Full description:

This charming, completely restored country home in San Donato, Colline, is surrounded by a private garden and located in the rolling hills, just 15 minutes from the historic centre of Florence. Completely immersed in the greenery of the Tuscan countryside, Casa Merlaia offers spectacular views of the surrounding areas.

The house comprises some 200 sqm constructed over 2 floors and includes an attached portion which could also serve as an independent guest apartment.

The views overlook the garden and swimming pool.

The restoration work has been carefully carried out by the owner, giving the utmost attention to detail and preservation of the original Tuscan characteristics of the home. The ceilings have visible wood beams and the floors are in terracotta from nearby Impruneta.

The private swimming pool is newly added and provides a salt-water purification system. The anti-slip steps facilitate the access to the swimming pool with a total length of 15m. An electric covering guarantees the year round maintenance and security of the pool.

A wood structure with windows is near the pool and hosts a shower, Turkish bath, and is suitable for a small gym area.
