Nestled into the hillside at an altitude of 350m one finds this majestic Tuscan residence, formerly a convent and dating back over four hundred years. This wonderful structure boasts impressive state rooms, Italianate gardens and vaulted cloisters from which the breath-taking views can be enjoyed.
In total there are approximately 2,300m2 of floor area of which the north wing has been restored into a principle residence along with two guest/staff apartments. To the south wing and lower ground floor there is the potential to create further accommodation, entertaining rooms and/or the possibility of a separate residence.
On the ground floor of the property one finds the central stateroom, currently used as a living room, with panoramic balcony and access to the cloisters. The ceiling and walls of this room have decorative wall and ceiling paintings dating back several hundred years, which have been maintained in excellent condition.
Leading off of this room is the dining room, kitchen and a corridor, which leads to the separate studies, master bedroom suite and guest rooms. On this floor one also finds the original chapel and games room, which similarly to the master bedroom and study, have access onto the cloisters.
On the first floor there is a guest apartment and a staff apartment, both providing spacious accommodation and potential to modernise and add bathrooms.
On the lower ground floor of the convent there are extensive rooms that have been partly restored. The layout with high ceilings, open plan rooms, gents and ladies toilets and provision of catering areas were planned for events and weddings. These spaces would also lend themselves to further accommodation or indeed spa facilities.
The south wing of the convent is unrestored with approximately 200m2 which could be converted into a separate residence with independent access or reunited with the core of the convent.
The impressive vaulted cloisters of the property open onto a beautifully maintained Italianate garden with an original functioning fountain as the centre-piece. Natural spring water rises from the fountain providing a charming basin for a summer dip. A swimming pool however could also be added should one wish to the lower lawn or the walled garden to the south.
Surrounding property there are approximately 9.5 hectares of land, of which 2.5 hectares are olive groves with the balance being mainly woodland. A helipad could also be added should one wish.
The property is located in a quiet hillside position and accessed via a Tuscan ‘white road’.
