A villa ﬁt for a marchese in the Italian countryside awaits.
The villa is among the most remarkable of the many international properties available through Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty’s partnerships and affiliations throughout the world from Dubai, Delhi, and London to Lisbon, Mexico City, and Madrid.
A retreat in hills of Tuscany on your wish list? This glorious historic villa near Pisa may be just the ticket. Built for a noble family in the 1700s on 2.7 acres of parklike grounds surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and woods, the four-story 16,360-square-foot domain known as Villa Delle Baccanti is an 18th-century idyll refreshed and revitalized for contemporary living. “It’s a magniﬁcent property, meticulously restored,” says listing associate Vicki Restivo of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty. “It’s like stepping back into history, its beauty takes your breath away.”
Located near a small village about an hour from Florence, the interiors of the $4.1 million manor brim with precious frescoes, many painted by 18th-century painter Luigi Ademollo, and most glittering with touches of pure gold. Grandiose great rooms lead to a series of dining spaces, studies, sitting rooms, bedrooms, and even a private chapel all of which open onto vast views of the Tuscan countryside.
Set amid paths ﬂanked by manicured hedges, the eleven-bedroom property is a spectacularly luxurious family getaway. “It could just as readily serve as a corporate executive retreat, or it could function as an outpost of a university or school for hosting students, or even work well as a spa,” suggests Restivo, who collaborates on the listing with an Italian counterpart from MG Studio Immobigliari.
