Historic villa of '600 completely renovated and tastefully furnished, built around an existing tower in the heart of the Mugello area only 50 minutes from Florence. Given the particular location on top of a hill with a view that sweeps up the plain below, the existing tower was probably used for military purposes as a lookout point. The building is arranged on the three floors, with a square plan, with internal small courtyard, square-shaped, designed to give light to the interior environments. The basement is composed by an ancient oil mill and the former cellars no longer in use. Outside the villa is surrounded by a wide garden more than 3.000 sqm that degrades from the private with irregular curve- linear shape swimming pool (about 12x6 depth 1.4-2m)(01/05-30/09), located at the highest point towards the church, in a wonderful position ideal for sunbathing on the deck and enjoying a refreshing dip in the absolute quiet of the surroundings. Adjacent to the swimming pool there is an annex that can be used as changing room and where is located a small sauna for 4/6 people and a small fitness area. The villa has central heating, baby bed and wi fi internet connection.
