Basking in radiant sunlight, this tranquil Tuscan estate is situated just five minutes from the centre of historic Arezzo. Built in traditional terracotta, with charming green window shutters, the three-level home was designed in a classic farmhouse style with 2,043 square feet of interior space. The storied villa has been carefully restored respecting the Tuscan traditions of style and local materials. Tuscan cotto floors and wood-beamed ceilings are found on the upper floor while ancient stone is utilized on the lower floor.
A bedroom with bathroom and private entrance to the lower gardens is positioned on the first floor along with a wine cellar, kitchen, dining room, and living room with fireplace. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms provide ample accommodations on the second floor, and two rooms enjoy spectacular views of the valley and vineyards below from wide windows, plus private access to the gardens surrounding the swimming pool.
A separate two-story, 488-square-foot guesthouse incorporates a broad, open-plan reception area with three bedrooms. The residence also features a conservatory annex with a first-floor orangery, professional kitchen, storage rooms, and a garage. Outside, two gazebos, one with a large oven for baking delicious breads, offer picturesque retreats. Nearby, the serene swimming pool is complemented by a lush landscape of olive trees and plentiful greenery, and surrounded by hills cultivated with vineyards.
Villa dei Limoni occupies a perfect secluded location in the Tuscan countryside with the added benefit of convenient proximity to Arezzo with its numerous cultural sites and unforgettable architecture. The Etruscan Museum, the Roman amphitheatre, and the well-known frescoes of Piero della Francesca are all found in Arezzo along with delicious Tuscan cuisine in an abundance of wonderful restaurants. The acclaimed film, La vita è bella,directed by Roberto Benigni and winner of 3 Academy Awards, was set in this enchanting town. A very attractive and interesting city in itself, Arezzo is also less than half an hour from Cortona (made famous in Under the Tuscan Sun) and romantic Florence.
