Near Borgo San Lorenzo, in the Mugello area of Tuscany,  a wonderful historic farmhouse of about 740 sqm with private church, land with forest and olive trees of 3.5 hectares – a perfect opportunity for those who want to change their life and immerse themselves in Tuscan nature, half an hour from Florence.

In the hills of Mugello, in the municipality of Borgo San Lorenzo, half an hour’s drive from magnificent Florence is this beautiful historic house with land all around.

The property is spread over several levels consisting of: triple living room with large fireplace, seven bedrooms, with high ceilings and exposed beams, six bathrooms, kitchen, large taverna used as a play area, plus outbuilding, porch and storeroom for a total of about 740 square meters.

Adjacent to the main body is a consecrated church of 35 sqm.

Looking at this group of buildings makes one think of their history. They arose as watchtowers near water sources to charge duty to the caravans that transported through Borgo San Lorenzo on muleback the slabs of salt for the old Laurentian road to the Salaiole where the salt was ground and purified and then continued on to Florence, a trade due to the Medici family.

Then, in time the property passed to the Church which created a convent with a few friars who tended to the tithe of the church and the farmers who worked those farms. In recent times it passed into a rural home where everything is maintained and cultivated in excellent condition to this day.

Condition and finishes
The property is well maintained and the systems are up to modern standards. The interior and exterior floors are clinker and pietra serena, the bathrooms are ceramic. The restored exposed solid wood beams are classic Tuscan style. The doors are made of wood.

Outdoor Spaces
The villa, where tranquility reigns, is set within a beautiful 3.5 hectare park that includes an olive grove of about 400 trees, a small orchard, woods and arable land with two springs (one seasonal and one perennial). A large parking area completes the property.

It is possible to build a swimming pool.

Potential uses
The property is perfect for a large family. It could be used either as a vacation home or for those who want to be immersed in nature.

In the green hills of Mugello, only 35 km from historic center of Florence and 95 km from Bologna, in an idyllic and quiet setting, surrounded by green mountains throughout the year. A very practical property for reaching the main services, such as airports, highway and all daily services, as well as the famous Mugello racetrack renowned for its international races.
