Description in Detail

Casa Desiderio towers over the glowing hills of the Florentine countryside in a fantastic panoramic position. A graceful residence surrounded by a vibrant lush garden and a large olive grove. At a mere 10-minute drive from Florence, it is the perfect family home or countryside villa just around the corner from the breathtaking renaissance city.

The luxurious estate is made up of a main villa with highly luminous interiors, an outbuilding used as a studio/office, and an independent staff apartment.

The main villa 253 m2 is composed of three floors:

  • Ground Floor: from the main entrance hall we access a capacious living room with a cozy fireplace and guest bathroom generously lit by large panoramic glass garden doors, the spacious contemporary kitchen with hamper and dining area has two accesses to the garden, and the floor is completed by a double bedroom with private bathroom. The garden side of the property is protected by a graceful loggia that provides shade and a stunning view over the garden and surrounding landscape. The ground floor has direct access to 2 outdoor dining terraces. 
  • First floor: This floor has a large double bedroom with a private bathroom and balcony and a master bedroom with a fireplace and a large marble bathroom with a jacuzzi.

Next to the main villa we find a renovated annex with a lovely loggia of 24 m2 used as a study. A third independent building houses a 34 m2 independent staff apartment with a living area, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

The property is completed by 2.4 ha of land with a large olive grove counting 320 olive trees. A lush green garden is patched with areas for relaxation including a lovely sun patio and stylish round swimming pool with a diameter of 7m. The perfect place to relax and watch the sunset during the Tuscan summer.

Casa Desiderio is characterized by one of the most beautiful panoramas that you can find in the countryside close to Florence.
