Historic villa with pool, outbuildings, park, vineyards, olive groves and woodland. Near to the Tuscan town of Capannori.
The property is composed of the villa and three outbuildings.
The villa was built in the 16th century, served as a monastery in the 17th century and later became the residence of one of the most important families of Lucca.
The villa is laid out on two levels plus the basement floor and the attic floor, composed as follows.
Basement floor: cellar.
First floor (with double access): central sitting room, double dining room, living room/TV-room, study, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Still on this floor you will find a porch and a consecrated chapel.
Second floor: large sitting room, six bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Attic floor: currently not habitable.
The outbuilding no. 1 has a rectangular shape and is laid out on three levels.
Basement floor: two cellars and a porch.
Ground floor: four rooms.
First floor: four rooms.
The outbuilding no. 2 has no roof.
The outbuilding no. 3 includes two rooms: one with an antique oven and another one with a narrow tunnel.
The villa, which underwent systematic renovation works from 1998 to 2013, features marble floorings, terracotta flooring, wooden floorings, frescoed walls and ceilings. The altar of the chapel is in Carrara marble.
Two bathrooms of the villa have a shower, one bathroom has a Jacuzzi.
The three outbuildings need renovation works.
The land around the property includes a park, olive grove, vineyard and timber trees.
The park is very well maintained and is enriched by wonderful ornamental plants. The loggia of the villa is ideal for al fresco dining, while the pool and the surrounding lawn area are perfect for relaxing and sunbathing.
Given its dimensions, location and historic value, the villa can be used both as prestigious private home and as luxury tourist accommodation.
The outbuilding no. 1 could be converted into a guesthouse, the outbuilding no. 2 into servants’ quarters.
The villa is less than 1 km from a centre with facilities but it is surrounded by greenery and enjoys excellent privacy. An asphalt road leads to the property, which has two accesses, one pedestrian access and the other for cars.
The villa is within easy reach of Lucca (14km), the main seaside resorts in Versilia — such as
Viareggio (47km), Forte dei Marmi (49km) and Marina di Pietrasanta (50km) — the motorway A11 and Pisa airport (32km). The port of Livorno can be reached in about one hour’s drive.
