Property description

YOUR 'PIED A TERRE' IN COREGLIA

This house is set right in the centre of the village, walking distance to everything that Coreglia can offer in the way of shops and services.

It is on three floors with cellars on basement floor, on this floor there is also a little garden well exposed to the sun. The cantina is high enough to be made into a taverna for 'al fresco' dining.

The main access to the house is by a staircase that leads you to the first floor where you will find a living room, a dining room with open kitchen and a lovely terrace with great views over the valley and the village. This house was built by Italians for Italians and so all the action is in the eat-in kitchen. The views extend as far as the Alpi Apuane.

On top floor, reached by marble stairs, there are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom and a bathroom.

This house is in need of some light, restoration, the roof should be fine but hasn't been inspected by a builder. Under the false ceilings are beams if the new buyers wanted to make the house more rustic.
This house is set right in the centre of the village, walking distance to everything that Coreglia can offer in the way of shops and services.

It is on three floors with large cellars on basement floor, on this floor there is also a little garden well exposed to the sun. The cantina is high enough to be made into a taverna for 'al fresco' dining.

The main access to the house is by a staircase to a small service terrace that leads you to the first floor where you will find a living room, a dining room with open kitchen which has a very large window to enjoy the view. Off this is fantastic, large terrace, where you will enjoy winter sunshine as well as barmy breakfasts in the Summer before the heat arrives for the day. This house was built by Italians for Italians and so all the action is in the eat-in kitchen or on the terrace. The living room is snug for watching TV in the evenings or listening to music. The views extend as far as the Alpi Apuane, over which some amazing sunsets can be viewed all year.

On top floor, reached by marble stairs, there are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom and a bathroom.

This house is in need of some light, restoration, the roof should be fine but hasn't been inspected by a builder. Under the false ceilings are beams if the new buyers wanted to make the house more rustic.

Coreglia is set between the Apennine peaks of Giovo and Rondinaio, it overlooks the Serchio valley from a cliff that turns pink at sunset, standing there for a thousand and more years, in the shadow of a tower reach toward the clouds.
Its position between woods and vineyards, the Romanesque ruins, the partly still visible fortifications built by Castruccio, the Ghibelline condottiere just north towards Piastroso. The powerful backdrop of the Apuans, makes it a renowned summer resort area.
There are two churches:-
The Church of S. Martino is pre-Romanesque, and is one of the oldest churches in the Lucca area. Built in the 9th century, it was enlarged in the 10th with the interior arcades, supports, capitals and the apse visible today. Further remodeling was done in the following century, while the asymmetrical façade is due to the changes made in the 16th and 17th centuries. The bell tower is from 1854.
The Church of San Michele is a true treasure chest of art, built in the 11th century next to the fortress and its tower, which was transformed into a bell tower. Inside, the pre-Romanesque ambo portraying a cow is probably the oldest pulpit support base among all the churches in the Val di Serchio. There is also a beautiful 15th-century wooden crucifix, obviously influenced by German art, and an outstanding pair of marble statues of the Blessed Virgin and the Angel of the Annunciation. The drapery of this work, sculpted in the 14th century, recalls that of the dancer by Giovanni Pisano, and could belong to the manner of Giovanni di Balduccio.
As regards civic buildings, the 16th-century urban fabric (although modified in many instances) of Coreglia includes a number of handsome edifices, such as the Town Hall, built in 1572, Palazzo Antonimi and Palazzo Vincenti. Benedetto Puccinelli, one of the greatest Italian botanists of the early 1800s, was born in Palazzo Vincenti. Dominating the upper part of the village is Palazzo Vanni, which houses the Museum of Plaster Figurines and Emigration.
The enchanting view of the Apuan Alps, silhouetted in the western sky, and fortified by that of the Apennine hills descending toward the Serchio, is a balm that soothes the pains of the world.
Not far away is the fortified village of Ghivizzano, included among the lands of Coreglia in the Early Middle Ages. It is well preserved and still retains its atmosphere of centuries past.
