ITALY, TUSCANY, LUCCA
Wonderful historic villa of about 1400 sqm near Lucca, with annexes, and private park of 3000 sqm. Belonging to local noble families over the centuries, it is the perfect combination of impressive architecture which is typical of the 19th century and neoclassical elements with formal and traditional details.
Cosmopolitan Lucca is a wonderful city, surrounded by rolling hills planted with olive trees, well connected to main roads and the beaches of Versilia. The area is strategically placed for reaching to reach the airport of Pisa and the Tuscan cities of art.
A private gate gives access to the courtyard of the villa.
On the ground floor we are greeted by a magnificent columned entrance of considerable artistic value that leads to various service rooms, the kitchen, the tavern and the cellar.
We can appreciate an apartment entirely frescoed and, on the main floor, accessed by a wide staircase of Matraia stone with cast iron railing, a second apartment.
The noble atmosphere of the property is characterised by large reception rooms, sumptuous living rooms and a bright dining area. In the sleeping area, there are 11 large double bedrooms with a closet area and seven bathrooms.
From the magnificent terrace and the large balcony you can admire the well-maintained outdoor space as well as the surrounding countryside.
The villa has annexes – an old stable and a wagon shed for a total of about 180 square meters, which could be used for guests or converted into a spa.
Condition and finishes
The property is in good condition both internally and externally but the systems need checking and may need updating.
The large halls are characterised by frescoed ceilings and the imposing central staircase has romantic country scenes. The floors are in ancient terracotta, and present are ancient fireplaces. In particular the apartment on the top floor and the annex are to be restored.
The park of about 3000 square metres is completely fenced and planted with fruit trees, mature trees, oaks and palms.
It is possible to install a swimming pool.
It is possible to buy further land from a neighbouring property – approx 1 hectare.
The perfect property for a large family who wants to live in the countryside but not far from all services. The transformation into a boutique hotel is possible and would be very valid due to the location and available space.
