Superbly appointed five bed farmhouse (500 sqm) restored by the current owners with a flair for blending the rustic atmosphere of a Tuscan charm with contemporary fittings in light and bright accommodation. The property includes a large swimming pool and land of 6,000 sqm (1.5 acres). An extremely spacious house with large rooms and warm atmosphere, set at the edge of a hilltop village with far-reaching views over the countryside and hills. It is rare to be able to offer a house of this size and quality, having undergone a fabulous restoration to provide the ultimate mix of traditional charm with fully modern services. A true Tuscan gem.

Entered to an airy, bright double-height hall with doors opening onto the superbly fitted and well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, large dining room and two separate but connected living spaces with four sets of double doors which open onto the wide terrace with wonderful views and with steps down to the garden. This reception room, with full width balcony, is an exceptionally large and sociable space and easily accommodates families and friends. On the ground floor, away from the reception area is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, doors to a private patio and a study. A further, smaller double bedroom with en-suite shower room. In the large hallway is a cloakroom/WC and storage cupboard. From the hallway there is a sweeping wood staircase; upstairs there is a large landing/study area, with a further three beautiful double bedrooms each with doors to private balcony and a family bathroom with bath and separate shower. On the lower floor, with staircase down from the living room, is a large pool room/games room, a utility/laundry room, a bathroom with shower and a store room (currently a wine store); this level opens onto the pool terrace.

Wonderful swimming pool and pretty garden and land of approx 6,000 sqm (one and a half acres), nicely landscaped, which includes a fruit orchard and meadows. Access is on a good paved road, through a private gated drive with ample private parking.

The villa has undergone a high quality restoration and now has all new mains services including plumbing, electrics, broadband internet, underfloor heating and solar panels. The house is particularly spacious at 500 sqm. The finishes are beautiful and the quality is excellent throughout.

***Additionally, there is the possibility to include a beautiful, independent two bed guest unit next door. This would take the total price to €695,000 for both properties.***

Nearby, Licciana Nardi is a town in the Taverone valley with 13th century pedestrian street flanked with local shops. Central in the town is the Piazza del Municipio which hosts the 16th century Malaspina castle and many festivals such as the Chestnut Festival in the autumn. The castle is linked to the baroque church by a covered bridge so that the nobles had direct access to prayer and dealings with the local priest. There are also a bank, schools, restaurants and medical facilities. The nearby village of Monti has a castle on the hill above and offers a good selection of amenities.

Lunigiana is a magical part of Tuscany. The hills that encircle Lunigiana create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere whilst the blend of the mountains and sea are extremely inviting to those who enjoy the outdoors. The rolling landscape is liberally sprinkled with castles of Medici or Malaspina vintage and for lovers of the coast the sea is only half-an-hour away. The golden sandy beaches around Lerici and the pebble coves of the Cinque Terre (UNESCO World Heritage site) are ideal for swimming and sailing. The area is criss-crossed with marked footpaths for walks to the hills and mountains. The airports of Pisa, Parma and Genova are each just an hour or so away.

Distances: Licciana Nardi 3 km, Aulla (autostrada, supermarkets) 10 km, Lerici (beaches) 40 km, Cinque Terre 50 km, Pisa (airport) 95 km, Lucca 95 km, Florence 120 km.
