Unique standalone house with 2 hectares of private grounds just 200 metres from the historic centre of Florence.
This Tuscan villa was restored by its architect owner in the 1960s into a striking residence with open plan living, four bedrooms and magnificent views of the Duomo.
The accommodation in the property is arranged whereby the bedrooms, bathrooms and study areas are found on the ground floor. Each of these rooms opens onto the charming rear walled garden. In total there are 3 bedrooms on this floor; two bedrooms sharing one bathroom and the master bedroom with ensuite facilties. The study and studio areas on the ground floor could easily be converted to create additional bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also a cosy cinema room to the rear with adjoining storage room.
The first floor is accessed via a modern stairway which leads directly into the impressive main reception room running the length of the property. The space, with its high ceiling and airy ambience, is punctuated by different seating areas, a dining area and balcony opening to the floor below. The centrepiece of the room is the floor to ceiling window from which the breathtaking view of Florence’s Duomo and the surrounding landscape can be appreciated. Leading off this principal room one finds a kitchen, guest WC and two terraces for enjoying the views and sunshine at different times of day.
In addition to the main residence there is an adjacent one bedroom guest/staff apartment with private entrance leading off the parking area.
Gardens & Grounds
The property sits within a private, gated enclosure. The main entrance is shared with the other properties within the enclosure but the immediate 2 hectares of land around the property are wholly private to the property.
