Prestigious apartment with exclusive garden
A historic apartment with a unique garden and panoramic tower for sale a stone’s throw from the historic center. In one of the most important streets of the Florentine Oltrarno, we offer this renovated apartment of about 600 square meters divided into several residential units into two levels with an internal lift. The magnificent garden of over 4,000 square meters with a medieval tower is the largest private garden in Florence, after the Giardino della Gherardesca of the Four Seasons Hotel.
This exclusive apartment with a unique historical-artistic imprint was built in the 18th century, home to a former convent of German nuns. Its structure is characterized by large windows, extended corridors, and ancient passages. Although located in the center, this splendid residence enjoys an excellent position, in a green and peaceful setting. The property has been completely renovated and divided into several residential units.
The main 300 sqm apartment is located on the first floor, accessible via an entrance hall. The living area is very bright and consists of two bedrooms. The living room was once a terrace; for this reason, there is still an ancient fountain and an elegant fireplace that was added during the renovation. The second room features frescoes painted in the 20th century and original flooring. Both bedrooms have large French windows leading to a pleasant terrace overlooking the garden and a centuries-old wisteria pergola.
The entrance also leads to a double bedroom for guests. A large corridor follows with further closets, a service bathroom, a laundry area and a large wardrobe, which leads to a large kitchen and two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The ancient medieval chapel of the 300m2 convent is on the ground floor, transformed into a study with wall bookcases. The characteristic elements of the convent have been carefully preserved: the vaulted ceiling together with the columns of the structure offer a suggestive atmosphere. This unit includes a kitchenette and a small bathroom. The French windows give direct access to the internal courtyard of the house.
In addition to the main apartment, there are two other buildings: 2 studio apartments of approximately 30 sqm, both equipped with kitchenettes, bathrooms, bedrooms and a garden view. The complex also includes a large cellar, which could possibly be transformed into an exclusive spa area.
