Historical Mansion with vineyards, Vinci, Florence - Tuscany

Unique 568-acre estate boasting a 17th-century villa with chapel, medieval borgo with farm, winery, and olive oil mill for sale in Vinci, near Florence. A long history handed on by the same family for more than a thousand years, a remarkable estate set in a dominant hilly position close to Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, boasting open views as far as the Tyrrhenian sea and the city of Volterra. The estate features a medieval borgo with several stone buildings and farmhouses, a 1600s mansion with stunning frescoed reception halls, an Italian-style garden with a private chapel, a fully equipped wine cellar. The estate pride is its oil mill and an annual production of 24,000 bottles a year of fragrant evo oil, and the vineyards expertly restored and 100% organic, cultivated with Sangiovese, Syrah, Colorino, Canaiolo and Malvasia Nera vines with a yearly yield of approx. 12,500 bottles of Chianti Montalbano DOCG, along with the potential for expansion for additional vineyards. The winery was fully renovated in 2017, including new facilities and equipment and an aging cellar. The 17th-century villa is the heart of the estate, a rare example of a noble Renaissance residence featuring two towers on either side of the main facade, overlooking an Italian-style garden with Belvedere and endless views of the countryside, hills and over the mature park landscaped with secular old trees. On the ground floor, a manor hall opens onto three period receptions all decorated with a Renaissance theme, while on the second floor, the main reception boasts extraordinary evocative and beautifully preserved frescoes framing marvelous panoramic views from all windows. The room is connected to two more living area, the "Hall of Arms" with special decorations and an original marble fireplace, and to the "White Room" embellished with Renaissance elements. The villa's four bedrooms are to be rethought and reconfigured, as are the rooms on top of the towers with endless views that take the breath away. The aristocratic chapel with oratory, the lemon house, and the stables, all seventeenth-century style buildings developed around the principal residence, create charming courtyards and terraces, an ideal setting today remodeled to host ceremonies, banqueting, events, and a billiard room. The villa has undergone an extensive conservation project inclusive of the complete restoration of all facades, interior frescoes, and architectural structures. The medieval stone hamlet is mainly dedicated to the farm where the cellar building with perfectly preserved Ghibelline battlements stands out. The farmhouses have been partly recovered into offices, reception and tasting rooms, tourism apartments, and a swimming pool, while some need to be transformed into country-style villas and included in a new development plan aiming to upgrade the overall tourist hospitality capacity to some 50 bedrooms/suites in total, housing comfortably more than 100 guests. Strategically located in one of the most wanted Tuscan destinations, just half-hour from main airports, at a short drive from the jewel cities such as Siena and San Gimignano, and from the Chianti Classico regions with its castles and its long thousands year old history, traditions, and exceptional country lifestyle.
