An elegant villa, yards from the main square of Fiesole.
A well-kept secret behind the Fiesole hill enjoying far reaching views over Florence and the surrounding countryside. Just 7 km from the city centre but immersed in an authentic Tuscan landscape of terraced olive groves, woods and flowered gardens.
Comprising three buildings, this estate nestles into the hillside. It is carefully hidden by beautiful vegetation, flowers and fruit trees with bowery pergolas, shady loggias and olive groves. Accessed by a narrow lane running down from the main square of Fiesole, one enters a private gate to a parking area. Here there is the main Villa with the Casa Colonica below it and beyond the garden, walking towards the woods, is the Lemon House. There are various outbuildings including covered parking, greenhouses and tool sheds.
Originally built in the 15th century and converted to villa in the 1800s, the casa colonica has undergone recent renovation to a very high standard whilst the villa maintains its authentic style. The ideal oasis for those searching for comfortable, modern-day living close to amenities and the wonders of Fiesole and Florence while enjoying a beautiful garden and producing one's own delicious olive oil. There is a spring on the property giving its name Villa Sorgentina and there is mains water and city gas.
