Elegant luxury villa in a panoramic position for sale on the hills of the Florentine Chianti, in a wonderful dominant position just ten minutes from Porta Romana.
The first nucleus of the historic residence dates back to 1100 AD, when thanks to its panoramic position it was used as a Watchtower. In 1500 A.D. it takes the name of "Villa Rinascimentale". Inside the Villa an accurate and careful restoration has been carried out, partly conservative but largely functional: to restore the original parts that still exist (such as the coffered ceilings) to new splendor and to intervene with masonry works of a high architectural and stylistic level. The house has a total internal surface of about 700 square meters and is arranged on three levels. The entrance to the house is well outlined by a main colonnade covered in cipollino marble and paved with original cocciopesto, like every room on the ground floor. On the entrance hall opens a large living room overlooking the lush garden and the characteristic pergola with splendid wisteria flowers. Also on this level we find a bright double living room and a large study, with a dining room and a central atrium with glass doors, all articulated around a typical Renaissance courtyard. The surfaces of the walls of this floor, as well as the upper one and the tower, are made with the encaustic technique.
An elegant spiral staircase leads to the upper floor, where the following bedrooms are located: four double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and the characteristic tower with a 360 degree panoramic view of the Chianti hills and Florence.
The latter can be used as a study or as an additional bedroom. The basement includes a very spacious professional kitchen. Since the house extends over several levels, from the basement there is access, through an external door, to a pleasant pergola under which you can eat. Next to the kitchen there is another room used as a dining room, with a barrel ceiling, with direct access to the spacious pantry. Finally, an access door allows entry to a spacious cellar which is also connected via another door directly to the external driveway. The property includes an outbuilding on two levels, completely independent from the villa, consisting of kitchen, living-dining room, and sleeping area with a bedroom and a bathroom.
The property, completely fenced, is finally equipped and completely surrounded by a lush garden of about 2 hectares used as an olive grove with about one hundred and thirty trees as well as a large parking area for the owner's vehicles and any guests. Inside the garden, the existence of and a large and sunny plateau bordered by dense hedges makes it easy to build a swimming pool of considerable size.
Those who want an exclusive property in Florence, without having to give up the privacy and tranquility of the countryside, can find their dimension in this charming historic villa.
