This Tuscan Church conversion has transformed the property into a modern stylish villa with guest house complete with 2.76 hectares of gardens and surrounding land.
Recently restored using high quality materials, this stone villa is the result of the conversion of a church into a private residence, in 1888.
Originally built in the 11th century in Romanesque style, the church has been remodeled over the years, an example being the reduction of the three naves into a single spacious aisle in the 17th century.
The meticulous renovation has preserved some of the details of the original building, like round arches and motifs of the Early Middle Ages. Tastefully painted with pastel colors, the cozy rooms of the ground floor boast original frescos on the walls.
The property consists of a main villa of 245 square meters and a guest house of 122 square meters, for a total surface area of 367 square meters.
Villa – 245 square meters
The ground floor hosts a lounge, a hallway, three sitting rooms and a dining room.
On the first floor there are a kitchen, a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a hallway with wardrobe, a bedroom and a bathroom.
Guest house – 122 square meters
The ground floor comprises a lounge and an eat-in kitchen with access to the loggia. Still on this floor, with independent entrance, there is a cellar.

Surrounded by green lawns with hedges and flowers, the property is completed by 6,82 acres (2,76 hectares) of arable land.
From the main asphalted road, a tree-lined gravel road leads to the property, surrounded by fields and enjoying great privacy. On the border between Tuscany and Umbria, this charming villa is set in a wonderful hillside location, very well-connected , midway between the two hilltop towns of Monterchi, renowned for the famous Piero della Francesca’s fresco “Madonna del Parto”, and Citerna, medieval village overlooking the Tiber Valley. Thanks to its strategic location, the most important cities and towns of Central Italy are all within easy reach.
Arezzo, birthplace of Petrarch and Vasari, is only half an hour away, while, thanks to its vicinity to the dual carriageway E45, it is possible to get to Perugia and to the International Airport of Umbria in less than one hour’s drive.
