TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE with land of 80 hectares – Rome
In Via Del Boschetto Della Bella Cenci in the Divino Amore district, we offer for sale a beautiful farmhouse with stables surrounded by 80 hectares of land.
The history of the estate “Tenuta di Porta Medaglia and Donna Olimpia" dates back to the 14th century, it belonged to a noble family and it’s located on the outskirts of Rome close to the GRA motorway junction (only 4 Km). It covers an area of approximately 80 hectares of fertile soil of volcanic origin and it consists of a typical farmhouse, recently renovated, with several annexes used as stables, horse barns, tool storage, warehouses for the storage of agricultural vehicles and supplies, two spring water wells.
Recently renovated, the old farmhouse is divided into two floors with a total area of about 380 sq m.
The first floor consists of hallway, study, one bedroom, five bathrooms and 2 large halls elegantly furnished in traditional rustic style with terracotta flooring, wooden ceiling with exposed beams and one fireplace in each of the halls which contribute to creating an elegant and warm environment. One of the two halls gives access to a second hallway which leads to a bedroom and the stairs to reach the upper floor.
- The second floor consists of large open-space living room with kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Currently, the activities of the estate consist mainly in the breeding and caring of horses, either belonging to the estate or to third parties, as well as riding activities and therapeutic horseback courses. All the activities are held in two very well kept dedicated sand paddocks, a covered circular field for horse training and a large stable with a capacity of about 45 horses.
Due to its volcanic origin, the quality of the soil is excellent and it’s very easy to work. The land is located on a hill with gentle slopes and it also has 2 spring water wells that guarantee a good flow of water throughout the year.
It’s currently used to produce fodder for the estate but thanks to the characteristics described above, it can be easily adapted to different crops.
The estate is located near the motorway junction which can be easily reached through Via Porta Medaglia.
The property is still known as “Tenuta di Porta Medaglia and Donna Olimpia” and in the past it was part of Tenuta della Falcognana, a larger estate of about 3000 hectares. The name derives from Donna Olimpia Riccardi, the daughter of Marquess Riccardi. It was a noble family from Florence who were the bankers of the Medici and the owners of the property for a long time beginning from the 16th century…
In 1295, it was ceded to the Monastery of San Sisto by the Church of S. Maria Nuova, with the permission of Pope Boniface IX to sell it. In 1427, during the papacy of Pope Martin V, it was sold by the Petrucci to the Colonna and then in 1432, by Orlando Colonna to Giacomo Cenci; it was at that time that part of the estate became known as PORZIA CENCI. At the end of the 19th century, the estate was sold to the Princes Boncompagni Ludovisi and then at the beginning of the last century, it became the property of the family who currently owns it.
