Historic 16th Century Italian Estate To Be Digitally Auctioned—See The Photos!

To describe the expansive and jaw-dropping estate nestled within the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside as magnificent would be an understatement.

Built amidst Europe’s economic resurgence, the property was dedicated to the cultivation of rare flowers and the manufacturing of extra virgin olive oil, leaving acre upon acre of centuries-old, terraced olive groves in its wake.

Listed for €21 million, this newly renovated, sprawling property (clocking 19.6 hectares) looks like a true modern fairy tale with manicured Italian gardens surrounding the four main villas, each of which has a private pool, along with two cottages and a caretaker’s home.

 

Restored to its former 16th-century glory, although appointed with modern day luxuries, each villa boasts soaring cathedral and coffered ceilings with exposed wooden beams, Murano glass chandeliers, and fresco-painted walls to maintain the historic grandeur and inspire a sense of majesty.

Additional features of the 12-bedroom estate include a formal dining room seating up to 26 guests, several alfresco patios for entertaining, a fully renovated poolside fitness room, a billiards room, a reading room, a private chapel, 2 tennis courts and a verdant helicopter landing area.

The estate will sell via Concierge Auctions on May 27th.
