Adjacent to the house in the lovely garden is a private swimming pool with wonderful views of the Florentine Chianti hills beyond.
The villa itself is built on the two levels. The ground level has a light and airy atmosphere thanks to the large windows and patio doors which open onto the lovely terrace and garden. Set out in beautiful open plan style with very tasteful furnishings and many antiques is the living area, which consists of a lounge area with stone surround fireplace and settees, a dining area with table, chairs and fireplace, and a further sitting area also with comfy sofas. On the same floor is a lovely kitchen well equipped with all modern appliances. A stone staircase leads to a mezzanine floor and the upper level where there is a pretty double bedroom complete with ensuite shower room.

Each bedroom is decorated in a unique manner in very tasteful style and both have sloping ceilings and large automated windows in the roof giving a luminous feel.
