dominating all over the valley of Pistoia. Conveniently and strategically located in less than 25 min. from Florence and just over 40 min. from the prestigious coastline of Versilia.
The most famous artists-decorators active in Tuscany, from Pietro Baldoncoli to Francesco Morini, from Mariano Coppedè to Giuseppe Michelucci, participated in the creation of this luxury sixteenth-century style property.
The interiors have rich finishes, beautiful antique furnishings and stunning frescoes. The villa is accessed by passing through a long tree-lined boulevard, opening onto a large monumental atrium that features two stairs decorated with a rich wrought iron railing deftly worked and beautiful vaults painted by Poccetti and Vasari. From here one enters the main hall with a beautiful painted vault and with a splendid fireplace, the dining room and the billiard room with paneling in wood and doors with gables carved by the same artists who completed the refined furniture. The past owners eclectic temperament is also expressed in the horseshoe stable and in the various accessories such as the kennel and aviary. The terraces and the garden have a large meadow upstream with a cave, a staircase and a fountain drawing inspiration from the historical tradition and style.
The luxury villa has a large plot of land partly intended as a park (6.5 ha), olive groves and woodland for a total of 40 hectares. Along the park's boulevard is a eighty meter long swimming pool powered by surface water. Below the driveway is a flat terrain that was used as a sports field, which is still viable as a tennis court. The villa is served by two private springs of water that flow into two large underground tubs to meet the water needs of the beautiful Italian garden of about 2.5 hectares and the living spaces.
