DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS The main body of the property consists of a sixteenth-century villa (about 1,125 square meters, 11 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms) organized on four floors plus a tower with a panoramic terrace. — Basement floor: 2 loggias, 3 bathrooms, cellar, living room, utility room, dining room, technical room, laundry room, warehouse; — Ground floor: 4 bedrooms, kitchen, pantry, wardrobe, hall, garage, 3 closets, 3 lounges, 2 living rooms (with dining room), dining room and 3 bathrooms; — First floor: 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, closet and three terraces; — Second floor: large attic with staircase to the terrace at the top of the tower. Then we find a farmhouse (about 509 square meters, 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) organized on two floors above ground and divided internally into three residential units: — Ground floor: garage, entrance, living room with dining room and kitchen, warehouse and closets; — First floor: kitchen, 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. A short distance from the farmhouse we find a small barn (about 64 square meters, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom) converted into a home and divided into two floors: — Ground floor: living room, kitchenette and bathroom; — First floor: double bedroom. Another farmhouse (about 182 square meters, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms) is on two floors: — Ground floor: dining room, kitchen, utility room and garage; — First floor: 4 bedrooms with en-suite bathroom. The property's business center (about 760 square meters) houses the cellars and the grape processing and bottling rooms. A short distance away are a farmhouse (about 380 square meters), a woodshed (about 30 square meters) and an agricultural shed (about 420 square meters) used as a workshop and shelter for vehicles. A chapel consecrated in 946 AD. (about 35 square meters) is part of the property and is annexed to the business center and very close to the cellars, a common arrangement in past centuries (from the Middle Ages to about the seventeenth century) in the hope of enjoying an excellent year. Finally, a ruined complex completes the property: here we find a farmhouse (about 300 square meters) and a warehouse (about 45 square meters), both to be rebuilt. STATE AND FINISHES The complex, of considerable size, needs a total restructuring which would also allow to restore various rooms to their original form, often remodeled in shapes very distant from the originals. The buildings have all the typical features of Tuscan countryside buildings: wooden beams, original terracotta floors, engraved stone fireplaces, stone cornices and brick arches. Particular mention should be made of the noble chapel, still consecrated, which is part of the property. Inside, the structure has a single nave structure, with the altar on the terminal section below a cross vault and a frame in pietra serena. The tower and the Ghibelline battlements on it are later additions (typically in neo-Gothic style), built in an attempt to give the villa a more medieval appearance than the original. EXTERIOR The nuclei of the property are surrounded by 115 hectares of land divided between vineyards (8.0 ha), olive grove (3.2 ha), arable land (75.6 ha), pasture (4.7 ha), mixed forest (4, 1 ha), coppice (11.3 ha) and garden (8.1 ha). The vineyards are divided into Chianti DOCG (5.0 ha) and Rosso Toscano IGT (3.0 ha). The property also includes a large hunting reserve (70 ha) which covers arable land, pasture, vineyards and woods in variable parts in the province of Florence alone. There is also the possibility of creating a reserve for white truffle (Tuber magnatum), black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) and hooked truffle (Tuber uncinatum). Given its past (and potentially future) agritourism destination, the property also has two beautiful swimming pools: the first a short distance from the sixteenth-century villa (15 × 7 m), the other not far from the nucleus with farmhouse and barn (14 × 5 m).
