Situated a short drive from Florence, amongst the vineyards and olive groves of the Chianti region sits this historic villa which has recently been restored to a high level using traditional Tuscan materials.
The property consists of the villa, a spacious guest house, a dependance and 2 hectares of land. Apart from the quality of this historic villa, the location is the key word when describing this property. Only minutes from the highway which connects Florence with Sienna, meaning central Florence is perfectly feasible for evenings out, without renouncing the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside. The villa is surrounded by the vineyards belonging to one of Tuscany's most famous wine estates.
The villa is finished in a style that is clearly authentic and in keeping with the traditional style of historic villas in the area. With approx. 420m2 of floor space situated over 3 floors.
Accessed via an impressive vaulted entrance hall which is luminous and spacious, the ground floor offers a spacious sala for formal entertaining, lounge/dining room, study with arched French windows, kitchen with antique stone fireplace, laundry room and bathroom. There is also a small wine cellar/cantina accessed via stairs in the entrance hall, situated behind the antique stone oven, a typical characteristic of a historic villa which now serves as an impressive focal point.
The first floor can be accessed via 2 separate stairways situated at opposite ends of the villa.
5 double bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The master suite enjoys a spacious walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom and stairs to the tower (dovecote) which may serve as a light filled study. The bedrooms offer beautiful views over the surrounding vineyards and countryside.
The adjacent barn has been converted into a charming guest house measuring approx. 200m2 situated over 2 floors. Open-plan kitchen/diner, lounge area and a spacious bedroom
with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. The guest house has private access and an independent terrace area.
The property, which may be described as a small estate, offers approx. 2 hectares of land of which approx. 1.5 hectares are olive groves. The property is accessed via a short white road which leads onto a cypress tree lined drive. The olive groves take up most of the land, however there is a small garden and various terraces/patios. The swimming pool has been purposely situated in an area offering privacy and good views.
There is another separate building in the grounds currently used for storage.
Perfect for those seeking the peace and quiet of the countryside without being too far from a town or city. The historic town of San Casciano Val di Pesa is one of the largest towns
in the Chianti area, and being a market town with an historic centre it is a charming place to have on your doorstep. Ancient family run shops such as butchers, bakers and various alimentari can be found inside the walls of the town, whilst larger supermarkets and various other stores are located in the suburbs. San Casciano offers everything one may need as well as a good selection of restaurants and trattoria, however Florence is so close it is also a viable alternative for shopping and evening's out. The principle highway connection Florence with Siena is around a 5 minute drive, meaning the majority of the 15/20min drive into central Florence is all highway.
