Marvelous semi detached farmhouse with little garden and lake – Florence
Cozy semi detached country house with private garden and little pond located just outside Bagno a Ripoli town, with a wonderful opening towards countryside. The house is in very good shape and perfectly renovated with design elements that know how to combine old style with all new technologies and materials to make the house a unique listing, also thanks to the garden and the pond that enriches it.
Bagno a Ripoli little town is located south of Florence, close to the hills that separate the city from the Florentine area of Chianti. A territory crossed by the Arno river which, in combination with the particular microclimate, makes the soil extremely fertile giving oil and wine crops benefit above all. Surrounding hills give the landscape a particular beauty with cypresses, vineyards, and colored spots of villas giving a feeling of peace and quietness.
The hills of Bagno a Ripoli are characterized by large historic villas and small villages made up of small group of houses close to each other, once peasant's houses. Accessing roads to these houses are easy, making them livable all year round.
The semi-detached farmhouse has a great privacy, with a very particular structure, being placed on different levels that are connected to each other by a few steps, with a little difference in levels. Main entrance opens onto a large room with very high ceilings where a typical fireplace dominates, to the left the large kitchen, made in what was once the stable, worthy of note is the manger placed along one of the sides of the room, left purposely unaltered to give uniqueness to the house as if it were a piece of furniture.
Few steps upwards lead to master bedroom area, with a sitting room that could easily become a fourth bedroom, main bedroom, bathroom, and two comfortable and spacious walk-in closets.
Some steps down, lead to the remaining part of the sleeping area, where there are two large bedrooms that share a bathroom. Several wardrobes and closets were created in some corners of the house.
A delightful spiral staircase connects different levels on the opposite side of the house, reaching the level below, where there is laundry room, a bedroom with a bathroom.
State and finishes

Old details were completely recovered and brought to new life and new splendor, while new materials, using crystals, stones, glass, steel was wisely mixed up, giving the final renovation a unique taste and charm.
The garden which is accessed through an imposing wrought-iron gate and all fenced embraces the house and lies at its feet, enriched by the delightful pond where is possible to swim in summertime and the wooden gazebo where is possible to spend the warmest summer evenings alone or with friends. The position of the garden guarantees good privacy from neighbors.
