Property - Carriage House for sale Lucca, Tuscany, Italy - Restoration Project for sale
Old Carriage House for Restoration with 1000 MSq of land. great views and the possibility of extending the habitable space
Amazing Original Features!
This old carriage house is situated in the municipality of Barga within walking distance of the railway station. shops. bars and restaurants. The nearest town is Fornaci di Barga. 2 minutes away by car. and the medieval city of Lucca is about 30 minutes away. You can also get to the beaches on the Tuscan coast from here in less than 60 minutes.
The building is set back slightly from a main road and so could be a perfect location for an activity. studio or shop. It is also possible to convert it into a house (civil habitation). All services are close by and easily connected and the garden area is listed as being buildable land and so the property could be extended to the rear with permissions. There is also full car access to the rear.
The building presently comprises three large rooms. not currently connected by a staircase. From the road. there are 2 storeys. You can see that the original entrance was larger than at present to allow horses and vehicles to enter. This entrance room was used. until recently. as a garage. The top floor requires extensive work to the roof. (Typical cost would be around 5K-15K Euro depending on how much of the present roof is salvageable). The 3rd storey. the cellar area. is below the level of the road and opens onto the extensive garden. Used as a wine cellar. it has a spectacular medieval vaulted ceiling.
In summary. the building needs total restoration but has lots of possibilitiess for use as a business / studio or as a unique residence. This is a great starter project for someone who wants to get into the Italian property market. The building has everything you should look for in a project property in Tuscany. It is spacious. has original features. full car access. great outside space. fabulous views and the possibility of extending the living space.
The asking price is 30. 0 euro negotiable. We have shown a Sterling amount just for this listing on UK ebay and the Sterling amount is. therefore. subject to change depending on the exchange rate. At the time of listing the rate is about 1. 17 euro to the pound.

On top of the asking price. you will need to consider the purchasing fees for buying in Italy which include: the Agency. Geometra. Notary and Sales tax. For budgeting purposes. when buying in Italy. you should normally expect to pay about 15% of the purchase price. However. this property has a very low asking price so assume fees totalling around 9. 00 euros as a rough estimate. This is a freehold property.
