In the territory of the ancient medieval village of Galliano, not far from Florence, stands the historic home of Villa Torre a Soli, in a position that allows the eye to dominate the landscape on the hills of Mugello. Still under renovation, it has a garden, a park and a panoramic swimming pool. The dwelling has expanded over the centuries from the Medieval Tower, dating back to the eleventh century, to which were added the central body of the thirteenth century and finally the North Tower, home of the caretaker. Spacious and beautiful cellars occupy the basement. The villa can easily be divided into three units, each with at least four bedrooms. The entire property is fenced, has internal parking and gravel driveway.
The ground floor is accessed by a large entrance with a coffered ceiling. The walls are decorated and one of them has exposed stones from the Medieval Tower. A large corridor leads to two large rooms, both with ornate walls, coffered ceilings and original wooden floors from the early 1900s. A room measuring 50 square meters has walls completely decorated at the beginning of the 20th century by Leto Chini, a well-known local artist. The spacious kitchen is equipped with a large fireplace, very suitable for barbecues. The dining room, located in the medieval tower, has a sailed ceiling. The bedrooms, all with private bathrooms, are on the first floor. On the second floor there is another bedroom with private bathroom, while on the third and top floor there is a loft.
The caretaker's house, now called Torre Nord, is built on three floors. On the ground floor there is a kitchen and dining room with fireplace. On the first floor, there is a large master bedroom with a spacious private bathroom, which has two sinks, a bathtub and a shower. On the second floor has three further bedrooms. The third and last floor is currently used as a bookshop. The ceilings are beamed and the floors are parquet or terracotta.
A centuries-old Lebanese cedar stands out in the park, along with numerous fruit trees. In the garden, with lawn and flowers, there is a pergola, on which a centuries-old yellow rose climbs. The tables for outdoor relaxation are laid out under the pergola. The panoramic swimming pool has a stone edge and paved area for the deckchairs. In an elevated position it is bordered by hedges and ancient cast iron railing.
