In the Chianti hills, not far from San Casciano in Val di Pesa and less than half an hour from Florence, stately villa with vineyard and olive grove for sale. The property (over 1,500 sqm) is in excellent condition and maintains the appearance of a countryside villa, while offering three addition accommodations for potential guests (totaling 14 bedrooms). The land of 5.3 ha is mostly occupied by Chianti Classico DOCG vineyards (3.2 ha) and olive groves (1.1 ha).
Services are all available in the nearby village (1km; 5'), reached via a short dirt road in excellent condition. However, the other art cities of Tuscany (including Florence, Siena, Volterra, Pisa, San Gimignano...) can be reached in just over an hour by car.
The manorial villa (981 sqm – 10,556 sqft, 10 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) is an imposing stately building structured on three floors above ground and currently divided into two residential units. The main door of the villa opens to a large reception hall with a fireplace. From here one passes on one side to the formal dining room, which in turn is connected to the kitchen, while the other leads to the aristocratic chapel (also accessible from the outside) and the first bedroom with bathroom. Also from the hall, a door on the side opposite the entrance leads to the villa’s monumental staircase to the upper floor.
Remaining on the ground floor, a secondary door at the back of the building opens onto an entrance corridor that leads to a large internal staircase (leading to the first floor of the building) and the janitor’s apartment, located at the corner of the villa. This service dwelling (also accessible from a secondary door located on the wall below the villa) consists of a living area with kitchen and fireplace, two bedrooms, and a bathroom.
The first floor is reached by two staircases, both of which lead to a majestic representation hall with a connection to a small library and private office space. At the back of the floor is a large dining room with a kitchen and a service bathroom. On the short sides of the building are the bedrooms. On the north side we have two bedrooms with a shared bathroom in the middle; on the south side three bedrooms and a bathroom. Continuing instead up the staircase from the secondary entrance, we finally reach the second floor (which could be easily made totally independent by closing the door to the second floor along this staircase). The staircase ends in a large dining room with a kitchen, connected to a living room that leads in turn to two bedrooms and the bathroom. A spiral staircase then leads to the panoramic rooftop terrace. On the opposite side, a door leads instead to a series of attic rooms, all habitable but in need of renovation, which could be converted into bedrooms and bathrooms.
Next to the villa, on the main terrace, we find a small orangery (37 sqm – 398 sqft) that is used as a summer lounge and/or relaxation area.
Underneath the villa, with access from a porch, is a small apartment (77 sqm – 828 sqft, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom) consisting of large living room with kitchenette, dining room with exit to the porch, bedroom and bathroom. The door to the janitor’s apartment is located right next to this apartment.
Also below the villa, with access from various points along the wall that supports the structure, are a small warehouse (25 sqm – 269 sqft) and a wine cellar (149 sqm – 1,603 sqft) fully equipped to produce Chianti Classico DOCG wine and vinsanto.
In front of the villa, across the small bridge, is a guesthouse (89 sqm – 958 sqft, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom) on two floors: entering the level of the villa one finds oneself on the upper floor where a bedroom and bathroom are located; the internal staircase then descends to the lower level where the living area with kitchen angle is located. To the side of the building is the old oven, still functioning and ideal for outdoor dining. Under the annex, on the other hand, is a garage (116 sqm – 1,248 sqft) where cars and tools for working the fields and gardens can be conveniently sheltered.
Next to the villa, which is independent on four sides, is a farmhouse (99 sqm – 1,065 sqft, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) that is used as a guesthouse. On the lower floor is the cellar, while on the upper floor are the living quarters, which is organized around a central corridor with four doors leading to the kitchen, living/dining room and two bedrooms, respectively. At the end of the corridor, the last door is to the bathroom.
The villa is surrounded by about 5.3 hectares (13.1 acres) of hilly land set in the early Chianti hills. Around the buildings are 2,800 sqm of garden with large paved terraces and views of the surrounding countryside. A pool could be built in the property, with an authorization already issued by the municipality.
To the northwest of the villa lies the vineyard (3.2 ha), fully registered as Chianti Classico DOCG. The vineyard could be exploited together with the cellar below the villa to produce an excellent Tuscan wine.
To the southeast, on the other hand, we find an olive grove (1.1 ha) with many trees already in full production (more than 350 plants) that allow the production of oil.
The remaining area (7,000 sqm) is covered by small plots of mixed woodland dividing the property from the neighboring farmland.
