Santa Chiara Ref. 10862 Historic ex-convent with garden in Sarteano

€ 1.500.000


Ready for a new, healthy lifestyle? This could be the perfect choice. Situated at the pinnacle of the medieval centre of Sarteano, the imposing building with lots of space, a separate owners’ apartment, a glorious garden bordered by the original city fortification walls and a stone tower in need of complete restoration. The Santa Chiara has a long history, first records date to 1498 when building commenced on the Poor Clare Convent. Because it was specifically a convent and therefore not closed within cloisters it was built in the form of a T. The building was later taken over by the Comune of Sarteano, it was used as the Elementary school of the town for many years until in 1960 a new school building took over. The Santa Chiara was sold in 1968 and restored with care to maintain the original character of the building, including a restaurant and hotel facilities. It is now ripe for another change and a new lease of life offering endless possibilities for anyone wanting a complete lifestyle change.

Sarteano is a magical town, vibrant, genuine and renowned in the area for its forward thinking administration that has successfully promoted culture and leisure with a thriving theatre, museum, excellent craftsmen, shops and restaurants. and the obligatory medieval castle. Not only that it is ideally situated between Montepulciano and Cetona, just 6 kms. from the A1 Autostrada and 12 km. from the mainline railway station in Chiusi. It sits on a high plain with the rich farming land of the Val di Chiana to the east and the unique val d’Orcia to the west. There is no better place to live.

There is a small parking area which leads to steps leading down into the garden in front of the building. It is beautifully serene and atmospheric due to the high fortress walls enclosing 2 sides of the garden and the building most of the other two sides. It is possible to climb onto the ramparts, enjoy an aperitif and the magnificent view of the valley below. There is a separate olive grove just outside the walls.

There is an unrestored tall building of 132.52 sq.m. in one corner of the garden, with the relevant permits this would make ideal further accommodation.
