Luxury Villa in Tuscany - Italy
History, art and beauty are in the air in this amazing Villa right outside Florence, you can almost smell the scent of past times.
As you step in and walk along the staircase in “pietra serena” or through the statues and olive trees surrounding the property, you can someway imagine the groups of artists, who met here to talk about art and new trends.
This was a place of relax and inspiration, but also a family home, where they used to meet all together, to enjoy moments of cheer and sharing.
The total area of the garden is 3.640 square meters and there sits the main Villa, whose total area is 241 square meters on 2 floors. The main entrance is via a glassed loggia as it used to be in the past for luxury villas and, right in front of you, there is the staircase in precious “pietra serena” (a stone very peculiar of Florence and surroundings), leading to the first floor.
On the ground floor, you can find a sitting room on your right, while on the left you access the big lounge with direct exit to the veranda and garden, “safeguarded” by a big oak. On the same floor, there are a kitchen and a bathroom and there is a further exit/entrance to the backyard.
Stepping up to the first floor, there are 4 spacious bedrooms, all with lovely views over the garden on the southern side and towards the countryside on the northern side. A bathroom is there for all the bedrooms; on the opposite side, a lovely small terrace stands above the entrance, overlooking the imposing gate of the property.
Perpendicular to the main villa, there is an annex, once the house of the guardian and keeper of the property. The total area of the annex is about 149 square meters on two floors.
On the ground floor there are a wide storage and cellars, where once they used to produce olive oil. On the first floor there is a proper flat with entrance, kitchen, living room, bathroom and a big bedroom.
At the back of this big annex, there is a paved area with gazebo and oven where it is possible to cook pizza or grilled meat and vegetables for incredible al-fresco dinners.
Included in the property, there are 2 more annexes:
1. A hen-house of about 8 square meters, which could be easily converted into a storage
2. A storage of about 25 square meters, with very big windows to guarantee a quantity of light for the artist, who used to retire there to get the right inspiration and create his works.
The property is surrounded by olive and fruit trees. A unique staircase at the back of the main villa leads you to the upper area of the garden, with a path leading to a “secret corner” with a small table and chairs under the shade of the trees, where you can enjoy a unique view up to Florence.
Still part of the property is a plot of land of about 800 square meters, placed right in front of the main property, where there is an annex of about 39 square meters, used as a storage. Also from this side it is possible to enjoy a view over the countryside and the profile of Florence.
The property is in good structural conditions; some works are needed to bring it back to its original splendour and make it once again the most beautiful and exclusive villa in the area. It is an ideal property for a big family, where parents and siblings could live separately but sharing the external areas at the same time. On the other hand, you could have a main villa with a big and comfortable dependance for your guests.
The villa is placed in a very exclusive area at the door of Florence: in the surroundings only other prestigious villas are set, so quiet and privacy are guaranteed.
This Villa is a unique piece of history and elegance and just a few are left around Florence. Of course its future owner will be a privileged person to have the possibility to fully enjoy it.
