Located near the lively town of San Casciano Val di Pesa, the origins of this handsome property are documented from the early XVI century and it is considered to be a fine example of classical Renaissance architecture.
The villa is classified as an historic monument by the city's "Fine Arts" administration because of its magnificent interior and exterior features. Its symmetrical plans and facades, as well as the fantastic layout of the interiors, reflect the Renaissance tradition at its very best.
It is evident that the current owners have carried out a painstaking and detailed renovation programme to produce what is a magnificent villa. Whilst having being extensively renovated, particular care has been taken to retain the original features and character; these include excellent ceiling heights, open fireplaces, ornate archways, original tiled flooring and shutters. These, together with the addition of modern fixtures and fittings (elevator and air conditioning) have come together effortlessly to create an extremely comfortable family home fit for modern living in a prime position.
The property extends to approximately 4.5 Ha of gardens and grounds, just under 1 Ha of which is garden immediately surrounding the Villa.
Extra Virgin olive oil is produced every year from the 800 olive trees within the grounds.
