Description

Historic villa in the heart of the chianti region, San Casciano Val di Pesa, Florence, Tuscany

MDI_A546

This historic villa is a significant testimony to the area’s historic heritage, as it has been of fundamental importance in numerous battles between Florence and Siena. It has gone through many transformations, from its original purpose, that of a military watch tower founded in 1100c, to a converted convent. Many influential figures have found solace in the property, Leonardo da Vinci being one of the most famous.

The current owners purchased the property in 1983 and have since undertaken extensive and meticulous restoration work converting the villa into a house with workshop.

The surface area covers 1240 sqm. with 5 bedrooms, spacious living-sitting rooms, 2 lovely kitchens, a dining room, a terrace with breathtaking views over the countryside, 4 bathrooms, the owner’s atelier, and several rooms to restore what could offer extra accommodation and bedrooms. Traditional features include: elegant interior arches, terracotta flooring, exposed brick, and stone internal walls.

A traditional porch built in 1400 offers a lovely covered outdoor space in which to enjoy ‘al fresco’ dining or the stunning views. A wood oven dating back to 1500 is still functional and perfect to prepare meals. 9500 square meters of private land complete this fantastic property with approximately 150 olive trees, a large oak olive press offers the owner the possibility to produce olive oil.
