Emad Khashoggi is a real estate developer for over 30 years. He founded Cogemad ( www.cogemad.com ) in 1989, with a desire to offer haute couture estates and interiors, and has successfully created and sold many luxury properties over the years.
Emad and his wife Maryam (hence the name Maryamado) started searching in Italy for their dream home in 2018. This dream began many years earlier with Emad watching “Much Ado About Nothing” back in 1993, and falling in love with the scenery. The comedy based on Shakespeare’s play was set in the rolling hills of Tuscany, and Emad decided that one day he would move there and live in the idyllic setting of Tuscany. Emad and Maryam visited many properties in Tuscany in search of this dream home, and finally found and fell in love with an over 200 hectare property dated from the 16th century, thirty minutes from the center of Florence, in beautiful San Casciano in Val di Pesa.
They are happily joined on this adventure by childhood friends, Marco and Barbara Recchia, and hope to one day have all their families and loved ones join them to enjoy this beautiful estate together.
