Fiesole, Splendid Farmhouse That Belonged To Dante Alighieri
Elegant Tuscan residence on the hills behind Fiesole, holiday resort of the Alighieri family
Old estate for sale with a park and olive grove a few kilometres from Florence's city centre
In a high position on the hills behind Fiesole, just fifteen kilometres from Florence's city centre, there is this stunning 13th-century farmhouse for sale inside the Antinori di Monteloro farmstead.
Entirely made of stone in the most typical Tuscan architectural style, this property boasts a prestigious past: present in some important historical publications, it was the favourite holiday resort of the Florentine Alighieri family, who used to spend pleasant holidays here.
1.2 hectares of fenced grounds frame the property, offering a delightful 5,000-sqm lawn park where there is a greenhouse and a big rose garden, 4,900 sqm of olive groves and a 2,100-sqm forestal area. The breadth of the farmstead that houses this property for sale offers the chance to extend it further.
The internal surface, equal to 650 sqm, includes a beautiful 350-sqm main house and, in an adjacent position, a two-storey, finely-restored annex of 190 sqm, featuring two living rooms, a kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two terraces.
On the ground floor of the main house, the entrance leads into a living area with a lounge and a dining room, a kitchen with a laundry room, a study, and a bathroom. On the first floor, a second living room leads to three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a wardrobe. Going to the top floor, we enter a typical tower, used as a bedroom.
Among the property's well-preserved fine period finishes we find doors, stairs and many of the floors made with centuries-old wooden beams, which blend well with the rustic style of the interiors, combined with latest generation comforts to make the living room even more pleasant, including a modern home automation system with remote control.
For lovers of leisure, a project already submitted for the installation of an outdoor pool will allow you to create a small external oasis of relaxation.
With its splendid panoramic position and breathtaking views over Fiesole's wonderful valley, an authentic treasure trove of historic sites, churches and parks, this ancient estate for sale is the ideal home to forget about the daily stress.
