This stunning farmhouse with swimming pool is ideally located in a south facing position on the Lucca hills, only 15 minutes drive from the city, at the same time immersed in beautiful and scenic country side. The vicinity to Lucca allow for seamless travel to the other main cities in Tuscany, from Florence, Siena, Pisa and of course the Versilia coast line.
The property develops over 350 square meters on two floors, is surrounded by 2 hectares of land which hosts a beautiful panoramic swimming pool with sun terrace. Internally the renovation was done to the highest standards, maintaining beautiful original features and material, coupled with modern fittings and installations, so much that unlike most other farmhouses, it achieves a E grade energy rating.
The property consists of entrance hall, a generous kitchen, living room, dining room, study, 6 bedrooms (4 doubles and 2 twins), 4 bathrooms.
It is provided with central heating, air conditioning, wireless internet, satellite TV, surround sound system.
The beautiful heated swimming pool measures 10 mt. by 5 mt., and is surrounded by 2 hectares of land with lawns, olive groves (86 trees), woodland, and fruits trees (fig, walnut, orange, lemon, cherry, hazelnut, apple and plum trees). The terracotta tiled pool area is strategically placed at a close, level walk from the house, near enough for convenience yet secluded enough to allow privacy and quiet. The pool receives the sun from early morning to late evening and commands open views across olive groves and cypress trees towards Lucca and Pisa beyond. With child safety in mind, the pool is enclosed by low local redbrick walls with access through a wrought-iron gate.
The pool surround is tiled with terracotta. There is a wisteria-covered pergola, which gives shade from the heat of the summer and where you can take poolside meals cooked on the pool barbecue. In both early and late summer months the pool heater maintains the pool temperature at your own setting.
There are several outdoor eating areas for “al fresco” dining in this magical setting. These include a covered terrace with access from the kitchen and dining room offering outdoor eating at its best, cool and protected yet fully exposed to the surrounding views of the valley and nearby hills, which make this area so special. This jasmine-scented terrace situated just off the kitchen, has a stone built barbecue, large stone dining table and refined teak loungers. It is framed by a fragrant rock garden featuring most of the typical Italian herbs. It falls away to superb views beyond, soaking up the sun from early morning to late evening. There are also several large paved areas and outside workshop.
There is covered parking for 3 cars and ample additional parking spaces for guests.
Pisa International Airport is a mere 40 minutes’ drive. Just a short drive away is the Versilian coast with its seaside towns of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio.
