Property currently used as a restaurant but which can be converted into a private villa.

Located in a splendid panoramic position in the heart of Garfagnana, between the Rocca di Camporgiano and the Fortezza di Verrucole.

The property features a swimming pool and a large plot of land.

Built in the late 1990s and renovated in 2012 with the partial closure of a portion of the porch to increase interior space, the building offers good quality finishes, although it currently requires restoration and renovation work.

The property comprises a large entrance hall, a spacious dining room, spaces for food storage and meal preparation, a wood-fired oven and bathrooms, for a total area of approximately 230 sqm.

The mostly enclosed porch, located on the southeast sides and covering an area of about 130 sqm, increases the gross floor area of the property to approximately 360 sqm.

The property includes a plot of land of 5,523 sqm, with a swimming pool measuring 12 x 6 meters and a paved sunbathing area. The pool liner and the recirculation and filtration unit need replacement.

Near the building, there is a lake fed by underground springs, not included in the sale price.

The listing presents both images of the current state of the property and photos of how it looked before the renovation works when the porch was partially open. This dual representation is useful for evaluating possible design choices, especially in the case of a transformation into a villa, where the porch would represent both an aesthetic and functional value.

To this end, a design hypothesis is shown, which includes a spacious living room, a dining room, a kitchen, four large double bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a utility room. Overall, the villa will cover a gross floor area of approximately 232 sqm, with 94 sqm of living area and 138 sqm of sleeping area. The external porch will extend for 122 sqm. The structure is made of reinforced concrete, allowing for intervention on non-load-bearing walls during construction or demolition works, reducing costs.

Distances: Castelnuovo di Garfagnana 10 km, Lucca 57 km, Pisa 74 km, Versilia (sea) 57 km, Florence 140 km.
