ITALY, TUSCANY, FLORENCE, BARBERINO TAVARNELLE
A wonderfully original Leopoldina-style farmhouse enjoying exceptional views over Chianti countryside.
Just 30 km from Florence and close to several market towns, the farmhouse dates back to the 16th century and has been in the same Florentine family for centuries. It is currently a rental villa and offers large communal spaces for dining and resting, a panoramic 12 m x 6 m pool and a wellness area.
The property is set in fenced garden and land of about 3 hectares and offers unusual flat grass areas ideal for children with some olive and fruit trees. There are rose and wisteria-clad pergolas around the property for al-fresco dining.
There is an independent apartment up external stairs with a bedroom, bathroom and living area and in addition there are several cellar and storage rooms on the ground floor which could be developed further.
An annexe of about 50 sqm offers further accommodation or an all-purpose recreation room with bathroom.
The main house of about 840 sqm currently comprises 5 bedrooms. 4 bathrooms and several large living rooms both on the first floor with a colombaia (dovecote) room with bathroom above and on the ground floor in the beautiful barn area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting room. From here one can enjoy the garden areas for recreation, barbecues and other group activities.
Parking area set away from the house.
