Property Overview

Imagine the charm of living inside an ancient Renaissance villa, which over the centuries has belonged to great families of the Florentine nobility and is surrounded by a luxuriant park where you can stroll among Lebanese cedars, centuries-old fir trees, magnolias, and aromatic herbs. A small oasis of peace and tranquillity where time seems to stand still, but at the same time close to all the amenities and services. The Villa and its annexes, the original nucleus of which dates back to the late 1500s, were split up and skilfully renovated in the early 2000s, carried out maintaining as many original elements as possible and using materials typical of Tuscan tradition. The Appartamento dell’Orologio (Clock Apartment) is located on the second and top floor of the main body of the Villa and owes its name to the fascinating peculiarity of housing the clock mechanism inside, visible on the façade of the Villa and still working today. Access to the house is through a characteristic, perfectly maintained condominium cloister. An internal stone staircase leads from the cloister to the west wing of the Villa, from which a comfortable wooden staircase leads to the apartment. The entrance is on a large hallway, which leads to a comfortable living room with a wood-burning stove and window overlooking the park. From the living room proceeding to the right, we reach a comfortable eat-in kitchen with a mobile peninsula and a large table for enjoying family meals. A door separates the kitchen from the sleeping area, consisting of two large, bright double bedrooms with parquet flooring and two complete bathrooms, one with shower and the other with bathtub. Also from the living room, going up a wooden and wrought-iron staircase, there is access to a first mezzanine that houses the clock mechanism, currently used as a study, and to a second very large multi-purpose space with a large skylight, currently used as a hobby/cinema room, but which could lend itself to various possibilities. Almost all of the apartment’s windows overlook the condominium park, except for the one in the study, from which there is a charming view of the roof and the cloister of the Villa. The warm wood and terracotta tones of the floors, as well as the high ceilings with exposed beams, make the environment very cosy, as well as conveying the elegance and historical and traditional character of the property. The park extends to the rear of the Villa and has a surface area of about 2 ha, where it is possible to stroll and enjoy moments of peace and relaxation. There is also a barbecue area that can be reserved and used for parties and dinners with friends. A private cellar and two parking spaces complete the property. The property is ideal for those who are looking for something representative and historical, but at the same time want to live close to the city.

The Villa is located in the municipality of Montelupo Fiorentino, near the golf club and the Via Francigena, both within walking distance. Montelupo Fiorentino is situated in the first Florentine countryside and besides being equipped with all services, it is a decidedly strategic and convenient location for travelling to the city, both by car and by train. Thanks to the FI -PI -LI motorway, it is possible to reach the airports of Florence and Pisa in 35 and 40 minutes respectively, as well as Livorno and the coast in less than 1 hour.
