Located on a panoramic hill just outside Florence, Villa Aurora Fiorentina is located so that it catches each ray of Florentine sunshine. The home enjoys a spectacular view over the city centre, located a 15-minute drive away, and the countryside.
The estate consists of the main villa, an out building and a large garage/agricultural annex. The main villa and the out building are connected through the panoramic terrace of a large loggia, which creates a charming ambience and a panoramic viewpoint where you can dine against the spectacular backdrop of the Florentine city centre.
The 8 hectares of property used to be a farmhouse and a barn, part of a large agricultural estate that covered the entire hill. In the late 20th century the property was bought for its panoramic position and completely rebuilt into a luxurious villa with an out building. The property is located on the sunny side of a hill and enjoys sunshine throughout the entire day.
The main villa is divided into four levels. The ground floor has an entrance hall with a stone staircase, a large living room with a cosy fireplace, a dining room with a view over the garden, a family room, a spacious kitchen, a guest bathroom and a laundry room.
The first floor features a master bedroom with a bathroom and walk-in closet, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a second family room, one study with windows overlooking Florence, and one large wooden study with access to the terrace on top of the loggia.
There is an attic space with one bedroom and a bathroom, plus two basement levels with storage and the garage.
The out building and former barn are built at the most panoramic angle of the property and have a 270° view over the lush green valley and the Florentine city centre. Its dining room and living room have large arch-shaped windows that let in the picture-perfect landscape. The building also has 3 luminous bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a kitchen and a panoramic terrace for spectacular outside dining opportunities.
There is a separate agricultural annex located on a terrace under the out building; therefore it is completely invisible to the other buildings of the property. The annex is primarily used for storage. It has high ceilings, large windows, and natural light, leaving the opportunity to restore and repurpose the space to taste.
The structural foundations and general conditions of the property are good. However, the property needs restoration and modernization works. Villa Aurora Fiorentina has been rebuilt with attention to typical Tuscan features such as large fireplaces, arched doors and windows, and wooden beamed ceilings. The floors are made in Tuscan terracotta tiles, wood and pietra dura (a durable locally sourced stone which is no longer quarried).
The buildings of Villa Aurora Fiorentina are concentrated around a central courtyard with lemon trees and typical statues. A green garden with Tuscan vegetation surrounds the property flanked by 8 hectares of land, mostly olive groves.
Villa Aurora Fiorentina presents an opportunity for someone who is looking to restore the buildings to their own taste and benefit from its scenic and sunny location to make a dream of owning a spectacular Tuscan villa come true.
