Lucca (Lucca) - In the suggestive scenery of the Lucca countryside, this splendid luxury villa is for sale. The property, a historic villa dating back to the seventeenth century, boasts a large size. In fact, there are 710 square meters on which the three levels that make up the property are distributed which, in 2005, underwent a careful conservative restoration work that has brought this magnificent dwelling back to its ancient splendor.
On the ground floor, in addition to the private chapel, we find the living area which consists of a large kitchen, a dining area and a large living area with triple living room with bright views of the garden.
A stone staircase, original of the time, leads to the first floor where there is an additional living area with kitchen and living room and the sleeping area with two bedrooms and a bathroom. Finally, the attic level consists of a further kitchen with pantry, a living room, a hall and three bedrooms with two bathrooms.
The well-kept garden hosts covered parking spaces as well as a wonderful swimming pool surrounded by statues and flower beds to make this important luxury villa romantic and timeless.
Famous for its historical monuments, it is one of the few capitals to preserve the historic center, rich in ancient structures from various eras, completely surrounded by a sixteenth-century wall that is overall intact and almost unchanged over the centuries. It is a notable city of art in Italy. The monumental historic center of the city has remained almost intact in its original appearance, thus being able to include various valuable architectures, such as the numerous medieval churches of considerable architectural wealth (Lucca has even been nicknamed the "city of 100 churches", due to the presence of numerous churches in its historic core, consecrated and not, present in the past and now in the city), towers and bell towers, and monumental Renaissance palaces of valuable stylistic linearity. The city also boasts suggestive urban spaces: the most famous is certainly that of Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, born on the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheater by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini and unique of its architectural kind. The main artery of the historic city is the narrow and medieval via Fillungo, which brings together the major businesses of the city. Other suggestive squares are Piazza San Michele, the historic center of the city and Piazza San Martino, the religious center where the famous Cathedral of San Martino stands. Piazza Napoleone (also called Piazza Grande by the Lucchesi), was commissioned by Elisa Baciocchi during her Principality, demolishing ancient medieval buildings including a church. Adjacent is Piazza del Giglio where the homonymous theater overlooks, (Teatro del Giglio), which is to be counted as a traditional theater. Precisely because of this immense historical-monumental wealth, the proposal has recently been made to include the Walls of Lucca in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Among the main art cities of Tuscany, the provincial capital, the city of Lucca offers the most varied services (from catering, to transport, to events), ranking among the cities livable at all times of the year.
