Land area: 7 Hectares, floor area: 1400 sq m (All measurements are approximate)
One approaches this magnificent villa by way of a winding road lined by roses, through its own private olive groves. Summiting the hill you are greeted by formal lawned gardens and the main entrance to the house with fantastic panoramic views.
Villa Fioravanti is only a stone’s throw from the city centre of Florence, only a short drive from the Arno, or indeed a very short walk down the hill to Piazza Tasso. It is incredibly well located for all transport links being only a few kilometres from Florence airport, Santa Maria Novella Train Station and the A1 Motorway.
One enters the ground floor through an elegantly vaulted loggia into the staircase hall. From here there is a long, vaulted corridor with reception rooms leading off to the right and kitchen and staff quarters and staircases to the left.
At the end of this corridor is a splendidly luminous square drawing room with access to a large terrace via double arched glazed doors, also with a stone carved fireplace, beautiful central Murano chandelier and a frescoed frieze as well as beautiful Florentine ceilings.
At each corner of the room are huge oak panelled doors leading to a library, a drawing room and an office and dining room, which in turn leads to another drawing room at the other end of the villa.
The interconnecting formal reception rooms on this side of the property also have a wonderful balcony along the entire length of the villa overlooking a formal Italianate box hedge garden below and on to views of the surrounding hills of Florence.
The first floor of the villa is accessed either via the main front hall staircase or by several hidden staff staircases. Interconnected bedrooms and bathrooms finally arrive at the grand master suite, again with magnificent views over Florence. The other staff staircases lead you to numerous
bedrooms and bathrooms on different levels, all with fantastic views over the city. Currently there are 10 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
The lower level of the villa comprises large cantina rooms, currently used as garaging and storage but could possibly be converted into a sumptuous spa.
There are four additional buildings which complete this magnificent property.
