Full description:

In the hamlet of Mosciano, that nestles in one of the loveliest hills of Tuscany, just 6km (3,5 miles) from the city centre of Florence, a stunning fifteenth century country Villa covering approximately 1,050 sq. mt. / 11,300 sq. ft. plus two farmhouses and outbuildings, with swimming pool and tennis court.

This exclusive Estate, in a majestic hilly position, boasts views of the city and valley with open vistas towards the hills of Fiesole and Monte Morello.

The main Villa dates back to 1400 and the original section is the "tower house" onto which additional buildings were added throughout the fifteenth century. A charming small chapel built in more recent times integrates the whole property that is framed by luxuriant vegetation of cypress and olive trees, as well as the ancient, valuable terracotta urns that house lush, fragrant lemon trees.

The residence has been wonderfully restored and great attention has been paid to every detail. It has maintained the original period features, such as the pietra serena stone lintels, locally made terracotta tiled floors, stunning antique coffered wooden ceilings yet has completely adapted to modern housing necessities, including a burglar alarm; two water supplies one from the artesian well and the other from the aqueduct; natural gas heating; satellite; automated garden sprinklers and external night lighting.

The Villa offers an area of 830 sq. mt. / 8,900 sq. ft. and is arranged on two levels, excluding the turret. Possibility to install a lift. Stunning reception room with exquisite stone fireplace and beautiful period coffered wood ceilings boasting significant 6 mt. (20 ft.) heights. Sale includes prestigious antique furniture and rare and valuable carpets. The house is very bright and features enviable south-east exposure.

Staff or guest quarters adjoin the Villa, spread over 223 sq. mt. / 2,400 sq. ft., and offer a private entrance and a pleasant 40 sq. mt. (430 sq. ft.) terrace. A limonaia (lemon house) together with another stone outbuilding can be used for storage or could be usefully utilised as a double garage.

The two farmhouses located below the main Villa offer surface areas of 232 sq. mt. / 2,500 sq. ft. and 243 sq. mt. /2,615 sq. ft., not including their characteristic loggias. These two-level buildings have both been recently renovated, enjoy independent access and boast private gardens.

Paths from the main villa and two farmhouses lead to a recently built 6x12 m swimming pool and tennis court, both set amidst verdant olive groves and come with changing facilities and bathroom.

The main Villa is surrounded by 13 hectares (32 acres) of fenced land, planted with 1500 sq. mt. (0,3 acres) of olive trees and the remaining 11,500 sq. mt. / 1,15 hectares with vines, which provide appreciable quantities of excellent wine (circa 60 tons of DOCG wine) and fine quality olive oil (circa 30 quintals); with a 144 sq. mt. / 1,550 sq. ft. agricultural outbuilding in addition to the cellars, complete with ancient oak barrels and terracotta urns, that are fully functional.

Access to the Villa is from a short suggestive driveway, adjacent to the picturesque main road and with its convenient position, one can easily and quickly reach all the major access roads including the A1 Milan-Rome motorway and the Firenze-Livorno and the Firenze-Siena dual carriageways. A property that is ony 10 minutes by car to the city centre of Florence but situated in the peace of the harmonious Florentine countryside.

This is a property that offers a prestigious private residence. It would therefore be ideal also as a luxurious boutique hotel.
