Spacious house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, in good condition, in a lovely hillside village above the town of Fivizzano. Extensive ‘cantina’ (garage/storerooms) on the lower level offer the possibility of significantly expanding the existing accommodation, subject to consents.
The ‘fondi’ on the ground floor comprise three large rooms, and this area leads out to a little garden, laid to lawn. Excellent potential for this area.
Stairs lead up and on the first floor there is a little terrace, a hallway, a large living room which opens onto a balcony with view over the rooftops, large kitchen/ dining room and two double bedrooms and a bathroom with bath. From the living room, a wooden staircase leads up to another bedroom and a built-in cupboard. The property is presented in good condition throughout and the seller tells us that the roof is in good order.
There is land of around one hectare (around 2.5 acres) close, but not attached to the house. It comprises olive trees and fruit trees and meadow.
Set in a small village in the hills with wonderful views, just 5 km from Fivizzano. Fivizzano is a medieval walled town with a central cobbled piazza and is often referred to as the Florence of Lunigiana. The bustling town hosts many cultural events over the summer with concerts in the piazza and reenactments of medieval parades. With strong musical heritage the town attracts international musicians during its annual folk music festival and music of all kinds. There is a hospital, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and coffee bars in the town and a great weekly market.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is just a short hop away. Lunigiana is special and has been likened to a magical kingdom. 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.
Distances: Fivizzano 4 km, Aulla (autostrada and trains) 20 kms, Lerici (beaches) 45 kms, Lucca 85 kms, Pisa (airport) 100 kms, Florence 150 kms.
