Villa Gelsomino is a refined villa 15 minutes drive from Florence. The property has 2 entrances. An elegant wooden gate gives access to pedestrians from the street and opens to a lovely outdoor patio and eating area equipped with sofas and BBQ area. Another private driveway leads to an outdoor parking lot at the rear of the property with covered parking spaces- both entrances are equipped with an automatic gate.
The main villa measures 233 sq m (2508 sq ft) and has been recently renovated with a modern finish. The main feature is the brightness of the spaces. The entrance leads to a vast and luminous living room with wall-mounted TV and large windows, next to it is a very bright studio with windows overlooking the garden. The large dining room also holds a mezzanine floor that offers a room now used as a study that can easily be transformed into a sleeping area conveniently accessible through an independent staircase. The kitchen area is equipped with an automatic door that opens into the dining room. With a modern style stainless steel furnishing, the kitchen is well equipped with all conveniences and appliances. The kitchen has an external door that opens onto a lounge area paved in wood and protected by umbrellas.
From the dining room, a small staircase leads to two sleeping areas where we find the master bedroom, a bathroom and a bedroom currently used as a dressing room (which could go back to being a bedroom). The descending staircase leads to the lower floor where there is: 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, a laundry room, and access to the outdoor garden.
The property also includes an outbuilding of 95 sq m – 1022 sq ft composed of a living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and 1 bathroom; this annex has been renovated with a simpler yet modern and welcoming style.
The garden around the villa is green and very vibrant and equipped with a relaxation area and spaces for outdoor dining with a table and a BBQ. There is also a small lemon house to protect plants in the winter. The municipality approved the project to create a swimming pool in the garden. The project foresees an elegant staircase that goes down from the house to the pool area where we can find a wooden patio area and outdoor shower. The style of the approved project balances the elegant modern design of the house with the picturesque Tuscan landscape surrounding it.
The property has a private well with sufficient water for current use and the projected swimming pool.
