Set within 23 hectares of land, the estate has as its centrepiece this elegant historic villa which dates back to the 1800s and enjoys a dominant position in the countryside near to the picturesque towns of Soiana and Casciana Terme.
As well as around 23 hectares, the estate also contains a further 1700 sqm of buildings originally dedicated for work on the estate,
The villa itself is surrounded by 2 hectares of private parkland and olive groves, all currently in production.
Access is via an impressive tree lined avenue which leads from the main gates to the parking area.
Once inside the villa, the impressive frescoes, vaulted ceilings and original floors evoke the elegance and history of the period in which the villa, designed by an architect of national fame, was built.
Spreading out over two floors plus a substantial loft area of over 200 sqm, the villa is set up as follows:
GROUND FLOOR (213 sqm):
Entrance (There are four entrances from each side) Kitchen, Pantry, large frescoed Dining Room, large living salon with impressive open fireplace, study, storage area, double bedroom and 1 bathroom.
FIRST FLOOR (213sqm):
Accessed via an elegant staircase, magnificent salon with original mosaic style flooring and balcony offering delightful views of the estate and neighbouring countryside. 4 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom and 3 bathrooms.
The top floor of the villa offers around 212 sq metres of attic base, part of which could be used as a habitable space
The immediate surrounding gardens of the villa , with their centuries old trees and immaculately kept hedgerows, also contain around 74 sqm of annexes made up of garage space, woodburning oven, technical room, laundry and small cantina, all of which are in need of some restoration work.
THE SURROUNDING ESTATE
The surrounding includes a further 21 hectares of land plus around 1700 sqm of buildings which include a small group of apartments in farm buildings, most of which are habitable but in need of restoration work, a small chapel and the estate's original winery and cellars. (Around 1000 sqm of the above buildings refer to annexes such as storage, cellar and garage space.)
Together, this lends itself perfectly to the realisation of an upscale boutique hotel/accommodation/restaurant activity.
