Beautiful residence in Chianti, ten minutes away from Florence by car and perfect for whoever wants to live right outside the city but is still able to go downtown in little to no time and enjoy the privacy of the countryside.
Inside a beautiful private fenced park there is a splendid Villa that was built by a noble Florentine family in 1500. The Villa is four stories high, composed of one basement and three stories above ground, and has a turret that gives a 360-degree view of the surrounding countryside. Along a beautiful avenue there is a forest of oak trees and bamboo, further along there is a garden with secular trees, beyond which the recognizable Villa rises with its typical architecture from the Florentine structures of the XVI century.
Through a driveway, in the front, we can access a beautiful main entrance climbing up a staircase made out of macigno store, that leads to two living rooms, to a studio, and to the kitchen; through the other side entrance situated next to the pool, the kitchen is directly accessible.
The rooms on the ground floor maintain the originality of their time with their ancient Impruneta terracotta floors and its decorated coffered ceilings. In the 2015 meticulous remodeling, that involved the whole property, there had been added high-quality upholstery in accordance with the colors of the materials used.
The kitchen, with its small dimensions, is furnished in a classic style and is equipped with all kinds of comforts: from professional burners to the Piazzetta oven for pizza and bread, to the fireplace for grilling; space is also provided for a waste shredder.
Going up to the second floor, at the top of the historical ladder, the villa opens up to its finest rooms. There are two double bedrooms each containing an en-suite bathroom and the master bedroom has access to two bathrooms and two closets. In addition, there is also an extraordinary original library that dates to 1600 and can serve as a studio or antechamber. Through a beautiful living room, opens a game of stairs, ceilings, and vaults that enhance the originality of the structure, highlighting the balcony that leads to an attic.
Here in the attic we find a little living room, a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a bathroom. From the living room on the third floor you can finally access the tower from where you can delight yourself in a 360-degree view of the whole property including the garden with pool, vineyard, and olive groves.
Completing the property: a guesthouse currently destinated to house the caretaker, a garage with technical rooms of about 200mq for at least four car parking spaces, land for about 2ha.
The maintenance status of the Villa is excellent; the original materials like flooring, doors, ceilings have been carefully restore; the bathrooms are completely new; each room has been embellished with precious finished such as the original chandeliers of Murano.
