DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS, STATE AND FINISHES The property (634 sqm – 6,822 sqft), currently split into two apartments, is located on the first floor of a beautiful 16th-century villa and is served by two separate accesses: the first one via a staircase (or an elevator) through the main entrance hall of the villa; the second one through a second door and up a winding staircase from the cellar. The main access opens up in a corridor leading to an ample frescoed hall with balcony over the garden. The property boasts a total of five double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.

The works (started in 2005) have been carried out with extreme care, preserving wherever possible the beautiful original frescoes and using only prestigious high-quality in line with the prestige of the property. Neoclassical trompe-l’œil architectures painted on the walls create a stark contrast with the modern finishes chosen for the apartments. EXTERNAL AREA The external terrace (190 sqm), accessed from the kitchen, has been recently restored and offers a unique view over the historic center of Florence. The garden, co-owned with other landlords, is a typical example of an Italian park with hedges, fountains and graveled walkways, recently revised and brought back to life. Access to property is through a private tree-lined avenue branching from the main road and leading straight to the underground garage. USE AND POTENTIAL USES The property is currently split into two apartments (respectively with three and two bedrooms) but it is possible to easily join the two sections into a single residence. In its current layout, the secondary apartment (two bedrooms) could be easily rented out for a good income or reserved for the staff taking care of the house.
