Built in the late 19th century by Giuseppe Poggi, one of Florence’s greatest architects, the Villa of 1060 sq.m is to the south of the city and just outside the town of Impruneta, famous for its terracotta and olive oil. Fifteen minutes from the centre of Florence and thirty minutes from the airport, this impressive Florentine country estate provides the unusual combination of a wonderful rural location with easy access to this magnificent renaissance city. The estate, enjoying fantastic south-facing views over the Chianti landscape, is accessed by a 1 km cypress-lined private drive. Set on a hillside with commanding views over formal gardens and the surrounding countryside, the main villa can be approached from both sides. The main front door leads into the grand entrance hall with staircase and has doors off to the formal reception areas with large windows overlooking the gardens. The ground floor also comprises a large country-style kitchen, formal dining room, media and music rooms. The main staircase leads to the staff quarters on the mezzanine floor and on up to the main bedrooms on the first floor where there are 6 bedroom suites, the majority of which have large windows looking out onto formal gardens. All the suites are attractively furnished and decorated. 2 reception rooms. Stairs to second floor currently used as children’s quarters providing 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The property includes a separate building close to the main villa of c. 450 sqm. providing 2 apartments for staff or guests. Large orangery with garaging, underground wine cellar with further accommodation above. There is a 19th century gate house at the entrance to the estate. The Villa sits in approximately 100 hectares, of predominantly woodland, including approximately 6 hectares of olive groves, a large lake and formal gardens surrounding the main house. The gardens were designed by the famous Italian landscape architect, Pietro Porcinai, in the late 1950s. The swimming pool has astonishing views over the surrounding Chianti landscape.
