On the hills of Florence, in a beautiful location with a breathtaking view over the historic center of the city, this Renaissant villa has been finely restored and offers nowadays a total of 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, a relax area built inside the old cellar and a terraced garden with the 3 × 3 m pool. The property is also ideal as a location for weddings and events.
The historic center of Florence, with its shops, monuments and boutiques, is just 5 km from the villa and can be reached by car in a few minutes. Same goes for the Amerigo Vespucci airport (7km; 15’). Milan, Rome and Bologna are equally valid alternatives.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The manorial villa (600 sqm – 6,456 sqft, 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms) is built along the slope of the hills and offers a unique view over the historic center of Florence. The building, dated back to 1480 by the metal writing at the entrance gate, is laid over four floors in total:
- Lower ground floor: laundry room, single and double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (both with shower). The old cellar of the property has been converted into a cozy relax area with a 3 × 2 m whirlwind pool and a bathroom with shower.
- Upper ground floor: ample hall with fireplace, frescoed sitting room with fireplace, professional kitchen with access to the pergola and guest bathroom;
- First floor: two double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom (tub), double and single bedroom sharing a bathroom (shower).
- Second floor (tower): TV room, ample suite with double bedroom, bathroom with shower and cozy sitting room with kitchen corner.
The villa has been masterfully restored and one can still easily identify features typical of those buildings dating back to the Renaissance.
The guesthouse (250 sqm – 2,690 sqft, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) is located not far from the villa and houses two independent apartments for a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The villa dominates over a terraced garden descending along the slope which houses a squared dipping pool (3 m each side) and an octagonal fountain. A few olive trees dot the land which spans roughly 1.7 hectares.
The kitchen’s door leading outside opens up into a pergola covered in vines, ideal for al fresco dining or to just enjoy the pleasant Summer climate of Tuscany.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The villa, thanks to its size and the beautiful position, offers multiple paths to be followed. The easiest one is using it as a private luxury residence, with rooms available for potential guests. If the income path is chosen instead, one choice is a B&B business and thanks to the guesthouse the owners could also live in the property while managing the activity. The beautiful position and the ample surfaces available are also a worthy frame for weddings and events, which could take place both outside in the beautiful garden and inside in the beautifully frescoed halls.
