This is an italian villa! One could say typical of the second half of the 1800ís, seen usually in larger towns such as Florence, Rome, Milan, but the interesting fact is that this villa is not in the city! It is in the middle of the Chianti, Tuscany, countryside, posed on the hills of Chianti, completely private and isolated, encircled by cypresses, olive grooves, and a small but enchanting tree/forest park, that separates the main house from the swimming pool. If you are looking for a villa in the Tuscany countryside outside of Florence, Italy, and want to live in the gentryís style of 1800, with incredible upper class style, at a very good rental rate, you need look no further!

This Tuscany villa padronale, was probably designed by one of the more famous architectural studios of Florence, designed and built with maximum comforts for a famiglia nobile of Florence, Italy, during their stay in the Chianti countryside.

Today, after a year of restoration, including the ceiling frescos in most of the major rooms and bedrooms, maintains its original structural characteristics characterized by a style typical of late neoclassical, 1800ís, but with all the most modern up to date facilities, including an elevator!

This Tuscany villa has 3 floors! The 1st floor of the house is dedicated to lavish salons; living room, dinning room, library, smoking parlor, a spectacular entry/hallway with an elegant stairway, high ceilings, and easy access to the outdoors. There is a professional kitchen next to the dining room, with commercial appliances, to prepare any kind of meal, if so desired! There is a stone terrace at the rear, off the dining room for breakfast and tea, with a spectacular view of the Chianti hillsides. The 2nd floor provides the main bedrooms, 4, all with their own bathrooms, all finished in marble, in extremely high class finishes for fixtures and baths/showers! Two of the bedrooms are suites with their own parlors!

The 3rd floor has 1 bedroom with bathroom, dining room with kitchen, and 1 sleeping sofa; another 1 bedroom with bathroom, dining room with kitchen, and 1 sleeping sofa; and finally, a 2 bedroom apartment, each with a bathroom, 1 dining room, kitchen, and 1 sleeping sofa. This apartment could also be divided up into 2 apartments, if so desired, each with their own separate entrances, but obviously with only 1 kitchen; to be divided between friends, or to rent out separately, but without cooking capabilities.

This house has a 4 story elevator that goes from the basement to the top floor! So if you would like to rent out the whole house, or only the 1st and 2nd floor, you have the convenience of going up and down to get where you need to go efficiently and easily!

The Italian gardens, being completed by Spring of 2006, will be in true tuscany villa style, with plenty of parking, garden paths, several outdoor patios, and a forest path to the swimming pool. This villa is definitely one of the best villa/houses to rent in the Florence/Chianti area!
