SPLENDID VILLA FOR SALE IN FLORENCE
The origins of this splendid luxury villa, that was originally a farmhouse, date back to the 1400’s: proof of this is are some ancient ceramics that have been found in the cellars during recent renovations. But in the 1700’s this imposing villa becomes an aristocratic manor house and an extra floor is added to the building. Further architectural improvements are constructed over the past century, transforming the style of the building into neo-classic , with the addition of an ulterior turret ornate with columns and composite capitals.
All around is a wonderful park of three hectares surrounding the property that allows to fully appreciate the tranquillity and peacefulness of the countryside, even if very close to the city. Here one can admire beautifully manicured hedges, a large swimming-pool, the very original private chapel, a charming private lake with pink and yellow water-lilies and lotus flowers.
From the garden we access the surrounding fields where one can go for relaxing walks reaching the near oak and pine wood forest.
This Florence property on three levels extends over a total floor surface of 1300 m2. There are 7 master bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, where one can appreciate the detail and care in the furnishings: white marble in the bathrooms, precious wood that create geometric designs, wide windows with a view overlooking the park, Jacuzzi tubs.

Florence villa for sale
Tuscany FlorenceTuscany –Florence. Florence is the location of this luxury apartment in and is universally recognized as a city of art, thanks to its incalculable works of art which transform the city’s streets and piazzas into a vibrant open-air museum.
The heart of Florence is Piazza del Duomo with the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (better known as simply “Duomo”) with its imposing Brunelleschi dome next to the Giotto’s bell tower and the Baptistery of St. John, with its celebrated bronze doors.
The River Arno, which runs through the middle of the city, has played a role in Florentine history on a par with that of the city’s residents. Over the centuries, the people of Florence have maintained a love-hate relationship with the Arno, which has provided the city with both commercial advantage and disastrous floods. The most famous of the bridges crossing the river, the Ponte Vecchio, is adorned with jewellers shops housed in small cabins attached to the bridge, a construction technique found nowhere else in the world. Carrying Vasari’s noble corridor from one bank to the other, the Ponte Vecchio was also the only Florentine bridge to make it through the Second World War without suffering any damage.
The left bank of the Arno, or the “Oltrarno”, is an area that still provides a feel, amidst its centuries-old crafts shops, of the Florence of yesteryear, as described by Vasco Pratolini and Marcello Vannucci.
