Estate near Arezzo Tuscany – Fixer Upper

Looking for a fixer upper project? this estate near to Arezzo in Tuscany could be ideal. Located a short 10 minute drive from Arezzo, along the track of the old railroad which connected the city to the Tiber Valley, the estate has several buildings (total surface area of about 820 sqm) including the main villa with its guesthouse, the old railway station and several storage buildings. The buildings are in need of complete restoration and updating of systems and once renovated would be ideal as both a private home a small accommodation business in a great touristic location for access to the city of Arezzo and the rest of Tuscany with cities such as Florence, Siena and San Gimignano around an hour or so away.
Services are all available in the nearby town (4km; 5’) and the historic city centre of Arezzo is just 10’ away by car.

The main villa has a surface area of 380 sqm – 4,089 sqft and dates back to the 1930s (but was structurally consolidated in 2006) on two floors comprising:
– Ground floor: entry, kitchen, dining room, living area, bedroom, closet and technical room for the systems of the house;
– First floor: six bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The property is completed by a warehouse (40 sqm – 430 sqft), a two-storey warehouse (55 sqm – 592 sqft) and a canopy (20 sqm – 215 sqft) to shelter vehicles and tools.

The buildings date back to the 1980s with the exception of the villa and haven’t been used for years and the houses and buildings need a full renovation since both the finishes and the systems are outdated and no longer compliant with modern regulations.

The estate covers approximately 10.0 hectares (24.7 acres) of land whose boundaries are marked by streams and roads.  Around the villa is a generous park (roughly 4.0 ha) with old trees, while the remaining estate is covered in chestnut trees (6.0 ha). The land is mostly irrigated via a system of pipes that also reaches the garden and flowerbeds scattered around the park. Close to the house you could also build a swimming pool.
