Florence City Centre Townhouse

Just a short walk from the Piazza del Carmine is this beautifully restored townhouse with a private garden for sale in the quiet and peaceful district of San Frediano in Florence’s old city centre. Renovated in 2020, the home is a charming Art Nouveau building with four bedrooms, a light-filled living area plus a small separate gym and a 40 square metre private garden.
In addition to being an ideal private residence, if you are looking to live in Florence’s historic centre, the house is also a great option for vacation rentals; in fact, the current owners rent it out to visitors and vacationers with great success.
With fewer tourists and hence quieter and more peaceful, the San Frediano neighbourhood is still one of Florence’s most authentic locations and amenities are conveniently close by. Outside of Florence many of Tuscany’s historic towns and cities such as Greve in Chianti, Colle di Val d’Elsa, San Gimignano, Arezzo, and Siena) can reached in less than two hours.

The townhouse has a surface area of 210 sqm – 2,260 sqft with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and has three floors, connected by an internal staircase.
Entering the ground floor from the street, there is a small entrance hall that leads to a small service bathroom under the staircase and the living area consisting of a large double sitting room with a dining area and kitchen. From here one exits to the back garden,  with a lovely paved patio ideal for relaxation and al fresco dining.
Going up to the first floor you reach the sleeping area of the house, consisting of four spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. One of the rooms features a small private terrace overlooking the garden. In the hallway is a small closet.
Going up further, you reach the attic, consisting of three storage rooms plus the technical room for the boiler and facilities.
The house was entirely renovated in 2020 paying particular attention to energy efficiency when it was decided to supplement the classic natural gas system (which is used only in the production of domestic hot water) with a high-performance heat pump that allowed the property to reach the A2 level of the new energy classification.

The private garden (40 sqm – 430 sqft) is enclosed by walls on the two long sides and two buildings on the short sides. Just outside the kitchen is a patio with a shade awning for outdoor dining and breakfasts, while the garden is crossed by three paved walkways leading to the outbuilding. Two fountains, climbing plants and roses decorate the whole.

Crossing the garden leads to a small dependence (28 sqm – 301 sqft, 1 bathroom), currently used as a gym/fitness area with a bathroom and dressing room.

The townhouse, thanks to its very convenient location in the heart of Florence and very close to Piazza del Carmine, means that you can reach many of the most interesting landmarks in the city on foot.
