The property is situated in an area of exceptional natural beauty, in the proximity of the medieval fortress Verrucole and of the nature reserve of Orecchiella. It is also quite close to the train station in Piazza al Serchio.
The house originates from an old building, with architectonic details of the early ‘800s and much of it has been renovated to a high standard.
On the ground floor; in front of the property, there is a paved area that can be used for car parking. Beneath this area there is an archway that leads directly to the basement.
The ground floor consists of the day area of the house. The main entrance door leads to a cosy living room with a large stone fireplace and to the Tuscan-style kitchen, which is fitted with modern appliances. There is a large reception/dining room, with a second, original entrance door. Here there are chestnut beams and recently-laid terracotta paving.
The spacious room is connected to a studio with a small library encased in the wall, and to an ex-kitchen, which could be converted into a small washroom, but is currently used as a storage room.
The original stone stairs lead from the dining room to the first floor. This level consists of a large hallway, three bedrooms, a studio/TV room which is being used as a bedroom and two bathrooms, one with double sink and shower and one which has been recently fitted with an elegant bathtub.. This floor has parquet flooring, wood beams and beautiful views from all the windows.
The second floor, consisting of the attic, is still rough but it could be converted into a self-contained living area of the house.
The basement is accessible via an internal staircase but also from the archway and from the garden. It has six rooms, a bread oven, boiler, utility area, plenty of storage space and accesses to the pergola.
The garden is delimited by a stone wall, accessible via gates, and for this reason it has its own privacy even though it is an outside space. It is slightly downhill, spacious and populated with a variety of fruit trees (cherry, apple, pear, quince and fig). Here you can enjoy the shady space under the old grape vine and contemplate the splendid panoramic views.
