Situated in the beautiful Poggio Imperiale area, this magnificent villa dates back to the 15th century. Originally a convent, the property has undergone various transformations through the centuries, evolving from its initial religious function into a luxurious residential abode, which is now partitioned into various units.
Despite these alterations, the restoration work has meticulously preserved much of the original architecture. This includes stunning vaulted ceilings, stone fireplaces, and expertly restored frescoes like those found in the external fountain designed by the architect Buontalenti.
Spread across three levels and approximately 460 square meters, the villa offers a diverse array of spaces. The ground floor houses a generous living area divided into three bright rooms, complemented by a guest bathroom and a laundry room. The opposite side contains the stairwell, kitchen, pantry, and dining room, with direct access to the garden. Descending the stairs leads to the villa’s former cellars, now hosting a private gym, a guest room, and an en-suite bathroom. The brick arches in these rooms give away their original purpose as storage cellars.
The upper floor features more exclusive and elegant bedrooms. A corridor leads to one bedroom with its own private bathroom and walk-in closet, along with a lounge area featuring a fireplace. Another corridor leads to the master bedroom, boasting a spacious en-suite bathroom and a private walk-in closet. A staircase from this level provides access to the attic, which houses another bedroom, a bathroom, and a walk-in closet.
Externally, the property is graced with a private garden spanning 2,500 square meters, offering utmost privacy thanks to its surrounding walls. The garden is adorned with a beautifully designed swimming pool and the preserved Buontalenti fountain, flanked by two marble busts. Completing the property are an elevator and parking space for up to four cars, making this villa not just a piece of art but also a residence of great convenience and functionality.
