ID-Casolare del Monte
Complex of Villa Plus two Outbuildings to Restore with Land
380 mq of villa, oozing with character, one enteres on the first floor from a sunny terrace which is the 'piano signorile' into a large salon. Off this is the dining room, a study (this was originally a doctor's house and one can still see evidence of this within the property) at the back of the house is a large kitchen with fireplace, stone sink and old wood-burning cooker, with access to the garden, On this floor there is also a bedroom with marble fireplace, bedroom with ensuite bathroom and balcony.
Underneath are 4 basements which are accessed via internal stairs, 2 of which have independent external access and which both have adjoining loggias in original stone.
Upstairs, on the first floor there is a large salon with fireplace, 3 bedrooms, a library/study, a bathroom and 4 other rooms which could used for storage or further bedrooms and bathrooms as needed. There is mezzanine bathroom.
In front of the house is a spacious courtyard, there is tarmac road right the way up to the house. Behind the villa is a large garden of 2300 sqm of mainly flat or gently terraced land. This is currently overgrown.
There are also 2 outbuildings one of which is 2 floors, consisting of 4 rooms currently used for storage, and a woodstore. The other is also on 2 floors but is smaller probably 30 sqm.
The villa has retained its original period features which date back to the early 1700s, such as cotto floors, chestnut beams, decorative stone features, stone lintels. One could really have fun restoring these features.
The owners have repaired part of the roof but we suspect that more roof work needs to be done. The property is so beautiful that it is worth the effort.
There is a shop in the village and Bagni di Lucca is only 6km away.
The area offers a plethora of activities. You will never be bored here.
