This elegant villa sits on the hills just below San Domenico a few minutes outside the city with lovely views over olive groves towards the cathedral and city monuments. A family home providing a wonderful atmosphere with privacy, views and an impressive courtyard.
This listed building dates from the 16th century when it was originally a convent and the 20th century when it was the residence of Bernard Berenson who went on to live in Villa I Tatti. It has been owned by the current family since the 1970s. The property has conserved its originality and enjoys beautiful views, a private courtyard, garage parking and large living spaces.
The villa is on 4 levels and includes ample cellar space of almost 200 sq m that could be developed.
A garage building of ca. 50 sq m is separate from the villa and accessed from the road and the property has a tower room with stairs to a roof terrace of 10 sq m with fantastic views of the city.
The villa has many beautifully conserved original features including the columned entrance loggia, courtyard of 80 sq m and a first floor loggia of 26 sq m. On the fireplace in the ground floor living room one finds the crest of the families Torrigiani and Guicciardini.
The garden is completely hedged and there is a stone pathway that runs adjacent to the villa leading down to the main road with bus routes into town. The property sits in a beautiful green area between Florence and Fiesole and is close to several universities and the Fiesole music school.
