We are pleased to offer this well renovated 4 bedroom village house with garden and within 30 metres of bar and shop in the hamlet of Riana, some 10km north of Barga and an hour from Pisa airport.
The village house provides some 150m2 of accommodation over two floors plus a lower ground cellar/basement. The entrance on the ground floor leads into a small hallway then a spacious living room with access to the terrace, a further hallway then kitchen with dining area, bedroom and bathroom. There is also an exit from the kitchen to the terrace and from the terrace a spiral staircase leads to the garden. A stone staircase leads to the first floor where there is a master bedroom with a private bathroom, a smaller bedroom with a French balcony and a further double bedroom currently used as a study. On the ground floor there is a large cellar/basement where there is a pellet stove, washing machine, small workshop and ample space to store garden/patio furniture. Access to the cellar is available both from the garden at the back of the house and also via a separate entrance at the side of the house. The renovations which were carried out enable the property to have several economical heating options such as gas, pellet stove or air to air heat pump. The heat pump can be operated via an app allowing this to be switched on remotely. There are good parking options close to the house. The village does have a bar/grocery store within 30 metres of the house, and has beautiful views over the Serchio valley below. An excellent property, renovated to a high standard whilst retaining many rustic features and ideal as a primary home or to provide rental facilities.
Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy. Now years later read some of their story.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.
When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
