Real estate for sale - Country houses
Tuscan country estate with wine production, olive grove and pool in panoramic setting
The property for sale comprises a traditional Tuscan country house out of natural stone with typical loggias, two annexe buildings, wine cellar and a plot of about 5.3 hectares with swimming pool, vineyards, olive grove, truffle ground, fruit trees and woodland. The country house dates back to the 17th century, was last restored in the nineties and is situated in a panoramic position facing south-east right in the middle of the surrounding and partially terraced plot. The Mediterranean plants and trees, loggias and the swimming pool invite to spend the days outdoors in summer. The country house (about 280 m²) offers on the ground floor a large loggia with original wood-fired bread oven, a kitchen with fireplace and barbecue, dining room, WC with shower, guest room with bathroom, and a storage room. Internal stairs with a modern stair lift lead to the first floor with a large living room with fireplace and masoned semi-circular arch, an open veranda/loggia, a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom with bathtub as well as two additional rooms. The lower floor has a cellar room and a utility/heating room with oil and wood burners. The property features a newly built subterranean wine cellar (about 100 m²), a garage for the tractor as well as an open carport for cars and agricultural machinery. The owner produces annually on the about 0.4 hectares of well-kept vineyard (approx. 1,500 plants) about 3,000 bottles of a delicious IGT Rosso di Toscana (grape varieties Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon). A smaller vineyard (approx. 400 plants) is used to produce a fruity white wine (grape variety Chardonnay). The wine is made on the premises and matures in the subterranean wine cellar. The olive oil production on about 3.3 hectares has achieved high qualities and awards. A truffle ground completes this beautiful Tuscan property for sale. The estate offers wide panoramic views across the Valdichiana valley until Cortona. A small historic town with all shopping facilities is only a few minutes away by car.
