A truly unique early-19th Century villa tastefully renovated by the current owners, located in one of the several sought-after villages south of Lucca. Must see property.
This is the result of a 2-year renovation project finished by a well-known design firm in Lucca: a classic village house covering a total surface of approx. 320 sqm. over three floors.
The owners wanted to preserve the character of the chestnut beams and stone construction villa as much as possible, with outstanding results.
On the ground floor the large but cosy living/dining area contains a stone and chestnut fireplace and alcove. The eat-in kitchen has stainless steel appliances, custom chestnut cabinetry, marble counters and sink. There is a powder room off the kitchen, and a full walk-in pantry/wine cellar.
On 1st and 2nd/top floors are three large bedroom suites with full baths, walk-in closets and/or dressing areas, a further single bedroom, tiled enclosed showers, custom chestnut cabinetry, marble counters and glass bowl sinks.
An immense library/media room, with a cathedral open chestnut-beamed ceiling and a skylight, complete the top floor.
The villa flooring is antique-style terracotta laid in the traditional herring bone pattern.
All windows,. interior shutters, doors, and cabinets are custom built using chestnut wood. All windows have double thermal-paned glazing.
There are two terracotta brick terraces outside, one an entry, and the other fully lit with a wisteria covered pergola, great for al fresco dining or barbeques. Both patios adjoin the gated and stone walled rose garden at the entry of the villa.
Next to the paved parking space is a new garden/utility annex with laundry area and another half bath.
Services: mains methane gas for hot water and under-floor heating system with 5 individual heating zones controlled with thermostat. Broadband internet connection on site.
