Splendid villa in Bagno a Ripoli with swimming pool, land and riding school.
It is located in the municipality of Bagno a Ripoli, in the part closest to Florence and close to what will be the new "Cittadella della Fiorentina Calcio". In an area with a great residential vocation and a short distance from the main services, convenient to get to Florence and to reach the major roads of communications. The most famous monuments can be reached in just 15 minutes by car, while that airport - in half an hour.
The original layout of the villa of around 600 sqm dates back to the 70 years, as evidenced by the reinforced concrete structure still clearly visible in the external façade of the villa, however subsequent modernization works have consolidated its structure and made it more responsive to modern building techniques .
Crossing the garden you enter the main villa where a large entrance disengages the various spaces and is bordered at the bottom by a glass wall beyond which a large porch recently adapted represents a space that can be lived comfortably both in summer and during the winter thanks to folding plexiglass curtains and a stove that heats the space. To the right of the entrance there is a large living room that opens the view towards the garden, while a corridor disengages a study in which stands a fireplace and two double bedrooms each with private bathroom. To the left of the entrance there is the dining room and the kitchen with direct access to the garden. On the first floor there is the main sleeping area where there is a small lounge with its fireplace and access to a terrace, the double bedroom with a dressing room and a private bathroom, the bedroom opens onto a large terrace overlooking the garden.
Of the same body as the villa but with an independent entrance are two apartments, both on two floors and both divided as follows: on the ground floor in the living area with kitchen, living room and bathroom, while on the first floor there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. In a more distant wing of the villa there is the service apartment which consists of bedroom, bathroom and kitchen / living room. The semi-basement floor of the villa, which has been divided into several spaces serving the villa and the apartments, has a large common area and several enclosed spaces that can be used as cellars.
The old lemon-house of around 70 sqm, slightly detached from the main villa, has been renovated to make it a shelter for tools on one side and to make it a comfortable studio or space for performing artistic activities or to spend relaxing moments in peace.
Both the villa and the apartments have terraces for a total of 74 sqm, while the courtyard measures approximately 5.000 sqm.
Condition and finishes
The villa is in good maintenance condition. Many modernization works have been carried out, but others still need to be completed to make the property more current and in line with the latest construction and technological techniques.
This magnificent property is set in its own grounds of approximately 30 hectares all fenced. The part closest to the villa, of around 4000 square meters, is a garden characterized by bushes of medicinal herbs that disperse in the air their pleasant fragrance and from bushes of flowers that represent a joy for the eyes with their colors. The pool can be used until late autumn thanks to a removable cover structure raised above the surface. In a corner of the garden there is a bowling alley bordered by the typical stones, while in another part of the garden a small wood in which is located between tall magnolias a wooden house, which represents the typical "house in the woods" and reports adults back in memory of their childhood, while in the younger ones they immediately stimulate their imagination.
A riding stable of around 15 hectares in which there are shelters for horses allows one to easily cultivate one's passion for these fantastic animals. The remaining part of the land can be used as a vegetable garden, orchard or for other types of cultivation.
