Organic country estate for sale with agritourism, wine and olive oil production
Working farm for sale, professionally run, with a boutique wine and olive oil production, located in the Maremma region in southern Tuscany. The property offers about 49 hectares of land with well-kept vineyards, olive groves, cropland and woodland. The islands Elba and Corsica can be spotted in the distance on clear days. A historic town is located only a few minutes away from the property. The country estate comprises a large, fully modernised and restructured guesthouse, which offers 10 rooms with en-suite bathrooms and two covered panoramic terraces on about 333 m² on the first floor. The ground floor was turned into a restaurant with fireplace, a comfortable and spacious lounge with fireplace, as well as a bar and professional kitchen on about 398 m². Two fully equipped wine- and olive oil cellars, a laundry and several storage-, cellar- and cold storage rooms are also located in the guesthouse on the ground- and lower floors. The attic with about 112 m² is used as archive and additional storage. A detached country house with two floors and about 203 m² is located on northwest and features a beautiful owner's apartment (about 112 m²) and a handicapped accessible guestroom. Two additional buildings, a barn with about 120 m² and a small house in natural stone with about 30 m², are currently used as depot and workshops, and can be transformed into further living area. A shed for vehicles and accessories completes the property. Both, the guesthouse and country house, were elaborately restored according to ecological principles. The living space features underfloor heating throughout, except for five rooms in the guesthouse and the first floor in the country house. The heating system and hot water generation are supported by a thermal solar system (31 m²) and heat recovery from the refrigeration plant. The heating system is wood-based with a high energy efficiency (boiler with twin fire chambers fed with own wood and coupled with a second NOx-free liquefied gas burner). A rain water cistern is supplied from all roof- and yard areas and allows for sustainable irrigation of all landscaping. The country estate and the rental business can be comfortably run throughout the year. All agricultural produce is organic and certified. The vineyards span about 4.2 hectares with Aleatico, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Nero, Sangiovese and Vermentino grape varieties. The olive groves cover about 10.5 hectares. The owners turn the grapes and olives into impressive wines and award winning olive oils. An annual production of 18,000 – 22,000 bottles of red and white wines as well as about 1,200 litres of excellent olive oil is possible. Two lease agreements (about 9 hectares total) increase the annual wine and olive oil production by about 1,200 bottles of wine and about 1,000 litres of oil respectively. The own vegetables and culinary herbs are turned into exquisite dishes, served with the estate's own wines. The business is well-established and the customer base can be transferred. The property can also be enlarged with additional living- and usable surfaces. An alternative use is possible, be it in terms of business orientation (e.g. holiday apartments) or as a private estate.
