With origins from as far back as the late 1200s this ‘Magione’ was originally built to house members of the Knights Templar. The buildings include the original church, hospital and residences as well as outbuildings and a fabulous central courtyard. The current owners restored one of the barns in 2011 into a spacious one bedroom apartment with large reception room, kitchen and bathroom, maintaining the beautiful brick work features. The rest of the buildings have been made structurally sound with a new roof and mains water has been brought to the property. With over 1000 sq.m left to restore, large open spaces and extraordinary original features, this could become an unbeatable boutique hotel business or simply a dream Tuscan summer home.
