San Macario, Italy
Price: $1.755 million at 1.35 dollars to the euro
Description: A limestone- and brick-walled structure dating back more than 1,000 years in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, this former convent was restored in 2003.
The treatment is austere, with modern Italian design touches such as clean-lined, dark-wood kitchen cabinets set off by simple slab-granite counter tops and back splash.
There are numerous medieval touches throughout the residence such as statuary niches, exposed stone interior walls and ogive-arched windows.
There's nearly one acre of grounds and gardens, as well as room enough to install a swimming pool, and an annex ripe for restoration.
