This elegant villa with a panoramic view of the surroundings is located in the neighbourhood of Porta al
Prato, where the ancient walls of the city stood before Florence became the capital of Italy from 1865
The villa dates back to the beginning of the 20 th century and measures approximately 650 m 2 (6996
ft 2 ) overall and has three floors. The Italian garden and the setback position from the road guarantee
privacy to the villa.
The hallmarks of this villa are the tower, which offers a panoramic view of the city, the Liberty style, the
decorated and inlaid coffered ceilings, the frescoes and the main staircase in Carrara marble.
The villa has two entrances. The first, and main one, is located on the raised ground floor, which is
accessed by a small stone staircase, and has a decorated wrought iron door. The service entrance is
instead located on the back and it leads to the lower ground floor which houses the kitchens, technical
rooms, closets and cellars. Those were, in the past, the spaces of the villa's servants.
The main entrance brings directly to the large hall. The main staircase in Carrara marble and wrought
iron with floral motifs (acanthus leaves and quadrilobed flowers) immediately catch the eye. Here the
coffered ceilings make their first appearance.
On the ground floor there are three double living rooms with double exposure, a kitchen with a
dumbwaiter and a lavatory. The large solid wood windows give an extraordinary brightness to the
rooms. The staircase leads to the upper floor, home to a sleeping area composed of four double en-suite
bedrooms with two balconies, one of them on the main façade.
From this floor a comfortable stair leads to the mezzanine floor which is characterized by three large
windowed attic rooms and an additional windowed lavatory. Continuing the stairs we finally arrive at the
roof terrace on the tower which offers, as already mentioned, a panoramic view of the surroundings of
The property includes an Italian garden, an outbuilding, a garage and a storage room above it which measures about 60 m 2 (645 ft 2 ).
