< >


Historic villa with 6 bedrooms, 450 sqm of floor area, terraces, gardens and a swimming pool.

Located just a few minutes from the town of Greve and half an hour from Florence, this impressive structure enjoys panoramic views and impressive features from its noble past.


The Villa

The well distributed accommodation of the villa is spread over three floors with all but one of the bedrooms ensuite. One enters the villa from the terrace piazza into the ground floor hallway leading into a principal ‘salone’. One is immediately struck by the grandeur of the spaces with high vaulted ceiling, grand fireplace and large windows from which the views can be enjoyed. A smaller drawing room leads off the salone, which could be used as a study or TV room, and there is also a kitchen with adjoining staff bedroom and bathroom.


To the first floor, via the pietra serena stairway, one finds a further two large reception rooms, equally as impressive as those on the ground floor. The principal room has adjoining panoramic terrace for outside living and dining in the summer months and to either side of the reception rooms one finds two ensuite bedroom suites.


A further two ensuite bedrooms, a small bedroom and another reception room can be found on the second floor to complete the accommodation of the villa.


Further Accommodation

To the left of the villa entrance, leading off the piazza, there is unrestored yet attractive stone structure of 140 sqm which could be converted into additional accommodation or games room.


Gardens & Grounds

The grounds of the villa are arranged into terraces around the main structure with viewing pergola and swimming pool terrace cut into the rock. The rest of the land falls down the hillside to the river below and to the rear of the property there is further land comprising of a small vineyard of 0.5 hecatres classified as Chianti Clasico DOCG, olive groves (160 trees) and woodland, totaling approx. 5 hectares. This land however does not adjoin the villa itself.



The hilltop position ensures absolute tranquillity yet Greve can be reached in under 5 minutes and Florence in just 30 minutes.
