Historic Dwelling - just 15 minutes drive from Lucca, Overlooking the Plain of Lucca with 3 hectares of Land
This is a beautifully restored property with Tuscan features Sienese Terracotta tiles and keeping all the original arches. Downstairs is a large open, living area with ancient fireplace. There is a separate, reasonably sized, eat-in kitchen with another fireplace. Under the stairs is a guest cloakroom.
The original Matraia stone steps lead one up to the first floor. The upstairs has a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a shower in it.. Two of the bedrooms are used for other purposes, one as a storage room and one as a large study. All the bedrooms enjoy the wonderful view from this property. The last bedroom on the corridor has French windows.
The house is heated very economically with a pellet burner, the owner has the pellets delivered and an entire years' heating costs just 1500 euros a year for a couple living in the house full time and using all parts of the house.
The house has private water and a pressure tank. There is also an accumulator for water in the boiler room which is a massive room and also used as a laundry. There is also public water. There is a fully functional septic tank that was part of the 2008 restoration.
The land is olives and woodland with 250 olive trees. The current owner has a great outdoor taverna with a pizza oven in the garden.
There is a fantastic neighbour who keeps an eye on the house when the owner is away. The other great thing about this house is that it is just 4 minutes from a 24 hour chemist and 2 minutes from the brand new shopping centre at Marlia.
