This stunning historic estate for sale is on the sweet Tuscan hills just outside Florence.
This prestigious estate was once a military watchtower and has been perfectly preserved until today but its centuries-old history gives it added value. This ancient estate is on a high position, so that its battlements are high over the surrounding valley and offer a wonderful panoramic view.
This stunning castle is very close to Florence, has a stone façade, and is surrounded by 6 hectares of land; this land has been partly cultivated, while the remaining part features a forest.
The main body of this luxury estate is currently divided into six property units fit for residential use. Part of the estate, with a basement and ground floor, is used for business activities; this brings the total surface area to 1200m2.
This estate's rooms feature architectural elements and furniture with an echo to its historic value. It is, in fact, possible to admire stone vaults and fireplaces, arches, ceilings with old wooden beams, wrought iron chandeliers, and the millstones that are kept in the halls.
This dream home is truly one of its kind and offers a context which is separated from the city but also close enough to it so that you can enjoy its conveniences and reach points of interest in a very short time.
This area's art, together with its food and wine culture surround this castle for sale, which can be seen as one of the symbols of this region's strenghts.

Tuscany Florence

Florence is universally known as the city of art, thanks to its incalculable heritage of works, palaces and monuments which transform the city’s streets into an extraordinary open-air museum. The heart of Florence is Piazza della Signoria, dominated by the towering Palazzo Vecchio and the Galleria degli Uffizi. Just a few steps away, there is the Cathedral, where Brunelleschi’s superb dome is accompanied by Giotto’s bell tower and the Baptistery of St. John, with its celebrated bronze doors. 
The river Arno runs through the middle of the city which is full of beautiful villas and estates with a high historic and architectural value. The most famous of the bridges crossing the river, the Ponte Vecchio, is adorned with jewellery shops housed in small cabins attached to the bridge, a construction technique found nowhere else in the world; the Ponte Vecchio was also the only Florentine bridge to make it through the Second World War without suffering any damage. The left bank of the Arno, or the “Oltrarno”, is an area that still provides a feel, among its centuries-old crafts shops, of the Florence of yesteryear, as described by Marcello Vannucci and Vasco Pratolini.
