A charming villa dating back to the 16th century, nestled in oak woodland just 12 km from the city centre of Florence.
The market and terracotta town of Impruneta is 7 km away, Florence airport ca. 30 km and the International School of Florence ca.10 km. The property is ideally located for enjoying both the unspoilt and tranquil Tuscan countryside and the attractions of an amazing city like Florence.
Accessed by a short track with electric entrance gate, leading to a parking area. Over 3 floors of ca. 1140 sqm, there are over 30 rooms, many with elegant original frescoes and beautifully decorated ceilings. The impressive features of the villa include the external, monumental stairs leading to the main floor, a large, double height ballroom overlooked by balconies from the upper floor, a consecrated private chapel, impressive cellars and a large, top floor loggia and panoramic terrace. There are currently 10 bedrooms; 5 on the main floor and a further 5 in the three top floor apartments. The villa requires modernisation, but the entire roof was restored in 2000 and the floors are original and in good condition.
Casa Colonica il Moretto
Next to the main villa, the farmhouse is on 2 floors with a total of ca. 400 sqm.
