Real estate for sale - Country houses
A large piece of Tuscany, wild and gentle. Nature. Silence. Beauty. Deep panorama.
Surrounded by monumental trees, an ensemble of two move-in ready houses 60 metres apart at the foot of Monte Cetona just a few kilometres from San Casciano dei Bagni. They differ in size, long history, character and possibilities. The partially medieval masonry and historical documents in the episcopal archives suggest a long history. The property was apparently part of a religious foundation in the 18th century. The masonry, however, speaks of an older past, probably as a hostel with an adjoining tavern for pilgrims on their way on the Via Francigena to Rome or to the baths of San Casciano. The large house (approx. 266 m²) has three storeys, a bakehouse in front and a loggia. Historic walls, carefully restored. Antique floors. Unusually high rooms. Extension reserves in the ground floors (former stables and magazines). The smaller house (approx. 177 m²), two-storey, with separate driveway under tall oaks, on the upper floor with eat-in kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, with conversion reserves of four rooms on the ground floor. The amazing "magic forest" with truffle reserve stabilises the climate and provides firewood. And mushrooms. The rock face behind belongs to the property, opposite a sharp-edged crete gorge impresses and leads into the distant view. Three well-tended olive groves with 330 trees, abandoned cornfields and pasture land. Many fruit trees, nuts, grapes at the house. A family meeting place with guests, home office and WLAN in rural seclusion, residence, retreat, holiday home, rental, B&B, country life? A pool can be built according to information from the building office. There is a draft for one of the possible sites. The natural road accessing the property is maintained by the municipality. The whole thing has 48 hectares. What do you do with 480,000 m² of land? An expert opinion is available. Suitable areas can be used as horse paddocks, for organic crops, niche products, further olive gardens, leased to. The land can be leased to farmers or left to nature's own devices.
