On the edge of the mountain village of Roggio, great opportunity to buy and restore half of the old village schoolhouse. The other half has already been transformed into a beautiful, semi-detached villa by the owners.
The property can easily be reached by car and has an internal floor area of about 90 sqm. It is currently divided into 3 rooms with an external boiler room that could be knocked through. It is in good structural condition (including the roof) but otherwise needs complete restoration.
The outside area is level and could form a lovely lawned garden on three sides of the villa.
Roggio is a very pretty village of around 200 inhabitants. Historically, there was a significant amount of emigration, particularly to the US, Australia and UK and in the summer months, numbers swell as descendants of these pioneers visit their homeland!
There is a hotel and a couple of good restaurants/cafés in the village itself while just over 5 minutes drive away is Camporgiano with its good shops and services including station on the main line from Pisa/Lucca to Aulla and a small Monday morning market.
The beautiful Lake Vagli with its famous submerged village is just south of Roggio. Other distances...
