The Belvedere estate is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse with swimming pool and outbuildings set in a sought after location. The estate is perched on a hilltop with lovely views out over the surrounding countryside and is less than 3 km from the medieval hilltop town of Anghiari, which dates back to the Roman times and became of significant strategic importance during the medieval period. Anghiari is located 429 m above sea level, in eastern Tuscany, close to the borders with Umbria and Marche making it an ideal location from which to explore central Italy and beyond.
Anghiari was also where the famous Battle of Anghiari took place on 29th June 1440 between the Milanese troops and the coalition of Florentine, Venetian and Papal troops. The battle was later depicted by none other than Leonardo da Vinci, probably on one of the main walls of the Hall of the 500 in Florence’s town hall, only to be painted over by another great maestro, Giorgio Vasari and to this day mystery still surrounds Leonardo’s painting, which, for this reason, is also known as the “Lost Leonardo”.
The Belvedere estate is made up of Casale Belvedere (the farmhouse) and two traditional stone outbuildings, a double height tobacco barn and the stables for a total of approx. 610 sq m.
Casale Belvedere is currently set out as 2 independent properties as follows:
Set out over 3 floors (including the attic) for a total of approx. 265 sq m, as follows:
Set out over 3 floors (including the attic) for a total of approx. 175 sq m, as follows:
The tobacco barn is approx. 25 sq m while the stables are approx. 75 sq m. The buildings are set out so that they surround the yard dominated by a lovely tree in the centre.
The old stables, which are currently used as a green house, could easily be transformed into an independent apartment should one so desire.
The 4 x 7 m swimming pool is nestled away behind the tobacco barn and offers beautiful panoramic views out over the local countryside with Anghiari in the distance.
The property is in need of some work, especially in the larger of the two houses but could be transformed into something truly spectacular.
The estate is surrounded by approx. 36,000 sq m of land, ideal for a small vineyard and olive grove.
Access to the property is via tarmac road making it very comfortable and quick to access without having to drive up winding, dusty, white roads in the summer months.
The Belvedere Estate is a rare opportunity to buy a large property in close proximity to town and with excellent access.
