Country houses for sale

Exceptional Italian villa

Villa Serena, a 19th century Tuscan villa which has been beautifully restored is new to the market and provides the amenities and convenience of modern living with the ambience and heritage of an old Tuscan villa.

Facing south and west, the accommodation is arranged over two floors and has been restored, not only to maximise the use of space, but also to ensure that the principal accommodation makes the most of the incredible views of the landscaped gardens as well as the countryside beyond.

The layout is suited both to a family property and also to entertaining. Indigenous stone has been used throughout the restoration and the majority of woodwork has been made by local craftsmen, as are the ironwork, the fireplaces and much of the outdoor furniture, while the mosaic-work in the pool was made in Murano and installed by hand.

The property is spread over 600sq m and comprises an entrance hall, reception room, dining room, outside dining area, cloakroom, exercise room, kitchen, wine cellar, study, sitting room, two guest bedroom suites, two childrens’ bedroom suites, master bedroom suite with a wide open terrace and a further bedroom with terrace.

There is also separate staff accommodation, garage and covered parking for four cars, a heated swimming pool and a summer kitchen and living room with changing rooms and a shower.

All in all the villa stands in about an acre of grounds, just 3km from the centre of Florence (12k from the airport).

The price is on application only. For further information, please contact Knight Frank on + 44(0)20 7861 5013.
