Villa Fortuna 10

4 Reviews

Description

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Villa Fortuna is set in the enchanting hilly landscape south of Florence, in the comune of Bagno a Ripoli, not far from the medieval borgo of Grassina and from Ponte a Ema, reference point for all shopping and services. Located in a hill position, it has a splendid view over the neighbouring villages and Florence, dominated by the famous Brunelleschi dome. Its origins date back to 1600 but careful restoration has completely renovated it, providing it with a modern and efficient home automation system. Inside are floors of Umbrian terracotta and walls of warm and welcoming tones. The precious furnishings give life to a refined combination of antique and modern in the way they perfectly unite the elegance of the accessories with funcionality and comfort. The beautiful veranda that extends along the terrace and then along the large pool offers guests the opportunity of enjoying picturesque landscapes in the tranquillity of the garden, caressed by a continuous breeze that mitigates the heat of summer days. Given its strategic position, just five kilometres from Piazza Ferrucci in Florence, the villa is an excellent departure point for daily visits and excursions to the major Tuscan centres (San Gimignano, Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Volterra), as well as for spending splendid evenings in this beautiful, world-renowned art city. Please attention: No smokers house.

Interior

Villa Fortuna has three floors connected by stairs and a lift, plus a panoramic tower. The main door leads into a large entrance hall which then leads on to the billiard room with lounge/TV area with maxi screen, a hallway with lift and guest bathroom, a sitting room, a dining room (the latter with access to the veranda) and, finally, the kitchen (accessible up a short flight of stairs). On the first floor is another sitting room and the sleeping area consisting of a twin bedroom, three double bedrooms, a dressing room, a bathroom with shower and a bathroom with tub. This floor is completed by the master bedroom with double bed and ensuite bathroom with shower and tub. This room leads to the tower consisting of a room with gym area. The laundry room is located in the basement.

Park

The 5000 sq m park around the villa is completely enclosed by a a wire mesh fence and hedge screens. It is accessed through an electric gate with remote-controlled opener leading to two parking areas located conveniently close to the main entrance door. The French windows of the living room and dining room open out onto a charming veranda that forms a natural extension of the living area of the house, set up with a dining table and outdoor kitchen with wood oven (ideal for cooking pizza), barbecue, sink and countertop, practicable during the cooler seasons too as the veranda is equipped with hermetic curtains so that it can be closed on all sides and heated quickly, thanks to the use of gas pyramidal heaters. The veranda extends onto a panoramic terraced surface furnished with armchairs and tables: from here, a flight of steps leads to the pool area in front. In the garden, where paved surfaces alternate with areas of lawn enlivened by cypresses and olives, roses and lemons, flowerbeds, boxwoods and trees of various kinds, are two football goal posts.

Swimming Pool

The infinity pool is located at a lower level in respect to the villa, which is about 15 m away and is reached from the terrace in front of the veranda down one of the two flights of steps at the sides of the pool area. The rectangular pool, with PVC lining and salt purification, measures 5 x 17.5 m. It is accessed by descending a step of 0.50 m and then a further 3 steps before it slopes down to the maximum depth of 1.90 m. In the terracotta-paved area surrounding it are sunbeds, a shady gazebo and a waterfall shower with both hot and cold water. The pool has both internal and external lighting and so can be used in the evening as well. It is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October.
