Magnificent 500-acre estate with an aristocratic 1500s mansion, a farmstead, vineyards and prestigious winery, for sale in San Miniato, Pisa. On the top of a hill in the heart of Tuscany, halfway between Florence and Pisa, on the Via Francigena, stood one of the many fortified medieval castles and a pilgrim's resting place for several centuries. In the late 1500s the original tower was transformed and incorporated into an elegant aristocratic villa with farm and farmhouses. A long avenue of cypress trees leads to the villa with a main living area on three levels, recently renovated with five bedrooms, a double-arched reception room, high ceilings with exposed wooden beams, original stone fireplaces, and every window present enchanting views of the park and the countryside. From here the gaze sweeps far away, on one side to San Gimignano and Volterra, on the other to Montecatini Terme, while in front, beyond the hills, up to the sea. Attached to the villa is farmstead with guest apartments, various rooms for farming use and a tasting room in perfect rustic Tuscan style with a panoramic terrace. The wine cellar is the beating heart of the estate, perfectly equipped and with an ancient history handed down since 1508 and still producing over 200,000 bottles a year including Chianti Docg, Vinsanto del Chianti Doc, IGT Toscana Rosso, IGT Toscana Bianco, Vermentino, Rosato, Grappa di Chianti. Artesian wells and a private lake surrounded by woods provide water supply for irrigation and for a possible swimming pool. The estate is completed by additional farmhouses and outbuildings to be recovered and transformed into agritourism hospitality owing already an agricultural development plan approved by local authorities for a total surface up to 5.000 square meters/53819 sq ft.
