Historic Villa with Frescoes and Wellness Area on the Hills of Florence
In the immediate Florentine countryside, on the slopes of Monte Morello and near the Medici properties of Castello and Petraia, stands the majestic villa of extraordinary historical, architectural, and artistic interest for sale, with an Italian garden, loggias, and underground baths. The historic property of about 1300 sqm, with 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, dates back to the 14th century, surrounded by greenery with a breathtaking view of Sesto Fiorentino and Florence. From the Renaissance to the contemporary era, the residence was lived in by historical figures and celebrities who particularly appreciated the context, communion with nature, and total privacy. It was the Medicis who had the greatest impact on the structure, adorning the garden with statues and complex water features, and commissioning the best painters and craftsmen of the time. Of the renowned Florentine family, we still find the original coats of arms and names in various forms and at many points of the property. The facade is characterized by an imposing loggia with columns that overlooks the majestic Italian garden. Many of the original details, such as the frescoes, beautiful coffered ceilings, and original floors, have been painstakingly preserved. The property represents a true testimony of history and is in fact protected by the Fine Arts.
The property is accessed via an avenue lined with cypresses. From the entrance hall, under the main arch, you can glimpse the sumptuous garden of the property. On the left, there is a small independent suite while on the right, we reach an area made up of a large kitchen with a pantry, dining room, ironing room/laundry room, and service bathrooms. Continuing along a corridor and separated by a secret winter garden, the majestic reception rooms are arranged. The latter, also accessible from the garden, have high coffered ceilings and includes a dining room, a living room, a large hallway, a living room with a fireplace, a first study, a service bathroom, and access to the lift. In the heart of the villa is the private chapel and the frescoed sacristy. Finally, we find a spacious winter garden, which leads to the office area with its own bathroom, kitchenette, and study area with an open view of the garden.
The sleeping area is located on the upper floor, which has a more intimate atmosphere than the rooms located on the ground floor. Accessible by lift, it has 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, tastefully decorated. A loggia with a coffee corner allows you to share convivial moments, such as breakfast with the family. In addition to the imposing loggia, on the floor, there is access to an independent guest apartment.
The basement, also accessible by lift, houses the ancient baths with their beautiful nymphaeum, decorated with precious statues and fountains. The wellness area on the same level includes a sauna, a Turkish bath, a bathtub, and a jacuzzi. An ancient tunnel carved out of stone opens onto the splendid terraced garden.
The park of the villa is made up of a majestic Italian garden, embellished with flowering shrubs and terracotta decorations. Within the land, we find various relaxation areas and a dining area. The villa is completed by a typical lemon house with more than 30 lemon trees, a comfortably covered garage, and apartments for the service staff.
