At 600m altitude Monastero La Stanza, sitting on a plot of 4000 sqm land of descending slopes with commanding views of the Arno Valley and surrounding hills is up for sale at a bargain price.
The massive stone building dating back from 1729 has two floors of 140 sqm with a Loggia for outside dining with a superb view.
On the upper floor, living room with stone fireplace and kitchen corner, bathroom with tub and one bedroom.
Downstairs we have a living room and studio/atelier (or third bedroom) with door to pergola, kitchen and dining room with a beautiful stone arch, bathroom with shower and bedroom.
The property is immediately habitable but would benefit from renovation.
The two floors are linked by an inner staircase, but they could be used also as two separate apartments.
Windows are small as was common in ancient times but each one offers a view like a painting by old masters. Walls are thick so in summer it is cool and no air-conditioning is needed.
Two separate buildings nearby belonged too to the ancient monastery. The surroundings are woods and ancient pastures.
The property is located in the Municipality of Reggello, about 25 km (16 miles) southeast of Florence and can be reached in 12-15 minutes by car (4-5km). Here you can find supermarkets (Carrefour is the closest), restaurants, bars, ATM, pharmacy, gas station, swimming pool and more). Reggello is home to the Abbey of Vallombrosa, located in the Vallombrosa forest, 10 km (6 mi) from the town centre.
Another sight is the Castle of Sammezzano, a palazzo in Moorish Revival architectural style.
