Florence Villa a Short Walk from the City
Florence Villa. Situated in one of Florence’s most prestigious districts just above the city nestled amongst hills and olive groves , this classic Italian villa is a rarity on the current market. Its location so close to the city (a 20 min walk) yet in the peaceful countryside is one of the many characteristics that make this property unique.
The property comprises a magnificent 15th century, 9 bedroom, Renaissance villa, accessed via a cypress lined driveway and surrounded by 1.6 hectares of land with an olive grove and woodland. The property also includes an independent gate house which houses a 1 bedroom apartment.
The house was renovated in the 1930’s and then updated by the current owners in the 1980’s. The property offers around 1,150 sqm of floor space in total, which includes the cellars and staff quarters, leaving around 800 sqm of floor space for residential use. The liveable space is manageable and, unlike other similar villas, suitable for for a single family. In total there are currently 9 bedrooms, 2 living rooms/studies and 4 bathrooms, however this property has good potential for a relatively simple redesign and modernisation.
