Unprecedented Florentine trophy estate whose design is attributed to Michelangelo and thus classified as a Historic Monument, this architectural masterpiece emphatically sets a precedent of elegance and beauty combining Tuscan building materials - such as antique terracotta tiles, stone floors and oak beams - with an iconic modernity. Sited on an enormous parcel totaling more than 4.5 hectares, this Renaissance marvel captures ultimate forever views within unrivaled privacy, as the large floor plan was designed to capture commanding views and dramatic scenery of its manicured grounds and its surrounding hills from every room. Looking outside any of its windows, you are whisked away by the 800 olive grove scenery of peaceful landscaping. Located on the most prime estate section of Chianti Classico, San Casciano is perhaps the most charming countryside area around Florence. A park-like setting, rolling lawns and a 18mt swimmer's pool set a world apart in the heart of Chianti, at just 20 minutes south of Florence. Spanning over 1600 sqm, its sober interior design showcases 7 large living rooms, many of which graced by stone fireplaces and immense volumes. Exceptionally high beamed ceilings are met by rich 18th century terracotta floors throughout, all the rooms are bathed in natural light through huge windows and offer fabulous views stretching down the valley lying at its feet. The grand dining room allows to entertain on a grand scale while its internal layout has been designed to offer maximum privacy to every guest. A lavish master suite with dual baths and closets, plus 7 guest suites are just perfect for large holiday gatherings, with the capability to host over 14 guests. Staff quarters lie in the ground floor together with the engine room. Absolutely no expense was spared inside or out throughout this sun-filled mansion. Grand in every way, but not overwhelming, the design is perfect for large scale entertaining as well as intimate everyday living. This home is nothing short of magnificent at every turn, truly a once in a lifetime opportunity that could never be replicated.
