Located close to the centre of the pretty town of Lajatico which can easily be reached on foot, less than 40 minutes from the sea and less than an hour from Pisa airport, we offer for sale this 4 bedroom 3 bathroom detached villa with garage and garden. The villa provides about 250m2 of accommodation over two floors and sits in a garden of some 500m2. The villa is currently laid out as three apartments with the main entrance to the villa being to the right of the property with stairs leading to the first floor and the main apartment. This apartment includes an entrance hall, kitchen with small toilet, dining room, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. To the west side of this floor there is a large panoramic terrace which also provides access to the garden, whilst the other side also has a lovely terrace with room to sit outside. The ground floor is accessible from several sides and on the left of the villa there is an apartment with independent entrance which consists of a kitchen, living room, hallway, bedroom, bathroom and closets. A further apartment towards the right consists of entrance, kitchen, bathroom, hallway and boiler room. The villa is in good structural condition, but would benefit from interior customisation work to update all the facilities which do include natural gas heating but currently without the relevant certification. The property sits in a private garden of some 500m2 which is completely fenced, and does also include a garage and several outbuildings including a workshop used as a forge where all the iron railings, fencing and pretty wrought iron work surrounding the villa was crafted. The villa would be ideal as either a single villa, or even to provide further accommodation for rental or as a receptive property due to its location within walking distance to the centre of Lajatico and closeness to the Teatro del Silenzio hosted each year by Andrea Bocelli.
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.
