ITALY, TUSCANY, LUCCA, BAGNI DI LUCCA

This charming large town house on four floors with garden has interesting origins. Close to the river Lima, it was originally the gardener’s house for the stately Villa Fiori next door. Being quite a humble house compared to the impressive villa, and as the owners of the villa were a well-to-do family, the wall facing the villa was built up by a further couple of metres, and a more noble roofline added, to disguise the lowly house. These features remain.

The house underwent internal restoration a few years ago, including rewiring, and the installation of 2 new kitchens. There are still some improvements which can be made, such as to the exterior and the bathroom. In total the house measures 161 sqm.

The property consists of;

Basement – cellar used as kitchen/dining room, with wood-burning oven. The room retains its rustic features of cotto floor, chestnut beams and brick archway. The old stone washing trough is still in place.

Raised ground floor – living room, second (galley) kitchen with washing machine, hall with dining area.

Stone and wrought iron staircase to first floor.

First floor – two large double bedrooms, large landing, bathroom with small bath and shower over, separate wc.

Second floor – bedroom with twin beds, single bedroom, landing with study area.

The cellar is not connected to the rest of the house by an internal staircase, it is accessed from outside and opens up onto the garden.

Outside there is a pleasant garden (about 60m2) with garden furniture. You can see the surrounding hills, hear the Lima river and see Villa Fiori and its gardens filled with statues and fountains.

Restaurants, shops, bars, post office, gelateria, hairdressers, chemist, thermal baths and historic casino are all within a couple of minutes’ walk.
