This is a stunning property with history and a Stunning View to the Plain of Lucca.

Underneath the house there are 3 massive cellars which have 4 metre-high ceilings.  These have incredibly high wooden doors dating back to the last century.  These cantinas are used as workshops and one can see that the floors above have been stregthened with RSJ's.  One can also see the tiny windows on this bottom floor to aid the defence of the building.

The current owners live on the first floor which is the ground floor entering from the back.  There is a hallway leading in to an eat-in kitchen with a 16th century fireplace.  There is a formal dining room on this floor.  Finished off with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

Upstairs has been completely left apart from a new roof that was put in 8 years ago.

The house has complete car access and sits in 4 hectares of land, 1500 mq of which is flat.

Behind the house, there are the tanks into which the private water flows.  This provides a relaxing sound behind the house and seems to also create an oasis for exotic plants to grow.
