Historical Noble Tuscan Home Near Lucca
Luxury villa with precious period details near Lucca and Florence
Prestigious and finely renovated ancient estate in the heart of Tuscany
Once owned by one of Lucca's most important families, the Gunigi, this historical noble estate is for sale at a stone's throw from Montecatini, 15 km from Lucca and 40 km from Florence.
Ideal as a starting point for visiting all the historical, artistic and naturalistic beauties that the Tuscany region has always offered, this property consists of a splendid main house and a farmhouse, immersed in a wonderful centuries-old park.
When crossing the entrance gate of this splendid luxury villa, a small paradise opens before our eyes, offering centuries-old trees, avenues, statues, fountains, lawns and flowers, and a perfectly equipped above ground swimming pool. An original defensive wall embraces the entire property, guaranteeing complete privacy.
The main villa is spread over four floors, covering an area of approximately 960 square meters. The style fully reflects the typical Tuscan taste; noteworthy is the ancient tower with a panoramic terrace.
The property's 9,600 sqm of grounds are also home to a two-storey farmhouse of about 400 square meters, which today houses two splendid and refined outbuildings: a conversion of the former stables and the old keeper's house. Inside there is a large room, formerly used for the storage of carriages, today used as a garage, as well as a consecrated church of 25 square meters, devoted to the Madonna of Lourdes.
During the renovation of the buildings, the original materials were skilfully recovered, including stone flooring and ancient terracotta floors. Particular attention was paid to the enhancement of historical details of enormous prestige, such as the splendid frescoes, the high ceilings with beams and bricks and an ancient structure where horses were tied.
This estate is a perfect testimony of the timeless taste and elegance present only in certain historical homes.
