Two luxury apartments located on the hills north of Florence set within a 15th-century historic villa, with an incredible views of the historic city centre.
Basic services are located at the base of the hill (2km) and can be reached by car in just over five minutes. The centre of Florence can be reached in about fifteen minutes.
The two apartments are totally independent. The larger 540 sq.m apartment has been entirely renovated whilst retaining elegant original features. It comprises a double reception hall with parquet flooring and an 18th-century fireplace, a library and a cinema corner, an elegant marble-floored gallery leading to a large eat-in kitchen, dining room and office space, 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms including a 40 sq.m caretaker's apartment with living area, kitchenette and independent access. The bathrooms are tiled and furnished with design pieces by the Florentine Riccardo Barthel. Outside is the 70 sq.m loggia perfect for outdoor dining.
The smaller 150 sq.m apartment needs complete restoration. It currently consists of 4 large rooms with finely frescoed 4 m ceilings. Additionally in the basement is the 60 sq.m cellar consisting of a large room with storage featuring a fireplace.
Outside is the 3500 sq.m Italian garden with incomparable views of the city of Florence, dominated by Brunelleschi's dome.
Illustrious guests who stayed at and/or visited the villa include the French statesman and historian Adolphe Thiers and the American writer Mark Twain.
