As shown in the first photos that precede the photos of the apartment for sale, the property is part of a remarkable gated estate, Torre di Sopra, consisting of a tower, dating from the 12thc, with three internal courtyards surrounded by buildings, mentioned in Renato Stopani's book Medievale Case da Signore nelle campagne fiorentine. The celebrated architect Bruno Sacchi, a pupil of Adalberto Libera and collaborator of Giovanni Michelucci, acquired the property in 1976 and restored it, revealing a 13thc loggia and three rooms decorated with frescoes dating from the early 14thc, and including the crest of the powerful Florentine Peruzzi family who owned the house. The house for sale in Bagno a Ripoli, Florence, has been recently renovated posthumously following Bruno Sacchi's project, combining a modern approach within the specific features of an ancient building. There is already an alarm system, and duct work in place for air conditioning. Only some finishing work is required [first floor floors, sanitary ware, and doors] which the owner intends to carry out in agreement with the buyer's taste. The property is close to two attractive villages, Osteria Nuova and Antella, where there are shops, a supermarket, banks and a small local market. The property is also adjacent to a kindergarten.
