About our home

We are a European family with three small children. We completely refurbished this 19th century villa in 2015/2016, restoring to its former grandeur and giving it a modern design with large open spaces. The villa is inside Florence (not close to, or with easy access to, just simply inside), which is a rare find. And while being inside the city, the house is calm and flushed with light thanks to a large south-facing garden at its front. The layout has been redesigned to have the daytime area on the ground floor and night area on the first floor. The whole house boasts high ceilings, providing generous volumes.
Living space is made up of a large L-shaped triple lounge with wonderful views on garden and art-deco frescoes, a further private veranda, a full bathroom, a TV room and an office/bedroom. The kitchen is an absolute stunner and opens on to an outside green terrace with garden furniture.
A large wood and sandstone staircase with a light well will lead you to the first floor where three double bedrooms and three full bathrooms can be found. The largest bedroom has a terrace overlooking the garden. Afourth double bedroom can be found on the second floor, accessed through another sandstone staircase.
Outside space. There is a large garden, with a functioning 19th century fountain, drive-in garage and parking space for another 3 cars. You will be surrounded by lovely trees: banana, fig, prune, apple, orange and kaki with their colors and scents. In the evening, outside lighting makes the garden feel like heaven on earth. There is barbecue, ping/pong, minifootball table etc...
Area. Based in the "Cure" area, it is a pleasant 25-minute walk to the Duomo, 10-minute bicycle/bus ride or 4 minutes by train. A lovely park with huge open spaces and playground is very close to the house, almost across the street. Tennis courts are also across the street.
