A rare opportunity to acquire a spectacular Natural Riserva in a captivating and scenic area of Western Tuscany. Substantial business potential exists to exploit the abundant assets of this exceptional and expansive estate.
Idyllically located in a peaceful and tranquil valley, and nestling amidst magnificent scenery, this beautiful 57 hectare estate is untouched by the passage of time. Offered for sale for the first time in many years, estates of this importance are not usually found on the open market. Enriched with a wide variety of indigenous flora and fauna, and with a 30 hectare fully fenced central zone, this natural game reserve is abundantly stocked with wildlife, including wild boar, deer, rabbits, pheasant and partridge. In addition, there are expansive Olive groves and two old vineyards, featuring ungrafted vine stock, one of which is currently in full production. The viniculture offers an amazing opportunity to expand and develop the production, since there are further suitable planting zones within the estate. A rare mineral found in the soil gives the wine a distinctive character and flavour, and protects the stock from disease.
The estate assets also include two existing buildings of circa 375 square metres, plus one or two dilapidated agricultural structures which can be utilised within a refurbishment plan. A percentage of further habitable volume can be obtained and added to the existing, subject to approval and full planning permission. The current owner has created draft plans for a variety of development ideas.
Part of the boundary is formed by a river, and there are several small lakes and ponds within the riserva providing a good source of water for the estate. Rare orchids, fruit trees and different species of wild edible mushrooms can be found within the riserva during winter months
