Overview - the area of Corsena is considered one of the most Desirable of the Bagni di Lucca as it is raised from the River and so benefits from a dryer atmosphere.
The property is accessed via electric gates and up a private driveway to a parking plaza with access to both covered parking and a double garage.
There are then steps up to the front door which has a stunning wraparound terrace. This opens out into a massive sitting room and dining room with a fireplace and French doors. The sitting room alone is 30 mq. The kitchen on this floor is quite compact but the family have made an entire living area in the cantina level with a large, eat-in kitchen as well as a casual dining area.
The entire villa is set in an American split level style from the 1970's and has the luxury of 'wasted' space using wide staircases, and large landings.
The first floor consists of 3 bedrooms and a large bathroom. One of the bedrooms opens out onto a balcony.
Up the stairs again is the attic level that is currently used to hang out the washing but could make another apartment. There are also two bedrooms on this level although these are both attic rooms with sloping ceilings.
The roof is a lightweight concrete roof with solar panels on top for hot water.
Underneath the house there actually 2 semi-basements due to the topograpy of the garden. The first one is the double garage which the owners says has been known to park three cars in. Below this is the taverna, where the family live during much of the day.
The taverna is 60 mq of open plan room with French Doors out to the garden, this has a large dining room table and kitchen as well as sitting corner.
