Built in the early 19th century by a leading Florentine architect this prestigious villa is located within easy reach of the centre of Florence and its airport yet in a quiet rural location with beautiful panoramic views across the unspoilt Chianti countryside.
The villa, accessed down a 1km private cypress tree lined drive, is set within a 100 hectare estate including an infinity swimming pool, formal gardens designed by a famous Italian landscape architect, woodland, a lake, an ornamental pond, 6 hectares of olive groves, a lodge, agricultural buildings and two guest apartments. The property is ideal for entertaining yet very private due to its secluded location. The main front door of the villa leads into the grand entrance hall with staircase and has doors off to the formal reception areas with large windows overlooking the formal gardens and magnificient views. The ground floor also comprises a large country-style kitchen, formal dining room, media and music rooms. The main staircase leads to the staff quarters on the mezzanine floor and on up to the main bedrooms on the first floor where there are 6 bedroom suites (5 with bathrooms), the majority of which have large windows looking out onto formal gardens. All the suites are attractively furnished and decorated. One library and one reception room. Stairs to second floor currently used as children’s quarters providing 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
