Pretty traditional stone cottage (67 sqm) with typical 2-up, 2-down layout + shower room. Large south-facing patio and garden area with pergola and stunning, far reaching views over surrounding area. Plenty of room for a swimming pool.
Walls are in a good state (and could easily have the plaster removed and be repointed) and the roof was recently reconditioned. Windows and doors are in good condition while the external wooden shutters need some attention. Central heating to radiators (except one upstairs bedroom).
Ground floor – dining kitchen with open fire, lounge (currently laid out as a third bedroom) leading to shower room.
First floor - 2 double bedrooms
2 cellars (one houses the washing machine and freezer)
The property can be reached by car or by taking a little lane with steps from the main piazza which has a a well stocked grocer, café/pizzeria and medieval church. The starting points for beautiful walks along ancient mule tracks and by-ways are close by.

The medieval hilltop town of Barga is 20km (30 mins) away, Bagni di Lucca is 35km (45 mins) while the beautiful walled city of Lucca is 55km (just over1 hour) away.
