This luxury villa is located not far from the historic town of Poppi, one of the most attractive places of Casentino, Tuscany. Originally a farm with two rural outbuildings, the property (982 sqm) has been recently restored and converted into a stunning private home with two guesthouses and a 14 × 6 m swimming pool. The property enjoys a hilly and panoramic position, totally surrounded by a green unspoiled landscape, and offers a stunning view over the valley below.
The land surrounding the villa covers approximately 32.5 hectares (20.6 ha of arable land, the rest is woodland, building plot and grazing land), touched by river Arno and bordering with the Foreste Casentinesi National Park.

STATE AND FINISHES
The villa with the two annexes has been recently fully renovated and they are currently in excellent condition. The restoration has been conducted with the maximum attention to preserve all the original features, but, at the same time, with the intention of introducing systems and finishes to the highest standards.
Ceilings are with wooden beams, floors are in terracotta, granite and parquet. There is underfloor heating throughout. Big windows make the rooms very bright. Furniture is a fine mix of antique and contemporary design.
The villa with the two annexes sits within 32.5 hectares (80.3 acres) of private land, of which approximately 1.8 ha can be used for a new building (up to 1,500 cu.m).
The area surrounding the buildings is fully fenced and occupied by a small paved square, a landscaped garden with panoramic 14 × 6 m swimming pool, a pergola with a relax area, several sunbathing areas, a private well, a fountain and even a pizza oven.
The access to the property is through two gates. The property is also fitted with an outdoor children's playground.
The arable land of the property (20.6 ha) has been rented out to a local farmer who takes care of them with organic methods. The contract is expected to expire on 2027, with automatic renewal in case neither party calls it off.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The property is currently used as a private residence with a small holiday rental business.
Given its geographical location, panoramic position, size and high-quality restoration, it would be ideal to be converted either into a farming business with annexed rental units (agriturismo) or into a luxury boutique hotel.
It is also possible to buy the furniture currently inside the property for Euro 100.000 and even another building plot (roughly 1.0 ha with permits for up to 1,000 cu.m) for Euro 225.000
