Trophy estate with majestic villa in commanding position on the hills of Florence, close to Fiesole, overlooking the town with magnificent views. This historic property consists of two villas, the manor house of which was built by a famous Swiss architect and painter in the late 1800s and finished in the early 1900s in an eclectic Renaissance style. Nestled among the tall cypress trees of the Fiesole hills, positioned in an extremely panoramic and private location, surrounded by a large private land of 1 hectare delineated by thick walls and fences ensuring total security and maximum privacy.
The property is embellished with spectacular loggias, balconies and grand terraces overlooking the historic center of Florence.
Both buildings within the surrounding grounds have two different entrances from two separate roads, one coming from the Fiesole side with direct access to the main villa and one coming from the Florence city side that allows a second access to both the main and the smaller villa.
The main villa is spread over several floors around a majestic period staircase. On the main floor we find a double living room with stone portals and original painted coffered ceilings, a billiard room with an authentic stone fireplace, a beautiful dining room and kitchen, and a beautifully preserved antique library connected to an elegant study.
On the upper floor, reached through the stone staircase with typical period decorations, we find the sleeping area consisting of six double bedrooms and six bathrooms in addition to large spaces used as closets.
In the basement there is the ancient kitchen, plus cellars and many large rooms, currently used as storage rooms and staff quarters. The basement area has the potential to be used as a cinema room, a spa, and an inside pool, offering splendid views and an additional loggia and terrace of over 100 square meters with a 360-degree view of the entire city of Florence.
Also within the one-hectare plot is a second villa covering an additional 250 square meters with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with terraces and balconies also with breathtaking views.
Both centrally located, they overlook the beautiful hillside of Fiesole embellished with terraces, uncovered parking spaces, and beautiful paths in gorgeous vegetation. The property includes two private garages and an additional outbuilding/limonaia near the main building for guests or staff.
Unprecedented estate not to be missed.
