ITALY, TUSCANY, SIENA
On the Senese hills, in a very panoramic position, there is this old-style village with several residential units immersed in the vineyards of one of the most renowned companies in the area and surrounded by spectacular views thanks to its dominant position at an altitude of 450 meters.
In the heart of Tuscany, only an hour and a half from the center of Florence, two hours from Pisa and 40 minutes by car from Siena, in the area of Gaiole in Chianti – a mecca of typical Tuscan wines. This hamlet is surrounded by greenery and vineyards and olive groves (a part of which can be purchased separately).
The village is composed of 7 different residential units in rustic style, covering a total area of about 2,200 square meters. The first construction works have been done, including the masonry works, and so a buyer has the possibility to choose all layouts, finishes and installations.
The main building of 690 sqm for residential use is on two floors; it represents the only building of ancient construction – it was an ancient monastery of minor friars – whose original architectural features have been preserved, renewing the walls and preserving their historical value.
A further 4 units of 150/180sqm each are the structures that “rotate” around the central villa and represent the new construction. One of these buildings, of smaller size – 140 sqm – could be used as a common technical room for all the units.
The last two units (of 360 and 445 sqm) located on the ground floor and the basement, have been conceived as common areas for physical activity and leisure, there is already an indoor swimming pool (also built in a rustic style) on the upper floor with the possibility of developing a fitness area and wellness area in the basement.
There is also the possibility of adding a small plot of land, adjacent to the village, with olive groves. The current owner already has a work contract in hand in order to complete the property with tourist accommodation, as originally planned.
Potential for use
Should the buyer not be interested in completing the work themselves, the current owner is available to manage all the works directly and deliver the finished structure, subject to contractual agreement.
With the advantage of completing the work based on needs and tastes, the project can be modeled according to the buyer’s ideas. It is also possible to use the use – commercial (Relais, B&B, Villas for Rent) or residential (High-luxury family villa with annexes for guests and common services).
This is a good opportunity to invest in a highly sought-after area (important families have recently made investments in the same municipality).
