Casa Risani is a prestigious property located a few kilometres from Lucignano, a small village surrounded by medieval walls located in the heart of the Valdichiana. The property, in an elevated position and dominant with respect to the surroundings, consists of a main stone built farmhouse which was the residence of the farmer and two smaller buildings used for the storage of machines and farm equipment.
The property, surrounded by 5 hectares of land, is enriched by a splendid swimming pool (16 x 8 sqm) of recent construction located a short distance from the main building with a related stone outbuilding (pool house) of 43 sqm, containing a complete kitchen, a utility room, a bathroom, a dressing room as well as a beautiful covered porch (57 sqm) which is perfect to relax under.
The main building is divided into three floors with a total floor area of approximately 460 sqm, and it is surrounded by a large area of land, on which the remaining buildings (annexes) and the swimming pool are located. The main building is organised as follows:
2 covered storage rooms
3 utility rooms
caretaker's quarters: living room with kitchenette and ensuite bathroom
First floor (access through an external staircase)
bathroom with shower
Second floor (access through an internal staircase)
bathroom with shower
The property enjoys a fabulous view of the surrounding Tuscan countryside and it is surrounded by 5 hectares of land, enriched by the presence of approximately 230 olive trees and 50 fruit trees.
The existing property is accessed via a well-maintained white road.
The house, although habitable, is potentially to be renovated so to expand its possibilities through an additional volume provided for by the already approved recovery plan with consequent increase in prestige and value. The renovation project allows the construction of a main house of 8/9 bedrooms, staff accommodation and a tennis court, with great flexibility in the use of building volumes.
A renovation plan has been approved to transform the current 460 sqm building into a splendid villa using an extra volume recovered from existing agricultural buildings that will be demolished (the recovery plan allows the construction of a total volume of 1.250 sqm). The recovery project foresees a main stone building, on three floors, with 8 main bedrooms but there is the possibility to build up to 10 bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a staff accommodation area and storage rooms.
The already authorised renovation project allows, therefore, the construction of a property of 950 sqm divided as follows:
a) main house
6 bedrooms with ensuite bathroom
staff bedroom with ensuite bathroom
2 guest bathrooms
b) caretaker's house:
living room and kitchen
c) gym / fitness center
e) tennis court
Casa Risani is located close to two other properties on our website which are also for sale; Villa Lucignano (a stunningly restored Leopoldina) and Villa Batini (a cluster of buildings grouped around a main house, all to a builder's finish). All three properties have independent access and are private from each other.
