Magnificent historical 6 bedroom villa ideally located within the hills of Florence, surrounded by the typical Tuscan countryside, a site of extraordinary scenic quality, with stunning 360 degree countryside views.
The complex, which includes the manor house and other farmhouses, covers 14 hectares of land, which is mainly cultivated with olive trees and vineyards, and also a 5,000m2 park featuring a panoramic swimming pool and a tennis court.
This small hamlet has ancient origins where the earliest historical documented evidence dates back to the 12th Century. In 1844 however, when the property was bought over by new owners, new Neoclassic features shaped this luxury villa and the additional buildings acquired their contemporary outline.
A historical parkland surrounds the buildings on 3 sides featuring woodland on the northern side that separates the villa from the nearby road. On the south side there is a large terrace with a view and to the west, in front of the villa's facade, a large forecourt with a garden leading to the recently developed area, with a tennis court, a beautiful 100m2 swimming pool imbedded in the centre of a flowery garden, sided by a newly restored lemon conservatory.
Recent conservation works were concluded in 2007 and include the main structure of the building, wiring and plumbing, fixtures and all finishing touches.
The villa is constructed on three levels with a total floor surface of over 1,150m2, plus the basement level featuring the cellar. A turret, typical of Tuscan architecture, features 2 small terraces with breathtaking views overlooking all sides of the estate.
First floor, which is accessed by a main entrance hall and a secondary one on the back of the villa. This section of the villa includes the living area, dining room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a few utility rooms and hallways.
The first floor, which is accessed via a monumental staircase and a service staircase which leads from the kitchen. 6 large bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
Finally, on the second floor there is a kitchen, bedroom with en-suite bathroom and other rooms currently used as bedrooms, play room and TV room. From this floor there is also access to the turret with truly enchanting views.
Florence is internationally renowned as "The City of Art", and offers an invaluable
collection of works of art, palaces and monuments which make of this remarkable city an open air museum. The historical heart of Florence is Piazza della Signoria where Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizzi Gallery are the most imposing buildings. A short walk away is the Duomo, the magnificent work of the architect Brunelleschi, the bell tower of Giotto and St. John's Baptistery with its famous bronze doors. The river Arno runs through the Tuscan county seat, featuring many beautiful luxury villas now for sale.
Among the many bridges crossing the river, the Old Bridge is unique word wide, with its famous jewellery boutiques. Crossed by the famous Vasari Corridor, this is the only bridge that was spared during the Second World War bombings. The left side of the bridge, named Oltrarno, is where one can still experience the atmosphere of the old town of Florence, with its arts and crafts shops, as depicted by Vasco Pratolini and Marcello Vannucci, the famous Florentine novelists.
