Lucca villa property for sale

This Lucca villa property, dating back to the early years of the 18th century, is located on the low ground with an excellent position to the sun, in a residential area and at the end of a road granting a high level of security.
The villa is located slightly outside the town of Lucca (5km; 10’), situated in very quiet countryside and is easily reachable. Local shops are only a few minutes walking distance and you can cycle to Lucca along the river Serchio in 20 minutes.
Seaside is also at hand, with Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi being only 30 minutes away while for those who love skiing there is Abetone at 1h 30’ by car (70km).
Other Tuscan towns within reach are Florence (99km; 1h 20’), Volterra (102km; 1h 40’) and Siena (153km; 2h).
Useful airports to reach the property are Pisa Galilei (40km; 35’); Firenze Peretola (77km; 55’); Bologna Marconi (142km; 1h 50’); Genova Colombo (167km; 1h 45’); Perugia Sant’Egidio (241km; 2h 30’); Milano Malpensa (330km; 3h 20’) Roma Ciampino (368km; 3h 30’) and Roma Fiumicino (354km; 3h 40’).

The property is made up of two buildings.

The villa (578 sqm – 6,190 sqft) is distributed into three floors, organized as follows:
– Ground floor: guest apartment (80 sqm – 856 sqft) made up of living room, kitchen with original oven (ideal for making pizza), bed and bathroom plus a “cantina” and a garage for 1 or 2 cars.
– First floor: entrance hall, 2 living rooms, dining room, bathroom and kitchen with terrace.
– Second floor: 4 bedroom (convertible to studios), billiard room, 2 bathrooms.

The small outbuilding (about 22 sqm – 235 sqft), once a storage house, needs some reworking to be usable as the owner fits best.

The villa has been finely restored to preserve the original look from the last complete inside renovation early 1900s. The internal staircase is realized in Carrara marble in “Art Deco” style, while most floors are in different colored fine “graniglia” and some in terracotta. Ceilings (uncommonly high) are held by large 1700s wooden beams on the second floor. Inside, there is also a couple of fireplaces, one in the dining room in French “Rococo” style dating back to the 1730s, the others realized in Carrara marble and local stone.
The terrace of the kitchen was built ex-novo respecting the style of the building.
On the outside, the villa is recognizable by the particular symmetry of the façade and the terracotta roof supports.

On the outside, the villa is surrounded by 0.5 hectares (1.2 ac) of garden. The property has a small olive grove which allows the production of enough olive oil for the family. There is also an above-ground pool (8.5 x 5 m) enclosed by a wooden terrace.
Located on a dead end road, a position ensuring a nice degree of security, the house has two main accesses. The first one is historical and is on the front side, nowadays used as a pedestrians-only walkway. The second one was created more recently and allows the access by car to the villa. Just outside this second entrance there is a small place for 2 vehicles, another 2 cars can be parked in front of the principal gate.
The neighboring ca. 4 ha of land, is possibly for sale from a different owner.
