Property description

This former 11th century monastery is located amidst the beautiful hilly landscape of Tuscany near San Gimignano between Siena and Florence. The first historical records date back to 1075, when the property was used as a monastery by the Vallumbrosian monks and Benedictine nuns. In 1148, Pope Eugene Iii visited the monastery, blessed it and took it under his personal protection. Later, the monastery was placed under the protection of San Gimignano. The monastery was abandoned towards the middle of the 14th century and the historical records laid down at San Gimignano came to an end. It is believed that in the further course of history the nobility took possession of it, followed later by farmers and vineyard owners. Over the years, the current owners uncovered the foundations of a mill and a Romanesque church. Parts of the church go back to the 9th century, archaeological findings on the property date back to 1000 B.C. Today the property consists of four residential units grouped around an inner courtyard of about 100 m². A covered dining area offers a wide view of the surrounding Tuscan countryside as far as the Apennines. The total living and utility area is approx. 560 m², which is currently divided into four flats, a small museum as well as several cellars and storage rooms. All apartments have a living area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. It would be possible to merge the flats and parts of the building into a modern living space.A special feature is the approx. 11 m high tower, which offers several rooms located one above the other and a small fireplace room on the top floor with magnificent views of the Tuscan hills. Approx. 6,870 m² of land with mature trees and the lovely courtyard offer many opportunities for outdoor living. The property can be used as a noble family residence, but also offers enough space for families with friends and is also ideal for renting out as a whole or in parts. Both the location and the property itself are nothing less than unique.ATTENTION: Only the bare ownership is for sale, one of the 4 flats must remain at the disposal of the 87 year old owner as a right of residence. Further details can be negotiated in case of interest. For this reason the selling price of this extraordinary property has been considerably reduced.
