This restored house near Florence for sale is located in the beautiful countryside above Poggio Imperiale, one of Florence’s most prestigious locations and just minutes from the city centre.
The property, originally a large limonaia, has been restored and furnished by a renowned international interior designer, who has created a stunning home by combining traditional local building materials and architecture with modern techniques and design.
The Florentine house, which is accessed via a drive way lined with cypress trees, consists of the main villa and two separate guest houses surrounded by olive groves and green fields. With 4,000m² of private grounds, the restored property offers privacy and a secluded countryside environment despite being very close to the city.
The main villa
The entrance hall leads to a spacious open plan living room with an elegant, antique stone fireplace, dining room, a fully fitted kitchen, gym, laundry area and an ensuite double bedroom. The many large windows which run the length of the villa ensures the house benefits from lots of natural light.
The outdoor terrace, which also runs the full length of the villa, offers superb views and is the perfect setting for al-fresco dining.
On the first floor are two further double bedrooms and one bathroom. One of the bedrooms features a mezzanine and both bedrooms enjoy high wooden beamed ceilings.
The two guest houses
On the grounds are two independent buildings which can be used as guest houses or as accommodation for teenagers wanting their own space or as staff accommodation.
One of the guesthouses is a restored private chapel which makes for a very unique and characteristic guesthouse with many original features such as beautiful ‘stucco’ wall decorations and original tiled mosaic floors. The chapel guesthouse offers kitchen, small dining area, lounge, a double bedroom, bathroom and a utility room. The total living area is 60m2.
The second guesthouse is a cottage with open plan kitchen-lounge-diner and a double bedroom and bathroom. The cottage which measures circa 40m2 enjoys a private terrace and garden and good privacy.
The restored house near Florence for sale sits in circa 1 acre of private land with olive groves, gardens, terraces and a dedicated parking area. A permission to install a swimming pool in front of the villa has been granted.
The restored house near Florence for sale sits right on the border between town and country which means you can enjoy the best of both worlds, a private countryside setting with beautiful Tuscan views only minutes away from the historic centre of Florence and all it has to offer.
