The Cypress Mansion, Chianti DOCG vineyards, Firenze – Tuscany

17th-century mansion with chapel, 160-acre organic farmstead with Chianti DOCG vineyards, olive groves, winery and oil mill for sale in Florence. Along the Chianti Colli Fiorentini route on the outskirts of Florence, just 15 minutes away, I Cipressi is a historical 160-acre/65-hectare estate lying on three hills with Chianti DOCG Colli Fiorentini appellation vineyards, olive groves, and a scenic cypress-lined driveway leading to the heart of the property. Here a classic 17th-century mansion with private chapel dominates open and commanding views and is coupled to the old farm estate with country-style homes, a fully equipped winery facility and an oil mill. The vineyards cover 18 hectares, mainly Chianti DOCG Colli Fiorentini appellation and cultivated with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, while 36 hectares are planted with 12000 olive trees with varieties of frantoio, leccino, moraiolo and pendolino. The farm is 100 percent certified organic and boasts an in-house winery and oil mill that allow production to be tracked from the land to final packaging. The manor house, built in the early 1600s and enlarged in the 1800s, retains its glamour elements with plastered facades, stone decorations and frames, a portico with four columns, and a romantic Italian-style garden. The interiors offer majestic over 4-meter-high ceilings with exposed wooden beams, a large foyer with central travertine staircase and wrought-iron balustrade, a main reception room with a stone fireplace, arches, a private chapel dating back the 1700s, five double bedrooms on the first floor with great possibilities for additional rooms to be converted. With a separate entrance on the north side of the building, a three-bedroom two-story residence, today used as the guardian’s house. The internal courtyard leads to an old "horseshoe" shaped farmhouse, with both stone and plastered facades, partly upgraded for tourist hospitality with four holiday apartments refurbished in traditional rustic Tuscan style. The east side of the farmhouse is the farm center featuring a fully equipped wine making facility and cellar, an oil mill, a sales shop and several rooms for storage and warehouse use with an approved project for conversion into six additional apartments. A courtyard area in front of the farmhouse has driveways and maneuvering areas suitable for agricultural and transport vehicles, and leads to additional buildings with an oil mill premise, a stone barn for storage use, a second annex for warehouse use and, slightly detached, a single garage building. Prestigious Renaissance elements make this unique historical heritage a glamour 17th-century mansion paired with a superb production of awarded Chianti wine and evo oil, in a quiet and reserved position, to be lived in multiple ways both as a luxury board residence for successful ceremonies and receptions, as a country holiday retreat and host tourists for their vacations in the heart of Tuscany, or as a private mansion to enjoy with family and friends, only 4 miles from Florence and a few minutes from all services.
