This 19th century villa in the hills south of Florence, overlooking the pittoresque village of Pelago, offers both peaceful tranquillity and easy access to the culture and art of the world famous Renaissance city. It has been a family retreat for decades.
The 650 sqm villa covers 3 floors and is set on 10 ha of wooded land in the hills aroundFlorence, offering incredible views over the local vineyards and olive groves. It maintains many notable architectural characteristics including distinctive multi-coloured patterned tile floors, “pietra serena” stairs with decorative wrought iron banisters, and high ceilings some of which still show original painted decorations in good condition.
The ground floor features a large entrance hall that runs the length of the villa and opens onto a double living room, dining room and kitchen with pantry as well as a double bedroom and bathroom. The first floor offers a luminous living room with fireplace and balcony, plus four spacious bedrooms and a bathroom; while the second floor has 3 further bedrooms and a bathroom as well as a large living room with fireplace that runs the length of the building. Each of the three floors is equipped with a kitchen and individual heating system rendering the villa easily convertible into 3 separate apartments. There is also a separate but attached studio apartment with loft.
The property is surrounded by an ample garden with a large panoramic south facing pool and a field equipped for football (soccer.) in the back of the building.
