RESTORED MEDIEVAL TOWER FOR SALE IN FLORENCE, TUSCANY


On the hills of Tuscany, roughly 20 km from Florence13th-century medieval tower, partially restored and converted into a private residence with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The building is currently split into three apartments for a total of 395 sqm and is ideal for a boutique accommodation business thanks to its private location close to Florence. All around, 4.5 hectares of land include a terraced garden, an 8 × 4 m pool and 165 olive trees.

Basic services (supermarkets, bank…) are available in the nearby town (2km; 5’) but in less than two hours one can reach several of the most notable towns of Tuscany.


DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS


The tower (395 sqm – 4,250 sqft, 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms) is split into three independent apartments plus a technical room (4 sqm – 43 sqft) with with own access from outside.

- Apartment A (186 sqm – 2,001 sqft): living room, reading room, kitchen, two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet. The veranda outside the living room offers a stunning view of the surrounding hills, while a staircase descends into the cellar;

- Apartment B (76 sqm – 818 sqft): kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom;

- Apartment C (129 sqm – 1,388 sqft): living/dining room, kitchenette, bathroom, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, bedroom and library leading to the rooftop panoramic terrace (60 sqm – 646 sqft).

  FLOOR PLANS OF THE TOWER

The building was mainly realized with alberese stone, a calcareous rock typical of the Florentine countryside, and was built in the 13th century. Once a watchtower guarding the underlying valley, the building has been entirely restored and is in good condition. Inside the tower, the restoration aimed at preserving its most characteristic features, with stone walls and doorways well visible. A new renovation carried out in 2022 included the replacement of the insulation on the terrace and a general retouching of the finishes.


EXTERIORS


The tower, built in a dominant and very panoramic position, is surrounded by roughly 4.5 hectares (11.1 acres) of land terraced with typical dry stone walls. The garden is well-maintained, covering the terraces towards the wood, and would also make the perfect spot for a swimming pool.

The terraces also include 165 olive trees which could be used to produce extra-virgin olive oil for personal use.

An 8 × 4 m swimming pool has been placed not far from the tower. All around the basin is a wooden sunbathing area that offers incredible views of the surrounding countryside.


USE AND POTENTIAL USES


The building, thanks to its layout and the division into three apartments, is excellent to start a boutique accommodation business, renting out the single units and/or the whole property to numerous groups. The great privacy offered by the place and its vicinity to Florence are both great features that increase the desirability of such a rental property.

Alternatively, the three units could be easily reunited into a single manorial residence for private use, enjoying great privacy and panoramic views.
