Detached house with land and views in private position within walking distance of picturesque town with shops, cafés and restaurant.
This property is perfectly situated in an elevated private position but within an easy stroll of the pretty medieval town of Licciana Nardi where you can shop for simple, fresh Tuscan produce, order a real italian coffee at the street cafés in the sunshine or eat home-made gnocchi al pesto at the local trattoria.
A private gated driveway leads to the property which is surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees. Benefitting from an elevated position the property commands stunning panoramic views of both the Apennine and Apuan Alps.
As it is south-facing it would enjoy the sun all day and is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset over the hills.
Internally the property is spacious and spread over two floors totalling 260 sqm.
Accommodation on the ground floor comprises: kitchen with door to outside area, dining-room, two double bedrooms, bathroom and garage.
The upper floor requires finishing offering huge potential for a buyer to design their own space as per their own requirements.
There is a balcony that can be reached by a number of rooms on the upper floor providing access to the magnificent views and would be perfect for morning coffee.
The property also comes with approximately 2100 sqm of land surrounding the house. There could be potential to install a swimming pool subject to planning permission.
Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with a 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.
