[strong][/strong] [strong][/strong] Classic italian villa dating back to the 15th century renaissance period, located in Florence's most prestigious districts just above the city. The property is situated in a peaceful countryside position although it is only a 20 minute walk to the city making this property unique.The villa has been restored and renovated in the 1930's and then partially updated in the 1980's by the current owners. The complete villa offers around 1150 sq metres of floor space which include the cellars and staff quarters, leaving around 800 Sq metres of floor space for residential use. This residential use is another unique point of the villa, as many comparable villas in the area since divided into portions or apartments are much larger and sometimes unsuitable for a single family.The 800 sq.m living space is distributed over two floor although there is a third floor in the Belvedere or tower. In total there arecurrently 9 bedrooms, several living rooms/studies, 6 bathrooms, kitchen, loft/attic area (renovated into storage rooms) balconies and terraces. The property has good potential for a relatively simple redesign and modernisation.A villa also has a large cellar/cantina and a limonaia leading onto the garden. Additionally there is a self contained staff quarters in the villa, a gatehouse with ground floor garage space, and a one bedroom first floor apartment with lounge and property is accessed via impressive entrance gate into a cypress tree lined driveway leading towards the front door of the villa. A well kept lawn surrounds the villa (front and rear). The rear gardens include a terrace and olive groves. Below the olive grove there is a forest and then Florence.Restaurants and shops can be reached in 5 minutes and the airport is 25 minutes away.
