In a stunning location with majestic views in every direction this beautiful stone farmhouse is very special. Set among the green hills of Lunigiana, with olive groves, fields of lavender and scattered oak trees, the views towards the Apuan mountains and across the valley are truly breathtaking. The farmhouse is totally private, but easily accessible on a short private paved road and it is not at all remote. There is total peace and tranquility in the countryside yet the little village of Agnino is within walking distance, the main town of Aulla, with supermarkets and access to the autostrada, is only a ten minute drive and Pisa airport is just over an hour away.
The property comprises a spacious and well-equipped stone farmhouse, a separate, detached guest suite and taverna, a swimming pool with a useful outbuilding housing a little kitchen and shower room and nearly four acres of land. The finish oozes quality. The paved patio entrance area with hand-crafted railings, perfectly positioned stone flower tubs, the carved supports for the wooden pergolas and the tuscan brick arches all demonstrate immaculate attention to detail. The farmhouse is entered into a large and airy living room with chestnut beamed ceiling, opening to the well-equipped kitchen with corner larder. There is a separate study and a good storeroom also on the ground floor as well as a handcrafted modern bathroom. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room, another double bedroom with en-suite shower and another twin/double bedroom.
