Villa Eleganzia is a magnificent villa spread over three floors, located in the Tuscan countryside just outside of a small town in the Valdarno area. Due to its location on the top of a small hill, it is thought that the villa was once a lookout tower for a nearby castle. It was later transformed into a family villa and was once owned by the renowned Medici family from Florence. The villa is set in a garden with its own private pool and has views to the surrounding countryside and towards the adjacent town, which has a variety of local shops as well as a supermarket, restaurants and bars (1km).The owner is an architect and has recently restored this villa with great flair and attention to detail. The house is superbly equipped and the perfect retreat for large groups. It is the perfect base for exploring Florence (50 mins) and Chianti wine country. It is also within easy reach of Arezzo (30 mins) and Siena (1 hour).
The home is spacious and has been furnished using top quality fixtures and fittings and is very stylish. It retains the original feel of a Tuscan farmhouse but has been restored to provide every modern convenience. The villa has a wonderful elegant feel to it with many individually selected and handcrafted pieces by local tradesmen.
The house is set on large grounds (2 hectares) on the top of a little hill and the garden extends down the slopes into pretty olive groves and orchards. As one of the past owners was an expert in botanics, the garden has some rare species of lime tress from the Lebanon, ancient cypress trees, and a variety of fruit trees as well as olives. A lovely vegetable garden offers fresh delights for guests of the villa.
The pool area is located adjacent to the house on a sunny terrace and can be accessed through glass doors directly from the living room/dining room. The pool measures 4x8 mts and there is an outdoor BBQ and brick oven and a charming area for al fresco dining.
The main entrance opens onto a hallway that leads to an exceptionally spacious and bright living room/dining room featuring an open fireplace, satellite TV, DVD player and stereo CD player. The living room has been very elegantly furnished with handcrafted pieces that have been specially selected. There are several large glass doors leading out to the gardens. The formal dining area has an original vaulted ceiling and a large dining table that can seat up to 12 guests. The large and sunny professionally equipped kitchen has a central work area with a large stove, two ovens, microwave, dishwasher and a large refrigerator. There is a laundry room with a washing machine and dryer. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom with shower.
A staircase leads from the downstairs entrance hall to the second floor where there is a second lounge area with another open fireplace and satellite TV. There are 5 bedrooms on the first floor. Two twin rooms (can be made doubles) share a bathroom with shower. There are three double bedrooms: one with an en-suite bathroom with tub, another with an en-suite bathroom with shower, and the third room shares a bathroom just across the hallway (double sink, shower and tub) with the bedroom upstairs in the tower. Also on this floor is a well-equipped study with two computers with broadband connection and a printer. All bedrooms on the first floor have air conditioning and all bedrooms also have screens on the windows.
On the top floor that climbs up into the ancient tower, there is a pretty twin bedroom with windows on three sides, providing a 360 degree view of the countryside. It shares the bathroom on the second floor landing and also features air-conditioning.
