Believed to be the work of Michelangelo
A historical residence of several Noble families, the villa sits on a hillside overlooking the striking typical Tuscan landscape, full of olive trees, vineyards, cypresses and pine trees.Located in the beautiful village of San Casciano Val di Pesa, just about 12.5 kilometres away from Florence, its origins are documented to the early XVI century and it is considered one of the finest examples of classical Renaissance architecture. The villa is classified as a Historic Monument by the city's "Fine Arts" administration because of its magnificent interior and exterior features. Its symmetrical plans and facades, as well as the fantastic layout of the interiors, reflect the Renaissance tradition at its very best. It is evident that the current owners have carried out a painstaking and detailed renovation programme to produce what is a magnificent Villa. Whilst having being extensively renovated, particular care has been taken to retain the original features and character; these include excellent ceiling heights, open fireplaces, ornate archways, original tiled flooring and shutters. These, together with the addition of modern fixtures and fittings (elevator and air conditioning) have come together effortlessly to create an extremely comfortable family home fit for modern living in a prime position. Villa Pisignano extends to approximately 4.5 Hectares of gardens and grounds, of which just under 1 Hectare decorate the garden surrounding the Villa. Extra Virgin olive oil is produced every year from the 800 olive trees within the grounds.Energy class G:Index 193.770kWh/sqm/per annum
