Villa Orchidea

Situated in one of Florence’s most prestigious districts just above the city nestled amongst hills and olive groves , this classic Italian villa is a rarity on the current market.  Located so close to the city (a 20min walk) but being in the peaceful countryside is one of the many characteristics that make this property unique.

 

The Villa

As many of the properties in this area, the Villa dates back to the 15th century – renaissance period, and not much new building has gone on in the area since then. Current planning law still restricts new building in the area. Restored and renovated in the 1930’s and then partially updated in the 1980’s by the current owners. The complete villa offers around 1150 sq metres of floor space which include the cellars and staff quarters, leaving around 800 Sq metres of floor space for residential use. This liveable and manageable floor space is another unique point of the villa, as many comparable villas in the area  since divided into portions or apartments are much larger and sometimes unsuitable for a single family.

 

Lay-Out

The open-plan layout of the ground floor main sale and lounge is yet another unique point of this villa. The majority of the 800 Sq metres circa of liveable space is spread over two floors, however there is a third floor in the Belvedere or tower.  On the ground floor the main entrance opens onto a large living area divided by arches which provide a central reception area and a lounge area around the fireplace. Accessed off this main sale is the kitchen, the study/library, a cloakroom and WC, and the dining room which leads out onto a fabulous panoramic raised terrace offering views over Florence. The first floor accessed via an impressive marble staircase is composed of bedrooms, bathrooms, a second living room/study – with a large balcony/terrace overlooking the gardens and Florence.

In total there are currently 9 bedrooms, 2 living rooms/studies,  and 4 bathrooms, however this property has good potential for a relatively simple redesign and modernisation.

From the second floor a second stairway gives access to the loft/attic area (renovated into storage rooms), a study/reading room in the tower and a large terrace with 360° views.

A villa also has a large cellar/cantina and a limonaia leading onto the garden.

 

Secondary Accommodation

Further to the  self contained staff quarters in the villa, there is also a gatehouse with ground floor garage space, and a one bedroom first floor apartment with lounge and kitchen.

 

Gardens & Grounds

The impressive entrance gate leads off a small residential street onto a cypress tree lined driveway leading up the front door of the villa. A well kept lawn surrounds the villa (fron & rear) however to the rear the gardens are terrace leading down onto the olive grove. Below the olive grove there is a forest and then Florence.  In total there is approx.. 1.6 hectares of land.
