This farmhouse complex for sale has the origins that go back to the 1600 as a complex of farmers' houses in the area, with an essential structure. It consists of the main house on two levels and other small adjacent buildings that were born as productive buildings and that over the years have been transformed into civilian homes. All together they give the idea of a small farmhouse in which the single units maintain independence without being isolated. They are surrounded by the garden and immersed in a larger plot of land totaling approximately 14 hectares.
