DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The farmhouse consists of a 400 sqm farmhouse on two levels, which was built in the last year.
On the ground floor there is a cellar with room to store the olive oil produced here and a machinery shed with two separate entrances. On the first floor there are six rooms that can be used according to the buyer’s needs. The first floor is served by a stone staircase, which is set in a centuries-old wall.
There are already the projects and the business plan to create an Agriturismo – organic Agriturismo/Relais in the six rooms on the first floor, which would include three suites with mezzanine floor and private bathroom, eat-in kitchen, a guest bathroom accessible from outside, a reception, a boiler room and a large porch with exposed beams.
There is the possibility to build an infinity pool next to the farmhouse.
In front of the farmhouse there is a large square with a panoramic path that could become a multifunctional path: it is possible to arrange events, al fresco dinners by candlelight, BBQ, yoga, Pilates and stretching courses.
Since the building is partly finished, the buyers can complete it or change its use as he prefers.
STATE AND FINISHES
The building was built using reinforced concrete on the ground floor, reinforced masonry on the first floor and is currently finished to a builder’s finish both internally and externally; it has to be completed according to the buyer’s needs. The building was built between 2015-2016, with a thermal insulated and ventilated roof, external wall insulation to prevent water infiltration; the electric system and the central water system can be already installed.
There are, moreover, two underground rainwater tanks (5000 liters in total).
The property has a 20,0000 sqm park/olive grove with more than 600 olive trees, of which 50% are Leccino and the rest Maurino, Pendolino, Leccio del Corno (24 years old) in full production and other 80 olive trees of Rasara and Frantoio, recently planted. There are also 30 organic cherry trees.
The olive grove is located among 2.500 metres of centuries-old stone walls dating back to the 18th century, better known as “Masiere”, which protect the olive trees and make the olive grove unique; they have been recovered recently (2013-2015) with their own stones worked with the chisel.
The extra virgin olive oil produced is registered as organic olive oil and it is being bottled in dark glass 250 ml and 500 ml bottles. The produced olive oil is unique for its very low acidity, the richness of polyphenols, the delicate taste and the fruity aroma. Approx. 140 quintals of olive oil are produced with an average yield of 14%. In the last year about 3,500 500-ml bottles plus 1,200 250-ml-bottles have been bottled. The company has solid and well-established clients (both national and international): 5-star hotels, Michelin-Starred restaurants, luxury delicatessen and mountain restaurants, especially in Northern Italy. Moreover, the olive oil is being exported to Japan and Thailand by international buyers.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
