Nestling in woodland on the edge of the pretty mountain village of Poggio, large traditional paper mill, restructured to comprise six 2-bedrooms apartments (each 90 sqm) requiring completion + new building attached to paper mill + stone built water mill + original pigsty + large area of flat land bordering a trout-filled stream on the edge of the pretty mountain village of Poggio.
The paper mill has been restored to a builder's finish (ie all the building work such as external and internal walls and roof has been completed) and is subdivided into six, 2-bedroom apartments that would be ideal for summer rentals.
Attached to the paper mill is a newly built, 1 storey property, also finished to a “builder's finish” which could be used as living accommodation or a games room with changing facilities for the pool.<
Although the vendor had envisaged converting the paper mill into four 2-bedroom apartments, it would be just as suitable for a B&B or small hotel.
The water mill is in good structural condition with sturdy stone walls and traditional tiled roof. It is built over 3 levels with many original mill components still in place in the lowest (semi-interred) level. The two upper floors have independent entrances and are each about 56 sqm. Traditional open fire. It could be converted into a lovely detached family home.
The pigsty could easily be converted to an outside oven and/or BBQ for making bread, pizzas and “al fresco” dining.
Around the house there is a large area of flat land with covered parking area, lovely views and plenty of room for a swimming pool and tennis court.
The house is only a short walk from from Poggio train station (poggio-careggine-vagli), which is on the main line from Pisa airport, is about 10 minutes walk (700m)
The village of Poggio is about 10 minutes by car from the bustling market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, 1 hour from Lucca and 1.5 hours from Pisa airport. The sea and ski resort of Abetone are about 1 hour away, while the local ski slopes of Careggine are just 10 minutes drive
