Full Description: ITALY, TUSCANY, FLORENCE, IMPRUNETA
History, art and beauty are in the air in this amazing Villa right outside Florence, you can almost smell the scent of past times. As you step in and walk along the ‘pietra serena’ staircase or through the statues and olive trees surrounding the property, you can almost imagine the groups of artists, who met here to talk about art and new trends.
This was a place of relaxation and inspiration, but also a family home, where they used to meet all together, to enjoy moments of happiness and sharing.
The total area of the garden is 3,640 square meters and there sits the main Villa, the area of which is 241 square meters on 2 floors. The main entrance is via a glassed loggia as it used to be in the past for luxury villas and, right in front of you, there is the staircase in ‘pietra serena’ (a beautiful local stone), leading to the first floor.
On the ground floor, there is a sitting room on your right, while on the left you access the big living room with direct exit to the veranda and garden, protected by a big oak. On the same floor, there is a kitchen and a bathroom and there is a further exit/entrance to the back garden.
Stepping up to the first floor, there are 4 spacious bedrooms, all with lovely views over the garden on the southern side and towards the countryside on the northern side. A bathroom is there for all the bedrooms; on the opposite side, a lovely small terrace stands above the entrance, overlooking the imposing gate of the property.
Perpendicular to the main villa, there is an annex, once the house of the guardian and keeper of the property. The total area of the annex is about 149 square meters on two floors.
On the ground floor there is a large storage room and cellars, once used to produce olive oil. On the first floor there is a apartment with entrance, kitchen, living room, bathroom and a big bedroom.
At the back of this large annex, there is a paved area with gazebo and oven where you can cook pizza or grilled meat and vegetables for incredible al-fresco dinners.
Included in the property, there are 2 more annexes:
A hen-house of about 8 square meters, which could be easily converted into storage
1. A storage building of about 25 square meters, with very big windows to guarantee light for the artist, who used to retreat there to get the right inspiration and create his works.
The property is surrounded by olive and fruit trees. A unique staircase at the back of the main villa leads you to the upper area of the garden, with a path leading to a ‘secret corner’ with a small table and chairs under the shade of the trees, where you can enjoy a unique view towards Florence.
Still part of the property is a plot of land of about 800 square meters, placed right in front of the main property, where there is an annex of about 39 square meters, used as storage. Also from this side it is possible to enjoy a view over the countryside and the profile of Florence.
The property is in good structural condition; some works are needed to bring it back to its original splendour and make it once again the most beautiful and exclusive villa in the area. It is an ideal property for a big family, where parents and siblings could live separately but sharing the external areas at the same time. On the other hand, you could have a main villa with a big and comfortable guest house for your guests.
The villa is located in a very exclusive area, close to Florence: in the area there are only other prestigious villas, so quiet and privacy are guaranteed.
This Villa is a unique piece of history and elegance and just a few are left around Florence. Its future owner will be a privileged to fully enjoy it.
