Estate located in Rignano sull’Arno, a small town nestled in the green Tuscan hills with their vineyards and olive groves. The picturesque landscape contrasts with the intense blue sky making this one of the most beautiful, scenic and evocative parts of the Italian countryside. The Villa itself is unique in both concept and typology. Built in the 13th century, it has a splendid adjoining tower which was added in 1924. The interiors were restored in the 1990’s and the park and tower between 2009 and 2011. The building improvements were done with the aim of optimising comfort of living as well as to perfectly integrate the architecture with the landscape. The property could make an excellent medium-sized hotel given its great location which enjoys a long tourist season due to its proximity to Florence and other great cities as well one of the most prestigious shopping centers in Italy. All of these can be easily reached thanks to the rail and road networks. It would also be possible to construct a private heliport due to the large piece of land that is included in the property. The estate come with 46 hectares of land, some of which is vineyards and other parts which are also functional plots, each independent yet well integrated. There are three independent entrances onto the property. The main access is via a long characteristic cypress-lined avenue that leads directly to the entrance of the villa which has a beautiful porch used as a relaxation area. Distributed on two floors, the interiors consist of 12 beautiful apartments, each equipped with heating, a kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, beautiful working fireplaces and exposed wood beam ceilings. There is a total of 25 bedrooms, 10 kitchens, 14 bathrooms, a living room, a professional kitchen and a beautiful 145 sq m panoramic terrace with sweeping views across the Tuscan hills. The tower has already had structural works carried out including a new roof. The drains are ready to be installed. Distributed on four floors, access is onto the ground floor of 140 sq m with three rooms. The same floor plan is repeated on the first floor. On the second floor is a two-room apartment of 120 sq m with a terrace of 20 sq m. The third floor consists of a 40 sq m room with 7 windows offering a 360° panorama of the landscape. It is possible to rearrange many of the floor plans in the tower in order to make more units if so desired as many large open spaced were preserved in the restructuring. There are numerous service rooms on the property including beautiful historic cellars, a boiler room, an olive oil production room, warehouses, a laundry room, a technical room and a shop where the current owners sell their family produced wine.
