5 Bedroom Villa | Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Property contact details
The Villa is 15 minutes from the heart of Florence., on a quiet back road just off one of the main roads leading into the centre. The villa enjoys a private and peaceful setting only minutes away from historic centre of Florence. The villa is flanked by olive groves and vineyards, so whilst being relatively central, one also enjoys a countryside setting.
The majority of Florence's main attractions can be viewed from the villa, such as The Duomo, the Val d'Arno, Fiesole, and the Appenines. The villa enjoys an elevated position providing breathtaking views, privacy and security.
The villa dates back to the middle ages when the original tower was built. During the renaissance period villas in this area were chosen as an ideal place of retreat by many of Florentines noble families, and it was the Strozzi family who first converted the property into a Villa. Since then, the villa has had a series of illustrious owners.
A renowned art historian described the villa as "a real Florentine villa," a perfect example of the 15th century palagio that wealthy Florentines built as a complement to their urban dwellings.
The villa and grounds were dramatically renovated and restored in the 1990s, by the current owners. With a careful eye to historic accuracy matched by luxurious, modern amenities. The interior and the exterior have been completely over-hauled and upgraded according to the highest standards. All historic elements, such as rare intarsia inlay doors and period beamed ceilings were painstakingly restored.
The villa is approximately 874 sq. m of living space on a 4470 sq. m plot. It has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 3 story passenger elevator, fully walled compound with high-security infrastructure, garage with space for 4 cars, extensive (and rare!) on-street parking, and garden house with limonaia and additional living space
