TOP FLOOR APARTMENT IN THE COMPITESE TO BE RESTORED
This apartment is the third/top floor of Palazzo Giovannetti offering a naturally bright apartment with windows on all sides. The Palazzo is found deep in the Tuscan countryside at the foot of Mount Serra, surrounded by olive groves and evergreens. Palazzo Giovannetti dates back to the first half of the 19th century and can be reached by crossing the bridge over the Visona River that leads to the electric gate and then the driveway.
The ‘Palazzo’ is divided into two apartments, one per floor, and has two common areas: the entrance hall and the inner staircase. The third floor apartment consists of a large living-room (with two windows and a fireplace), a kitchen (with two windows), a bathroom (with one window and featuring a bathtub) and an anti-bathroom; a dining-room (with one window and a fireplace), a study (with one window and a chimney offering the possibility of a fireplace), plus two bedrooms with three windows in each; there is also a third external bedroom (with two windows), that can be reached via a staircase. All three bedrooms have fitted, wooden wardrobes in them.
The architecture is typical of the Lucca area and of the time: made of brick and stone, with exposed-beam roofs (4 metres high throughout, as shown in the attached layout), it has terracotta flooring and wood fixtures. The apartment covers an entire floor of about 250 square metres in size.
The access is very easy from all the main routes in the Lucca area and the apartment is 12 kmsfrom Lucca, 75 km from Florence, 28 km from Pisa and 46 km from Viareggio and Versilia. Within the village, within walking distance are two restaurants and a pizzeria. In the next village is a lovely restaurant known for its beautiful garden.
The pictures shown of the apartment are from when it furnished, all the furniture has now been removed, but the beautiful floors and ceilings still remain.
The roof has always been maintained but, as it is so large, it may well be able to have a roof terrace while the roof is being replaced (whenever that is)
