downstream from the hamlet. The first building, a renovated old farmhouse, is structured on two floors and houses five apartments in addition to the reception, two breakfast rooms and the laundry on the ground floor. Behind the farmhouse is also the 13 × 7 m swimming pool reserved for guests and shared with podere B.<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°1</B></I>: living room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°2</B></I>: living room with kitchen, sitting room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°3</B></I>: living room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°4</B></I>: living room with kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°5</B></I>: kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom.<BR/> The second building is also a renovated farmhouse, smaller in size and structured on two floors, each with an independent apartment accessible from the loggia on the ground floor.<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°6</B></I>: living room with kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°7</B></I>: living room with kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom.<BR/> Near the farmhouse it is also possible to rebuild the old barn (47 sqm – 506 sqft), demolished in the past as it was uninhabitable and unused.<BR/><BR/> Not far from podere A is <B>podere B</B> (511 sqm – 5,498 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms), also used in accommodation function with four guest apartments:<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°8</B></I>: living room with kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°9</B></I>: kitchen with exit to the loggia, living room, bedroom and bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°10</B></I>: living room with kitchen and exit to the loggia, two bedrooms and bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°11</B></I>: living room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.<BR/> A shed with technical room and shelter for tools completes the farmhouse.<BR/><BR/> <B>DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL FOR THE PROPERTY</B><BR/> The other farms on the property already have plans for the redistribution of existing volumes or the creation of new buildings (totaling 2,860 sqm – 30,774 sqft, up to 38 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms). Please, bear in mind that the proposed layout is intended for eventual expansion of the accommodation business by maximizing the number of guests, but there is nothing preventing the creation of independent houses on each farm, to be rented out as an entire building.<BR/><BR/> <B>Podere C</B> (1,330 sqm – 14,313 sqft, 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms), on the other hand, consists entirely of agricultural sheds, currently used as a shelter for farm equipment and livestock. However, there is a plan to demolish part of them so as to have surfaces available to create two farmhouses that could house three independent apartments:<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°12</B></I>: living room with kitchen and four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°13</B></I>: living room with kitchen and four bedrooms with en-suite bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°14</B></I>: living room with kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.<BR/><BR/> For <B>podere D</B> (510 sqm – 5,487 sqft, 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms) there are plans to build a farmhouse complemented by a one-story shed. The house could be divided into three apartments with independent access (two on the ground floor, one on the second floor).<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°15</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°16</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms with en-suite bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°17</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.<BR/><BR/> <B>Podere E</B> (510 sqm – 5,487 sqft, 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) currently consists of a large shed. Demolishing the shed would allow the construction of two buildings (a house and a storage).<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°18</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°19</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°20</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.<BR/><BR/> <B>Podere F</B> (510 sqm – 5,487 sqft, 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms) has building permits for two buildings (farmhouse and storage) that could accommodate up to three guest apartments.<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°21</B></I>: Living room with kitchen and dining area, four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°22</B></I>: living room with kitchen and dining area, three bedrooms with en-suite bathroom;<BR/> • <I><B>Apt. N°23</B></I>: living room with kitchenette, three bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.<BR/><BR/> <B>EXTERIORS</B><BR/> The farm spreads over an area of nearly 1,110 hectares, about half of which is covered by forest (595.5 ha). The remaining areas are given over to arable land (172.0 ha), olive groves (0.4 ha with planned planting up to 26.3 ha as a result of the grubbing up of the woodlands planted in past years, see below), a small vineyard (2.2 ha), pastures (145.7 ha) and fallow land (134.2 ha).<BR/> As for arable land, the predominant crops are alfalfa (146.4 ha), animal fodder (7.7 ha) and barley (17.9 ha). Several lakes and ponds scattered all around the property allows irrigating the fields.<BR/><BR/> Large portions of arable land and pasture (about 59.4 ha) had been used for wood arboriculture in the past, with variable and not always optimal results. The final deadline for commitments was in 2020, and consideration was given to uprooting trees (cherry and walnut trees predominantly) and converting a portion of the land (43%) to olive groves, considering the areas with best exposure for modern olive growing.<BR/><BR/> The farm also currently includes an organic and semi-wild Limousine cattle breeding farm, with an annual presence of around 150 heads (including adults and calves).<BR/><BR/> <B>POSSIBLE FRACTIONING</B><BR/> The farm, for easier management, could also be split into six estates (excluding the portion of the villa with the park and outbuilding), each around the buildings mentioned above. Below is an outline of the dimensions thought for a possible subdivision.<BR/> • <I><B>Podere A</B></I>: 56.8 hectares + 656 sqm<BR/> • <I><B>Podere B</B></I>: 100.2 hectares + 511 sqm<BR/> • <I><B>Podere C</B></I>: 557.6 hectares + 1,330 sqm<BR/> • <I><B>Podere D</B></I>: 81.4 hectares + 510 sqm<BR/> • <I><B>Podere E</B></I>: 218.4 hectares + 510 sqm<BR/> • <I><B>Podere F</B></I>: 95.1 hectares + 510 sqm<BR/><BR/> <B>USE AND POTENTIAL USES</B><BR/> The property, which is already largely usable for receptive and agricultural purposes, has enormous potential due to the large volumes and impressive expanses of land available. The land is also very suitable for the planting of vineyards and olive groves if one wished to take the path of oil and wine production, exploiting part of the volumes for the creation of a modern wine cellar.<BR/> Alternatively, the construction of other farmhouses and/or villas on the various poderi would allow the estate to be divided into several parts to be managed separately in a receptive function or to be resold as independent properties once completed.
