Arezzo Tuscany Country Home – Fixer Upper
Welcome to a breathtaking Tuscan retreat nestled in the enchanting hills of Arezzo. This extraordinary 12.7-hectare estate offers the perfect blend of tranquillity and convenience, boasting panoramic views that will leave you in awe. With its charming farmhouses awaiting restoration, this is your opportunity to create a dream home in the countryside.
The rustic-style buildings encompass a generous total of 689 square meters, providing ample space for up to six bedrooms and six bathrooms, including a guesthouse. Imagine the possibilities as you restore these structures to their former glory, transforming them into cosy havens of comfort and luxury.
As you explore the sprawling grounds, you’ll discover the picturesque landscapes of rolling hills and an exquisite olive grove featuring approximately 300 trees, ready to produce the finest extra virgin olive oil. Embrace the beauty of nature that surrounds you and immerse yourself in the Tuscan way of life.
Beyond its potential as a private residence, this property offers a fantastic opportunity for holiday accommodation services. Whether you choose to rent out individual rooms or the entire farmhouse, guests will be enchanted by the panoramic vistas and serene atmosphere, creating unforgettable memories.
Accessing the farmhouse is a breeze, with a short stretch of dirt road leading you to this secluded oasis. Should you require any services, the town of Arezzo is just a quick 3-kilometre drive away. Furthermore, the nearby A1 motorway grants easy access to Florence in just over an hour, while the charming towns of Valdorcia, including Montepulciano, Pienza, and Montalcino, are all within an hour’s drive.
The farmhouse itself, spanning 387 square meters, boasts a sturdy structure but is in need of restoration and renovation. Spread across three levels, the ground floor preserves the original agricultural storage and stables, while the upper floors accommodate the farmer’s living quarters. Additionally, the partially habitable attic presents a potential opportunity for additional bedrooms or storage space. Admire the timeless farmhouse finishes, from the terracotta floors and wooden beams to the charming fireplaces and stone walls, all waiting to be revitalized.
For those seeking additional possibilities, a barn of 115 square meters stands gracefully on the property, featuring two floors that can be transformed into a delightful guesthouse. The lower level showcases a grand archway, flooding the living area with natural light and creating an inviting ambience.
Not far from the farmhouse, three sheds spanning 187 square meters offer even more potential. While they currently require attention, their volumes can be reclaimed to construct a cosy guesthouse or an agricultural warehouse, tailored to your specific needs.
