Description in Detail
Organic Estate is an interesting and biodynamically certified estate, found in the countryside of Arezzo, between Arezzo and Cortona, surrounded by Vineyards, Olive Groves, and Rolling Green Hills.
The estate produces Biodynamic Wines and IGP Olive Oils. Beyond this, there is a facility for accommodating agritourism with 6 apartments and a restaurant that is part of an internationally recognized BIO circuit. As well as being an interesting property and having niche wine production, Organic Estate is above all an eco-friendly and environmental lifestyle, a life change, or a consolidation for those who already live respecting nature and biodynamics.
The structure was built in the 19th century, and has been subject to various restorations over the years.
The total surface of the living areas amounts to over 1,000 m2, including the main villa and two separate buildings used as apartments for the farm.
The main house is composed of 3 stories, measuring 240 m2. The heart of the house is the living room with a large fireplace and a rustic wood burner. There’s also a kitchen with a dining area, an office, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The potential tourist reception of the property consists of 6 apartments furnished in a typical Tuscan style, with 9 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms in total. There are 2 studio apartments, 1 loft, a 2-bedroom apartment with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and 1 apartment with 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Each apartment has their own bathroom and kitchen/kitchenette and all are surrounded by the beautiful garden. The interiors are rustic and characteristic of a typical Tuscan style – ceilings with wooden beams, exposed brick and terracotta floors and arches.
There’s an area that has always been used as a restaurant, with a tasting room, and a veranda with space for up to 80 guests. A third small but beautiful and completely renovated separate room, could be made into a gym, or somewhere else to relax.
The property is surrounded by 3.71 hectares of land of which 1.9392 hectares are vineyards; of which 1.12 hectares produce Chardonnay and 0.81 hectares produce Merlot. There is also a 0.80-hectare olive grove that produces a lot of PGI olive oil. The property also has a lovely vegetable garden and courtyard. The production was certified as organic in 1994 and from 2004 the production became officially biodynamic. On the farm, there are several outbuildings and specific warehouses for production, storage, maintenance, agriculture, equipment, and of course there are restaurants.
Beyond this it’s possible to purchase further farming land, of which 3.2 hectares is vineyard (2 hectares Sangiovese; 1.2 hectares of Incrocio Manzoni) and around 5 extra hectares of active olive grove.
The estate aims to be as independent as possible in terms of energy consumption. A Solar Power System and Solar Panels were installed in 2011 which cover the most part of the energy usage, thanks to its striving efforts to be an eco-friendly estate.
Included in the sale:
All the equipment currently used in active production: tractors (n.3) + various tools and machinery for the cultivating and storage of wine and olive oil.
