Beautifully restored villa with four bedrooms, set in a nicely landscaped garden with swimming pool and countryside views, set in the Lunigiana hills of Tuscany. Easy car access on good roads and private parking. The house is in immaculate condition throughout, having been totally remodelled in 2019, and it is ready to move into for a perfect holiday home, permanent home or for rental in Tuscany.
Entered into a light and airy entrance hall there is a large and well-equipped kitchen/dining room on the right and a lovely living room with fireplace on the left. Original features have been retained, giving warmth and character with exposed stone walls and beautiful original patterned tiles on the floors. Up a half flight of stairs are the very well appointment bathrooms and upstairs is a light and bright central hall with fireplace and balcony and the four large double bedrooms leading off from this central area. To the back of the house is a utility room, a ‘legnaia’ woodstore and the control room for the swimming pool.
The lawned garden features a swimming pool which is 8m x 4 m. The restoration involved a new roof, new wiring and plumbing and new windows throughout.
The villa 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, set on the banks of the river Magra, which 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.
