ITALY, TUSCANY, PISTOIA, MONTECATINI TERME
Wonderful 17th century residence which belonged to one of the most influential patrician families in Florence.
The villa of about 2500 square meters is immersed in its park of over 5000 square meters with large swimming pool in travertine and a majestic annex.
In 2001 the current owners began the restoration work aimed at preserving the characteristics of the original structure and the result obtained is incredibly beautiful.
Located in a strategic position for reaching all services and a short distance from famous Montecatini Terme and close to the great cultural capitals such as Florence and Pisa, which are about 45 minutes by car. In less than half an hour you can reach the airports of Pisa and Florence. Immersed in the quiet of the Tuscan countryside, the villa offers maximum privacy and tranquillity.
Leaving the main street, you reach the imposing private gate that opens the doors of this wonderful historic home to us. The main villa of about 2500 square meters is on three floors.
The ground floor is a succession of large and bright halls with high ceilings, the well-equipped kitchen is able to comfortably accommodate the whole family, a study area and a bar complete this part of the historic home.
On the first, second and third floors there is the sleeping area with its eighteen wonderful large bedrooms, each with its own comfortable private bathroom.
A short distance from the main villa there is the former barn which has been transformed into a residential area for guests. The large heights also characterize this part where a large living and sleeping area has been created.
Walking in the large Italian garden, among the shadows of cypresses and mulberry trees, it is easy to find your own serenity. Water features games and perfectly preserved ancient statues are the background to natural paths where flowers and fruit trees create patches of lovely color.
The swimming pool is completely surrounded by the hills of the Val di Nievole.
Large covered spaces are equipped for dining in the shade of the ancient trees that create a very pleasant atmosphere.
The elegance of this property is the measured luxury of a welcoming and warm historic residence. In the rooms, small details tell the story of this residence in harmony with past and present. Warm wood is the flooring, and the exposed beams and the ancient fireplaces evoke magical atmospheres. The ancient terracotta floors for the living area, the marble and the natural lime workmanship, blend perfectly with modern services and comforts. The outside is perfectly plastered but native stone has also been used internally and externally.
The historic villa is suitable as an impressive residence but also as a main residence able to accommodate a family wishing to live in a sophisticated but also practical and functional environment close to all the main services. It is also perfect as a luxury hotel of the highest level for demanding clients in search of history and comfort.
