The wonderful Tuscan Estate Podere Casalavia is an historical country…
Via Gino Innocenti, 50032 Luco Mugello FI, Italia
Luco country home sits central to 3 hectares of farmland, near Borgo San Lorenzo and Scarperia with wonderful views over the Mugello on the hills above Fiesole, north of Florence.
The area has an incredible amount of tourist attractions and medieval villages, a major attraction is the nearby large artificial lake Lago di Bilancino, ideal for sailing, surfing and swimming and the Golf Course near Scarperia. The reason why Mugello might ring a bell for you is the “Autodromo di Mugello”, particuarly attractive for motor-enthusiasts!
This Tuscan property is originally from two centuries ago. Luco country home has been restructured in the late sixties, maintaining it with its character of a rural farmhouse. Typical architectural Tuscan country house traits are wooden beams, thick stone walls, roofs of clay tiles and terracotta floors. The house is in need of renovation particularly regarding utilities, for example at the moment most rooms have terracotta stoves or open fire places for heating. Electricity lines have been renewed at the time and all windows (wood) had been renewed with single layer glazing and wooden shutters as it was custome at the time. Hot water is provided by two electric heaters, cooking on bottled methane gas.
A small cellar exists accessible from the main entrance hall in the ground floor.
A large landscaped rose garden has been planted in front of the house, including a large number of large trees and hedges.
Two parking spaces exist at present behind then house, and there is ample room to extend the landscaped garden area, terraces and more.
At this time the house is one large villa, however, its layout could be conducive to be subdivided into three comfortable units, the ground floor, the upper floor with an external entrance from the back of the house half a flight up the staircase, and the Annex, each of the units having their own private terrace. All of those units enjoy spectacular views.
