Restored Detached Home with garden in popular hill village close to the town of Bagni di Lucca in Tuscany 

This recently restored property is in a hill village close to the popular town of Bagni di Lucca in Tuscany. The exterior is in beautifully restored local stone and electrics, plumbing and doors and windows are all new and of excellent quality.  There are 2 ample bedrooms upstairs, an attractive kitchen/dining area and bathroom on the ground floorand good outside space with 2 small gardens.

There is also a large cantina (cellar), connected to the kitchen by a trap door and a staircase and this could easily be made a permanent passage way by simply installing a railing at the top of the stairs and removing the trap door.  The cantina has been excavated and could be made into extra living space.  There is also the possibility of a second bathroom at this level.

There is central heating with radiators fitted and connected, although the central heating system needs to be completed by installing a boiler.  But the main part of the work has been done.  For now, an electric water heater provides hot water.  So the house could be used immediately during the summer and all year round once the central heating system is completed.

The beautiful and unspoilt medieval hill village location has a bar, pizzeria and shop and is only 10 minutes by car from Bagni di Lucca.  There are stunning views all around and lots of activities in the local area including great walks right from the front door.  There is also horse-riding, swimming at the open air pool in Bagni di Lucca and skiing in the winter is just 45 minutes away at Abetone.  Bagni di Lucca is a bustling town with a market, lots of restaurants and bars and all other services.  A great place to be in the summer.

There is car parking just 50M from the house with no steep climbs to the property.

It may be possible to install a small pool in the second garden.  The house has close neighbours as you can see from the photos, but it is actually completely detached and free-standing.

The property is fully habitable and you could be enjoying life in Tuscany this summer in a truly great location. 

The asking price is 65,000 euros (recently reduced from a 85,000 euro which was still a fair price).  We have shown a Sterling amount just for this listing on UK ebay and the Sterling amount is, therefore, subject to change depending on the exchange rate. At the time of listing the rate is 1.20 euro to the pound so the cost would actually be much closer to 54,000 pounds.

Please see our other property listings in Tuscany on our main website at

On top of the asking price, you will need to consider the purchasing fees for buying in Italy which include: the Agency, Geometra, Notary and Sales tax.  For budgeting purposes, when buying in Italy, you should normally expect to pay about 15% of  the purchase price.  So assume fees totalling around 9,000 euros as a rough estimate.  This is a freehold property.

But, first, you need to come out and view the property before anything else.  Email or phone us to discuss further.
