Fiesole. The historical residence where the property is located is in Fiesole, just a few miles away from Florence’s city center. The villa’s position represents, without a doubt, one of the qualities of real estate. From the fourteenth-Century, Fiesole has been considered one of the exclusive suburbs of Florence and remains today the richest City Council of the whole Tuscany, where significant celebrities live.
The district overlooks Florence’s cathedral and historic center looking south, the countryside and the vineyard pointing north. The apartment, located on the ground floor, makes part of a residential villa which access is granted by a big gate and a typical cypress lane. Villa Machiavelli, dating back to sixteenth-Century, once belonged to the Machiavelli family, and it’s therefore recognized as an essential historic dwelling.
The apartment’s ground floor is about 3,660 sqft, with an attached wonderful private garden accessible through a suggestive vaulted and frescoed hall of about 80 m². The living area is on the left of a big reception hall with a wide kitchen and a big dining room with period-style décor. The sleeping area is on the right side of the hall, and it’s made up of three bedrooms, each one with a private bathroom and dressing room. Besides being provided with a private bathroom, the guest room is also equipped with a mezzanine and a relaxing area. Through an apartment internal staircase and a condominium elevator, it’s possible to access the basement and the private garage. The basement of about 140 m² holds some service rooms such as the laundry, the pantry, and a spectacular wellness area with an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a steam bath, and a fitness area.
