Stone Property with land, gardens, swimming pool and olive grove

This small hamlet, converted to offer guest accommodation, can be found in a relatively tranquil position on the hills of Florence, near the towns of Rufina and Pontassieve.
After undergoing renovations over the course of the past few years, the property now has 6 apartments totalling 875 square metres and a total of 11 bedrooms.
A large olive grove, a swimming pool, and a lovely garden totalling 4,500 square metres may be found in the outdoor areas (roughly 4.5 ha).

All of the necessary services can be found in the town that is only 5 kilometres away (10 minutes), and travelling to Florence from the property takes no more than 45 minutes.
Arezzo, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Siena, Lucca, and Pisa are just a few of the historic cities that can be reached by driving in less than two hours.

The property was formerly a castle that belonged to a prominent merchant family in Florence and dates back to the 12th century.
The defensive function of the castle ceased to be necessary over the course of time, and it eventually evolved into a self-sufficient rural village.
The structure has undergone restoration and has been transformed into an agritourism business with a total of six separate apartments.

Building A is a three-story structure that encompasses 435 square metres (4,681 square feet), with 7 bedrooms, and 5 bathrooms. It is currently home to four separate apartments in addition to a large common room on the ground floor that is perfect for hosting dinners or just relaxing.
A historic watchtower, which can still be seen today and has been renovated into a quaint apartment, served as the basis for the construction of this edifice.

Apartment N°1 (75 square metres): living room, kitchen with dining area, two bedrooms, and bathroom;
Apartment N°2 (60 square metres): living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom with shower;
Apartment N°3 (75 square metres, on three floors): ample living room with open-plan kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms (the room on the top floor features a private loggia);
Apartment N°4 (75 square metres): living room with kitchen and loggia, two bedrooms, and bathroom

Building B is also composed of three stories and has a total area of 390 square metres (4,196 square feet), as well as four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The entire ground floor, which is comprised of three enormous rooms, serves as a communal area for the guests and includes a dining room, a playroom, and a restroom.
There are three smaller rooms containing the house’s systems that each have their own separate access from the outside.
Two individual flats with multiple levels can be found on the ground floor of the upper floor:

– Apartment N°5 (80 square metres): a spacious living room with a kitchen, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms;
– Apartment N°6 (70 square metres, on two floors): a living room/kitchen with a fireplace, two bedrooms, and a bathroom.

Building C contains a registration room, two service bathrooms, and a technical room. It has a total area of 50 square metres or 538 square feet and serves as the greeting and reception area for guests.

The estate extends across the rolling hills of Chianti Rufina, which are located to the north of Florence in Tuscany. Its total land area is roughly 14.1 hectares (34.8 acres).

Paved paths lead to a garden that spans 4,500 square metres and is placed just beyond a small plaza that is also paved. The hamlet is denoted by these walks.
A swimming pool of 12 by 6 metres and a sunbathing area comprised of stone and grass may be found in this area.
This location is ideal for the installation of gazebos and canopies, which will transform the area into a venue that is warm and inviting and perfect for hosting events, weddings and parties.

The remaining land area features a sizable olive grove that spans around 4.5 hectares and has the potential to yield outstanding extra-virgin olive oil.
The remainder of the property is comprised of a forest (8.0 hectares) and agricultural land (1.2 hectares) that is suited for a variety of crops.
