Borgo Rosa Antico is an original, unparalleled gem. The estate consists of three core elements spread out over almost 300 hectares of unspoiled land. A few kilometres southwest of Florence, the property lies in a pristine area that is private yet still connected with the city.
Encapsulated by vineyards and olive trees, this estate provides the ideal atmosphere to house families who love to enjoy the countryside and quality wine together. However, the home could just as easily be transformed into an overnight accommodation hotel for guests to stay and take in the country air.
The estate consists of the main hamlet, whose origins date back to the 14th century, measuring approximately 5,000 sqm in addition to other farmhouses detached from the central core that require a little cosmetic touchup. These include a former furnace perfect for conversion and use as a farm centre, all totalling about 4,000 sqm.
The surrounding land spans about 300 hectares, 70 hectares of which are vineyards, along with 80 hectares of arable land, and a grove of 8,000 olive trees. The lush land is very suitable for wine production, so it is possible to easily garner the attention of wine producers who may want to rent out the vineyards.
The main borgo, protected by the tree-lined avenue from which it is accessed, consists of several buildings (including the main villa) all needing some refreshing and modernization, however, still in great condition.
First is the wine-making cellar, which constitutes the heart of the hamlet’s production. On the upper floor is an apartment where the current owners presently reside.
The Tower building, which is partly used as offices and partly divided into 5 apartments of various sizes, is rented to tourists. These units are in great condition and have been touched up, preserving the classic elements of the rustic Tuscan style (terra cotta floors, stone elements in pietra serena, ceilings with exposed beams).
The heart of the complex is the Main Villa, which dates back to the 19th century. It spans about 1,000 sqm and is nicely distributed onto 3 levels. On the ground floor, we find a large and luminous triple reception hall with a fireplace, a bedroom with a bathroom, and the kitchen which leads into the “hunting hall.” This hall is equipped with an immense fireplace and was used as a recreational area for the inhabitants of the hamlet for many years. On the first floor, we find a spacious hallway room furnished with a massive billiard table which faces the doors to the sleeping area containing 6 total rooms with bathrooms featuring unique, original vaulted ceilings. Finally on the basement level is the cellar which is ideal for wine production.
Comprising 3 bedrooms is the Caretaker’s House with picturesque views, bordering the central core near the two beautiful swimming pools. This house contains 3 bedrooms.
This astounding estate encompasses the vast land that goes beyond the property outlined by the gates as well. This land contains multiple residential units in need of some cosmetic touch-ups. These include the refurbished barn, which is used for tourist rentals and enjoys scenic views and its own swimming pool. It is located on the other side of the road that separates the central village from the property.
The Palazzina, which is divided into apartments, some belonging to the estate and some not, is located near one of the entrance gates.
The Podere, located in a more secluded yet equally beautiful area, consists of three farmhouses to be renovated. Beautiful views of the surrounding hills can be taken in from here.
The former Furnace, once a hunting lodge, consists of three buildings totalling approximately 1,800 sqm that given its convenient location near the village, could become the new centre for farm production. It is near a house with a barn of about 600 sqm.
An additional farm totalling 1,100 sqm comprising a farmhouse and barn, located near the road connecting to the village.
The estate, which recently became organic, currently produces around 70,000 bottles of wine on a yearly basis. However, given the proportion of the vineyards, it has the potential to produce around 450,000 bottles per year.
This timeless estate is full of distinct and unique elements that showcase its prominence. The breathtaking views, and the concealed yet convenient location given its proximity to main roads leading to Florence. The original architectural and decorative elements preserve the authenticity and charm of the main villa and the apartments, adding to the great potential this property has for profitability.
