In the Valdarno, not far from a town providing all the services, this 19th-century Leopoldina is a classic example of a typical Tuscan countryside villa. With 870 sqm of surface and 6 bedrooms, the property is perfect both as a private residence and as a possible starting point for a hosting business. On the outside we have 9.0 hectares of land and a 15 x 7 m swimming pool.
Not far from a center with all the services (1km; 5’), the leopoldina is located in an easily reached location and grants a quick access to the most interesting and renowned cities of Tuscany: Arezzo (18km; 25’), the medieval Siena (54km; 1h), the Renaissant Firenze (62km; 1h 5’), the wine town of Montepulciano (62km; 1h), the beautiful medieval hamlet of Monteriggioni (73km; 1h 5’) and the turreted San Gimignano (102km; 1h 35’). The most useful airports to reach the property are Firenze Peretola (82km; 1h 5’), Perugia Sant’Egidio (113km; 1h 25’), Pisa Galilei (143km; 1h 45’), Bologna Marconi (164km; 1h 55’), Roma Ciampino (241km; 2h 30’) e Roma Fiumicino (255km; 2h 35’).
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The leopoldina (approximately 620 sqm – 6,671 sqft) is laid out onto three floors as follows:
- Ground floor: tool recovery, dressing room, 3 cellars, storage room and WC;
- First floor: veranda, living/dining room, walk-in closet, WC, sitting room, kitchen with dining area, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms;
- Second floor: bedroom, bathroom and balcony.
The annex on the right (120 sqm – 1,291 sqft) is currently being used as dependance and is laid out onto two floors and made up of kitchen, dining room, storage room/cellar and two bedrooms, two bathroom and walk-in closet.
The annex on the left (130 sqm – 1,399 sqft) is a two-story warehouse made up of four rooms in total.
STATE AND FINISHES
The property, dating back to the 19th century, has been recently restored so to preserve all of its main characteristics. The leopoldina is typical, with a portico on the ground floor, a loggia on the first floor and a dovecote (nowadays converted into bedroom). On the inside, countryside residences’ characteristics have all been preserved: terracotta floors, wooden beams with terracotta tiles on the ceilings, wooden trusses, masonry barrel and rib vaults decorated with geometrical motives and wooden fixtures.
On the outside, the property (9.0 hectares) is fitted with a garden enclosed by the three buildings and the 15 x 7 m swimming pool.
USE AND POTENTIAL USES
The villa is perfect as a private residence thanks to its quiet location, not too isolated and granting access to the necessary services. Alternatively, given the presence of up to two dependances, it is possible to start a hosting business, keeping one of the buildings for itself and earmarking the other two for the guests. The annex on the left, in fact, can be easily converted into a second dependance.
