If you’re living in Italian wine country, you might as well have a piece of it in your backyard. That’s what a 12-acre estate fringed with cypresses, vineyards, olive groves, and forests in prime Chianti territory offers.
Dating back to the 13th century, this Classico Renaissance villa is one of the finest examples of traditional Tuscan estates in Chianti Classico. About a 30-minute drive from Florence, the San Casciano in Val Di Pesa property has approximately 20,000 square feet of living space stretched across two luxurious private villas, three Atelier apartments, and four Fatoria Marzocco apartments. The villas’ stylish interiors were recently renovated with local craftsmen and fine Tuscan materials, giving them a quintessential Italian feel.
Once a convent for girls, the estate was also home to contemporary Dutch artist Karel Appel, who worked from his Atelier at the turn of the millennium. Evidence of Appel’s presence can be seen in his sculpture “The Horse,” which can still be found in the estate’s lavender garden. This is one of the several refined gardens and historical works of art that can be found on the property, fringed by the natural beauty of the Chianti region.
The asking price for the home is currently $19.1 million. However, the San Casciano estate is also available as two properties listed at $13 million and $5.9 million, respectively. Learn more information here.
