Cozy stone village house with a Giuliette Balcony
La Barca is a small hamlet three kilometers from Gallicano. It stands on the southern bank of the Serchio river, where during the Middle ages a ferry has shuttled from there to the orher side of the river hence the name La Barca.
In the old part of the hamlet there are the ruins of the old city walls with two access gates: the north gate, perfectly intact, and the south gate, now disappeared, of which the ruins can be found. Adjacent to the north gate is the Oratorio della Barca dedicated to Saints Lucia and Rocco. The village preserves the ancient paved road that leads to Fiattone, which passes through the village "La Taverna", once a meeting point for bandits.
The property is located close to the big communal parking lot. The house has a beautiful stone finish and has been fully renovated. As you walk into the frontdoor, which is located on the ground floor, the first room could be a kitchen. All the access for water, electricity, plugs and gas can be found there. This gives you the freedom to bring your own dream kitchen to life.
On the next floor there is a space that could be a living area or bedroom. In this room there is a gorgeous fireplace and a Giuliette balcony. On this floor there is also a bathroom.
On the second floor there is a spacious bedroom and a newly done bathroom with a shower.
The property has newly done electrics, wcentral heating and double glazed windows. The ceiling has the traditional wooden beams exposed. The house is teaming with Tuscan character and allows you to make the property your own. The village is lived in full year round and has a new play park for all the young children in the village.
