The property called “Podere Colombaia” consists of a farm building, with the original part dating from 1400 and renovations from 1850, with two floors above ground, as well as a basement, attic and tower. The property includes two single storey buildings, as well as agricultural land around the buildings, along with another piece of land on the other side of Viale di Poggio Imperiale. The land covers 43,500 m², whilst the covered area is 1,400 m². The buildings are all located in the higher part of the complex, close to the Villa del Poggio Imperiale. From here the land drops away gently towards the valley and the centre of Florence. The buildings are vacant and in a fairly good state of maintenance. The redevelopment of the property would make for an ideal residence or hotel.

The property is located in a semi-central area of the Municipality of Florence (381,037 inhabitants), which is the capital of the province and of the Tuscany region, and one of the most visited Italian cities by the tourists from across the globe. The area is one of the most prestigious semi-central and hilly areas of Florence, in Poggio Imperiale. Viale dei Colli, and the typical roads of the Tuscan countryside, allow easy access on foot to Piazzale Michelangelo, the Basilica of San Miniato a Monte, the Arcetri hill and the old city centre of Florence, which is 2.8 km away on foot. There is good car access and the local bus, line 3 (Galilei), connects the property to the city centre, with the bus stop 700 metres from the property.
