The Compitese area, located on the slopes of the Lucca side of the Monti Pisani, is known and loved for its typical stone houses, mills built on impetuous streams, narrow cobbled streets, private gardens of the austere villas, full of fragrant camellia plants. Right in the heart of a old hamlet is for sale this elegant and perfectly renovated typical Tuscan stone exposed country home. Probably belonging in the past times to the diocese of Lucca, it was then used as a farmhouse with stable: the remains of this ancient use are still evident in the garden, where is a well, while on the stone facade you can see the iron hooks where the corn cobs were hung to be dried. The last definitive renovation took place about 12 years ago, by the current owner, who brought the otherwise abandoned structure back to life.
The L-shape stone exposed country home is divided into 2 units: the smaller one, of about 110 m2, is arranged over two floors with entrance, bedroom, en suite bathroom, living area with fireplace and fitted kitchen, characterized by large windows and therefore very bright, while on the first floor is a second bedroom with bathroom, with the typical “mandolato” left intact. The soft colors, the honey-colored beams and the terracotta floors make the environment warm and welcoming.
The largest house is instead set on three floors, with a surface of about 340 square meters. The ground floor has a covered patio, ideal for outdoor dining during the summer: the entrance takes place in the living room, flanked by the large kitchen connected to a pantry/laundry room and service bathroom, and by a more intimate living room with fireplace and Tuscan oven. The stone staircase allows you to reach the first floor, where there are three bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom. On the second floor are also three bedrooms, all with en suite bathroom: of the total six bedrooms , two of them enjoy an intimate living room. Where possible, the original beams have been preserved, otherwise replaced with new wooden beams.
The two houses overlook the private garden, made very discreet by the presence of a stone wall and accessible both from a pedestrian gate and from a driveway gate: you can get to the house with a small car, while a public car park is available only a few meters away. Included in the sale is a land of about 4000 m2, not far from the property, where private parking can be arranged. All around there are other stone houses and in the background the Monte Pisano, where the wise, old olive tree and the elegant, ancient camellia indicate two keys to understand a territory that is still intact and fascinating in its simplicity.
