Fattoria to restore with 10 ha land between Florence and San Gimignano
In the hills of the Florentine Chianti countryside, with a magnificent view to the south, this former fattoria is for sale in a dominant position. It consists of a typical "Leopoldina" manor house with turret, three outbuildings and about 10 hectares of surrounding farmland.
The fattoria, whose origins date back to the 14th century, originally belonged to the noble Guicciardini and has retained its original architectural features, but is in need of profound restoration. From its dominant position on a gentle south-facing slope, the view travels over the enchantingly beautiful surrounding hills.
The main house, called Leopoldina (approx. 929 m² gross area), extends over four levels with two central staircases leading from the basement to the upper floor.
In the basement, accessible from the hillside, are two cellars and three small storage rooms.
The basement consists of 11 rooms, including a kitchen with fireplace, and an oven.
The ground floor is divided into 12 rooms, including two kitchens with typical fireplaces.
The layout of the first floor shows 10 bedrooms and a WC.
The manor house is crowned by a turret, which used to serve as a dovecote.
A few meters away is a larger agricultural outbuilding (approx. 133 m²) to the north of the manor house with two stories. A smaller outbuilding (approx. 105 m²) and a coach house (approx. 65 m²) are located south of the Leopoldina.
On the approx. 10 ha property there is an olive grove (approx. 4.8 ha) with approx. 800 trees, approx. 3.7 ha of arable land, where Chianti wine used to be cultivated, and approx. 1.4 ha of woodland.
