Full description:

The tower in which this apartment is found, dates back to 1170 and has walls that are 2 m thick in places. When the city of Lucca's walls were expanded in 1514 to enlarge the city, all that was left of the original walls were the two towers. One at the top of Via Fillungo and one at the Top of Via Santa Croce. Houses and apartments were built on the foundations of the old walls and a couple of apartments were established inside the the towers. The original builders actually had to dig through the 2 m of wall to make a window. You can see this from the floorplans.

This particular apartment occupies the fourth and fifth floors of the tower and was restored in 1997. It has certified heating which runs on methane and certified electrics. There are eight owners in total for the communal parts of the building but only six owners use the communal parts. One of the parts is owned by the comune of Lucca itself. There is full management and the yearly fee is 400 euros.

The tower had a new roof in 2004 and the facade of the building was also renewed. These are the two largest expenses and have been attended to recently.

The apartment is accessed via 72 very shallow stairs. One enters into a large room with hardwood floors and exposed beams. All the other rooms also have beams but they are not yet exposed. All the skylights in the apartment date back to the original conversion of the 1500′s. The built-in kitchen will be staying in the apartment and is included in the price. There are two other rooms on this floor that could be bedrooms as well as a bathroom.

The stairs out of the kitchen are original and lead into an upper, arched room. Here there is also a bathroom and a laundry. There is accessed to the very top of the tower through a trap door.

This is truly an iconic building to buy part of.
