Wonderfully restored estate, for Sale near Lucca, former residence of Marquise de Tucci set in a quiet, very secure and safe location with exceptional rural views.
Located within walking distance from the charming village of Aquilea that offers all basic amenities.
The Villa has been in part restored to the highest possible standard providing all 21st century comfort whilst original features have been preserved and restored with meticulous detail. Throughout one finds original frescos, impressive fireplaces and stone/terracotta features.
The Villa that maintained its traditional layout is laid out over three floors:
The ground floor comprises: services rooms, cellar, storage room and laundry.
