This property is found within the Controneria area above Bagni di Lucca, which is known for being 4 degrees warmer in the Winter than the main town. The complex is access from a parking lot along a short path.
The property is full of character and has a stone showing that the property was built in 1726. It was completely restored in 2005.
One enters into the main house into a large hallway with terracotta floor and beams. The country-style kitchen has Neopolitan tiles, a working fireplace and has space to eat in. The most beautiful room in the house is definately the stone walled dining room with its French doors opening out to the garden.
Interestingly, there is a second large living area which has its own independent entrance, this could a reception area for entertaining as it is very large, compared with the private house and has a completely restored. ancient fireplace. There is a lot of storage in this area as well as a room, entered by swing doors, that currently acts as a laundry but could be a preparation room for food as it has plumbing for white water. There is also a connection from this room into main house entering on the first floor where the landing is. The reason is that this room is higher up and can be accessed without negotiating the stairs. This access is seen on the photo of the landing as it is the blue door.
This landing is a way of connecting the two parts of the house Up the original stairs, there is a central living room, a luxury bathroom, a dressing room and the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a feature fireplace which can be reopened as the chimney above has been completed restored for use.
The second floor has three bedrooms, an office, which was originally a bedroom and a large feature bathroom. The owners have quite a sense of humour and restored the original gabinetto (outside privvy) as a feature on the balcony on this floor.
Above this, is a full attic with an insulated roof.
The barn is larg, in original stone, with a new roof and new structural framework. It has both wiring and lighting installed.
This complex is full of little surprises, one of which is the herb garden behind the barn, another is the bread oven attached to the barn.
The guest apartment is very interesting and has a private garden/sitting area with a tettoia. The apartment is open plan downstairs and up with a spiral staircase connecting the floors and a little balcony feature. It has a full working kitchen/dining area.
