The main entrance to the villa through an armoured door at the back leads to a large entrance hall with a majestic staircase with wooden steps and wrought iron railing embellished with a large window decorated with lilies. Ground floor, enriched by classic-style arches and boiserie, completely dedicated to a living area – TV and relaxation area, reading area and dining area with access to the porch always thought in the way to enjoy an outdoor lunch or dinner with a wonderful view of the center of Florence.

In the less visible part there is also a wooden staircase that connects all the floors of the house.
Going up the majestic staircase from the hall you reach the first floor totally dedicated to the sleeping area. On the sides there are two bedrooms for the children, each with a double bed, its own en-suite bathroom and wardrobe. While the central section is dedicated to the main suite of over 100 sqm, double wardrobes, large bathroom with tub and shower, bedroom with custom-made wardrobes along the entire length, relaxation area and finally a study that is separated from the bedroom by a beautiful wooden door decorated with lilies and which can also be accessed from the hall.

The third floor is made up of an open plan area and is currently divided into three parts – the central part with access to the pocket terrace is designed as a bar, TV area on one side and a spa area on the other. Serving this level are a closet and a bathroom, and it is easy to convert this floor into a further bedroom with its own outdoor space.
