Stunning 15th-century Villa For Sale In Florence
Magnificent historic estate in Tuscany
Luxury villa with a park on Florence's hills
This prestigious, luxury estate for sale on Florence's hills was built in the 15th century.
Its ancient origins are, in fact, recorded in a 1427 land registrar which testifies that it was bought as a palace with a tower by the Pucci family who owned the property for more than two centuries. At the end of the 16th century, the family had the current villa built, well-protected and surrounded by a wonderful park of approximately 3 hectares.
From the second half of the 15th century, this luxury estate had many famous owners, including the Serristori and Agostini della Seta families.
The three-storey villa has a U-shaped plan. It is definitely fit for a prince, featuring bright halls with rib vaults, grey-sandstone staircases, a former chapel with barrel vault, and spacious rooms with 16th-century coffered ceilings
To complete this property there are also two, recently renovated buildings divided into independent apartments.
This villa is horizontally divided by two stone frames which not only make it more aesthetically appealing but also provide support to the first-floor windows and give a base to the columns supporting an elegant panoramic loggia.
With its majestic surface area of 4,450 m2, this charming dream estate is certainly a rare pearl on the high-quality real estate scene and it is made even more exclusive by its history, which is intertwined with Florence's. It is no coincidence that, in a recess on one of the corridors at the side of the main entrance, you can find a bust depicting Cosimo II de' Medici. And between two windows of the ground floor there is a walled-in plaque commemorating the visit of Grand Duke Ferdinand III and Archduchess Maria Luisa in April 1820.
The park has woods and lawns and is delimited by a belt of centuries-old cypresses which give privacy but still allow to enjoy the view over the surrounding valleys. The park is also the perfect frame for this estate's lemon conservatory, well, and the outdoor heated swimming pool.
This is a real dream home surrounded by one of the world's most loved landscapes, with the Tuscan hills and their multitudes of vineyards and olive trees in the background.
