I own a charming fully renovated semi-attached Casa Colonica with large garden in the lovely countryside of Lucca, the only city in the world with a walkable intact circle of ancient walls surrounding the town centre. You'll love it: huge rooms, old chestnut beams, high ceilings, old fireplace and stone sink, decorated with a charming mix of antiques and contemporary pieces.
Here is a brief description, just ask for further details:
1) First Floor: 100 sqm.
Elegant 40 sqm large living room with high cathedral beamed ceilings and old original fireplace;
1 40 sqm bedroom with fireplace;
1 16 sqm double bedroom with queen size bed;
1 large bathroom with white ceramic tiles, bath tub ad separate shower.
Hard wood floors, 2 fireplaces, pellet stove.
2) Ground Floor: 100 sqm.
40 sqm fully equipped kitchen and living area with beamed ceilings and door which leads directly out on to private terrace space and garden;
middle sitting room;
one room currently used as a office/studio
one bathroom with blue ceramic tiles with large shower

The beds are really comfortable, down quilts and Frette and Flou linens are provided.

In case of SIMULTANEOUS exchange, the whole house will be at your disposal, except the walk-in closet.
In case of NON-SIMULTANEOUS exchange the whole 1st floor + the 40 sqm kitchen downstairs, terrace and garden will be yours (140 sqm totally). I'll keep for my self a part of downstairs, but due to the structure of the house, you'll enjoy total privacy and separate entrance.
