5 Bedroom Villa for Sale

Ref: 83922077

€ 2,190,000

Historic villa located in the scenic Florentine countryside with panoramic countryside views. Situated just 3 km from basic amenities and a short 20-minute drive from the A1 highway junction of Florence. The historic centre of Florence is less than a half an hour drive away.

The 548 sq.m villa was built atop the remains of a medieval watchtower. The property underwent meticulous renovation from 2014 to 2018, preserving its original charm and capturing a unique atmosphere where time appears to stand still. The restoration focused on maintaining and respecting key features, such as the stone flooring, chestnut wood windows, the tower, cellar, ceiling beams, brick vaults, stone walls, and a grand fireplace. The artistic touch extends to the furniture and spatial design, making the villa truly distinctive. It is distributed over 3 levels and comprises a living room, dining room, office space, spacious kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms including a master bedroom leading to a panoramic loggia overlooking the valley. The basement offers a storage room, cellar and an independent apartment with bedroom and living room with kitchen opening onto a charming panoramic loggia.

A short distance from the property there are two storage rooms and a 44 sq.m old ruined barn that could be restored and converted into a small dining/living area.

Modern comforts include underfloor heating, solar panels and wood-burning boiler for hot water, enabling energy efficiency.

The 5.6 hectare woodland surrounding the property ensures privacy and quiet. The garden entrance features a historic tank decorated with the statue of a hog, the staple animal of the Tuscan hills and forests. The garden also offers a spring of water and olive trees.
