Unique opportunity to acquire a historic Tuscan residence owned for centuries by one of Tuscany's noble families. The 360 degree views and proximity to Florence make this a highly desirable property.
The origins of the property date back to 1100 when it stood as a castle; then in the 1700s an elegant villa was built around the remains of the castle and still today one can see the forms of the original castle tower and its impressive cellars.
In total the property offers 1080 m2 of floor area spread over three floors. At present the property is split into two residences which could easily be reconnected, should one wish, to create a single home. A wealth of original features are found throughout including grandiose fireplaces, fresco work, polished antique terracotta flooring, pietra serena stairways and high beamed ceilings. To the ground floor are 3 interlinking reception rooms which all have French doors allowing access onto the garden terraces.
In addition to the main residence there are also service quarters to the lower terrace of the garden and the stables have been converted to provide three guest residences: one apartment of 120 m2 with private garden, another apartment of 95 m2 and a smaller apartment of 45 m2.
Gardens & Grounds
To access the property there are two separate gates and ample parking. The grounds cover a total of 5 hectares which is mainly laid to olive groves with gardens closer to the villa. At present there is no swimming pool but there would be no problem acquiring permission to add one.
Located just a short distance from the charming town of Greve one has easy access to an array of services. Florence can be reached in 35 minutes and Siena in 45 minutes. Florence airport can be reached in 30 min and Pisa airport in 1 hour 15 min.
