Real estate for sale - Country houses
Historic country house with annex and heated pool 36 km from Florence
The estate was first mentioned by name in 1427, as can be read in a book of the Archivio dello Stato.
Due to its quiet location with a beautiful view of the Arno valley, vineyards and olive groves, the estate has given the owners many incentives for artistic activities. However, if one wishes, one can quickly move from here to the hustle and bustle of the nearby city with all its shopping facilities, railway station, motorway and Florence airport.
A driveway lined with cypress trees leads to the property, the private driveway ends here.
The decision of the current owners to buy the house at that time was ultimately made by the sloping position of the house, as it is possible to walk out on any floor and then find yourself in a garden and/or on one of the four terraces or loggias.
The house extends over three levels. The main entrance on the ground floor is through a loggia into a large kitchen with central work block, from which one enters a utility room on the left, a few steps down on the right into a snug with fireplace and straight ahead into a passage room. From here one has access straight ahead to a large bedroom with bathroom, an adjoining room and L-shaped loggia with access to the garden and on the right via a staircase to the 1st floor.
On the 1st floor there is an anteroom with access to a large living room with balcony and access to the garden, a bedroom, a loggia, another bedroom with bathroom and stairs to the 2nd floor.
On the 2nd floor there is are two bedrooms with bathroom and loggia with access to the garden.
The main house is heated by a new eco-oil heating system and is equipped with a new air conditioning system.

The cottage is heated by central heating with LPG-tank.
At the end of the driveway there are two outbuildings used as car port and storage rooms.
In front of the house there is a large terrace with a beautiful view, from which a stone staircase leads to a lower terrace with a swimming pool.
