Stone farmhouse with breathtaking views with land, for sale in San Casciano Val di Pesa, Florence. The farmhouse is surrounded by one hectare (2.5 acres) of olive grove and grove. The tower was founded in 1100 as a military watchtower, in a strategic point overlooking the valley of the river Pesa, was of fundamental importance in the many battles between Florence and Siena. In the following centuries it was enlarged and transformed into a nunnery. There is talk of an ancient underground tunnel connecting the convent to the nearby Pieve di S.Giovanni in Sugana. It was bought in the seventeenth century by the noble Florentine family and later the Corsini princes transformed it into a farm. Even today they are appreciated: the ancient porch, the well and the oven built at the beginning of the 1400s, the elegant internal arches, an imposing oak wood press to make oil. The castle-convent dominates 360 degrees, with its 310 meters of altitude, one of the most beautiful valleys of Chianti, that of the river Pesa that crosses quietly the gentle and characteristic Tuscan hills, bordered by a relaxing and romantic walkway through woods and meadows. The noble building is made with ancient techniques, using river pebbles and is harmonized with vineyards and olive groves that surround it, all enriched by a rich fauna. We are in the ambitious land of Chianti Classico, a wine known and appreciated all over the world for its aromas and flavors. Inside you can admire an ancient portico supported by slender columns and elegant capitals in pietra serena, is a splendid living room, a large internal terrace, from which we can enjoy a breathtaking view and enchanting sunsets behind the beautiful peaks of the Apuan Alps.
In 1983 the new owners carried out a meticulous conservative restoration.

Location description

Firenze

Florence became a cultural and commercial hub, experiencing its peak in the fifteenth century, under the Signoria of Cosimo and Lorenzo de' Medici. Following Lorenzo’s death, in 1492, the Florentine Republic ceased to exist and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany was born, which lasted until the unification of Italy. The four districts of the historic centre are a good reference point amidst the architectonic and historical wonders envied worldwide. The heart of Florence is in the Santa Croce-district, where we find Piazza della Signoria, with its Palazzo Vecchio and the Galleria degli Uffizi with masterpieces by Giotto, Leonardo, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Piero della Francesca, Raffaello, Caravaggio and many more. The Vasari Corridor leads to Uffizi in Palazzo Pitti passing over the Ponte Vecchio, the city’s oldest bridge. Directions: By car: The A1, the main artery connecting North and South, has four exits at Florence. The A11 and the Firenze-Pisa-Livorno (FI-PI-LI), dual carriageway, connects Florence to the Tyrrhenian coast. By train: Florence has three main stations Firenze Santa Maria Novella, Firenze Campo di Marte, and Firenze Rifredi. Santa Maria Novella is the most important station. By plane: airport of Firenze Amerigo Vespucci.
