DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS The main building (285 square meters) is structured on four floors organized as follows and includes three suites (all with independent access) for use by the farmhouse. — Basement: cellars; — Ground floor: living room with fireplace, professional kitchen, breakfast room, pantry and bathroom. Externally we have a loggia with oven and two technical rooms. — First floor: three bedrooms (one with en-suite bathroom) and two independent bathrooms; — Second floor: attic. The three suites, all with independent access, are organized as follows: — Suite N ° 1 (51 sqm, ground floor): living room, bedroom and bathroom; — Suite N ° 2 (31 sqm, first floor): bedroom, bar area and bathroom; — Suite N ° 3 (33 sqm, first floor): study, bedroom and bathroom. An annex (36 square meters) was built in 2011 and is currently used as a multifunctional laboratory and sales area for the company's products. Upon expiry of the agricultural use restriction (2021), it would be possible to convert the building into a small home (perhaps for the caretaker) consisting of a bathroom, kitchen with dining area and bedroom. STATE AND FINISHES The property was built over the centuries around a pre-existing 14th century tower attributable to the powerful Conti Guidi. Between 1990 and 2000 everything was restructured and consolidated for the first time. A last restoration in 2015 allowed the start of the agricultural and agritourism business in 2015. In the last stages of the renovation, the Chinese tradition of Feng Shui was also used and the electricity cables were buried (with the consequent elimination of the ENEL pylons). The property focuses on protecting the environment, making the most of the solar system for the production of hot water and avoiding waste: the wastewater is in fact purified, collected in an 8,000-liter tank and then used for irrigation of the garden. To further reduce the environmental impact, a photovoltaic system could be installed to achieve electrical independence. The multipurpose annex was built in original stone from the demolition of the old sheepfold, respecting all the anti-seismic regulations in force. The water from the wells is purified both by chlorination and by reverse osmosis. EXTERIOR The property consists of 4.3 hectares of land, divided between vineyards (0.6 ha), mixed bush (0.5 ha), olive grove (0.8 ha) and arable land (2.4 ha). The arable land, an interesting detail, is used for the cultivation of saffron. Although the property falls within the production area of Rufina, the altitude of the land and the vineyard does not allow the bottling of Chianti Rufina DOCG and therefore the company produces only IGT wines. The land around the house is fenced and access is granted by a FAAC automatic gate. Other fences, separated from each other, were mounted around the vineyard, the vegetable garden and two plots used to grow saffron.
