Villa Limone

An outstanding residence, dating back to the 1700s, within close proximity of central Florence. With formal gardens, swimming pool, privacy, panoramic roof terrace, garaging, parkland and guest accommodation this restored limonaia is a rare find.

 

The Property

Located within a gated compound, enjoying absolute privacy is this elegantly restored limonaia. On arrival at the property one is struck by the sweeping garden and grandiose façade of this historic dwelling. The main house is entered from the beautifully maintained formal gardens leading into a double-height central reception room with floor to ceiling windows and French doors flooding the space with natural light and giving access to the gardens during the summer months. This central room is zoned providing a seating area with fireplace, study area and dining area from which one enters the fully equipped, traditional style kitchen. To the rear of the kitchen is a service entrance and pantry. It is also to this south wing of the limonaia that one finds two bedrooms and a bathroom – the direct access to the garden from these bedrooms would allow for use as an independent guest or staff apartment.

 

To the upper storey of the property is an extensive mezzanine with glass balconies and banisters ensuring a wonderful continuous feeling of space. From the mezzanine one can access the rear gardens and parkland, relax in the library area or enter the property’s principle bedroom accommodation. The master bedroom suite to the north wing dual aspect overlooking both the formal gardens to the front of the property and the parkand to the rear, with dressing room and bathroom. To the south area of the mezzanine one steps into a corridor with a further two double bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms.

 

To the lower ground floor one finds the laundry room, storage rooms and staff apartment. In total the lower ground floor covers 120 m2.

 

The property is fitted with high quality parquet flooring throughout and equipped with full air conditioning, mosquito nets on all windows and a sophisticated alarm system.

 

Additional Accommodation

To the north of the limonaia there is a charming two storey guest apartment with a cosy sitting area, kitchenette and bathroom on the ground floor and a double bedroom on the first floor.

 

Leading off the driveway and parking area is the original stables converted into a large fully insulated and glazed garage of 165 m2 with tiled flooring, shower room and large feature doors. The current owners use this open plan space as an office and could be converted to a separate apartment thanks to plumbing and electricity already being in place and plenty of natural light.

 

Gardens and Grounds

To the exterior of the property one can explore the diverse areas of the grounds, from the sunbathing areas around the bespoke designed infinity swimming pool, the orchards and olive groves, the formal gardens and to the rear are paths meandering through the mature parkland with impressive trees and picturesque lake. The roof terrace is certainly a focal point for outdoor living, dining and entertaining during the summer months covering 280 m2 and boasting views over olive groves with Florence’s Duomo in the distance.

 

Location

The property is located in a quiet residential area to the south of Florence in the direction of Pontassieve. The centre of the city can be reached in just 15 minutes by car. Florence airport is 30 minutes by car, Pisa airport 1 hour and the motorway is under 10 minutes from the house allowing easy access to other areas of Italy.
