Full description:

Beautiful historic villa, full of character dating back to the 14th Century in a superb location offering both the tranquility of the Tuscan countryside and the vibrancy of spectacular Florence.

This noteworthy property is situated in the most prestigious suburb of Florence, on the boundary between town and countryside. It possesses characteristics of a villa, farmhouse and castle is thought to date back to around the 14th century when it was most likely used as a military watchtower. Converted into a residential villa around the Sixteenth century and used as such ever since. The range of different types of architecture tells a story of a rich and complicated history. The villa today is for the most part encircled by a beautiful sloping 'curtain wall' which gives testimony to its earlier military use, as does the internal courtyard and the crenelations running atop the surrounding walls. The main villa offers 500m2 of floor space spread over three floors.

Access is via one of the internal courtyards leading into a traditional entrance hallway. The property may also be accessed directly from the garage (accessed off street) passing directly from the garage into the kitchen area. The ground floor comprises three very spacious areas; a reception room with antique stone fireplace and high vaulted ceilings, a formal dining room with a chestnut beamed ceiling and a lovely bright veranda which leads out onto the rear courtyard. Also on the ground floor, a library/study, a kitchen, laundry area, and one bedroom with en-suite facilities. There is also a private chapel on the ground floor.
The dining room, the reception room, the bedroom, and the study all lead out onto either private patios or courtyards, offering endless possibilities for those who seek a quiet place to read or relax.

The First floor is composed of five bedrooms, two of which may be described as master suites with private bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a lovely private terrace offering fantastic views. There is a further bedroom in the tower or Belvedere.

Situated on the other side of the driveway there is a self contained studio apartment composed of a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a detached sitting room. This apartment offers 90 m2 of floor space and is currently used by the housekeeper. Situated behind the housekeepers apartment there is a greenhouse, kitchen garden and storage.

The beautiful gardens surrounding the property really make this property special and ideal for a large family or group.
