This 16th-century manorial villa is located on the banks of river Arno, not far from Arezzo. The building (900 sqm) has been finely restored and features some beautiful reception hall with classic and luxury finishes. The property, between villa and guesthouse, includes 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, plus a private manorial chapel. The 10,000-sqm park softly descends towards the river and houses a 12 × 6 m swimming pool. In total, the property covers 6.7 ha of land.
Services are all available in the nearby town (2km; 4’) and the center of Arezzo is just 15’ away by car. The location of the property is also very convenient to visit the most famous art cities of Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Monteriggioni…).
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The manorial villa (900 sqm – 9,684 sqft, 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms), with its exquisite late-Renaissance style, is laid over three floors. The basement still features the old cellars and storages. With independent access from outside is also a laundry.
Entering the ground floor, one finds himself inside an elegant and bright reception hall with fireplace, featuring high ceilings with impressive wooden beams. All around the floor are a billiard room, the spacious habitable kitchen, a dining room with exit onto the garden, the library/reading room with its own private bathroom and a small bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The villa also features a private chapel (20 sqm – 215 sqm) and a small garage (20 sqm – 215 sqft).
At the rear, a cozy hallway leads to the stairwell to the upper floor. Here one lands into the central elegant living room leading in turn into five bedrooms, all with their private bathroom. Back to the staircase, one can go further up to reach what is effectively an independent studio apartment with living room/cooking corner, bedroom and bathroom. Going further up one finally reaches the belvedere with a view over the surrounding countryside.
The guesthouse (105 sqm – 1,130 sqft, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathroom) is a stone building, set a few steps from the villa, laid over two floors. The lower floor accommodates two independent bathrooms and two bathrooms, while the upper floor is made up of a spacious living are with cooking corner and a bedroom with bathroom.
The property, covering altogether roughly 6.7 hectares (16.5 acres), is set along the banks of the Arno river. On the western side, the villa is surrounded by trees, which ensures great privacy, while on the opposite side are the meadows and the olive grove (over 8,500 sqm) that can produce extra-virgin olive oil for personal use.
The guesthouse is enriched by a small private garden, well maintained and enclosed by a stone wall, planted with roses and ornamental flowers that fill the property with colors during spring and summer. In total, the park of the villa spans roughly 10,000 sqm and gradually fades into the river.
A short distance from the villa, right behind the guesthouse, is also a 12 × 6 m swimming pool with a rounded contour.
