An extraordinary country Villa for sale in one of Tuscany's most pictoresque and charming regions, Valdarno in Chianti.
A property dated 1200 A.D., with a manor house and various facilities on a gorgeous hilltop surrounded by its own productive vineyards and olive groves.
Ideal as a luxury home or as an agriturism resort in the middle of the countryside.
For sale or rent directly by the owners.
Casa a Rignano is surrounded by the quietness of approximately 50 acres (20 hectares) of forest and fields, with productive and mature Chianti DOCG vineyards, 600 olive trees, fruit trees (apple, pear, plums, figs, cherry and peaches), a natural spring and about 15 acres (6 hectares) of woodlands, renowned for its mushrooms and truffles, with centenary cypresses, chestnuts and oaks.
25 Kilometers (ca. 15 miles) south-east of Florence’s centre, Casa a Rignano sits on a hilltop in the river Arno Valley region.
The property is easily accessed from autostrada A1, Italy's most important highway.
Nearly a millennium of history makes this property uniquely fascinating and rich in anecdotes.
Follow how of it made its way century by century, from Mozzi's noble family’s tower-mansion in the early 1200s into today's luxury villa, passing through Vallombrosa Abbey's middle-age dependance condition and its recent historically faithful restoration.
In recent restorations (2003-2006) the manor house has been divided into four independent apartments and one service area.
The restored old granary and wine cellar along with the yet-to-be-restored two-story barn just add up to the enchanting personality this property possesses.
All of the areas are extremely comfortable and practical, presenting impressive care and refined taste of such details as restored doors, doorknobs, windows and window blinds.
