This superb Tuscan villa for sale enjoys far-reaching views of the Tuscan countryside and over the 111 hectare estate from its hilltop location halfway between Lucca and the Mediterranean coast. Carefully restored and maintained to a very high standard, the historic villa, which dates back to the 16th century, is a fantastic country home but offers also great development potential.
The Tuscan Villa
The Tuscan villa offers 1200m² of built area over three floors and a smaller lower ground floor. The interior design of the villa skilfully mixes contemporary open plan living and modern facilities with historic period features and classic Tuscan style.
As soon as you enter the villa, the elegance of the property is apparent; high ceilings, grand fire places, pietra serena door surrounds and large windows creates an atmosphere of magnificence and nobility. The entrance hall leads to an intimate dining room, a drawing room, study and to the impressive en-suite master bedroom.
On the lower floor is a fully equipped kitchen, a large sitting room with fireplace, a powder room and pantry. However, the main feature of this floor is the large room which is ideal for grand entertaining and for hosting dinners with up to 34 seated guests.
There is also a smaller lower ground floor level with games and billiards room which benefits from large doors opening out to the lower terrace of the garden.
The top floor of the Tuscan villa offers three spacious bedroom suites, a guest or staff bed room with bathroom and a charming library.
And if you need more space, there are other structures within the grounds which could be restored to create additional accommodation or indeed developed to create rental properties to generate income. The floor area of these structures totals 1200m².
