Tuscan Historic Villa -Pool, Land, Olives

Located in a stunningly panoramic and well-exposed spot in the picturesque Florentine countryside, this historic villa, perched atop the remnants of a medieval watchtower, is just 3 km from essential amenities and a brief 20-minute drive from Florence’s A1 highway junction. Between 2014 and 2018, the villa underwent a thorough renovation, beautifully preserving its original allure while creating an atmosphere where time seems to pause. The surrounding 5.4 hectares of woodland provide both privacy and tranquillity.

The nearest town, only 3 km away (a 5-minute drive), offers main services, and the historic centre of Florence is less than a half-hour’s drive. The villa’s proximity to the A1 highway also allows for easy exploration of Italy, with many of Tuscany’s well-known towns and cities reachable in just over an hour, including Castellina in Chianti, Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano, and Pienza.

Spanning 548 sqm (5,896 sqft) with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, the villa is spread over three staggered levels, accessible directly from the lower two floors:
– Basement: a storage room, cellar, bedroom, and independent living room with kitchen opening onto a picturesque panoramic loggia.
– Ground floor: a living room, dining room, office space, and spacious kitchen with handmade terracotta floors, alongside three bedrooms each with a private bathroom.
– First floor: a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and exit to a panoramic loggia overlooking the valley.

Close to the villa, there are two storage areas (24 sqm – 258 sqft in total) and an old, ruined barn (44 sqm – 473 sqft) with potential for restoration into a quaint dining/living space.

The restoration was meticulously executed to preserve key historical elements such as stone flooring, chestnut wood windows, the original tower and cellar, ceiling beams, brick vaults, stone walls, and a grand fireplace. This careful attention extends to the furniture and layout, making the villa a standout property. Across its three levels, the villa offers comfort and spaciousness, featuring modern systems, underfloor heating, solar panels, and a wood-burning boiler for efficient hot water supply. A historic tank at the garden entrance, adorned with a boar statue, epitomises the spirit of the Tuscan hills and forests.

The villa is encircled by 5.4 hectares (13.3 acres) of land, home to olive and fruit trees, including cherries and apples. Benefiting from two natural springs, the property is rich in water. The ground level opens to spacious terraces and flat gardens, perfect for outdoor enjoyment in the warmer months. Adjacent to the house is an 8 × 4 m above-ground swimming pool.

The rest of the grounds gently slope on both the front and rear of the villa, offering expansive views over the Valdarno, stretching from Reggello to Vallombrosa.
