Arezzo: This prestigious Villa can be considered one of the greatest examples of rationalist architecture of the province of Arezzo.
The Villa was built in the late'60s on the project of Ing. Luigi Lucherini, at the time a student of the famous Arch. Giovanni Michelucci, one of the masters of Italian rationalist architecture; among countless masterpieces of Maestro Michelucci are remembered the railway station of Santa Maria Novella in Florence and the famous church in Campi Bisenzio (FI) along the 'Highway A1.
The architectural style of the villa recalls in an evident way the clean lines of the Italian Rationalism that the Arch. Michelucci was one of the followers with typical pagoda roofs, which we can see in both the Villa of Calderino, and in the church of San Giovanni Battista. Even the interior of the Villa, made of solid chestnut tailored by Tuscan artisans, are inspired by the design of Italian rationalism; of special mention is the impressive chestnut staircase that leads to the first floor and the majestic Italian stone fireplace of the XVII century.
Building: The Villa (land registry A/7) was completely restored and enlarged in 2012 by its current owner, valuing the precious interior finishes, such as chestnut frames and original terracotta floors. With the expansion of the inner surface of more 50 square meters, it has also created a cottage next to the Villa of further 60 square meters, currently used as a garage for 3 cars. During restoration, the roof of the Villa has been reinforced and insulated using natural insulating materials, have been made new electrical, plumbing, and five new bathrooms; for whitewashing the interior has been used the best non-toxic paints in the world of the famous British company Farrow & Ball. Again in 2012 it was also made the bio-pool placed in the garden in front of the elegant porch of the Villa; on the back patio there is a wood oven built by hand to cook food in a natural way.
The inner surface of the Villa after enlargement is about 600 square meters. In front of the villa around the pool it was built a lawn English style; the Villa is protected by a wood of about 6000 square meters where there is a kitchen garden that provides organic vegetables during the summer season.
