Villa Mariani is the a historical Tuscan villa, with a sober and elegant style, surrounded by a magnificent park and perfectly inserted in the harmonious landscape of the Chianti hills.
Villa Mariani occupies about half of the village of Caposelvi with a great beautiful landscape, which can be seen from the upstairs windows and from the terrace on the front of the villa.
It was built with two levels of approximately 250 sqm each, on an almost square plan.
The facade, on the ground floor has the orginal large wooden door with jambs and round arches in stone and, at the sides, two windows with raised cornices and Tuscan shutters; upstairs there are two other windows and at the center, a large window built in the same style, which gives access to the terrace located above the door, which was also built in stone and surrounded by a railing with ornate wrought iron.
Upon entering, we find a large entrance that opens onto two rooms (a sitting room on the left and one living room on the right) and then on the stone staircases with wrought iron railing that came up on the top floor and finally, the corridor which connects five rooms used as dining room, study, kitchen, pantry and bathroom. The upper floor opens up onto a bright landing with two bedrooms and the hallway which gives access to the bathroom and the remaining four rooms.
All floors are originals from the early last century, built with ceramics of Florentine manufacture; the ceilings are partially wood and brick and mortar, after the restoration carried out in the 1930s, where they maintained also the hand-painted decorations that adorn almost every room, all walls entirely painted with a floral pattern, perhaps dating back to the previous century.
The park surrounding Villa Mariani, designed and built on four levels over the course of the 1930s, it is made, as tradition states, with a landscaped garden, a trellis for walking outdoors, an Italian maze, fruit trees and a small wooded area.
The garden area in the front of the villa is framed by a driveway that allows access to the front of the villa, with a collection of hydrangeas, two fine specimens of palm trees.
Caposelvi is located 5 km from Montevarchi, a primary commercial center slightly south of Florence, where you can easily find all the basic necessities and essential services.
