Majestic Renaissance Villa of extraordinary historical-artistic interest for sale on the first hills of Florence. The historic property of approximately 1300 sqm, with 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, dates back to the 14th century, with an Italian garden, loggias, ancient spas, a fully equipped spa area, and a breathtaking view of Florence.

From the Renaissance to contemporary times, the house was lived in by historical figures and celebrities, who particularly appreciated the context, the communion with nature, and total privacy. Specifically, the original owners trace back to the Carlini family, a trusted notary of the Medici family. The Villa was a meeting place for influential people of the time, where events and meetings between illustrious intellectuals were held. The property was called ”The Villa of Pleasure” due to the thermal baths present and for pyrotechnic games, where the Medici were often invited. They had a great impact on the structure, adorning the garden with statues and complex water features, and commissioning the best painters and craftsmen of the time. The façade and the fountain inside the ancient baths are attributed to the famous architect of the Medici family, Bernardo Buontalenti. The facade is characterized by an imposing columned loggia overlooking the majestic Italian garden, the largest private loggia in Florence. Inside the Villa we still find the original frescoes and coats of arms of the original owner’s family. Many of the original details, such as the frescoes, the splendid coffered ceilings, and the original floors, have been meticulously preserved. The property represents a true testimony of history and is protected by the Fine Arts. The villa is on 2 levels and is equipped with a lift to add the upper floor and the underground spa to the basement.

The property is accessed via a tree-lined avenue of ancient cypresses. From the entrance hall, under the main arch, you can glimpse the sumptuous garden of the property. On the ground floor, the main one of the Villa, we find large reception rooms with ancient fireplaces, dining rooms, a large eat-in kitchen, bathrooms, and various service areas. The reception rooms are also accessible from the garden and have high vaulted and coffered ceilings.

On the upper floor, we find the sleeping area, which presents a more intimate atmosphere and is accessible by lift, which has 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, tastefully decorated. From the floor there is access to two loggias, one of which is imposing with a view of the Italian garden and the entire city of Florence; its size characterizes it, as a place that appears perfect for parties, events, and suggestive dinners.

The basement, also accessible by lift, houses the ancient baths with their beautiful nymphaeum, decorated with precious statues and fountains attributed to Buontalenti. The wellness area on the same level includes a sauna, a Turkish bath, a tub, and a jacuzzi. A ”secret” stone passage (carved into the rock) from the ancient underground baths opens onto the splendid terraced garden.

In the heart of the villa, we find the private chapel and the frescoed sacristy. A beautiful winter garden, which leads to the office area with bathroom, kitchenette, and study area with open views of the garden. The park is composed of a majestic Italian garden, embellished with flowering shrubs and terracotta decorations. Furthermore, within the land, we find various relaxation areas and dining areas. The villa is completed by a typical lemon house with more than 30 lemon trees, a comfortable covered garage, and apartments for the service staff.
