This elegant Liberty-style villa is located on the hills of Tuscany, near Montespertoli and roughly half an hour from Florence. The building, roughly 500 sqm with 6 bedrooms in total, has been recently restored and is in excellent shape, with high-level finishes and modern comforts. The 4,000-sqm park surrounding the villa is home to a beautiful tree-lined avenue leading right in front of the villa, where one can find the 12 × 7 m pool with whirlwind.
Services are all available in the nearby town of Montespertoli (6km; 10’) and from the villa one can reach all the art cities of Tuscany in less than two hours by car (San Gimignano, Florence, Monteriggioni, Volterra, Siena, Montepulciano, Arezzo…).
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The villa (500 sqm – 5,380 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) is laid over three levels, with indepdendent entrances on the ground and first floor. The door on the ground floor, right in front of the pool area, opens onto an independent apartment (70 sqm) made up of living room, spacious habitable kitchen, bedroom with bathroom and laundry.
On the upper floor one can instead enter the proper part of the villa. The main door opens into a huge and bright living room with fireplace. From here one can then pass into an office space, the spacious dining room with a 16-seat table, a generous kitchen fitted with all the appliances, and the bathroom. Outside, a nice paved terrace runs around the building and includes a cozy outdoor dining area right above the pool.
On the upper floor, reached via the monumental staircase at the rear of the main floor, is the sleeping area of the villa made up of a master suite with private bathroom, two double bedrooms (also with private bathroom) and a single bedroom with bathroom. From this last room, through a staircase, one can finally reach the last single bedroom located in the turrent and offering a stunning panoramic view over the surrounding countryside.
The building, dating back to the early 20th century, has been recently restored and boasts Liberty-styled finishes of the highest quality, with marble tiling, plaster decorations, sinuous moldings and frescoes. All has been preserved and valorized, but it was also decided to improve the building fitting it with modern comfots and amenities such as air conditioning, whirlwind tubs and centralized heating. The independent apartment on the ground floor, being “separated” from the main villa, boasts more modern finishes, also of the highest quality.
The villa is immersed in its own 4,000-sqm private park and features two independent accesses. The first and main one is embellished by a characteristic tree-lined avenue leading directly in front of the villa, right next to the pool area. The second one, more private, leads to the rear of the villa to the private parking area.
The pool area is located right in front of the villa, at the same level as the independent apartment. The basin, measuring 12 × 7 m, is surrounded by a beautiful travertine-paved sunbathing area and features a whirlwind water jet.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The villa is currently rented out to tourists and vacationers looking for a luxury dwelling to spend their holidays. The presence of an independent apartment on the ground floor would allow the owners to live in the property while renting. Otherwise, if preferred, the villa could be used as a private home keeping the independent apartment available for guests or to accommodate the keepers of the property.
