The village of Torrita di Sena is the location of Tenuta di Petriolo, a three-story property, in Tuscany
, that dates back to the 1400s. The main building of this palatial, world-apart 15th century-built villa sets on a six-acre, park-like landscaped forest and has approximately 46,260 square feet of living space and a heated swimming pool.
There is a fully restored chapel from the 1800s, at the south wing of the estate, which the current owners use weekly to celebrate mass, and, perhaps, pray for the next owner to come calling.
There also is an additional 74-acre vineyard, where both wine and olive oil production takes place, making it perhaps one of the most elaborate home-based business opportunities in the world. The registered vineyard produces 110,000 bottles of wine annually from three types of grapes. The expansive cellars are equipped with state-of-the-art systems for the production, aging and bottling of wine, according to the property’s listing brokerage, Keller Williams NYC.
"This exquisite property is ideal for a buyer who appreciates the beauty of Tuscany and its vineyards," said Richard Tayar, director of Italian property services for Keller Williams NYC. "The painstaking restoration of the villa, including the installation of modern conveniences, makes it the perfect home away from home."
There is a spacious entrance, an eat-in kitchen with a large fireplace, a formal dining room, two living rooms, and an office on the first floor. Furnishings in the dining room, which include a piano and a gramophone, are from the residence of renowned Italian operatic singer Enrico Caruso.
The second floor contains six bedrooms and five bathrooms, while the third floor features various rooms awaiting décor decisions from the next owner of Tenuta di Petriolo. For more information, visit KWNYC.com
