Beautifully restored Tuscan villa with five bedrooms, one hectare of land and approved permission for a swimming pool. A couple of minutes from Lucignano but incredibly private.
A Leopoldina villa which has been stylishly built with the benefits of modern construction techniques, using traditional/reclaimed materials. The villa has been meticulously maintained by the current owners. The house (350 sqm) is organised on three floors, with five en suite bedrooms and plenty of outside space, and it is enriched by the already obtained permission to build a pool. Combining contemporary facilities with traditional style, this family villa in Tuscany has the easy ambience of a home in the country. Incredibly peaceful and private but literally minutes away from the pretty Tuscan town of Lucignano.
On the ground floor the lounge area, with open fireplace and vaulted ceilings, leads to a beautiful hallway with a large glass door which opens onto the flat portion of garden which sits to the front of the property. The modern kitchen and adjacent dining room are also on this floor along with a ground floor bedroom with bathroom en suite, a guest bathroom and a laundry/storage room.
The beautiful open stairway leads to the first floor where a gallery provides access to the four corner bedrooms, all with bathroom en suite, all of the bathrooms have baths, two have an additional shower. the rooms here all have traditional exposed wooden beams. The stairs continue to the upper floor, in the tower, where a cozy library / study is located, beautifully enriched with exposed wooden beams too.
The villa, as well as being incredibly stylish is also effortlessly fluid and though very spacious it has a warm and intimate atmosphere. A well-maintained stretch of white road provides access to the villa via a gated entrance and there is a lovely, flat area of elevated land to the left of the drive where the swimming pool is to be positioned. An ample parking area is located out of sight to the front of the property.
One hectare of land surrounds the villa and though it is lovely and flat it is also on a variety of levels which gives a sense of privacy even though Lucignano is literally a few minutes away by car. There is a shady pergola covered sitting area to the side of the villa.
This property is not just beautiful on the outside; behind the stone exterior excellent insulation has been installed and the roof has had the same treatment which accounts for the excellent energy classification. A geothermal heating system has been fitted and this fires the underfloor heating and hot water. The property also has air conditioning.
A beautiful, traditional property which is well located and benefits from having been thoroughly restored to a high level. A superb residence in a terrific location.
Villa Lucignano is located near to two other properties which are also for sale: Villa Batini (a cluster of buildings grouped around a huge main house all to a builder's finish) and Casa Risani (a large farmhouse with a number of annexes and an amazing pool and pool house). All three properties have independent access and are private from each other.
