Exceptional setting with beautiful views and a lovely dining terrace off the kitchen. Character village house full of traditional charm with a contemporary edge. Lovely land of 12,300 sqm (around 3 acres).
This beautiful stone house (88 sqm) has been restored with flair to retain all the character and charm. Wonderful views in a sweet little Tuscan village. The setting is wonderful. The house has open views to the front, with beautiful french windows to make the most of the views and to flood the rooms with sunlight. The dining terrace which leads off the kitchen is delightful.
A short walk from the parking, under stone archway, the house is entered into a living room with lovely large window opening onto an open view. A beautiful fireplace offers a cosy spot. Up a spiral staircase is a lovely little kitchen which opens directly onto a beautiful dining terrace, perfect for dining ‘al fresco’. On this level is also a good double bedroom and very well fitted modern bathroom. Stairs up lead to an attic space which can be used as an occasional bedroom. The house retains a wealth of character and has been restored with careful attention to detail.
The land is extensive at around 12,300 sqm or 3 acres.
The house is on the edge of a small village in the Lunigiana hills, only 10 kms from Aulla where there is an autostrada exit, a train station, supermarkets and shops. There are numerous country farm restaurants to discover nearby, serving local specialties and excellent walking trails abound. The small town of Barbarasco is close by, set on the banks of the river Magra, and offers a selection of shops and restaurants, schools, chemist and one of the best cheese shops in the area.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. 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. There is breath-taking scenery and you simply feel a huge sense of well-being radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind and friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community among people that is rarely seen in modern day life.The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre (UNESCO World Heritage site) 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 within an easy drive.
Distances: Barbarasco 6 km, Aulla (train station, autostrada, supermarkets) 10 km, Lerici (beaches) 35 km, Cinque Terre 40 km, Lucca 80km, Pisa (airport) 90km.
