Lovely property in the heart of Lajatico, with a project plan in place for full restoration, including a new roof terrace.
Two bedroom apartment (66 sqm plus cantina) in the ‘centro storico’, the historical centre, of Lajatico, with a project in place to modernise the accommodation and with the exciting prospect of a roof terrace.
There is a private entrance accessing the external staircase to arrive at a small terrace, where you enter into the front door. The apartment comprises two bedrooms with far reaching views, living room, kitchen and bathroom and a balcony. There is a large cantina (storeroom) on the ground floor which could become a utility room.
Whilst the apartment is currently habitable, there is a project in place, to be overseen by a local Geometra, to develop the property into a wonderful one or two bed apartment with a roof terrace. The project includes the option of having one or two bedrooms, opening a large panoramic picture window from the living room/ kitchen from where stairs will go up to the new roof terrace. It will include new flooring throughout, restoring the windows and doors, re-tiling the roof and adding a mezzanine floor with a great view. The project can be customised. The total cost of the project will be of the order of €60,000, which is an additional cost to the purchase price of the property.
The property is set in the very centre of Lajatico, in an area called ‘Il Castello’. Restaurants, coffee bars and shops are on the doorstep. There is parking around 100m from the apartment.
The lovely town of Lajatico, birthplace of the tenor Andrea Boccelli is set in breathtaking countryside. The natural contours of the land have been used to create the Teatro del Silenzio where the singer holds a concert in July every year together with other internationally famous singers. This large open-air theatre, il Teatro del Silenzio, was built especially to host this annual event. The quintessential Tuscan countryside around Lajatico offers superb views and beautifully restored properties.
