Rare opportunity to own an exquisitely renovated, historic villa in the most sought-after environs of Florence.
The villa is situated just 10 minutes from the heart of Florence, on a quiet back road just off one of the main roads leading into the centre, linking the charming town of Fiesole with Florence itself. On a fine day it also makes a very pleasant stroll to walk into the historic centre of the city in just 25 minutes. The villa enjoys a private and peaceful setting flanked by olive groves and vineyards so whilst being relatively central, a beautifully countryside setting.
The majority of Florence's main attractions can be viewed from the villa, such as The Duomo, the Val d'Arno, Fiesole, and the Appenines. The villa enjoys an elevated position providing breathtaking views, privacy and security.
The villa dates back to the middle ages when the original tower was built. During the renaissance period villas in this area were chosen as an ideal place of retreat by many of Florentines noble families and it was the Strozzi family who first converted the property into a villa. Since then, the villa has had a series of illustrious owners.
A renowned art historian described the villa as "a real Florentine villa," a perfect example of the 15th Century palagio that wealthy Florentines built as a complement to their urban dwellings.
The villa and grounds were dramatically renovated and restored in the 1990s, by the current owners. With a careful eye to historic accuracy matched by luxurious, modern amenities. The interior and the exterior have been completely overhauled and upgraded according to the highest standards. All historic elements, such as rare intarsia inlay doors and period beamed ceilings were painstakingly restored.
The villa comprises of:
874m2 of living space
5 full bathrooms
1 half bathroom
3 story passenger lift
Fully walled compound
High security infrastructure
Subterranean garage with space for 4 cars
Extensive (and rare.) on-street parking
Garden house with limonaia and additional living space
