Character 2 bed semi-detached house in great location
Set in the sunny hills above Fosdinovo, with a wide-reaching view towards the sea, this sweet character property is ready for modernisation to convert to a wonderful home.
The property is semi-detached and forms the portion of the building with the most wonderful views.
On the ground floor is a kitchen with fireplace, living room and bathroom with shower;
on the first floor there are two bedrooms (one to finish);
on the second floor there is a covered terrace and a ‘cantina’ (storeroom).
Set between Fosdinovo and Sarzana in the hills, only 12 kms from the sea. The little village is picture perfect and the house is on the charming village lane. The land, which is included in the sale, is a well tended olive grove.
Sarzana, just 10 minutes drive, is a vibrant medieval market town with large elegant central piazza and cobbled lanes meandering through the town flanked with coffee shops and antique stores. During the summer months Sarzana often hosts festivals from dining in the piazza to concerts to open air events with stages set along the lanes.
Both the coastal areas of Versilia and the Gulf of the Poets are close by. Sarzana has a station with direct trains to Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre.
The Gulf of the Poets is a beautiful bay guarded by a group of three islands: Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto. There are exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in the craggy bays around Fiascherino or Tellaro. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which runs between Lerici, La Spezia and Portovenere and on to The Cinque Terre. The name Gulf of the Poets is from the literary connection as some of the world’s most famous poets including Shelley, Byron and DH Lawrence lived here at some time.
Lerici and San Terenzo offer golden sandy beaches with views to the islands and pretty piazzas with cobbled lanes which host some of the best restaurants in the area. Lerici itself is dominated by the castle with the old village of coloured houses huddled on the steep hill dropping down to the sea and the marina. The little lanes of Lerici have many colourful shops and restaurants so it is the perfect place of the evening stroll, the ‘passeggiata’. The area is beautiful.
Sarzana 10 kms, Lerici (beaches) 17 kms, Lucca 70 kms, Florence 140 kms, Pisa (airport) 75 kms.
