Beautiful historical 5 bedroom villa dating from 1860, set in extensive grounds, with pool, within an hour of Florence.

The villa is entered into a spacious entrance hall. From the hall is the kitchen, full of character, with working fireplace and with a stone sink, stone work surface and exposed stone walls. The impressive frescoed dining room is delightful, and has double glass doors which lead out to the garden. There is a large sitting room also with frescoe ceiling and another lovely more informal living area, a 'salotto'. There is a second open-plan kitchen (with pizza/bread oven) - dining room with wooden beams, vaulted ceiling and cotto floors which too has a large glass door out to the garden. Also on this level is a bedroom and bathroom.

The impressive stone staircase leads up to the bedroom floor. There are four large double bedrooms, which all have frescos: a large bedroom with a bathroom with shower, a second bedroom which has two large windows, a Grand Hall with frescos and balcony, a bedroom with two windows and a bathroom with shower, and another large bedroom with a bathroom with bath.

A further level upstairs consists of five rooms which could provide additional accommodation that require restoration work.

The villa offers an atmosphere of grandeur and elegance. The frescos, painted ceilings, original tiled floors and the sheer scale of the accommodation offers a sense of history and a wealth of character.

There is an outbuilding of 185 sqm in the grounds, to be restored. There is an existing swimming pool which requires some remedial work.

The garden and land area extends to 6,000 sqm.

Vinci, so called as it is the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, hosts a museum dedicated to his work, with hundreds of drawings and models of his inventions. Vinca is a beautiful walled 'citta' within the municipality of Florence.

Distances: Vinci 4 kms, Empoli 7 kms, 25 kms Florence, Pisa airport 60 kms.
