Detached Villa with ample garden and spectacular view of medieval castle, hills and valley.
Situated at the edge of a character village known for its medieval Malaspina castle, the property is approached via its own gated driveway which provides parking for at least 2 cars. Entrance is via the front garden which has steps up to the front terrace leading to the front entrance. There is also a side door entrance.
Inside, there is a bright living-room, large kitchen with ample space for a table and downstairs bathroom. Upstairs, there is a bathroom with bath and shower and two light double bedrooms both with french windows to their own balcony with panoramic views of the valley and medieval castle.
To the rear there is approx. 400 sqm of flat land with room to install a swimming pool subject to planning permission.
The rear garden is accessible from both the upstairs and downstairs levels.
The property is located just 3.5 km from the picturesque town of Licciana Nardi and its amenities.
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 (pronounced Loonee-janna) is a magical part of Tuscany starting with its name the ‘Land of the Moon’. 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 but for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hours’ drive away.
Lunigiana is special and has been likened to a magical kingdom. It is not only the breath-taking scenery with its abundance of medieval castles but you simply feel a huge sense of wellbeing radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community amongst people here that is rarely seen in modern day life.
The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing in the summer while the snow clad mountains offer skiing in the local resorts during the winter months and are each a short drive away. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all within an hours’ drive.
