Detached villa set on a sunny hillside in the Lunigiana hills with a pretty garden and outstanding views to the mountains.
With good car access and a garage, the village is approached on a little lane. The house is on two floors. On the upper level are kitchen, living room, two double bedrooms and a bathroom whilst on the lower level there is a kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom as well as the garage and cantina (store room). The rooms are of good size, are light and airy with high ceilings and well tiled floors. There are glazed double doors which give an easy connection to outside where there is a lovely patio area to linger. The garden is of approx 800m with ample space for a swimming pool (subject to planning).
In fair condition with central heating installed this much loved family property would now benefit from some modernisation.
Within 5 kms is the elegant town of Equi Terme, famous for centuries for the natural warm spring waters, now a spa and wellness retreat. The town of Fosdinovo is a walled town dominated by a Malaspina Castle dating back to the fourteenth century. The town is famous for its embroidery on precious linen and Pope Francis’s robe was embroidered by the ladies of Fosdinovo. The town overlooks the beaches of the Versilia coast and is reached by a scenic road that meanders through the olive groves above the town of Sarzana. There are views to the sea.
Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany.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-hour away. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre are ideal for swimming and sailing 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 just over an hour.
