Description in Detail
Light and airy, this spacious property is a real find so close to the heart of Florence. Villa Yellow Contemporary offers ample space and is filled with light, thanks to its large south-facing windows, with many rooms boasting direct access to the garden. Constructed in the 1950s, the villa is very well built and structurally sound. With a little modernization it could be transformed into an elegant contemporary residence.
Arrival at the villa is via a shady and inviting avenue lined with the pine and cypress trees typical of the region. Access is through a common gateway shared with one neighbor, ensuring the security of the property.
Built in a mid-century linear style, surrounded by terraces and with plenty of external space, large yellow shutters render the space light and luminous. The property has several entrances: the main entrance opens onto the first floor from which the principal rooms of the villa extend. It encompasses a large living space across a single floor which offers two beautiful lounges with a fireplace and a dining area, four large bedrooms and a spacious study. Large kitchen and utility room. The two lounges offer vistas onto the magnificent valley in which the villa seems to be suspended.
From the main room one can access a large attic room that could be used as a bedroom, workspace or study.
A flight of stairs leads to the ground floor where we find three additional bedrooms, a laundry room, two bathrooms, two kitchens and a large billiard room from which you can access the garden. On the same floor we find an additional room that has been used as a garage but could be easily converted back into a living space.
External access to an orangery, currently used as a gym and suitable for a variety of uses.
Situated within grounds of just under a hectare, there is plenty of space to build a swimming pool.
The blissful surrounding views are even more sublime considering that the villa is just a few kilometers from the center of Florence, making it ideally suited to a family whose children attend one of the local or international schools in the city.
Together with the villa it would be possible to acquire the adjacent land including a lake which can be used as a reservoir in the summer.
