Make like Diane Lane in Under The Tuscan Sun and buy your own slice of paradise with our million dollar find in Tuscany. This rustic farmhouse nestled in the hills at Via della Maolina is the perfect place to sip a big glass of red and take in the magnificent views of the medieval city of Lucca – one of the most beloved cities in all of Tuscany.
In the distance, bell towers and ancient churches add to the ambiance. An old military border has been transformed into a pedestrian promenade. Green grass and trees grow mightily along the walls, and couples can be spotted taking bike rides around the perimeter, strolling cobbled streets for a gelato and stopping for a rest beneath the Clock Tower or Basilica of San Frediano.
Currently listed by Sotheby’s International Realty for $1,098,266 U.S. dollars, and only 15 minutes from the city center of Lucca, Via della Maolina is a treasure worth having.
First off, you’ll be struck by the views, which are so idyllic they look like something out of a movie set. This is in part due to the fact that the property is surrounded by acres and acres of majestic olive groves and forest, with approximately 700 olive trees currently in production.
Close to the main road, the cottage is quite accessible as well, located just minutes from the heart of Lucca, and only 60 minutes from Florence, and 30 minutes from Pisa.
The Farmhouse property consists of of not one, but two buildings. A mill of 700, which remains intact, and features a separate room for bottling wine and oil. This structure comes complete with an underground water purification system and upper floor apartment with double bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.
And then there is the main house. A beautiful Tuscan retreat consisting of a large kitchen, living room, and four double bedrooms with three bathrooms. Overall, you’ll have a total of eight bedrooms and five full bathrooms to choose from, throughout the seductive Tuscany estate.
Just down the way, a guardian’s apartment with kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom are located in the same building. On the ground floor of the house there are several wine cellars – clearly presenting what movie buffs, and olive oil/wine aficionados would consider a dream come true.
We love the warm and inviting farmhouse interiors, and the way the soft Tuscan light radiate throughout the home. Exposed beams, gorgeous floors, and cheery windows framing picture perfect views create a welcoming homey feel.
