ID-Casa La Calda
One enters from the middle floor behind the house due to the sloping nature of the land. Inside the double doors is the main sitting room with a fireplace and wood stove. The room is 16 mq.
The 16 mq, eat-in country kitchen oozes with charater. The current owners have placed a small bathroom off this so that the house has one bathroom with a tub in it. The others all have showers. When the current owners bought, there was a bedroom on the ground floor and a shower room under the stairs. These were constructed for the comfort of an elderly person. This room has remained a large bedroom, if desired, it would be possible to heat just the lower floor, making winter-life much more energy efficient. The windows on the ground floor are all sealed units.
The stairwell has been taken back to the stone which is very attractive showing the beauty of the natural stone. The upper floor has the 3 double bedrooms and study all facing south. This is the location of the main, very attractive bathroom with shower. The current owners are able to work from the upper rooms as the internet is very good.
Underneath the house are 4 cantina's, one of which is used as a bathroom, this would make a great changing room should you put a pool in.
The house has two portions of flat land either side so that the owners can cultivate vegetables to the north of the house and enjoy the lawn with its pergola of kiwi's to the south.
There a two storey barn in the garden which has been converted into a stunning space for reading, painting and other hobbies. This room has four windows giving it amazing natural light. Underneath was going to be converted into chapel but, having both water and electricity, it could be converted into a guest suite or a suite for AirBnB.
The house is located just 4 km from Bagni di Lucca with tarmac all the way to the land surrounding the house. This means that it is just 4 km from the train station and 800 m from the bus stop.
The spa town of Bagni di Lucca has just opened the Bernabo baths which are the original marble baths where the waters can be enjoyed in full-immersion pools.
There are loads of walking paths, and countryside activities to be enjoyed without needing the car.
