With origins dating back to the 15th century this majestic structure was a noble residence and Papal seat for centuries until the 1980s. A few years ago 11 mini apartments were created but the villa remains unfinished in part. There is also a private chapel, restaurant and recreation areas such as the swimming pool. Views from the villa stretch across the rolling hills of Tuscany with the glistening coast in the distance.
The Main Villa
In total there are 1700 m2 of floor area spread across the main villa and adjacent two storey building.
One enters the villa into a grand hallway with imposing wooden staircase connecting the three storeys of the property. The ground floor of the villa provides impressive reception rooms for communal use including the original chapel which remains consecrated. The front "saloni" give access to the grounds. On this floor there are also unrestored cellar rooms which could provide further facilities or indeed accommodation and there is a one bedroom apartment.
On the first floor there are 5 individual apartments, all enjoy a spacious reception room and high quality bathrooms with marble finishings.
On the second floor one finds a further 6 apartments, several of which have charming beamed ceilings.
Though the property has not been in use for several years little work would be required to bring the apartments back into working order to once more generate income.
Adjacent to the main villa, with direct street access is a separate building which has been restored to provide restaurant and professional kitchen facilities. A further two apartments are also within this building.
Gardens & Grounds
Accompanying the villa one finds just under 1 hectare of private grounds with swimming pool, parking area and wonderful mature trees, walkways and statues - all enclosed within a private walled compound. The gardens have been left somewhat abandoned by the potential to bring back to their former glory is obvious.
Located within a medieval hilltop village one can simply step into the street to enjoy a coffee or aperitif at the neighbouring bar or buy basic provisions from the grocery shop. The village sits within the rolling countryside between Florence and Pisa. In under 30 minutes one can be at Pisa Airport or on the beach and within 1 hour one reaches Florence.
