Property Description

Unique country villa located in the most prestigious suburb of Florence offering the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside as well as the vibrant buzz of Florence. The property dates back to the 14th century when it was most likely used as a military watchtower. It was converted into a residential villa around the 16th century and has beautiful countryside views.

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 of 500 sq.m is distributed over three floors and is accessed via the main gates through an internal courtyard leading into a traditional entrance hallway. The property may also be accessed directly from the garage leading into the kitchen area. The ground floor comprises a lounge with antique stone fireplace and high vaulted ceilings, a formal dining room with a chestnut beamed ceiling, library/study, a kitchen, laundry area, en suite bedroom and a private chapel. There is also a bright veranda which leads out onto the rear courtyard. The dining room, lounge, bedroom, and study all lead out onto either private patios or courtyards. The first floor comprises five bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms and the master has a private terrace. There is a further bedroom in the tower or Belvedere.

Additionally there is a housekeeper's 90 sq.m self contained apartment comprising a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a detached lounge/sitting room.

Outside are the impressive grounds including the main front courtyard with shaded seating area, the rear loggia leading out onto a terrace, a greenhouse, kitchen garden, storage area and the beautifully landscaped gardens with terrace and swimming pool. area.

The property is located off a quiet country lane and is only 5 minutes from the centre of Florence.
