Important Historic Villa with Original Frescos and 2 Hectares of Parkland
This is a villa with some stories to tell.
Underneath the villa, there is a separate apartment for staff if needed which was restored in 1983. Although the ceilings are quite low. This apartment is separate in many ways including the electrics although, at the moment, everything works from the same meter. Currently, this is a 2-bedroomed apartment with two bathrooms, there is also a kitchen, sitting room and entrance which is large enough to contain the library.
The main ground floor consists of large rooms with high ceilings and some French doors on the Southern side of the villa which open out on the sun terrace which really is a sun trap. This would make a fantastic breakfast terrace if this were to become a bed and breakfast. The kitchen is reasonably new and placed at the back of the villa, along with the downstairs bathroom which was installed in 1980.
In the front of the villa, there are 2 salons, one of which has the French windows out to the terrace. There is also a bedroom on this floor.
The marble staircase is very '30's and has the feel of 'Sunset Boulevard', the other floors are original Tessieri characteristic of Lucca.
Upstairs, on the first floor, there are 3 more bedrooms and a studio as well as another bathroom. The studio could easily be used as a bedroom.
The upper floor has a registered bedroom and three large attic rooms as well as a smaller room which could be the bathroom on this floor. The tower is accessed from a large spiral staircase.
Inside the tower, there is a stunning room with stained glass windows. Probably, the coolest feature is the terrace above the tower which gives a 360 degree view of the Lucchesia.
To say this property is 'inspirational' is an understatement.
The property is heated with pellets which can be alternated with gpl however, it must be noted that the boiler is out of order at the moment.
There is no pool at the moment but there is a lovely spot to the west of the villa where there are currently olives.
