                    [post_content] => Approximately 30 kilometers from Florence, you will find this property with many multifunctional features.

It is currently used as an accommodation facility for small selected groups of guests, or as a Villa rental business offering hotel services with the privacy of an independent Villa to pre-established groups of friends, relatives and families.

 

The property has everything it takes to be updated also for other functions, whether they are:
  • typically residential property,
  • holiday House
  • residence for large families,
  or property for commercial purposes such as:
  • reception structure typical of medium-high level B&B,
  • educational farm
  And again, the property would be a perfect solution for the creation of a Sports Facility, exploiting the potential of the 6 tennis courts currently not usable.     The buildings have the typical architectural features of the 1970s with 1160 square meters of buildings with the latest renovations dating back to 2010 and 2014.   The layout of the living areas is on two levels. Ground floor with:
  • 5 bedrooms
  • 12 bathrooms
  • large internal halls
  • professional kitchen
  Slightly underground floor with spaces currently dedicated to warehouses. With heights of 280 cm, these spaces could be converted into:
  •  Spa
  •  gym
  •  wellness room
  •  cinema room
  •  recording studio 
  •  play-room
  •  professional cellar
 
  • The spaces are such that they can be restored, creating useful areas for small/medium independent suites with terraces with loggias.
    Outdoor spaces. The enchanting location of the Tuscan hills all around and the large outdoor spaces make this property ideal for events, private parties and receptions:
  • 2 hectares of enclosed land with illuminated and irrigated garden
  • Swimming pool with 300 square meters of water with a depth of up to 3 meters: probably the largest private infinity pool in Tuscany, in reinforced concrete with a white resin bottom
  • Synthetic grass tennis court
  • Underground hydro massage tub.
The large car park - 100 parking spaces - has more than enough space to even become a heliport.     Why invest in this property. It is a more unique than rare opportunity to invest in an opportunity full of multiple solutions. In addition to having the characteristics that make it an enchanting residential housing solution or an elegant accommodation facility, the property has in fact included in its cadastral plans 6 tennis courts that have been not used for a rather long time but can be restored without the need for specific authorizations. It could be a unique opportunity to develop an exclusive Tennis Sports Center to train sportsmen from all over the world in the unique setting of the Chianti hills near Florence.     Logistics.  Another winning aspect of this property is its position from a logistical point of view. Services and transport are comfortable and efficient. The highway to Florence, Roma, and Milan is about 4 kilometers away. Florence can also be reached along pleasant state and municipal roads that cross the most typical of the Tuscan countryside with cypresses, vines, and olive trees. There is also a small and convenient train station that will allow you to arrive in the center of Florence in approximately 25 minutes.   Distance from major cities and airports.

Centuries have seen it evolve from a humble farmhouse to a hunting lodge for a noble family of Florence, and then again in a Convent of Nuns, up to the current configuration. In 2011 works of renovation started, and the farmhouse now maintains the original characteristic elements. The technical and structural innovations make it possible to best harmonize its past with the comforts and conveniences of contemporary technologies. Today the owner runs the farmhouse in a rather multifunctional way: it's his private home, but it is also a Bed & Breakfast for extensive periods of the year, with a restaurant open to the public for a few days of the week and reserved for private events.     Interiors. The internal surface is 434 square meters spread over three levels.   Ground floor:

The refurbishment of the interiors shows high-quality materials: sandblasted porcelain stoneware floors in a wood-like style, solid chestnut fire doors, pipes, and high-level thermo-sanitary systems.     Outdoor. Its position in the hills, 470 meters above sea level, allows an incomparable view of the Valdarno valley, dotted with small villages set in a typically Tuscan countryside adorned with cypresses and vast plots of vineyards and olive trees. The property's exposure to the south and the protection to the north of the mountainous relief of Pratomagno make the climate of the place dry and mild in winter and cool in summer, constantly caressed by a soft breeze. The property includes 1740 square meters of the courtyard and surrounding land on several levels, connected by comfortable stone stairs that welcome a lovely garden and a vegetable garden. There are fruit trees and fine trees on the south side with a lovely bio-pool with natural water, equipped with a natural Phyto-purification system, without chemicals or chlorine. It's possible to convert the system into a chlorine or polyphosphates system. This whole area is set in a solarium, sheltered from the wind. There is also a small bowling green located in a secluded space in the garden.   The property has two car parking areas: on the upper level for 4-5 cars, on the lower level, it has an access ramp where it is possible to park another three cars.   Technical equipment. The entire property is eco-sustainable and suitable for modern energy and water harvesting systems: - Photovoltaic panels for the use of 7 kW / h and resale the difference in energy produced to the GSE interchange system. - Solar thermal panels for an average production of 500 liters of hot water. - Rainwater recovery tanks for a total of 60 cubic meters with a system connected to the toilet and garden irrigation.

