NOBLE MANOR FOR SALE
The historical Villa Torre a Soli rises in the medieval village of Galliano, not far from Florence, in a position that allows you to admire the landscape of the hills of Mugello. The Villa, still under renovation, has a garden, a park and a swimming pool with a panoramic view. The dwelling has expanded throughout the centuries. A central building, from the 13th century, and Torre Nord, former house of the caretaker, were added to a Medieval Tower, which dates back to the 11st century. The basement, wide and stunning, is beneath almost the whole building. The Villa can be easily divided in three detached dwellings, each one with at least four bedrooms. The whole property is fenced, and it is provided with an internal parking and a gravel pathway.
