A large, detached, country house with garden on a hill that dominates the valley with stunning views. Set at the edge of a medieval village with stone houses and vaulted passageways. There is a restaurant at the top of the village offering excellent local cuisine.
The property requires some restoration/modernisation work. Entered into a hallway with glass wall to terrace with views, to the left the main house is entered to a hallway, kitchen with fireplace, living room, bedroom and bathroom; upstairs there are four double bedrooms and a further bathroom. To the right of the main entrance hall there is a large room with fireplace that could be a guest unit with independent access. On the lower ground floor there is a garage and four wine cellars with stone arches that offer potential to renovate.
The house is connected to utilities and has central heating. The garden is planted with fruit trees and the views are outstanding. Marked footpaths from the village meander through the woods to a neighbouring small town with pizzeria, bar and restaurant.
Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with 13th century pedestrian street flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge so that the nobles had direct access to prayer and dealings with the local priest. There are also a bank, schools, restaurants and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The hills that encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hour away. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all just over an hour away.
