This exclusive historic villa with a delightful chapel and 2.7 hectares of land is for sale in the beautiful setting of the hills of Florence, in one of the areas where Chianti expresses all its character.

The richness of this mansion lies in the extraordinary, typically Tuscan natural landscape that surrounds it. This oasis of peace, among the most striking in the Tuscan countryside, is perfect for reaching the nearby cities of Florence and Siena, where expanses of vineyards alternate with majestic olive groves and dense woods.

The villa dates back to the 13th century and was originally the tower belonging to the Baldovini family.
Later, it was owned by the historic and important Pitti family of Florence.
During the 18th and 15th centuries, the property was embellished with frescoes and architectural improvements and an aristocratic chapel with courtyard. In addition, an Italian garden and a wooded park of tall trees with waterfalls were created.

The splendid villa is free on three sides, spread over four floors plus the turret and has a total area of 650 sqm, arranged as follows.
On the basement/ground floor there are four vaulted rooms in brick and old stone with modern terracotta flooring and a large bathroom.
The first floor houses a completely frescoed entrance hall, a large reception hall of over 60 sqm with a 17th-century pink marble fireplace, ancient frescoes by Luigi Mussini (important painter from Siena of the Romantic period - 19th century) and access to the Italian garden, a living room with a Renaissance fireplace in pietra serena and wooden beams, a kitchen, two frescoed studies, a dining room with access to the raised garden, a bedroom, two bathrooms, four hallways and a storeroom.
The second floor consists of a living room with a neoclassical fireplace in white Carrara marble, a master bedroom with bathroom and closet, a double bedroom with frescoes, a large bathroom, a frescoed bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a small guest room/study.
On the third floor there are a large room/study of about 55 sqm with a ceiling with wooden beams and a terracotta staircase leading to the tower.
The tower houses a double bedroom with a wood-beamed ceiling, en-suite bathroom and a south-facing view of the surrounding nature and the adjacent hillside.

The aristocratic chapel of approximately 50 sqm with sacristy consists of two rooms.

The property is completed by agricultural land and a park with various paths and centuries-old plants of olive, bamboo, laurel, broom, pear, acacia and other rare plants.
In addition, the property includes an extensive Italian-style garden with box hedges, which houses the Chapel.
