A spectacular and beautifully light, Florentine style villa combining a quiet country location, pleasant, open views (including St Paul village) and late sunsets. Built and appointed to a very high standard (in 1995) this prestigious property features a particularly convivial reception/terrace/lawn area encircling the spectacular mirror pool and ideal for large scale entertaining. The impressive list of features includes: an internal jacuzzi/sauna (adjoining the master suite), a vaulted, stone wine cellar (under the dining room), underfloor heating and cooling, a huge gym and a 90 m² underground garage. First impressions are positive thanks to a large carriage turn leading to and from the spacious porch, enhanced with a first pair of stone columns. The glass and wrought iron front doors open directly into the 100 m² main reception, which in turn, via wide French windows, gives onto the terrace and pool. A fully fitted kitchen adjoins the dining room end of this living area, as does the closed study/TV room ; a snug and comfortable sitting area with fireplace is located at the opposite end. Completing this floor is the Jacuzzi/sauna, located on the front façade, literally just one hop from the pool outside. The upstairs commences with a most spectacular gallery mezzanine overlooking the center of the living room and giving access to two terraces, North and South as well as to the three bedrooms. The master suite occupies one end of the building and comprises 2 bathrooms (his and hers), a dressing room and a spiral staircase leading directly down into the jacuzzi. Two guest bedrooms, one of which enjoys a ''Juliette'' balcony, and a bathroom complete this floor. Again at the ground level, but with access via the exterior is a staff bedroom. At the lower garden level : the garage (90 m²), gym (with window), laundry room (with laundry chute), boiler room, wine cellar (access from above), workshop and storage room. The 1 Œ acre grounds have been most attractively landscaped with, most importantly a large, flat lawn extending from the terrace, it also features some century old olive trees and a long and very pretty pathway all the way around the garden.
