On the hills above Florence, in an extremely panoramic location with direct view over the historic center of the city, we find this beautiful luxury villa with Italian garden and swimming pool. The villa has also easy access to the International School of Florence, which has its headquarters inside Villa Torri di Gattaia (5km; 10’), just above Piazzale Michelangelo.
The villa dates back to the early 20th century but it was finely and carefully restored in 2011 by using only prestigious materials that could enrich the villa, without distorting the original idea. High-level finishes have been kept and all the elements which had been damaged by the passing of time have been replaced with new ones identical to the original.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful 6,000-sqm Italian garden, well maintained and decorated with hedges. Above the garage there is a paved terrace with a metal pergola offering a nice covered space for al fresco dinners in the pleasant summer climate of Tuscany. A short distance from the pergola we find the 11 × 6 m salt-water swimming pool, framed by centuries-old trees such as oaks, cypresses, olive trees and maritime pines.
