This impressive hillside house boasts extensive accommodation, mature gardens including a private chapel and proximity to Greve in Chianti and central Florence.
Built in the 1960s using tradition Tuscan and Florentine architectural features the house offers large reception rooms, a separate 2 bedroom apartment and 5 bedrooms.
The main house, accessed via a charming courtyard, provides on the ground floor an entrance hall, large living room with French doors onto the courtyard, a dining room, kitchen and library. The impressive staircase then leads either to the lower level wine cellar or to the first floor where one finds the 5 bedrooms, two of which have balconies from which the views of the Chianti landscape can be enjoyed. The bedrooms share two bathrooms apart from the master bedroom which has an en-suite bathroom.
The separate apartment has an independent entrance but can also be accessed via the first floor of the main house. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two reception rooms it offers ample space for guests.
The property is in good condition but would need some modernisation in places. The superb collection of antiques adorning the house is also available for purchase by separate negotiation.
Gardens & Land
Accompanying the property there are 3.5 hectares of land which includes olive groves and woodland and a disused swimming pool. The land slopes down the hillside from the property providing quiet secluded areas to relax and enjoy the countryside.
Parking is provided at both entrance gates leading off the Greve road in a paved area close to the house and a gravelled yard beyond the gardens.
In the landscaped garden areas close to the house one finds wonderful mature trees, statues and a chapel which remains consecrated.

Central Florence is just 30 minutes from the house and the motorway is 15 minutes away. It is an ideal location for enjoying the charms of the Tuscan countryside without being isolated from the buzz and activity of the city.
