This beautiful house was once a medieval watchtower of the year 1000, located in the oldest village of Lunigiana Irola di Sotto, in the town of Villafranca in Tuscany. The property is completely and finely restored following the classic Tuscan rural style: stone walls both inside and outside, ancient wooden beams, iron stairs that make interiors of rare beauty and harmony. 10 beds, 3 bathrooms (1 per floor), modern kitchen with every comfort, barbecue and private parking. The location is ideal to admire the green Tuscan valleys, the numerous Romanesque churches scattered on the “Via Francigena”, which offered (and offer) rest to the many pilgrims who, going along it, went to Rome. Ideal place to experience nature in its true essence, the renovation was carried out with the intent of highlighting original architectural details such as, for example, a “slide” that allowed the Armigers to throw boiling oil on the invaders, old loopholes, internal passages, rooms with vaulted ceilings in stone and brick. The heating is natural gas, not excluding ancient but working chimneys and stoves. The electrical system has been built with retractable traces and has all the modern safeguards. The property is surrounded on 4 sides by land of exclusive property and allows an integral privacy and sunshine; below you can admire the magnificent river Magra (suitable for bathing and fishing) and the natural park that, with its slow and shiny flowing, gives the landscape a touch of frivolity. A few minutes’ walk through the woods, one can get to the mill: a beautiful natural lake with a stunning waterfall. Free and immediately habitable, this beautiful residence is located at the end of an ancient village at a height of mt. 450 - the building is on 3 floors with mezzanines useful and easily accessible (therefore 5 levels). During the renovation has been created the possibility of dividing the property into two apartments with independent access.
