This beautiful property was once a Convent with a working farm and has been in the same family for over 40 years. The setting is private and offers superb, unspoilt views of the glorious surrounding countryside with ca. 5 hectares of garden and land including woodland, olive groves and a small vineyard. The property has been added to over the centuries to provide a main house, a large separate apartment, 2 small outbuildings and a 2 storey barn to restore. The house itself also requires some updating.
The main house measuring ca. 440 sq m has an entrance hall with original stone door surrounds, 3 reception rooms with vaulted ceilings and doors onto the covered dining terrace. Small "bellvue" room. Dining room with stairs down to the wine cellar, laundry room and boiler room. Large kitchen and pantry, cloakroom/WC.
Stone stairs lead from the ground floor to the first floor which consists of: Master bedroom with dressing room and bathroom with south-facing terrace. 3 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is unrestored attic space.
The large first floor apartment measuring ca.130 sq m has seperate external stairs and could easily be connected back to the first floor of the main house. It is thus composed: Sitting room, fully equipped kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, thereby increasing the potential number of bedrooms to 7.

A further 5 ground floor rooms including a loggia have been left in their original state and could become further accommodation. Originally these were agricultural space for the production of olive oil.
There is a barn on 2 floors of ca. 140 sq m in need of restoration currently used as a garage and storerooms for the olive oil production.
The property is accessed via two entrances one of which is on a quiet country lane which runs from the village of San Gersole' to Grassina.
The house has a beautiful approach through its own olive groves. The house and barn are set around a paved courtyard and a door leads through to a hidden walled garden with amazing views.
