Just outside Lucca, a stone's throw from the city's historical center and close to all amenities, Art Nouveau villa with garden and garage. The building (540 sqm) is in excellent structural condition and is structured on three floors including elegant reception halls and a total of 6 bedrooms. The 560-sqm garden at the back of the building, fully fenced and private, ensures privacy and is the ideal place to spend pleasant summer days, perhaps in company of friends.
From the villa you can walk to both the services (150 m) and the center of Lucca via Porta Elisa (500 m). The historic cities of Tuscany (such as Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano and Florence) are reachable in less than an hour by car and the sea (Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi) is about 30 km from the property.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS, STATE AND FINISHES
The villa (541 sqm – 5,821 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms) is on three floors. In the basement, accessible from the back, are the cellars and technical rooms, a laundry room with bathroom, the summer kitchen and the garage (35 sqm – 377 sqft). The slightly raised ground floor is accessed via a loggia on the western side. The reception hall then leads to a hallway in the middle of the floor that gives access to all the other rooms. On one side is the sleeping area consisting of two bedrooms and bathroom in the hallway, on the other is the living area with kitchen, dining room, living room and office space (potentially a third bedroom). Going upstairs we find a hallway leading to a large living room with terrace and the sleeping area with four bedrooms and two bathrooms (the room at the southwest corner has a small private terrace, located above the entrance loggia).
The building is in good condition and still has all the typical elements of the early twentieth-century Art Nouveau style, including grit floors, geometrically patterned tiles, elaborate moldings and stucco, large windows (which conduce to very bright rooms), and doors with floral and/or geometrical grilles.
At the back of the property, at the corner of the garden, there is a storage room (11 sqm – 118 sqft) in which to shelter tools and utensils for green maintenance.
The property is accessed from the main road via an automatic gate, after which one finds oneself on a gravel driveway (278 sqm) that runs around the house and leads to the basement garage at the rear of the building. Beyond the house is then the garden (560 sqm) enclosed by a hedge and perfect for spending summer days. The kitchen in the basement, which is directly connected to the outside, is very useful in case one wants to organize al fresco dinners in the garden.
