Three country houses for sale in Tuscany with a restoration project by John Pawson
Three Italian country houses to restore for sale in Tuscany. The property is located close to Figline Valdarno between the Valdarno valley and the Chianti, about 40 minutes from the old town of Florence. A restoration project has been drawn up by John Pawson, a British architectural designer known for minimalist aesthetics. A local Italian architect and her team, specialists in heritage property restoration, are available to coordinate and oversee the restoration process. The three buildings are located on a panoramic plateau and are surrounded by well-kept olive groves, meadows and woodland with views across the Valdarno valley. The main country house offers about 374 m² on two floors. The ground floor is currently divided into a spacious eat-in kitchen with antique fireplace and wood-fired oven, four rooms as well as ex-stables and storage rooms. The first floor offers a spacious living room, four rooms and a former hay- barn. In addition, a typical wine cellar is located on a subterranean floor. The two annexe buildings are situated above the main country house. The first annexe building (about 142 m²) features an eat-in kitchen with fireplace, living- and storage room on the ground floor as well as two rooms on the first floor. The second annexe building, a former stable, has about 58 m². The surrounding plot is divided into olive groves (about 51,280 m²), arable land (23,900 m²) and woodland (158,360 m²). The property is part of a private hunting ground and borders with Villa Il Palagio, the Tuscan estate of Trudie Styler and Sting. The property is accessible via a white road (about 1.7 km). All shopping facilities in Figline Valdarno are about 6 km away. The old town of Florence can be easily reached by car or train from Figline Valdarno.
