Villa Padronale with pool, park, olive grove and views onto the Chianti hills
Located in the heart of Tuscany on the hills of Chianti, the villa was originally owned by a noble Florentine family who used it as their summer residence for many years. The property has recently been completely renovated, maintaining its original structure and features. The villa extends over four floors. Access to the upper floors is provided by two stairs and an elevator that leads from the ground floor to the top floor. The ground floor consists of a large entrance hall, three living rooms, dining room, kitchen, two guest bathrooms and another bathroom for the kitchen. The kitchen is complete and equipped with all modern appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen there is a light-flooded dining room, from which you can access a terrace with views to the garden and the garden itself. Also from two of the spacious living rooms, French doors lead over steps directly to the garden. The first floor is accessed either via one of the two stairs or by elevator to a spacious vestibule, from which the four bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, can be accessed. The second floor of the villa is divided into three mini apartments, each with a living room with kitchenette and double bedroom with shower room. From the vestibule of the second floor, a spiral staircase leads to a panoramic terrace from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of Valdarno and the Chianti mountains. The villa has a complete cellar with another kitchen, utility rooms and storerooms. An Italian-style park with lawns and gravel avenues frames the villa and welcomes the arriving guests with its austere simplicity. An extensive lighting system makes it possible to enjoy the garden and the swimming pool even in the evening hours. The swimming pool measures 14 x 7 meters, on the long side a waterfall feeds another shallow pool of 14 x 4 meters. The property is surrounded by high cypresses and an olive grove. All around you will find vineyards and olive groves, country houses and small villages, an archetypal and very beautiful Tuscan landscape. A convenient, approx. 1 km long country lane leads through the fields to the nearby village. A noble estate where you can still sense the grandeur of the past.
