Looking for a fixer upper project?

This farm hamlet, requiring renovation, is situated in the Emilian Apennines, a stone’s throw away from the Tuscan border. Comprising three stone farmhouses (1,266 sqm) ripe for refurbishment, it presents a golden opportunity to develop up to 15 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, making it an ideal prospect for tourist accommodation. Accompanying the residential buildings is a stable (450 m2), providing ample space for animal and fodder sheltering. The property spans 29.9 hectares, predominantly dedicated to arable farming, yet perfectly suited for vineyards and olive groves.

2 km away lies a village offering essential amenities such as a restaurant, a small grocery shop, and a post office. Larger towns like Bagno di Romagna and Mercato Saraceno are accessible within a twenty-minute drive. Moreover, the property is conveniently located just 5 km from the E45 motorway junction, facilitating easy access to the famed cities of the Romagna Coast within an hour.

Farmhouse A (302 sqm) is presently classified as an agricultural building, housing stables, storage, and cellars. Its spacious rooms offer the potential for conversion into a private dwelling or multiple flats, though it requires comprehensive internal renovation to update all facilities and finishes.

Farmhouse B (580 sqm), encompassing four floors, is similarly in need of a thorough renovation. Its generous interior space allows for the creation of a charming rural residence or several apartments.

Farmhouse C (384 sqm) is split into two cadastral units, each spread over two floors, alongside various storage areas and cellars on the ground floor:
– Unit A (136 sqm): includes a kitchen with dining area, pantry, living room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom;
– Unit B (127 sqm): comprises a kitchen with a dining area, sitting room, two bedrooms, and a bathroom.
Currently, this building is in a basic state of construction, resembling a large stone and brick quadrangle.

Positioned behind these buildings, the stable (450 sqm) accommodates animal shelters, storage rooms, and sheds, with a covered barn above for storing animal fodder.

The land, approximately 29.9 hectares in size, is mainly used for arable farming and pasture (14.4 ha), with the current cultivation focusing on fodder and grain. The possibility exists to introduce new crops such as vineyards and olive groves. Additionally, the estate includes about 7.5 ha of meadows for animal grazing and 7.7 hectares of mixed woodland. The space between the farmhouses and barn features the old farmyard, previously a hub of activity for the farmers, and two fenced plots for outdoor animal keeping adjacent to the buildings.
