PRICE REDUCED - Once a convent going back over four hundred years, this is a majestic property with impressive reception rooms, Italianate gardens and vaulted cloisters all complimenting the fabulous views from its altitude of 350 metres as it nestles into its lovely hillside location.
In total there is approximately 2300 sqm of floor area of which the north wing has been restored into a principle residence with two guest/staff apartments. To the south wing and lower ground floor there is considerable potential to create further accommodation, entertaining rooms and/or the possibility of a separate residence.
On the ground floor of the property is the central state room, currently used as a living room, with panoramic balcony and access to the cloister. The ceiling and walls of this room have decorative wall and ceiling paintings dating back several hundred years which have been maintained in excellent condition. Leading off this room is a dining room, kitchen and the corridor which leads to the separate studies, master bedroom suite and guest rooms. On this floor one also finds the original chapel and games room, which similarly to the master bedroom and study, have access onto the cloisters.
On the first floor- a guest apartment and a staff apartment, both providing spacious accommodation and potential to modernise and add bathrooms.
On lower ground floor- extensive rooms which have been part-restored.
The layout with high ceilings, open plan rooms, wc’s and provision of catering areas were planned for events and weddings. These spaces would also lend themselves to further accommodation or indeed spa facilities.
The south wing of the convent is unrestored with approximately 200 sqm which could be converted into a separate residence with independent access or reunited with the core of the convent.
Garden and Land:
The impressive vaulted cloisters of the property open onto a beautifully maintained Italianate garden with an original functioning fountain as the centre-piece. Natural spring water rises from the fountain providing a charming basin for a summer swim. A swimming pool however could also be added should one wish to the lower lawn or the walled garden to the south.
Surrounding this Tuscan residence there are 9.5 hectares of land of which 2.5 hectares are olive groves with the rest being mainly woodland. A helipad could also be added .
The property is located in a quiet hillside position accessed via a Tuscan minor road. A range of services are found under 10 minutes from the property and central Florence and its airport can be reached in 20 minutes.
