Historic Tuscan villa outside Lucca for sale
Historic villa in a privileged position on Lucca Hills
This historic villa, breathtaking views over the rolling Tuscan hills, plays an important role in Lucca’s heritage. There are still emains of a tower dating as far back as the 5t Century and a further tower built around the 10th-11th Century.
The property underwent extensive restoration around the 15th-16th Century when it became home of one of the most important Lucchese noble families. Using state-of-the-art environmentally friendly materials, the current owner has carefully refurbished the property and many original characteristics can still be found such as the terracotta floors, wooden beams, wrought iron forged by hand, numerous old fireplaces and original frescos.
One of the most outstanding architectural feature is the beautiful arched loggia with its columns, capitals and frescoes overlooking the gardens and the Lucca plain beyond.
The property also features several outbuildings such as a chapel, that still needs to be restored, and a large stable (283m²), planned to be converted into a 'Limonaia' conservatory and a completely independent and restored 2-bedroom annex (130m²).
This elegant Lucca villa is surrounded by olives and gardens, featuring an antique Renaissance fish pond now converted into one of two stunning swimming pools on the property.
The price include all antique furniture in the villa
