Step into a realm of historic grandeur with this exquisitely preserved villa, nestled in the aristocratic estates just outside Lucca. This invaluable property has a rich heritage that traces back to the late 16th century, and is a masterpiece erected by the prestigious Diodati family, part of the famed “Italian Cabal.” Today, it is stewarded by a family with a distinguished legacy in antiques and restoration.

Undergoing meticulous restoration in 1980, this domicile spans an extraordinary 480 sqm, accompanied by a chapel of 55 sqm and two greenhouses of 260 and 124 sqm respectively. Altogether, the estate encompasses 0.56 hectares of pure Tuscan tranquility.

The villa unfolds across three floors, offering 34 rooms that include seven luxurious bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. Exclusive details such as the noble crest gracing the façade and the elegant terraces and staircases leading to the ‘Festive Hall’—a masterpiece in romantic frescoes—are what set this property apart as truly unique.

Beyond the interconnected rooms of immense value, the villa incorporates a master bedroom with an en-suite marble bathroom, two additional bedrooms, a regal dining room, a more intimate second room, a rustic kitchen graced by a grand fireplace, a pantry, and additional washrooms.

The ground floor, originally designated for staff, hosts a charming billiards room adorned with frescoed ceilings and a tavern equipped with a traditional wood-burning oven. The mezzanine on the second floor offers further opportunities for expansion.

Outside, a sumptuous park frames a consecrated chapel and the “Serre,” an auxiliary building currently used as a storage space but originally a furniture restoration workshop, nodding to the current owner’s passions.

With a centralized gas heating system, the villa ensures year-round living comfort. Prepare yourself for an exquisite journey through time with this residence, an authentic emblem of aristocratic elegance in the heart of Tuscany.
