Convento Il Chiostro

Nestled into the hillside at an altitude of 350 metres one finds this majestic Tuscan residence. Formerly a convent, dating back over four hundred years, this wonderful structure boasts impressive state rooms, Italianate gardens and vaulted cloisters from which the breath-taking views can be enjoyed.

 

The House

In total there are approximately 2300 sqm of floor area of which the north wing has been restored into a principle residence with two guest/staff apartments. To the south wing and lower ground floor one finds potential to create further accommodation, entertaining rooms and/or the possibility of a separate residence.

 

On the ground floor of the property one finds the central state room, currently used as a living room, with panoramic balcony and access to the cloister. The ceiling and walls of this room have decorative wall and ceiling painting dating back several hundred years which have been maintained in excellent condition. Leading off this room is a dining room, kitchen and the corridor which leads to the separate studies, master bedroom suite and guest rooms. On this floor one also finds the original chapel and games room, which similarly to the master bedroom and study, have access onto the cloisters.

 

On the first floor one finds a guest apartment and a staff apartment, both providing spacious accommodation and potential to modernise and add bathrooms.

 

On lower ground floor of the convent one finds extensive rooms which have been part-restored. The layout with high ceilings, open plan rooms, gents and ladies wc’s and provision of catering areas were planned for events and weddings. These spaces would also lend themselves to further accommodation or indeed spa facilities.

 

The south wing of the convent is unrestored with approximately 200 sqm which could be converted into a separate residence with independent access or reunited with the core of the convent.

 

Garden and Land

The impressive vaulted cloisters of the property open onto a beautifully maintained Italianate garden with an original functioning fountain as the centre-piece. Natural spring water rises from the fountain providing a charming basin for a summer dip. A swimming pool however could also be added should one wish to the lower lawn or the walled garden to the south.  Surrounding the Tuscan residence there are 9.5 hectares of land of which 2.5 hectares are olive groves with the rest being mainly woodland. A helipad could also be added should one wish.

 

Location

The property is located in a quiet hillside position accessed via Tuscan white road. A range of services are found under 10 minutes from the property and central Florence and its airport can be reached in 20 minutes.
