Owning property in Marignolle offers the dual pleasures of immersion in the Tuscan countryside and easy access to Florence. This contemporary home in particular is also a refreshing contrast to the numerous ornate historical buildings in the area. Moreover, the surrounding private park land allows the villa's simple lines to shine.
About those marble walls: they're pale-gray refined travertine, with numerous wide windows that showcase nature from every room in the house. Among the home's three bedrooms are two 430-square-foot suites with private bathrooms. An en-suite double bedroom, a study, and a fourth bathroom round out the property. Interiors are spare, with parquet floors and bright white walls—here's where you could go wild displaying colorful modern art.
Floor-to-ceiling glass doors in the living room and dining area offer panoramic views, and open onto a wooden terrace. That brings us to another fantastic feature of this villa, the infinity swimming pool, a bright strip of blue against all the greenery. Measuring 45-by-7 feet, it's ideally perched for gazing at the dreamy scenery while lazily paddling around. And doing so could very well inspire you to get out and explore the castles and small towns of Tuscany.
Along with the pool, the outdoor space also features a gazebo, a barbecue, and a garden of Cypress, olive, and oak trees. And while serenity seems a defining quality of this villa, it would also make an undeniably spectacular setting for gatherings. With Florence about 20 minutes away, and the Autostrada and Florence train station both within five miles, your guests shouldn't have trouble finding the place.
