Villa Mulino | Property for sale
Zone: San Macario - Lucca
The property is located in a slightly hilly area of the outskirts of Lucca, not far from the main road connecting the city to Versilia. You can reach Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi in a very short time, but you are also close to many other Tuscan places of interest, such as Pisa, Florence or the Garfagnana.
The territory in which the property is located has retained many of its typical features, and preserves much of the look that had for centuries: there are many ancient farming villages and small towns scattered around the hills of Lucca. The property itself is an example of the rural traditions that have historically characterized this region of Italy.
The property is an old mill, built along a small stream in 1741, with an adjoining cottage. The beauty of the place can be felt even in access, because, to reach the buildings, it is necessary to cross a pretty stone bridge that passes over the stream. Around the buildings lies a garden of about an acre, but the property also includes two acres of woodland. The area is very quiet and, despite its location near the village, enjoys total privacy.
The garden is very spacious and offers opportunities to residents both of rest and of fun, thanks to the presence of a wonderful swimming pool measures 10 m x 6 m.
The mill, with its 500 m2 in size, is the patronal villa. The renovation project has provided for the recovery and reuse of old materials in every part of the house; the interiors are very large, have many elements typical rustic Tuscan architecture and are decorated with real parts of the old mill, such as grinders or mechanical wheels. In the living area you will be fascinated by the simple and natural beauty of the large kitchen and spacious dining room. As for the sleeping area, there is a cloakroom, a utility room and 4 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom; the master bedroom is very special: in its bath the tubs were built reusing stone containers of the ancient mill.
The cottage is still under renovation; it measures 160 m2 and will include two guest apartments.
