This stunning villa peeps over the hill tops and is nestled in the plateau of the south side of the city. On the outskirts of the Chianti Fiorentino area, offering stunning views of Florence. The main villa, built as a fort with a watchtower and a courtyard bordered by an elegant wall, dates back to the 12th century; when it was used as a guard outpost thanks to the panoramic location. The last renovation dates back to the 16th century, when changes were made that give the property the current Renaissance characteristics. The villa has been restored by the current owners to offer their guests a fair combination of the original features and modern spaces with functional layouts. The wonderful residence has a total interior area of about 700 square meters, on three levels. On the ground floor there is a bright living room overlooking the inner garden, the characteristic pergola and beautiful wisteria flowers. There is a bright double lounge and a large studio, a dining room and a central hallway with large windows, all revolving around the Renaissance court. A lovely spiral staircase leads to the upper floor, which houses the sleeping area with 4 double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a distinctive tower with panoramic views of the Chianti hills and Florence. Here one could add a bedroom, or leave it as a lounge/panoramic studio. The basement includes a large professional steel kitchen, a comfortable additional dining room , and a large pantry with laundry and barrel-vaulted cellars. This area still bears the distinctive testimonies of the time, and it is used as a wine cellar. Ideal space for tastings, an indoor gym, or a small SPA. There is a secondary staircase that leads from the kitchen to the first floor, which could be replaced by an elevator. A two-level annex includes a kitchen, dining room, living room and sleeping area with one bedroom and one bathroom. Externally the property is surrounded by a lush garden of about 2 ha with 130 olive trees and a large parking lot.
