ITALY, TUSCANY, SIENA, BUONCONVENTO
Farm in Buonconvento with breathtaking views, consisting of a main farmhouse on two levels plus outbuildings and land of about 17 hectares in one piece, with various crops.
The farm consists of several buildings, the main one being a farmhouse dating back to the 1700s on two levels, registered in the historical Leopoldine registry and measuring about 500 sqm. On the ground floor there is the entrance leading to the cellars and the local service bathroom for the use of the farm. There is also a laundry and a lemon house adjacent to the structure of about 30 sqm.
On the first floor, a superb loggia with a view of Siena, living area, with high ceilings with beams, fireplace and antique terracotta floors. Continuing there is the large kitchen with exit to the loggia. A corridor divides the living area from the sleeping area, where there are 4 bedrooms, and a bathroom.
Next to the main structure there is a former pigsty now used as a garden tool shed. The agricultural outbuildings are a former sheep pen, today a machinery shed of about 400 sqm and a former barn to be renovated.
The farm is surrounded by land for about 17 hectares, from the top of the hill descending to the valley in a single body. Crops to date are arable crops and olive groves in addition to a small plot of woodland.
There is also a water collection lake from which water is taken by a pump leading to an underground cistern. There is the possibility of planting DOC Orcia vineyards.
State and finishes
The farmhouse, on the living floor, is in good condition, ready to be used. The ground floor can be exploited for additional living space, to date it retains the typical arches and internal stone walls.
To be renovated is the former barn that can have an agricultural use but also could be a residential annex.
The property has a new autonomous sewage system, plus water supply from the lake and a newly replaced boiler.
The complex lends itself perfectly to continue the agricultural activity, to date minimally exploited and therefore with great room for growth, also in terms of wine production, given the presence of structures which could be restored and used as wine cellars.
