Panoramic property near San Gimignano
The property consists of a charming brick building to be restored, once used for the production and storage of wine, and is located in a fantastic position in the wonderful countryside near the medieval village of San Gimignano, one of the most authentic and iconographic places of the Tuscan countryside. The property is reached via a panoramic ridge road that passes along vineyards, olive groves, cultivated fields and typical Tuscan farms. The unmistakable skyline of the towers of San Gimignano, which can also be reached on foot from the property, is the background. The former “cantina”, framed by tall and ancient cypress trees, has an area of 411 square meters spread over two floors above ground. It has a traditional gabled roof with exposed brick masonry and is distinguished by the geometry of the openings which, positioned at regular intervals and the shape with a lowered arch architrave, give the building an unusual elegance, perhaps inspired by the preciousness of the wine that there was stored: the typical Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the oldest white wine in Tuscany. To complete the property there are 5.200 sqm of olive grove that produce excellent Tuscan extra virgin olive oil every year. The building needs to be restored and is suitable for various possibilities of use, both as commercial or tourist properties, and as a beautiful private residence to spend the holidays in complete privacy. The construction of a panoramic swimming pool is also possible.
The property is located in the central part of Tuscany, near the medieval village of San Gimignano, between Siena and Florence, close to the fast roads that allow you to easily reach the nearby world-famous historic cities such as Siena, Florence and Pisa, thus allowing to alternate moments of relaxation in the quiet of the countryside with cultural excursions. The coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea is about an hour away.
