Ancient farmhouse to be restored with plot of land and olive grove
Rolling Hills estate agents, in cooperation with architect Massimo Zanelli, propose a project whose aim is the total reinterpretation of an ancient farmhouse located on top of a hill, a few kilometres from Lucignano, which is one of the best-preserved medieval villages in the province of Arezzo. Current State: At present, the property is composed of a 200 sq.m. Ancient farmhouse to be restored. This irregular L-shaped building is arranged over two floors and it includes 3 annexes (additional 110 sq. M) and 1.5 ha of plot with olive grove. Location: The edifice sits in an elevated, secluded and panoramic position. It is just 3 km from the nearest town. Thanks to its strategic position (just 5 km from Siena-Perugia highway entrance and 15 km from two toll road entrances) it is very easy to reach several town within 30 km: Montepulciano (25 km), Pienza (32 km), Cortona (20 km), Siena (35 km) and Castiglion Fiorentino (20 km), The Concept proposes a contemporary reinterpretation of the building, which is currently diachronic, in other words, it is a mass of piecemeal interventions performed during different and recognisable periods. The project tries to preserve and increase the value of the most ancient parts of the building, but it also tries to avoid superfluous components, opting for the use of contemporary elements that can support wide glass walls and introduce new materials that harmonize with the surrounding landscape. The interior spaces will be completely reorganized in a more functional manner, preferring wide and bright rooms. Three wide bedrooms with en suite bathroom will be placed on the First Floor, while the entire living area will be on the Ground Floor. The operation also includes the reorganisation of the outdoor space, the construction of a swimming pool in the South-West side and the demolition of the 3 annexes in order to build an outhouse. The estimated total cost is between ? 1000000, 00 and ? 1200000, 00, purchase included. The high final price variability is mainly due to the discretion left to the client, who can agree with the architect on the materials and the intervention strategies. In any case, estimates that are more detailed will be done if a real interest is shown.
