Exclusive and characteristic charming property, for sale in the Tuscan hills of Lunigiana, just 3 km from the center of Pontremoli, once used as the main mill in the area.
Currently the property, for sale in Tuscany, is formed by a group of buildings for a total of about 1300 square meters, as a small "village", which also includes the peasant house and the old school of the village, as well as two grain mills and two chestnut mills in a stone building adjacent to the main building, which could be converted into a separate and independent residence.
The property consists of three buildings: the main villa, the farmhouse, and a studio in the old school of the village.
The villa was renovated during the 90s with great care and sensitivity preserving as many original details as possible. The buildings are in exposed stone with Roman tiled roofs: the first parts were built in the fourteenth century and subsequent extensions were completed in the early nineteenth century. The internal structure is vaulted and many rooms of the villa have painted decorative ceilings of the nineteenth century. The old terracotta floors have been maintained in most rooms.
The main villa on the ground floor is composed as follows: entrance hall, living room with frescoed ceiling, reception room, study, kitchen/ dining room with a beautiful historic fireplace, blue living room with original decorated walls and painted ceiling, storage room, guest toilet and built-in wardrobe. The living room overlooks a large terrace and a door from the kitchen leads to the pond with a bridge leading to an outdoor dining area with pergola.
The first floor houses the sleeping area with five double bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a central lounge with a decorated and frescoed ceiling. One of the bedrooms is a suite with adjacent reception room and private bathroom. The suite also has a private terrace.
In the living room of the first floor there is a chapel, on a mezzanine floor, with direct access to the garden.
In the basement are located the cellar, stables and two mills, as well as service rooms.
The adjoining house Colonica consists on the lower floor of a large living room that opens onto the large terrace shared with the villa, two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and two bathrooms.
Upstairs we find the kitchen with dining room equipped with an outdoor covered loggia and an additional double bedroom.
In the old school of the village there is a studio on one level with bedroom/ living room, kitchen/ dining room and bathroom with shower. The apartment opens onto the triangular garden with cypress trees.
The prestigious property, for sale in Lunigiana, is completed by some rooms at the lowest level of the buildings such as an oil mill, barns, stables and cellars. The barns could be renovated to provide more housing.
The villa and the attached buildings are surrounded by a flat land of about 2 hectares, where there is also the 10.5 meters long pool, 4.5 meters wide and 1.5 meters deep, equipped with a water salt purification system.
The property is perfectly suited both as a private residence and as a charming accommodation in the Tuscan hills of Lunigiana. Show more Show less
