Description of buildings

Surrounded by pretty, shady grounds with an olive grove with around 100 trees, the property comprises a large period villa measuring around 700 sq.m in total, divided into the main residence and a separate apartment, and various extra buildings with a further combined surface area of 175 sq.m in total.

 

The villa

The structure of the villa follows the incline of the land and has four floors, plus a basement area used as a cellar.

It is currently divided into the main residence and a separate apartment, however, thanks to an internal staircase connecting the two, it could easily be converted back into one house.

The main entrance to the property leads to the hallway of the main residence, which is on the raised ground floor. On this floor, the large living space is divided into a kitchen with two pantries, an informal dining room, dining room, living room, study/TV room and a bathroom.

On the floor above, there are the sleeping quarters with master bedroom, with walk-in-wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms also with wardrobe and private bathroom, and an area currently being used as an ironing room but which could also be used as a study or an extra bedroom.

Further upstairs, there is the attic floor with mezzanine, the wardrobe space, a store cupboard and an area which could be turned into a bathroom.

On the ground floor there is a laundry room, dressing room (or guest bedroom), and bathroom, and two large cellars on the basement floor.

  

Guest apartment .

The property has a second driveway which leads to the entrance to the guest apartment, which is all on the ground floor of the villa and is divided into a living room, sitting room with fireplace, kitchen, two bedrooms with dressing room and private bathroom, two store cupboards and another bathroom.

The apartment used to be part of the main house, and the original internal connection could be restored if desired.

 

Conservatory

Next to the main house, in its own building measuring around 50 sq.m, there is the conservatory: a pretty space with large windows where, even in colder weather, you can spend a few pleasant hours enjoying the  light and the greenery of the grounds.

 

Annexes

Not far from the villa there are also the following additional buildings, with a total surface area of around 175 sq.m:

-       The lemon-house measuring 34 sq.m in total;

-       Two greenhouses, measuring 49 and 12 sq.m;

-       Four small spaces used as utility areas measuring 42 sq.m in total;

-       The cellar, measuring 37 sq.m in total.

State and finishing

The house has been completely restored, with high quality finishings, and is in excellent condition. Inside it is simple and modern, perfectly balanced with some of the unique architectural features of the original building which have been maintained during the restoration, such as the vaulted ceilings in the living areas.

External areas

Villa Florentia benefits from two separate entrances: one at the front of the main house and another, on the opposite side of the villa, which takes you to the apartment on the ground floor. Each one is convenient and functional, with parking space for cars.

The grounds, measuring around 8,500 sq.m in total, follow the incline of the hill and have been landscaped, creating large, terraced areas with lawns which make the land flat. Tall trees, bushes, hedges and a pretty little lake create an intimate, pleasant atmosphere. On the property’s land there is also a fertile olive grove with around 100 trees.

Use and potential uses

This property, due to its beautiful location a stone’s throw from the centre of Fiesole and a few minutes from the centre of Florence, would be perfect as a main residence, a holiday home or for long stays. Being divided into two completely separate homes makes it ideal for hosting friends and family while maintaining your own independence and privacy.
