Details

This attractive well-maintained and spacious villa on three floors creates a striking impression surrounded by olive trees and a mature woodland to the rear. It is secluded but not isolated, with panoramic views to the distant mountains. Set away from the main road, it has a private drive with ample secure parking and a large internal garage.

The total habitable space of almost 300 sq.mt. is currently configured with a ground floor apartment (approx 96 sq.mt.) of one bedroom, one bathroom, kitchen, open-plan dining room and lounge with large open fire. On the first floor – with its own private entrance – you will find two double bedrooms and a generously-sized single bedroom (could easily take a double bed), two bathrooms, dining room with private balcony, lounge with open fire, a study (which could double as a fourth bedroom), laundry and boiler room (off the garage), and kitchen opening onto a private south-facing terrace for al fresco dining and garden. On the top floor is a large open-plan area (approx 45 sq.mt.) that can accommodate two double bedrooms or a games room with its own toilet. All three floors have internal access.

Central heating is oil-fired and LPG gas used for cooking.

With no properties above or on either side, total privacy is virtually guaranteed.

This property enjoys excellent road access to some of the best cafes, restaurants and gelateria, an abundance of shops, open-air markets (on selected days every week), supermarkets in Borgo a Mozzano and Bagni di Lucca, the train stations at Bagni di Lucca and Borgo a Mozzano, and Bagni di Lucca's famous natural spas and casino; all of which are only minutes drive away. The nearby arterial roads provide easy access to Lucca (approx 25kms), Pisa (with its international airport) and the beautiful Mediterranean beaches (approx 50kms) and Florence (a little over a 100kms to the east). And if skiing is your thing, then one of Italy's "best-kept secrets" – the tree-lined resort of Abetone – is approximately 40 minutes drive to the north. The rivers Lima and Secchio run close by and are favourite spots for fishing, swimming, white-water rafting and kayaking. The surrounding mountains of the Apuane and the Apennine provide some of the most stunning walking tracks you will find in Italy.

This area of Tuscany is steeped in history, and with low humidity, an estimated 2,500+ hours of sunshine a year and average temperatures from spring through autumn ranging from mid 20C to high 30C, it has become a favourite choice for property buyers from Scandinavia, the UK and Continental Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

This attractive villa is priced to sell quickly and is being sold privately, saving the buyer around €14,000 in Italian real estate agency fees. It is now vacant, the owner having moved to a smaller property in Bagni di Lucca.
