Thanks to its setting in the heart of a famous wine area in the north-east of Florence, the property dominates a scenario so dear to the collective imagination when one thinks of Tuscany, characterized by sweet-rolling hills with endless rows of vineyards and olive groves, dotted with romantic cypresses, to create perfect geometries.
Surrounded by two and a half hectares of grounds, this estate consists of an elegant 623-sqm main house built on the walls of an ancient 13th-century tower, a staff apartment of 65 square meters and a 20-sqm private chapel, for a total internal surface of 1,300 sqm. The centuries-old park around the villa, perfectly maintained and richly planted, also hosts a wonderful Italian garden and, on the back, a splendid swimming pool with mosaics, purified with salt and served by a changing room and winter storage for sunbeds: a perfect oasis to relax in after intense days spent walking around the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany nearby, including Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano and Arezzo.
In this heavenly setting, the main villa is structured on three levels and houses a total of five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
The ground floor opens into an entrance with a lounge, a large storage space and a laundry area. In addition, there are a fitness room and independent access to the keeper's apartment, consisting of a kitchen, a bathroom and two bedrooms.
On the first floor, there is a spacious living room with a fireplace, characterized by elegant ceilings decorated with exposed beams and access to two big terraces, one facing south, towards the park and beyond, over the valley, and a second terrace with a swimming pool on the north side, with a shaded dining area overlooking the Italian garden, paved with pietra serena. Also on this floor, the living area is completed by a kitchen, a dining room and a breakfast room, a study room with a TV corner and a fireplace, a bathroom, and by two double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite.
Going up one floor, we find three bedrooms and a bathroom. An independent area, with access to the panoramic tower, includes a spacious living room with windows, a bathroom, and two bedrooms, one of which has unique wooden trusses.
During the restoration phase, which took place in recent times, the original finishes of the time and the precious ancient materials were recovered with great skill, making this estate a splendid private home, perfect for those seeking privacy and tranquility in the verdant Tuscan countryside.
