Period estate for sale near Florence
Stunning period villa in Florence's side of Chianti
This wonderful luxury villa for sale is in the province of Florence, in the “Alta Val di Sieve” area: it is located in a hilly setting running along the so-called ''Strada dei Vini ChiantiRufina e Pomino''.
Surrounded by a very green, quite and private area, this villa includes a big private garden measuring 2,500 m2, which is terraced and adorned with centuries-old trees.
The villa's main body, built at the end of the 19th century, features frescoed ceilings and Art-Nouveau details; it was probably added when another part of the estate, probably a Medieval tower, was being extended.
This estate measures approximately 700 m2 and features three floors above grounds and some cellars.
The complex is currently composed of four separate residential units, which are not bound by the Fine Arts Office but are subject to preservation and restoration works.
The main area, which is already arranged as a tourist accommodation facility, has been completely renovated and also includes some cellars and a loft, bringing the total number of rooms to twenty-one: on the ground floor there are two halls with fireplaces, frescoes or decorations, a study with a spacious entryway, a kitchen with a grey-sandstone sink and a marble one, two bathrooms and a room with exposed wooden beams on the ceiling.
The first floor, which can be accessed from a lovely gray-sandstone staircase, is home to four double bedrooms, all with private bathroom, a study and a corridor connecting the rooms. The floors of the bathrooms, which are also frescoed and decorated, have been made with Neapolitan tiles of the Vetri kind, which are some original 19th-century pieces.
This part of the estate features modern systems, extraordinary comforts, frescoes and decorations that have been accurately cleaned and restored.
There are then an apartment on the ground and first floors, in the front part of the estate, an apartment on the upper-ground floor, and a garage/ former stables which have been restored to their raw state.
The property also includes a small plot of land measuring approximately 230 m2 which is located outside the garden, along a stream.
The surroundings offer a big variety of leisure activities such as routes of natural interest, horseriding or hiking trails, or competitive fishing and sailing in the lakes nearby, a golf course and racetrack are just a short distance away while Florence is just 35 kilometres from here.
