Property Description

Villa for sale in Scarperia, near Florence. It once was the summer country house of the Medici family, as can be seen in the Mugello guide written by Prof. Niccolai and published in Borgo San Lorenzo in 1914. The construction of the villa, in its original form, dates back to 1580 and is architecturally similar to the Rectory of the Parish of San Piero a Sieve, which was rebuilt for Bernardo de' Medici in 1550. The villa includes beamed decorated ceilings and, in the main hall, in a bas-relief in pietra serena placed in the old fireplace lintel, the coat of arms of the Medici Family. In front of the villa there is a Chapel dedicated to S. Antonio Abate. The villa once belonged to the descendants of Alamanno de' Medici, who founded the Church of San Bartolomeo in Petrona. In 1616, the villa belonged to Ottaviano de' Medicì, the husband of Selvaggia D'Alessandro from the Guasconi noble family. This family later sold the villa to Mr. Egidio Casini of Rabatta, whose coat of arms "a Knight in arms with a rampant lion and the head encircled by a Crown with three balls" is placed above the entrance door. The Villa is surrounded by a century-old park of more than 5000 square meters, where there is an impressive and majestic monumental Oak listed among the top 10 secular plants in Italy. The Villa for sale in Scarperia (FI) is located in a private area though is served by public transport and is close to the stores.
