                    [post_content] => The property is in the street once housed the laboratory where Benvenuto Cellini created the mammoth Perseus. It is also the street where "La Pergola" is located, one of Italy's oldest and most prestigious theaters. In this location of inestimable prestige, this period building for sale comprises four levels: basement, ground floor, first, second floor, and attic.

Completely renovated in 2018, it has a structure that maintains all the historical characters of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: traditional load-bearing masonry, wooden floors, and roof. The entrance and the basement still retain the masonry brick vault.

Renovated in 2018 this beautiful period building is now destined for a comfortable and elegant accommodation facility, set right in the heart of the historic center of Florence!

  Location. It is a few steps from all the main monuments and places of interest, including Piazza del Duomo, Piazza Della Signoria, and the Uffizi Gallery, Basilica of Santa Croce. Just around the corner, there is the Jewish quarter and the Great Synagogue, and, a little further on, the lively Sant'Ambrogio market and Piazza dei Ciompi.   Above all, the building is in the core of via Della Pergola, the magnificent Theater and several testimonies of the past. To the right of the main entrance of the Teatro Della Pergola, at number 12, a plaque recalls that on the evening of March 14, 1847, Giuseppe Verdi conducted the first performance of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The Teatro Della Pergola was born in the seventeenth century thanks to the initiative of the Accademia degli Immobili, whose aims were artistic and cultural, oriented to different disciplines: music, mathematics, acting, reading, and representation of comedies.   Before becoming a splendid temple of culture, the large room housed a pulling house owned by the Arte Della Lana, one of the seven significant arts of the guilds of arts and crafts of Florence in the Renaissance period. The works of the Theater, designed by the architect Ferdinando Tacca, were started in 1656 and concluded in 1661 to host some of the celebratory events of Cosimo III's wedding with Margherita d'Orleans.   In a wooden structure, the Theater had a large stage. It exhibited three tiers of boxes supported by a large loggia, making it the first architectural example of an "Italian" theater. A series of rooms and courtyards made the environment soundproof from the neighboring streets. It could accommodate over a thousand people, housed in the boxes and in the loggia open to the stalls, where the audience sat on fixed benches and in two distinct sectors to separate the male audience from the female one. In the center of the room, there was the area reserved for the most illustrious members of the Academy.   In the nineteenth century, La Pergola expanded its activities to singing, dance, and opera, setting up high-quality programs with Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Rossini, Pacini, Ricci, etc. Since 1925, the Teatro Della Pergola has been a national monument.   There are many other points of interest in this street. At number 59, you will discover the plaque affixed to the building, reminding us that Benvenuto Cellini created Perseus in those environments and died here in 1471.   Discover San Giovanni [post_title] => An Entire Building for Sale in a Prestigious Street of Old Town Florence [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => an-entire-building-for-sale-in-a-prestigious-street-of-old-town-florence [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2021-12-21 15:52:13 [post_modified_gmt] => 2021-12-21 14:52:13 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://victoria-house.it/?post_type=estate_property&p=39726 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => estate_property [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [1] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 39631 [post_author] => 2 [post_date] => 2021-12-07 20:52:12 [post_date_gmt] => 2021-12-07 19:52:12 [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.

  • prestigious wine production that boasts the Chianti DOCG mark (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin);
  • excursions through paths to visit Medici villas and castles, ancient farms that produce high-quality wines and olive oil (La Strada Dei Vini), churches, convents, and parish churches of old memory;
  • small and fascinating museums that keep alive the testimonies of the activities and traditions of the mountains and hills (Museum of the Vine and Wine);
  • fairs and village festivals that take place at various times of the year in honor of the typical products and traditions of this land;
  • naturalistic excursions, ideal for groups of friends and family, or relieving individual retreats, walking through the quiet of the woods to reach waterfalls and springs, natural reserves such as that of Lake Falgano, capable of giving unique suggestions.
  Various historical testimonies date back to the 9th century BC, with Etruscan and Roman remains. Other evidence comes from the Middle Ages and then again from the Renaissance, which confirms settlements of monks' convents. Subsequently, the area saw a demographic expansion with the construction of farms and manor houses. Still clearly visible are the evidence of ancient architecture, such as the 11th-century Torre di Monte Bonello and its tiny village. Other testimonies come from several churches, such as the Church of Santo Stefano in Castiglioni, which displays a 14th-century pictorial table; the Church of Santa Maria a Falgano, with a gabled façade with a single entrance portal surmounted by a small eye. Also valuable is the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine ai Fossi, of medieval origin, located along the ancient mule track that connected the two different contiguous areas of the Casentino and Val di Sieve.   Logistics.

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 Teatro Della Pergola was born in the seventeenth century thanks to the initiative of the Accademia degli Immobili, whose aims were artistic and cultural, oriented to different disciplines: music, mathematics, acting, reading, and representation of comedies.   Before becoming a splendid temple of culture, the large room housed a pulling house owned by the Arte Della Lana, one of the seven significant arts of the guilds of arts and crafts of Florence in the Renaissance period. The works of the Theater, designed by the architect Ferdinando Tacca, were started in 1656 and concluded in 1661 to host some of the celebratory events of Cosimo III's wedding with Margherita d'Orleans.   In a wooden structure, the Theater had a large stage. It exhibited three tiers of boxes supported by a large loggia, making it the first architectural example of an "Italian" theater. A series of rooms and courtyards made the environment soundproof from the neighboring streets. It could accommodate over a thousand people, housed in the boxes and in the loggia open to the stalls, where the audience sat on fixed benches and in two distinct sectors to separate the male audience from the female one. In the center of the room, there was the area reserved for the most illustrious members of the Academy.   In the nineteenth century, La Pergola expanded its activities to singing, dance, and opera, setting up high-quality programs with Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Rossini, Pacini, Ricci, etc. Since 1925, the Teatro Della Pergola has been a national monument.   There are many other points of interest in this street.
