This splendid villa sits on the Impruneta hill and is immersed in the plateau on the southern side of the city, in the closest Florentine Chianti, and offers a breathtaking view of Florence.
The main villa, built in 1100 as a small fortress with a watchtower and a courtyard bordered by an elegant wall, was initially used as a guard outpost. The last extension dates back to 1500, when the changes made gave the building its current Renaissance characteristics.
The villa has been restored by the current owners to offer guests a fair combination of original features and modern spaces with functional layouts. It has a total internal surface of about 700 square meters, on three levels.
On the ground floor there is a bright living room overlooking the internal garden with the typical wisteria pergola. On the inside there is a bright double living room and a large study, a dining room and a central corridor with large windows, all surrounding the Renaissance court.
A modern spiral staircase leads to the upper floor housing the sleeping area with 4 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a magnificent room in the tower with a 360° panoramic view of the Chianti hills and Florence. Perfect as a private sitting room or as a fifth bedroom.
In the basement there is a large professional steel kitchen, a dining room with vaulted ceilings, and a large pantry with laundry and barrel vaulted cellars. This area still bears the distinctive evidence of the time and its former use as a wine cellar. Ideal space for tastings, an internal gym, or a small SPA.
There is a secondary staircase that connects the kitchen to the first floor, which could be replaced by an elevator.
There is an annex on two levels with kitchen, dining room, living room and sleeping area with a bedroom and a bathroom.
The property is surrounded by a luxuriant garden of about 1 hectare with 130 olive trees, a vegetable garden, and a large parking lot.
Privileged position in Impruneta, one of the most sought-after areas immediately outside the city.
