Set on 20 acres of sunny hillside in the Tuscan mountains north of
Lucca and restored in 2001, the property of 300 sqm is ideally suited
for sustainable organic produce and/or animal farming. The light and
spacious house comprises: on the ground floor, entrance into a spacious
corridor that leads onto a living room with a double sided fire place

garden. From this room a smaller room can be reached which at present

room from which chestnut wood stairs lead up to the first floor. The
boiler room is also situated on the ground floor. On the first floor a
large landing with a balcony leads onto a bedroom with space to put in

panels and solar pannels installed and GPL attachments.
For sale with the property is a separate stone building which consists

kitchen/living room with a wood burning stove that heats the whole
building. Wooden stairs take us up to the first floor where there is a

fittings to put in water, electricity and heating.
A tiny covered building houses the washing machine and the door has
been created with the old door from the confession box taken from the
private chapel which is also situated on the land.

Syrah vines, and chestnut, hazelnut and walnut trees, wild porcini
mushrooms in season, and its own abundant pure mountain spring water
source, certified for drinking, as well as for irrigation.

pool, 1.50m deep and maintains the same depth all over as it doesn’t
have a deep end or a shallow end.
