Property Description

A classic renaissance property originally a church dating back to the 11th century, converted into a residence during the 14th century. Located in Fiesole, a quiet and prestigious suburb of Florence offering the peaceful Tuscan countryside and the vibrant buzz of Florence.

The property combines classic Italian architecture with modern restoration. It possesses unique characteristics due to its prominent history with a range of different types of architecture telling a story of a rich and complicated history.

The 550 sq.m main villa is distributed over three floors. The ground floor comprises of a lounge with antique stone fireplace and high vaulted ceilings, a formal dining room with a chestnut beamed ceiling, a kitchen giving direct access onto a lovely covered veranda with views over the gardens and a series of other rooms including bathrooms. Also on the ground floor, we find the remarkable church dating back to the renaissance period which features original frescoes and unique architecture. The church has been deconsecrated and can therefore be used for residential use, thus creating a living space of particular uniqueness and beauty. The first and second floors offer five bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has an independent entrance via a stairway leading to the gardens.

Although not detached, we are able to describe the church as a possible secondary accommodation as it may be used as such. The space available offers many opportunities and one may create up to two bedrooms if this space was converted wisely.

The property is set on 5 hectares of grounds of which 2 hectares are fenced and classified as private 'no hunting' land, guaranteeing privacy and tranquility. There is plenty of quiet places to sit and enjoy the surroundings with a charming patio that surrounds the property which leads down onto classic garden which further leads onto olive groves and orchards. The estate produces an excellent biological olive oil.

Although no pool has currently been built, the owner wisely installed plant work and systems in a dedicated area perfect for an in-ground pool. The majority of the work has been done with the network and plumbing already in place.
