Property description

Antique, beautifully restored farmhouse, with magnificent view over the Mugello Valley and the lake of Bilancino.
Large kitchen with all facilities and open fireplace private garden with beautiful view, separate loggia and pergola where you can enjoy your meals 'al fresco'.
Ground floor: kitchen with all the facilities (oven-microwave, dishwasher, fridge, gas fire), two bedrooms (one with double bed, the other with twin beds), bathroom (shower, sink, toilet, bidet). A small storage room with washing machine.
First floor: large living-room with Sky TV-Computer Wi-FI and DVD and CD player, library with books and CD films, second bathroom (bathtub, sink, toilet, bidet), studio with sofa-bed.
We are a couple, architect and painter, living in an old farm house that we have restored with great care.

The home stands on the hilltop overlooking the beautiful Mugello Valley. It’s divided in two units from ground to roof. We live in one part and rent the other unit (sq meters 150), completely independent with its own private entrance, exclusive garden and separate pergola and loggia.

The home is situated in the Mugello Valley, 40 minutes drive from Florence, an area where the famous Medici Family, Princes of Florence, has its origin and where many famous artists from the past were born (Giotto, Beato Angelico, Cimabue).

The house is published in the books “Country Interiors” and “Icons: Tuscan style”, both edited in 6 languages by Taschen.
CREATIVE PAINTING COURSE available on request. The guest is welcome to apply for short creative painting course to take place in the nearby Studio of the Artist.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: We are a couple, an Italian Architect and a Swedish Painter, living in an antique farmhouse that we have restored. It's a traditional Tuscan farmhouse divided in two units: we live in one of them and rent the other, which is nearby and has it's separate entrance and secluded beautiful garden.

Why the Owner Chose Barberino di Mugello, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy:
Living in Florence, years ago we fell in love with this house in the Mugello Valley. We decided to buy it and started the restoration made by skilled local craftsmen. It has been a long, passionate and accurate work and now we live here since 12 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a very special spot, magic and quiet surrounded by beautiful nature. Close to Florence and all the Art Cities. The lake, that you can see from the garden and where you can make nice walks is 10 minutes drive from the house.
