Roughly 3 km from the historic center of Arezzo, in a beautifully panoramic position with view over the city, this villa is the result of the conversion of an old orangery into two residential units.
The location of the villa is extremely private but at the same time very close to amenities and services. We are halfway between Siena and Florence. From the villa one can easily reach several other interesting towns of Tuscany among which the beautiful Cortona, the wine cities of Montepulciano and Montalcino, the unique Pienza, San Gimignano with its imposing towers, the Umbrian towns of Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Todi. Even Rome, though a bit farther away (213 km), is easily reached thanks to the proximity with the A1 highway junction.
The most convenient airports to reach the property are Perugia San Francesco, Firenze Vespucci, Pisa Galilei, Bologna Marconi, Roma Ciampino and Roma Fiumicino.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The villa (390 sqm – 4,196 sqft, 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms) is the result of the union of two older buildings and is split nowadays into two independent units, made up as follows:
- West apartment (2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms):
- Ground floor: entrance hall, hallway, kitchen with fireplace with access to the garden and pantry, laundry and ironing room, technical room and bathroom;
- First floor: two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.
- East apartment (3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms):
- Ground floor: entrance room, formal dining room, living room with fireplace and access to the garden;
- First floor: master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in-closet, two bedrooms and bathroom.
Right below the pool there are a dressing room (30 sqm – 323 sqft) and a kitchen (10 sqm – 108 sqft) plus an ample covered space (100 sqm – 1,076 sqft, currently used for events) which could be exploited to build a spa or a guesthouse.
The access road winds through the olive grove and ends at the rear of the villa into a graveled apron where one could easily park a few cars. The land covers a total surface of roughly 2.7 hectares (6.7 acres).
Right in front of the villa, a graveled apron offers a convenient outdoor space to relax with a gazebo to enjoy the pleasant Tuscan climate during Summer.
Still in front of the villa, on a slightly lower terrace, there is a beautiful pool area with an ample 20 × 10 m with direct view over the historic center of Arezzo. The pool is surrounded by an ample terracotta-paved solarium under which the event hall lies.
The pool and the surrounding solarium both need restoration and improvement to be brought back to their original shape.
