Florence Tuscany city centre property for sale
Properties of this size, location, condition and quality in Florence city centre are rarely available and this prestigious historical building also has private parking and easy access located a minute or two from the train station of Santa Maria Novella and close to all the sites, facilities and amenities that Florence is world famous for.
This Florence Tuscany city centre property comprises a large historical building (2,694 sqm – 28,977 sqft) split on the inside into two nice villas spanning five floors (basement, ground floor, mezzanine floor, first floor and second floor).
The villa A is 1,451 sqm (15,613 sqft) wide and is fitted with a 51 sqm (549 sqft) loggia and some terraces for a total of 52 sqm (559 sqft).
The villa B is 1,243 sqm (13,374 sqft) wide and is fitted with a 76 sqm (818 sqft) loggia and some terraces for a total of 77 sqm (828 sqft).
The seperate villas could be easily reunited to make one property overall.
The villa is a living piece of history in the heart of Florence. On the outside, the buildings have a very neat and regular façade, with geometrical windows and terraces and two archways leading inside (currently closed by glass doors which could be replaced with something more in line with the building style).
On the inside, the historical nature of the building is even more noticeable, thanks to the numerous decorations. Ceilings are covered in frescoes and paintings framed by painted architectures, floors are connected by stone staircases with decorated balustrades and in several rooms we can still see the stone fireplaces once used to warm the building. Skylights give a light and airy feel to the staircases. Floors are covered in various tiling, the most common being graniglia and parquet.
The property is located along a road in the historical centre of Florence, a short distance from the Santa Maria Novella train station, and has a private 925 sqm parking area accessed via a metal gate. Around the building are several tiled walkways leading to the entrances on the rear.
