Full description:

Stylish Florentine villa situated in the beautiful countryside just above Florence. The villa sits within the small estate composed of two guesthouses, olive groves and scenic gardens with an infinity pool which offers unobstructed views over the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

The main villa, originally believed to be a 12th century Ghibbeline watch tower, was converted into a villa padronale during the 17th century and then completely restored in the 70's by the current owners. The architect who currently owns the property endeavoured to create a functioning property for practical and comfortable living, whilst maintaining the historic character of the villa.

The villa offers 450 sq.m of living space over three floors, however the villa is connected to the cantina and ex-limonaia which offers a further 300 sq.m of space.

The ground floor comprises an open plan spacious living room, full of natural light thanks to the huge wall/window which allows one to enjoy views over the gardens and Tuscan countryside beyond. The living room leads onto the dining room, kitchen and pantry, which leads onto the aforementioned cantina.

The first floor is accessed either via a beautiful hand made stone stairway, a work of art in itself or via an elevator intelligently hidden away in the original stairway column.
There are five en suite bedrooms, another bedroom, and a further separate bathroom. The master bedroom is composed of three levels and is situated partly in the characteristic watch tower, therefore providing some of the best views the property has to offer.

The lower ground floor is accessed via the kitchen/pantry and comprises of four distinct areas, each of which have beautiful stone archway entrances. This floor is currently used as wine / olive oil cellar, laundry, utility room and storage, however it offers great potential.

The guest house is a restored stone barn situated besides the main villa offering 135 sq.m of floor space over two floors comprising of a kitchen and lounge on the ground floor, and 3 bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. Restored more recently than the main villa, the guesthouse has a modern style however the materials used are predominately traditional such as cotto floorings and hard furnishings in wood, iron or stone.

The second guest house or staff apartment is situated below the property in a very private area. This charming one floor cottage boasts an open plan living area abundant in natural light due to a large wall window, consisting of kitchen, lounge diner, as well as a two bathrooms and a spacious master bedroom. The cottage enjoys complete privacy and great views from the covered patio great for al-fresco breakfasts.

The grounds spans 1.7 hectares of which around 1 hectare is olive groves and the remaining land being garden, swimming pool area and parking.

The estate sits is a privileged elevated position which seems to be higher than any of the other properties dotted around the surrounding landscape. The location which overlooks the surrounding valleys in all directions was most probably the reason the Ghibbeline military chose to build a watch tower here. The villa is 15 minutes from the centre of Florence, and 10 minutes away from the local shops and restaurant.
