Named for the incredible palette of greens that characterise the beautiful Chianti region, La Verdiana lives up to the promise of its surroundings in its historic elegance and stately magnificence. Nestled among vineyards and olive groves, and shaded by an ancient forest, Verdiana lies in the heart of Chianti surrounded by charming villages and renowned vineyards. It is a perfect spot for wine lovers but also seekers of culture with Florence just 40 minutes away and Siena 60 minutes away. The nearest village of Greve is a mere eight-minute drive and the airport is only 45 minutes away. The home is composed of the main villa building and two separate cottages and so is ideal for a large group of family or friends. Tuscan heritage is preserved in the gorgeous traditional stonework and terracotta shingles on the exterior and, inside, through original materials of magnificent wooden beams, stone and cotto floors. White walls and beams create a sublime sense of drama throughout the spaces and graceful antiques add style and splendour. The welcoming living room is focused around a grand fireplace, with sumptuous sofas and a delightful vintage bookcase. A further, even more splendid, sitting room provides a space for everyone to come together and connect, whether round the fireside or the grand piano. The wonderfully light and elegant dining room uses gentle lighting and sweeping ivory drapes to create a delicious, glowing ambience and the table has room for everyone. A cosy TV room boasts plush and vibrant seating: perfect for curling up together. The professional-standard kitchen is a stylish, monochrome space, packed with state-of-the-art appliances and an impressive stove. It also has direct access to the veranda so outdoor dining is easy. There's also a professional-level, air-conditioned gym with a sumptuous Turkish bath. The ten capacious bedrooms have a regal air, with vaulted beamed ceilings, expansive floors and opulent furnishings. There are three king suites, three queen suites and four twins, split across the three buildings, all with sumptuously appointed bathrooms. Outside are numerous shaded patios and terraces, ranging from grand al fresco dining spaces to cosy reading nooks and sublime sunny spots. The main veranda provides a deeply comfy sitting area as well as a dining table where spectacular climbing roses fill the air with fragrance. The salt water pool sits in shining emerald lawns with loungers scattered about to soak up the rays. In the centre of the exquisite gardens stands a mighty oak tree: a guardian who has stood watch over this magnificent home for centuries and now shades you with its boughs. All around are stunning vistas of the Tuscan countryside and every shade of green working together in perfect harmony.
