Splendid 15th century villa on Florence's hills
Located on the leafy hills in the south of Florence, this luxury villa for sale enjoys a privileged and panoramic position and is just two kilometres from the centre of the city.
Thanks to its position above the city, between the old roads of Tuscany’s countryside, this estate is separated from the city but it is still part of it, offering a rural context in Florence.
The main estate, which probably dates back to 1427, has a total surface of around 900m2 and consists of two floors with two entrances and two staircases, and an unfinished half-floor on the side of the farmland, which was once used as a cellar.
There is another separate building, once used as stables, with two double storey apartments, which have been recently renovated. Both have their separate entrances and gardens.
The villa is surrounded by a strip made of five majestic pine trees, three of which are centuries old, and by tall cypresses, while the 2.7 hectares farmland features olive groves and fantastic fruit trees, as well as a wood with oak trees and holm oaks.
The area is under special environmental protection but there is the possibility to build a swimming pool or a heliport inside this property for sale.
This prestigious estate has a main entrance and a secondary access, normally used for the farmland but which is very convenient to access the parking lot in case of events with larger groups.

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, has undisputed charm and beauty that is known throughout the world, not just as the city of monuments and historical buildings, but also as the home to many period villas and luxury estates located in the historical center or in the hills surrounding the "cradle of the Renaissance."
Florence is located in a scenographic position, in the middle of a wide valley surrounded by the hills of Cercina, Fiesole, Settignano, Arcetri, Poggio Imperiale, and Bellosguardo. In this landscape, there are numerous Tuscan estates, but also many hotel complexes and private villas.
There are many attractions that the city of Florence has to offer: famous squares such as Piazza della Signoria, historical theatres such as Pergola, Verdi, as well as the famous bridges of Ponte Vecchio, Santa Trinita, Ponte alle Grazie, and Ponte alla Carraia, and last but not least, the city walls and doors.
Anyone wishing to purchase a historic villa can find one that suits his or her needs in the sublime setting of the city of Florence.
