The villa also has a downstairs cellar/garage with potential to offer further accommodation and a barn which could also be converted subject to planning permission.\nThe property is approached via a privated gated driveway which currently leads to the spacious garage/cellar under the property. There is a small gate which leads up a few stairs to the front door. Inside, accommodation is all one one-level, with a spacious entrance hall or living-room, open-plan kitchen/dining room, bathroom with shower and two bright double bedrooms. There are also french windows which lead from the kitchen on to a covered terrace - perfect for morning coffee or a relaxing glass of wine - with breathtaking expansive views over the countryside to the peaks of the Apuan Alps. The property also benefits from gas central heating and a utility room off the terrace.
The property is set in approx. 1800 sqm of land offering potential for a swimming pool subject to planning permission.
The barn is on two levels (70 sqm in total) and also benefits from the stunning views of the Apuan Alps, which could be perfect as a holiday cottage for rental or as an overflow for guests (subject to planning permission).
The villa is located approx. 5km from the town of Aulla, in a small hamlet which traditional hosts the hog roast festival in May. A relaxing evening eating fresh roast pork with salty chips and juicy sun-ripened tomatoes accompanied by a glass of the local red whilst watching the sun descend over the fields is one of the great pleasures of Lunigiana life. It is then a gentle stroll home along the lane to this villa.
Aulla is one the largest towns in Lunigiana; it has a good selection of shops, supermarkets, medical centre, public transport, motorway (A15) access and train station. The historic town centre is the site of a marble fountain built in the year of Italian unity and the 16th century fortress called La Brunella is perched on a hill overlooking the town. The fortress now houses the Museum of Natural History of Lunigiana. Enjoy the colourful market hosted in the town centre every Saturday morning.
Lunigiana (pronounced Loonee-janna) is a magical part of Tuscany starting with its name the ‘Land of the Moon’. The hills that encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage but for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hours’ drive away.
Lunigiana is special and has been likened to a magical kingdom. It is not only the breath-taking scenery with its abundance of medieval castles but you simply feel a huge sense of wellbeing radiating from the sunshine, glorious countryside, delicious food and wine, kind friendly locals and most importantly, from the sense of tradition and community amongst people here that is rarely seen in modern day life.
The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing in the summer while the snow clad mountains offer skiing in the local resorts during the winter months and are each a short drive away. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are all within an hours’ drive.
