ITALY, TUSCANY, FLORENCE, CHIANTI FIORENTINO
The historic villa in Chianti Fiorentino with the main part in a good state of maintenance and where there is still the small private chapel. This dwelling with adjacent service part with cellars and jar store, immersed in Sangiovese vineyards, in the place known all over the world, the symbol of Tuscany, represented by villas, farmhouses, vineyards, olive trees and cypresses – a true bucolic picture.
A short distance from Florence, in the Florentine Chianti area known for the production of wine and olive oil. A dominant position for those who want to experience nature and at the same time be close to the big cities such as Florence and Siena, which can be reached in about half an hour by car. A place loved very much by tourists from all over the world for the journey between the wineries and small farms.
The villa dating back to the 1400s stands in the middle of the land of its property and once through the entrance gate it manifests itself in all its beauty. Surrounded by a garden, it presents itself with the typical form of the Florentine villa. The entrance leads into the characteristic patio with the buildings that frame it – on the right the small private church still consecrated and on the bottom of the patio the jar store. At the bottom of the patio there is the entrance to a wing of the villa, on the ground floor a small apartment for staff which includes the kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. The stone staircase leads to the first floor which leads to a large living room, while the corridor leads to the bedrooms – 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The stone staircase that starts from the patio leads to a characteristic covered terrace which through three glass doors allows you to enter this other wing of the villa. A corridor leads on the right to the room with a characteristic fireplace, while on the right the large kitchen with adjoining living room and three bedrooms and two other bathrooms.
State and finishes
The villa is in fair condition despite the time that has passed has left its mark in some parts of the house, while the structure is generally in good condition. The old stone fireplaces, wooden coffered ceilings and typical Tuscan terracotta floors are of great value.
The land belonging to the villa is about 34 hectares, of which about 8.3 are planted with vines registered in the Chianti Classico register. In a part of the land there is the olive grove, while the part of the land closest to the villa is kept as garden, where a pool can be also constructed
The villa lends itself good to be inhabited by a family who wishes to live in the countryside but a short distance from the city, in a quiet but not isolated area. Another solution could be the development of the villa as a farm/farmhouse, renting rooms to guests and continuing to carry out the agricultural activity.
