Dating back to the Fifteenth century, the property was renovated and restored in the 1930's and again in the 1980's by the present owners, with current planning laws protecting the beautiful area from being spoilt by much further development.
The complete villa offers around 1150m2 of floor space which includes the cellars and staff quarters, leaving around 800m2 of floor space for residential use. This liveable and manageable floor space is another unique point of the villa, as many comparable villas in the area have been divided into portions or apartments.
The open-plan layout of the ground floor reception areas is yet another unique point of this villa. The majority of the 800m2 circa of liveable space is spread over two floors, however there is a third floor in the Belvedere or tower.
On the ground floor the main entrance opens onto a large living area divided by arches which provide a central reception area and a sitting area around the fireplace. Accessed off this main salon is the kitchen, the study/library, a cloakroom and WC, and the dining room which leads out onto a fabulous panoramic raised terrace offering views over Florence.
The first floor is accessed via an impressive marble staircase and is composed of bedrooms, bathrooms, a second living room/study – with a large balcony/terrace overlooking the gardens and Florence.
In total there are currently 9 bedrooms, 2 living rooms/studies, and 4 bathrooms, however this property has good potential for a relatively simple redesign and modernisation.
From the second floor a second stairway gives access to the loft/attic area (renovated into storage rooms), a study/reading room in the tower and a large terrace with 360 degree views.
There is also a large cellar/cantina and a limonaia leading onto the garden.
Further to the self contained staff quarters in the villa, there is also a gatehouse with ground floor garage space, and a one bedroom first floor apartment with sitting room and kitchen.
The impressive entrance gate is approached via a small residential street onto a cypress tree lined driveway leading up the front door of the villa.
A well kept lawn surrounds the villa (front and rear) however to the rear the gardens are terrace leading down onto an olive grove. Below this, there is woodland leading to the the city.
