ITALY, TUSCANY, LUCCA
Prestigious Art Nouveau villa of 670 sqm with private park of 6000 sqm and barn to renovate, in the heart of Lucca, a stone’s throw from the city walls.
The villa was built in 1903 based on the design of a famous Lucchese architect and is one of the most important examples of Art Nouveau architecture present in Lucca.
It is on 4 levels for a total area of about 670 sqm.
The ground floor includes a dining room, kitchen diner, a bathroom and the elegant double living room in addition to the beautiful glass veranda overlooking the garden.
The imposing stone staircase leads to the second floor where there are 4 bedrooms, one main bedroom with walk-in closet and three double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a small study with terrace.
The second floor consists of attic rooms for attic use with two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Accompanying the property is a former barn used as a garage on two floors of about 150 square meters and lemon house in addition to additional volume to be recovered.
The barn to be renovated offers the possibility of obtaining a second, completely independent living unit, such as an annex for guests, service staff or fitness area.
The villa is set in its lush private park of about 6,000 square meters embellished with majestic trees dating back to the period when the villa was built.
Condition and finishes
The finishes are the original ones, ensuring the charm of the period is unaltered.