Re-waterproofing in resin of the stone/brick and similar-stone Tuscan stone facades and recovery of the original stones to finish the splendid terrace overlooking the valley. The Re-pavement of the terrace with a natural conveyance of rainwater towards a single collection grid, such that even in the event of thunderstorms and storms, the deck returns dry in a short time.     Why buying this property. There are many reasons for investing in this property. First of all, it is in tune with the current demand for properties outside the cities, in safe locations, and with large and multifunctional spaces. This farmhouse has just that: an excellent geographical location near Florence, a hillside location with a favorable climate all year round, and proximity to villages and towns that guarantee optimal logistics. For those looking for a healthier standard of living, retiring, or relocating in Tuscany in total privacy, this farmhouse can be the ideal situation. Here you can also continue, if you wish, the management of a small accommodation business with several rooms suitable for a limited number of guests, or the organization of a lovely "educational farm" with "light" and not too stressful management. The rest will be done by the surrounding lands, with their precious vineyards and olive groves, the sunsets and fairytale night landscapes, the silence and stillness of the surrounding nature.   Here you can breathe the density of the centuries-old history of the places: originally, this area was a peasant cottage, on whose square they used to beat the wheat and in whose large oven they used to bake bread for families of the whole area. Later, it became the hunting lodge of a noble family from Florence. Then again, it became a convent of the Sisters of Nevers  with a chapel still visible today in one of the contemporary rooms of the farmhouse. Add to all this a touch of "magic and mystery" given by the singular phenomenon of the almond tree that blooms in January, when sometimes, only for a few days, the snow  covers the surrounding nature. The event can come from the particular microclimate that develops in this corner of the hill where the farmhouse is or, if you prefer, from the mystical and spiritual aura that permeates the place. This farmhouse looks like an ideal place, a point of arrival for those who want to stop and live permanently here.     Logistics.  The property is in the Municipality of Reggello. The villa is in a privileged geographical position. The famous Strada del Setteponti built in the Medici era connects Florence with the Valdarno villages, a UNESCO heritage site.

What remains of the original medieval historic center is now incorporated into the bell tower of the church of Santa Maria—rebuilt in the 19th century on top of the old medieval building. Today it includes what was once the tower of the castle destroyed several times. As you stroll through the quiet streets, you will immediately feel like you are in another era. If you follow the paved road that connects the two parts of the city, you will come across small shops and artisan workshops with works and artifacts by local artists.

Some have become known worldwide, such as the Butcher Cecchini, a historic family of butchers, a meeting point for locals and tourists searching for fine authentic meats and Beefsteaks!   A trip to Chianti cannot be from a stop in Panzano, perhaps at specific times of the week and year. Every Sunday until 1 pm, there is the open market, where you can buy flowers and plants, fruit, cheeses, vegetables, roast chicken, clothes, and various objects, especially from the kitchen.

It is currently used as an accommodation facility for small selected groups of guests, or as a Villa rental business offering hotel services with the privacy of an independent Villa to pre-established groups of friends, relatives and families.   The property has everything it takes to be updated also for other functions, whether they are:
  • typically residential property,
  • holiday House
  • residence for large families,
  or property for commercial purposes such as:
  • reception structure typical of medium-high level B&B,
  • educational farm
  And again, the property would be a perfect solution for the creation of a Sports Facility, exploiting the potential of the 6 tennis courts currently not usable.     The buildings have the typical architectural features of the 1970s with 1160 square meters of buildings with the latest renovations dating back to 2010 and 2014.   The layout of the living areas is on two levels. Ground floor with:
  • 5 bedrooms
  • 12 bathrooms
  • large internal halls
  • professional kitchen
  Slightly underground floor with spaces currently dedicated to warehouses. With heights of 280 cm, these spaces could be converted into:
  •  Spa
  •  gym
  •  wellness room
  •  cinema room
  •  recording studio 
  •  play-room
  •  professional cellar
 
  • The spaces are such that they can be restored, creating useful areas for small/medium independent suites with terraces with loggias.
    Outdoor spaces. The enchanting location of the Tuscan hills all around and the large outdoor spaces make this property ideal for events, private parties and receptions:
  • 2 hectares of enclosed land with illuminated and irrigated garden
  • Swimming pool with 300 square meters of water with a depth of up to 3 meters: probably the largest private infinity pool in Tuscany, in reinforced concrete with a white resin bottom
  • Synthetic grass tennis court
  • Underground hydro massage tub.
The large car park - 100 parking spaces - has more than enough space to even become a heliport.     Why invest in this property. It is a more unique than rare opportunity to invest in an opportunity full of multiple solutions. In addition to having the characteristics that make it an enchanting residential housing solution or an elegant accommodation facility, the property has in fact included in its cadastral plans 6 tennis courts that have been not used for a rather long time but can be restored without the need for specific authorizations. It could be a unique opportunity to develop an exclusive Tennis Sports Center to train sportsmen from all over the world in the unique setting of the Chianti hills near Florence.     Logistics.  Another winning aspect of this property is its position from a logistical point of view. Services and transport are comfortable and efficient. The highway to Florence, Roma, and Milan is about 4 kilometers away. Florence can also be reached along pleasant state and municipal roads that cross the most typical of the Tuscan countryside with cypresses, vines, and olive trees. There is also a small and convenient train station that will allow you to arrive in the center of Florence in approximately 25 minutes.   Distance from major cities and airports.
