NOTES ON THE ACCOUNTS OF Società Agricola Tarisha Srl
As stated in the accounts as at 31.12.15, the Company is showing among the assets on the balance sheet, buildings and land with a fiscal value of €14,000,000.00
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY
All the rural buildings can be converted for residential use and/or (completely) for tourist/hotel use.
For the cottages with an area of less than 500 m² there is permission for an extension to bring them up to a maximum of 500 m² with the use of direct building permission (regional law of September 2011 ).
This means, in terms of total area, an increase of 730 m² compared with the existing 3995 m² of the 11 cottages.
There are also various annexes to the cottages which have not been counted as part of the existing area in calculating the repairable square meterage.
The two stables give a possibility to built maximum the equivalent of 10.000m² can also be converted 100% for touristic use,. ( 400 square mt. are for civil use )
The castle, which was a 3-star hotel until 30/09/2009 has an area of 1200 m², to which should be added a number of annexes (including a chapel).
During the course of March 2011, with the favourable opinion of the technical draughtsmen who produced the regulatory plan, and with the favourable opinion of the Planning Commission and ratification by Assisi City Council, we obtained an increase in the area on which the Castle stands, giving a further buildable area of 3.200 m² for tourist/hotel use.
To sum up, as the matter stands, the existing buildable/refurbishable area is 15.995 m² (cottages + stables), to which should be added 730 m² of permitted extensions to the cottages , a further 3.200 m² with consent for civil/tourist/hotel use, and the Castle giving a total of 19,125 m².
The land is made up of 122 hectares of arable (with a number of truffle grounds), 15 hectares of vineyard/olive grove and 55 hectares of pasture/woodland, making a total of 192 hectares.
The Company has CAP quotas for an annual contribution of 40.500 Euro and it is possible to increase the existing quotas for vines and olives.
There is abundant water throughout the site and some of the cottages are served by their own well, as also are the castle and the stables.
The water table is at a depth of about 50 m ad the flow is abundant.
The internal roads (totally private 13Km.) have been completely repaired in the course of the work carried out in February 2011. They run through and connect all the habitable units within the property, which has at its centre the castle known as Palazzo Serafini.
Recently two new roads were identified which will be repaired in the first few months of 2015, making use of the call for tenders for cutting the woodland, which entitles a company which applies for it to a grant for repairing the roads.
The entire property is a wildlife protection and repopulation reserve, and contains an abundance of wild boar, pheasants, deer, foxes, hares and all the other fauna typical of the area.
It is also possible to transform the destination of the area from agricultural to golf.
