Serene Il Fossato, Florence, Italy


Offered at €1,500,000

In a secluded valley near Florence, a lovingly restored farmhouse with a central courtyard and large barn—all approached by a private two-kilometer drive—nestles among olive groves, woodland, pasture, and extensive gardens embracing a magnificent estate of 123.5 acres. The two floors of the spacious fifteenth-century main house are connected by the original external stairs, the first floor offering a loggia, large firelit living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, two baths, and a dressing room, and the ground floor comprising an office, laundry and boiler room, a cooking area, one bedroom and bath, a workshop, and garage. There is also a self-contained apartment consisting of a bedroom, bathroom, and large kitchen with fireplace. Modern amenities include satellite internet, air-conditioning, and solar panels. The two-level, 200-square-meter barn boasts a restored first floor with open living and dining room, kitchen, and bathroom, which could serve as a studio or self-catering apartment. Outside, a heated salt-water swimming pool and shaded dining area crown the radiant Tuscan refuge.
