Nestling on a beautiful hill between Florence and Pisa, this villa and surrounding estate are situated in the heart of the tranquil Tuscan countryside.
Our design brief was to remodel the existing villa internally, but the main project was the partial rebuild of an existing out building (barn) into a luxurious 2 bedroom guest house.
The barn was rebuilt with a sliding glazed wall along the entire south façade. This wall allows access to the terrace and creates a panoramic view over the stunning Tuscan landscape. The original timber trusses were recreated with a timber soffit to the sloping ceiling, resulting in a lovely open plan design.
To complement the new guest house, a swimming pool, terraces, gardens, pergolas and a fully equipped tennis court were installed.
Inside the existing main house, the use of the finest Carrara marble transformed the existing five bathrooms. Installation of a new open plan family kitchen / dining area complete the internal re-modelling to perfection.
