DESCRIPTION



HISTORICAL VILLA FOR SALE IN LUCCA, TUSCANY



At the doors of Lucca, in a hilly position, historic villa belonged in the past to Paolina Bonaparte. The property (over 4,700 sqm in total) includes, right beside the manorial villa, several outbuildings for a total of up to 26 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms. The villa is in good condition, while the outbuildings need to be totally restored. The property is surrounded by an 11.0-ha well-manicured garden with an impressive 43 × 4 m swimming pool.

Services are all available nearby (500 m) and are easily reached on foot. From Lucca one can then reach several of the most beautiful art cities of Tuscany in less than two hours by car (Pisa, Volterra, Florence, San Gimignano, Lucca…). The sea of Versilia is just thirty minutes away by car.



DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS



The manorial villa (1,148 sqm – 12,352 sqft, 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) is laid over three floors, accessed via lateral doors on the sides of the building or via the monumental staircases on the two main façades.

- Basement: cellar and storage room;

- Ground floor entrance with portico, two kitchens, ample living room, dining room, five sitting rooms, several closets and three bathrooms;

- Mezzanine floor: bedroom with en-suite bathroom;

- First floor: four reception halls, five sitting rooms (potentially convertible into bedrooms), two bathrooms and two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom;

- Second floor: lofts.

 

Not far from the villa is the old lemon house (430 sqm – 4,627 sqft, 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) laid over two floors:

- Basement: wardrobe, ironing room, laundry, pantry and bathroom;

- Ground floor: ample living room, hall, kitchen, dining room, closet, bedroom with enò-suite bathroom, bedroom and two bathrooms.

Right next to the lemon house is a greenhouse (108 sqm – 1,162 sqft) made out of concrete and glass, ideal to shelter the plants during winter.

 

The old farmer’s house (440 sqm – 4,734 sqft, up to 13 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms) is laid over two floors as follows:

- Ground floor: entrance room, laundry, cellar and garage;

- Mezzanine floor: independent apartment made up of living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom;

- First floor: eleven rooms and a bathroom (ideal to create many bedrooms for the guests).

Right next to the house is a ruined building (420 sqm – 4,519 sqft, once used as a stable for the animals and barn.

 

The keeper’s house (134 sqm – 1,442 sqft, 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom) is laid over two floors:

- Ground floor: entrance room, kitchen and living room;

- First floor: three bedrooms and a bathroom.

 

The property is then completed by a tool shed (60 sqm – 646 sqft) and many greenhouses (2,034 sqm – 21,886 sqft), in precarious structural condition, that could be rebuilt in their current shape or used as volumes for new buildings inside the property.



HISTORY, STATE AND FINISHES



The villa was already listed in the 17th century as a possession of the Buonvisi family (their coat of arms still dominated the entrance). Passing through the hands of many noble families of Lucca, it was finally bought in 1822 by Paolina Bonaparte who took care of restoring the building and had many of the current decorations added. In the following years, the villas was bought and/or inherited by the Boccella and Ruggero families, the counts Aubrey William Tealdi and ultimately by the current owners.

Nowadays the villa still looks exactly how it did in the early 19th century.



EXTERIORS



The stunning 11.0-hectare garden dates back to when Paolina owned the villa. She hired a famous English landscape architect who, positioning various elements in a carefully planned way, created the illusion that the park is much bigger than it really is. A huge cistern, still existent, was used in the past to irrigate the gardens.

The main gate opens onto a walkway flanking the villa: however, in drawings from the Napoleonic period the walkway reached the front of the villa and it is safe to assume that it was later changed into its current form.

The two Italian gardens were created at later date, when new owners took possession of the villa, and are located respectively next to the villa and the lemon house. The huge basin behind the villa, nowadays converted into a stunning 43 × 4 m swimming pool, is also a later addition to the property.

RECENTLY ADDED

The term Castle derives from castellum which, in turn, derives from Castrum, a Latin term that refers to a military settlement. It is, in fact, in Roman times that we find the first elements of castles, architectural structures that become even more important with the advent of the barbarians. These peoples, nomads and mostly devoted to hunting and war, were also particularly ferocious and it was therefore required to fortify the already existing military facilities.

 
With the fall of the Roman Empire and the advent of the Middle Ages the decentralization of power required the creation of different types of fortification. At the beginning the scene was dominated by the watch towers whose purpose was primarily military.
 
The different economic and social structure, typical of the Middle Ages, then, required the creation of fortified towns. The castle became, therefore, the nucleus of a decentralized economy that, from the city, now moved to the countryside. That’s why the castle appeared as real fortified village.

In modern times, with the advent of various forms of fortification, the castle lost its defensive role. The various castles began, therefore, to be converted into residences for noble families.
Currently many of the castles in Italy and Europe are in need of renovation and therefore represent an unique opportunity to give a new life to a piece of history.
 
Owning a castle, live in a castle and, even more, to revive a castle is surely one of the most exciting experiences of life.

BEAUTIFUL CASTLE FOR SALE IN TRENTINO

In the beautiful Non Valley, nestled on top of a hill among the Alps, Castel Valer dominated the surrounding valley. The fortress dates back to the 13th century and has been owned by the noble Spaur family since 1368: the counts have masterfully restored the building over the last twenty years, preserving its medieval charm and creating something really unique, where one would think to have gone back to the Middle Ages.



MAJESTIC CASTLE FOR SALE IN PIEDMONT, LANGHE

On top of a rocky spur overlooking the beautiful landscape of Langhe (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), incredible late-19th-century Neogothic castle currently working as a hotel. Result of a masterful renovation carried out with great care and love by the current owners since the 1960s, the castle (with its annexes) includes nowadays a total of 25 bedrooms and a restaurant. The private wood (roughly 2.0 ha) is an excellent spot for truffles but a project to convert this plot of land into a Nebbiolo/Barolo vineyard has already been approved (as it was in the past).



SEAFRONT CASTLE FOR SALE IN SORRENTO

In 1908 the building was awarded the title of National monument for its great historic and artistic value.
