Sold Luxurious Villa In Florence With A View Of The Duomo
Historic villas in Florence
Luxury property divided into three apartments
Luxurious historic villa on Via San Leonardo in Florence, one of the most exclusive areas of the city, a stone's throw from Piazzale Michelangelo and only ten minutes from the city center.
The villa is divided into three apartments, totaling 2 thousand square meters of interior and 20 thousand square meters of exterior, with a wonderful view of Florence Cathedral.
Although the majestic villa façade has the architectural features typical of 17th-century villas, rich in Baroque decorations, its origin is older: in the early 15th century it appears to have been owned by the Galilei family, perhaps ancestors of Galileo Galilei.
The villa's scenic facade, facing Via San Leonardo, features a stone staircase with a double pincer ramp that leads to the main floor, while, at ground level, a gateway leads into the central courtyard around which the building is built. The villa is surrounded by a park with Italian-style gardens on the front and one side. A late 17th-century style chapel, separate from the body of the villa, is part of the property.
