This is a classic Italian ’villa’ in every sense of the word with park-like grounds, adorned with precision-placed pines, firs, cypresses and hedges. The house itself is square, solid and exemplifies a bygone, yet comfortable, Italian style. The rooms have high-ceilings, beautifully painted or widely brick corrugated, from which crystal chandeliers hang. The furniture, floors, fixtures and fittings are mostly original. And, to cap it all, this villa is set on a hill surrounded by undulating countryside, so breathtakingly beautiful, that it could only be Tuscany.
The villa is near Limite sull’Arno, a town on the River Arno due west of Florence, just 25 km away. Vinci, of Leonardo fame, is 20 minutes drive. However Empoli is the nearest town for those necessities of banks, shops and pharmacies, about 10 minutes away.
The villa is on an under-used country lane behind large iron gates and next to a working farm, also the property of the villa owners. The fenced-in grounds are lined with pathways and hedges that dissect well-maintained lawns. The illuminated pool is surrounded by hedges and there are changing rooms and showers. Next to the pool is a synthetically turfed 17m x 40m tennis court. There is a terrace with views of vineyards, fruit orchards and rolling hills.
