Beautiful Villa of important historical and architectural value, dating back to the 17th century, originally belonging to the noble Benassai family, for Sale, just a short distance from Lucca.
In a private and reserved location, the property is accessed through an elegant avenue lined with cypress trees, in addition to the land of approximately 2 hectares, which guarantee the Villa undisturbed privacy, despite the fact that it is close to all the services and shops, as well as to the historical centre of Lucca.
The Villa, measuring approximately 1000 square metres in total, has a rectangular shape on the outside, and is characterised, on the main façade, by the loggia, in a central and elevated position, an area also known as the "belvedere", bordered by columns, with a panoramic view over the countryside. Elevated on three floors, connected internally by a staircase, it consists of several rooms, including the large reception hall, on the first floor, which occupies the central part of the Villa in all its depth, adorned with squares with paintings of country scenes, and enlightened, on both opposite sides, by three windows, which guarantee not only brightness, but also panoramic views of both the garden in front of the Villa, and the land on the back. The second floor is also on staggered levels, as the central part, above the large living room, is higher.
This exclusive property remains one of the finest examples of 17th century Lucchese country Villa architecture, although it needs a complete renovation and restoration of the gardens, to bring back the Villa to its original splendour.
