Description in Detail
Renaissance state of the art villa with contemporary features located on top of a hill south Florence, only 20 minute drive from the city center. Initially built as a watchtower in 1100, the structure was transformed into a residence in XVI century .
At the end of 1980s the current owners undertook important renovation works. These gave the property a modern touch thanks to the wide rooms and large windows, that make it extremely livable and bright although the classical elements like wooden beam ceilings were kept.
The property consists of two separate units: the main villa of about 700 mq and the dependence of 80 mq with independent access.
The main entrance is through a porch covered with wisteria. Here we are welcomed in a bright large hall with large French windows, that lead to an inner surprising courtyard. The U shape of the ground floor around the courtyard, hosts a dining room and a study room on the left side while on the right there is a large double living room with direct access to the garden that can be turnable into a big peninsula kitchen, a bathroom, and a wardrobe room.
A beautiful spiral staircase made in white marble leads upstairs where there are four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Another staircase brings to the tower with a 360° view of the surrounding hills that could be used as a mood room or as a further bedroom.
On the basement, there is a professional kitchen, a dining room with vaulted ceiling, a pantry and a 100 mq characteristic vaulted cellar with access to the lower garden. The kitchen has the direct access to the garden whre we can find a lovely dining and BBQ area, covered with a patio where to enjoy outdoor lunches and dinners. A service elevator connects the kitchen with the first floor, this space could be turned into a internal lift.
From the lower garden we get to the dependence, which is distributed on two levels. On the ground floor there are kitchen, dining room and living room ; on the first floor we find a bedroom and bathroom .
Complete the property 20000 mq of land with 130 olive trees and garden. Outdoor parking space and the possibility to make a garage.
Considering that the property has a private well, it is possible to make a 80 mq swimming pool.
