ITALY, TUSCANY, FLORENCE, BARBERINO DI MUGELLO
Delightful typical Tuscan stone hamlet of 660 sqm, to partially restore, with land of 8.4 hectares including 6 ha of olive groves in the heart of the Tuscan countryside near Barberino di Mugello.
The typical hamlet consists of several buildings, most of which are in need of renovation.
The main house of about 220 sqm is currently inhabited by the owner and is on three levels. It is accessed by external stairs and has on the second floor a double living room with a typical working fireplace, kitchen diner, a bedroom and a bathroom.
The stone staircase dating back to the 1800s leads to the second floor hosting an additional living room and the sleeping area consisting of a loft bedroom, a bathroom and another bedroom with walk-in closet and en suite bathroom.
The ground floor of no less than 180 sqm, houses the cellar and the old stables to be renovated and used as desired, for example, as a tavern (cellar dining/entertaining room).
Another small house has on the second floor an apartment of about 60 sqm which is rented out, and on the ground floor a space of about 20 sqm used as a cheese factory for the owner’s production.
A warehouse of about 54 sqm has been used as a workshop but is in need of renovation, and a large barn of about 75 sqm on the ground floor and 45 sqm in the basement is also in need of renovation. It is completed by a shed of about 36 sqm used for tool storage.
The property is set in land of about 8.4 hectares including 6 ha of olive grove with 120 olive trees producing excellent Tuscan olive oil.
A pizza or bread oven is available in addition to numerous outdoor areas and corners that, if organised well, can provide pleasant moments of relaxation and tranquility in the green countryside.
Condition and finishes
The main house was carefully restored in the 1990s, preserving the original features of traditional Tuscan style such as the chestnut wood beams that have been maintained and the original terracotta floor. The kitchen has tiles hand made by local artisans and the roof has been redone with insulation.
The whole property is perfect for a large family who wishes to live or spend vacations in the beautiful Tuscan countryside but is also ideal to be transformed into a tourist rental business of a certain level.
The property is situated in a great location, off the main roads, with a beautiful view of the valley and at the same time only 4 km from the town of Barberino di Mugello with all the main services.
