Lucca Tuscany Manor Villa Complex – Development Opportunity

This Tuscany development opportunity is located in the scenic hills near Lucca, and presents a historic 19th-century manor villa and several outbuildings on a panoramic estate. The buildings span a total of 2,225 square metres (23,941 square feet) with the estate offering a diverse range of buildings, including residential and rural structures, with restoration potential suitable for private and/or commercial use.

The main villa, partially restored and set across four floors, The basement includes the old cellars where they once stored olive oil and wine. The upper floors include, in total, twenty-nine halls, dining rooms and bedrooms, nine bedrooms (seven of which have bathtubs) and four kitchens (including a historic one, no longer used but very interesting, on the ground floor). The building features two main entrances on the eastern and western façades, a secondary entrance on the northern side and two French windows on the southern side. An external staircase allows you to enter the first and second floors independently, with the possibility of creating up to five independent apartments inside the villa. The property is in good condition but requires updating and retains classical features such as marble floors, original frescoes, wood beam ceilings, and stone walls, all complemented by a garden rich in exotic and fruit plants spread over 7,000 square metres (1.7 acres). The garden, alongside the buildings, offers an idyllic setting with stunning views, encapsulated within a secure stone wall.

Additional structures include a farmhouse with a private chapel requiring renovation, a historical lemon house perfect for conversion, and several smaller buildings like a barn, an old lavatory, and a charming temple with a terrace offering expansive views.

The property is strategically located just 2 km from a local town with amenities and within easy driving distance of Tuscany’s renowned cities such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence, and Siena.
