Two historic hamlets for restoration in the heart of the Chianti country near Florence. These 2 hamlets or “borghi” date back to the 13th century and are located on what is known as the “Terrazza del Chianti” in the Comune of San Casciano Val di Pesa surrounded by Chianti Classico vineyards, productive olive groves and woodland. Nearby are some of the best known Italian and international wine producing estates: Tignanello degli Antinori, Castello di Gabbiano (Fosters’ Group), Villa Branca, Castello di Vicchiomaggio and others. There are panoramic views towards Impruneta and Florence itself. The larger of the 2 hamlets, known as Poppiano, is a large and complex structure. It incorporates a (deconsecrated) church and was once a monastery. With an existing gross built area of 1267 sq.m. it offers the opportunity to develop between 6 and 10 luxurious apartments. The most interesting feature of the second hamlet, known as Alpea, is the well preserved Longobard tower. This hamlet has an existing built area (gross) of 940 sq.m. distributed between 3 independent structures and various outbuildings. The 2 hamlets are about 300 metres apart, and connected by an existing estate road. They are offered for sale either separately or as a single lot. Each of these hamlets is being offered with nearly 10 Hectares (25 acres) of immediately surrounding land, made up approximately as follows: 4/5 Ha. of productive Chianti Classico vineyards (the neighbouring estate, the current owners of these properties, would be willing to continue managing the vineyards if required), 3/4 Ha. of olive groves and 1/2 Ha. of woods. Mains electricity is connected and water supply is currently from private wells. Florence and its airport are 10 kms away by road and Pisa airport with European and intercontinental connections can be reached in about 45 minutes. These properties represent one of the few remaining high end investment opportunities still available in Tuscany. Please contact us for further information and prices.
