Not far from Lucca, in a quiet location but close to a well-supplied village, renovated luxury farmhouse with guesthouse and swimming pool. The property (900 sqm) consists of two residential buildings and some agricultural outbuildings and has a total of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms distributed between the farmhouse and the barn. The renovation has preserved the salient features of the building and added refined and elegant touches that catch the eye. No less than 4.0 hectares of land include the garden (10,000 sqm) and the 12 × 6 m swimming pool.
The services are all available in the nearby village (about 250 m) and are easily accessible on foot. However, the village remains beyond the property's woods and is therefore hidden from view, without any infringement of privacy. The historic center of Lucca is about 20’ drive away. The sea of Versilia (Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio...) is a little further away and can be reached in just over half an hour.
The property (900 sqm – 9,684 sqft) consists of two residential buildings (farmhouse and former barn) and various agricultural buildings. The two residential buildings currently house a total of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, a number that makes it very easy to use the property for accommodation purposes.
The farmhouse has been finely renovated by the current owners to preserve its salient features while adding more modern and refined touches. The stone and brick structure is still visible on the outside, while inside the walls are plastered and painted in warm colors that make the rooms very welcoming. In the main hall, the fireplace is framed by four paintings depicting four symbolic places of Lucca (including Porta San Gervasio in Lucca, Ponte della Maddalena in Borgo a Mozzano and Villa Mansi in Segromigno). Other rooms contain paintings and frescoes depicting rural scenes, hunting parties and views of the Tuscan countryside. The stylish furnishings, which blend well into the context, add an even more refined touch to the property.
The villa is surrounded by 4.0 hectares (9.9 acres) of land that include a beautiful garden all around the villa, decorated with colorful flowers, olive trees and lemon trees. The remaining area (approximately 3.0 hectares) is covered in woodland, which shelters the villa and gives it good privacy. To the side of the main house, beyond the renovated barn, is the 12 × 6 m swimming pool with a terracotta and grass solarium. A natural spring within the property allows the garden to be irrigated.
The property has two access gates that open along the boundary wall with a hedge, while a third access leads to a convenient parking area right next to the buildings.
