VILLA FOR SALE IN FLORENCE
This outstanding luxury villa for sale in Florence, originally a lemon conservatory belonging to a historic 19t century villa, was converted in 1975.
It is located on the hills outside the ancient city walls, just a few steps from the famous Boboli garden and the town centre.
The outside of the building has not been altered dramatically; in fact the new project has kept the main original architectural features preserving the length of the building, which stretches towards the heart of the city, giving the impression of being part of the town centre, whilst surrounded by greenery, as if in the middle of the countryside.
The interiors of this luxury residence are very simple; the layout of all rooms is very similar, which makes the spaces rather versatile according to the use that is made of them and to the choice of furniture. The spaces are open, enriched by great openings on the outside that allow for great perspectives and views of the outside.
The interiors feature 600 m2 of floor space on three different levels where the ceilings vary from 2.40 to 3.00 metres in height. Each level of the building has access to the garden which has a terraced layout.
The two principal levels of the villa, that share a common space, are characterized by three living areas, one with an open fireplace, one at full height, connecting the two floors, and a third 170 m2 room with a spectacular view overlooking the city of Florence.
There is also a 6.50 m2 window which incloses a spectacular view of the Brunelleschi Dome, Palazzo Vecchio, the church of Santo Spirito and the city of Florence, right up to the hills of Fiesole which is true masterpiece . This prestigious property for sale includes 5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, a large kitchen, a study/library, a second study and many other utility and storage rooms.
