ITALY, TUSCANY, LUCCA, PIEVE SANTO STEFANO
This fully renovated country home is set in the idyllic outskirts of Lucca, only 10 km from the ancient town walls.
The panorama from the hill is superlative and the climate here is just perfect. The house has thick walls which make it ideal in summer as it needs no air conditioning for it is naturally cool in the inside no matter how hot the Tuscan summers can be at times.
The current owners have paid attention to every detail of the house, from fly screens to bathroom fittings, marvellous floorings and high quality materials throughout.
The property is on two floors, ground and first, it comprises a spacious kitchen/diner, a double living room with fireplace (this double living room could easily be divided in one living room and one dining room), a storeroom, a study on the mezzanine overlooking the living area, three bedrooms, all of which are en-suite, a laundry room and an additional bathroom.
Outside, a lovely garden in front of the house and more land, with olive trees, around it. Before deciding to sell, the owners were on their way to present a project for the installation of a swimming pool and the building of garages and a sunbathing area.
A small ruin measuring circa 46 sq.m is also part of this property. This is great news considering that Tuscany is very strict when it comes to building new properties in country areas. In most areas, permission to build is in fact subject to the presence of old ruins.
