In a hilly and panoramic position overlooking the historic center of Florence, 320-sqm apartment inside a historic villa. The property, restored and in excellent condition, is the typical Florentine manorial dwelling with high frescoed ceilings, bright rooms and a beautiful internal courtyard. The apartment currently offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with possibility of buying the neighboring 130-sqm unit to have a bigger 4-bedroom 4-bathroom apartment.
Basic services are just 2 km from the property, while the historic center of Florence is no more than 5 minutes away by car. The airport of Florence is less than 20 minutes from the property and several cities of Tuscany can be reached in less than two hours by car (San Gimignano, Siena, Lucca, Montepulciano, Pisa…).
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The apartment (320 sqm – 3,443 sqft, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) is located on the first floor of the villa.
From the condominium staircase one gets onto the landing with the entrance door. Upon entering, there is a beautiful reception hall with four doors and exit onto the spacious main terrace. On the right side, the first door leads into the kitchen with dining room and terrace, while the second one leads into the first bedroom and one of the bathrooms.
On the left side, instead, the doors lead into a cozy sitting room and a studio. From this last room one can then enter two double bedrooms with a bathroom. The hallway running along the bedrooms overlooks the internal courtyard of the villa.
The apartment, in excellent condition, boasts the typical finishes commonly found in the manorial villas around Florence. The rooms, all very bright, are paved with Tuscan terracotta tiles and feature beautifully frescoed ceilings with late-Renaissance and Baroque decorations.
The apartment is connected through a door (currently bricked over but easily reopened) to a second smaller unit (130 sqm – 1,399 sqft) which could be used to further expand the dwelling and have a single bigger apartment by adding a living room, a kitchen with dining area, a bedroom with bathroom and three lofts.
The villa revolves around a characteristic central courtyard decorated with pietra serena arches and statues. Outside the villa there are two graveled aprons with private car spots for the apartment.
The main terrace (40 sqm – 430 sqft) faces north-east and is also excellent for al fresco dinners, with Florence in the background. On the southwestern side there is a second terrace, smaller than the first one but nonetheless suitable for pleasant outdoor moments.
