Florence, Tuscany, Italy
Beautiful property with a majestic villa situated on the hills of Florence, near Fiesole, offering magnificent views of the city. This historic property comprises two villas, with the main house built by a renowned Swiss architect and painter in the late 1800s and completed in the early 1900s in an eclectic Renaissance style. Nestled among tall cypress trees on the Fiesole hills, the villa enjoys a highly panoramic and private position, surrounded by a large private estate of one hectare enclosed by sturdy walls and fences, ensuring complete security and maximum privacy. The property is adorned with splendid loggias, balconies, and spacious terraces overlooking the historic center of Florence. Both buildings within the estate have separate entrances from different roads. One entrance comes from the Fiesole side, providing direct access to the main villa, while the other entrance comes from the Florence city side, allowing access to both the main villa and the smaller one. The main villa spans multiple floors, focused around an evocative period staircase. The main floor features a spacious double living room with stone portals and original painted coffered ceilings, a billiard room with an authentic stone fireplace, a beautiful dining room, a kitchen, and a well-preserved vintage library connected to an elegant study. The upper floor, accessible via a stone staircase adorned with characteristic period decorations, comprises the sleeping area, consisting of six double bedrooms and six bathrooms, along with generous closet spaces. The basement boasts an ancient kitchen, cellars, and numerous spacious rooms currently used as storage and staff accommodations. The basement area has the potential to be transformed into a cinema room, a spa, or an indoor pool, offering splendid views and a 100-square-meter loggia and terrace with a 360-degree panorama of the entire city of Florence. Within the one-hectare property is a second villa of an additional 250 square meters, with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and its own terraces and balconies with breathtaking views. Both villas are centrally located, overlooking the stunning Fiesole hills, adorned with terraces, open parking spaces, and picturesque paths amid lush vegetation. The property also includes two private garages and an additional annex/limonaia near the main villa, suitable for guests or staff.
