Description of buildings
Villa Tuscany was built in the 1800’s, by order of the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo I di Lorena.
It measures around 448 sq.m in total, over three floors, plus a 19 sq.m loggia, a 22 sq.m cellar requiring restoration and a 45 sq.m basement storeroom with the old barn above it, also requiring restoration.
The building is currently divided into three apartments, one on the ground floor with access from the left side of the front porch and comprising a large living room with grey sandstone fireplace (in the area where the stables used to be), the kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
There is a communal area for the three apartments which is also accessible from the front porch, but on the right side, which comprises a dining room/recreation room with fireplace, another sitting room and a bathroom.
A staircase goes up to the first floor where the other two apartments are located.
The first apartment has two floors and comprises a spacious living room with large grey sandstone fireplace, kitchenette, two bedrooms, a bathroom and, on the top floor, another attractive bedroom which has a view of the whole Valdarno valley.
The other apartment, with just one floor, is divided into a cosy living room with arched doorways and windows, the kitchen with small grey sandstone fireplace, two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom.
Outside there is a small building used as a cellar, measuring 22 sq.m in total and another building, at basement level, used as a storeroom with the old barn above it. Both these buildings require restoration.
State and finishing
Despite undergoing recent restoration, the villa has retained its original architectural features: brick and tile floors, grey sandstone stairs and doorsteps, ceilings with exposed beams, brick arches, vaulted galleries and beautiful grey sandstone fireplaces.
2.9 hectares of private land complete this property, with the area around the villa used as a garden and the rest with olive grove and woodland.
Use and potential uses
Villa Tuscany’s excellent location, hilly and panoramic and just half an hour from Florence, makes it a perfect holiday home or main residence, with the possibility of using one part as a small hospitality business, putting it on the holiday rental market.
