Have your own Under The Tuscan Sun experience with this amazing deal in Tuscany!
Imagine yourself as Frances Mayes on vacation in Tuscany, stumbling by chance upon this diamond in the rough in a small village on the slopes of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. On a whim, you scrape up all your savings and have enough to purchase the fixer-upper and some left over for renovations (and chocolate, of course, lots of chocolate).
Friends, it is entirely possible! This gorgeous project is for sale for approximately $80,000 USD. The house is located near the village of Lunigiana in Tuscany, Bagnone, Italy.
The traditional stone house dates back to the early 1800’s and has 6 bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms.
It requires some renovation, yes, but even in its current state, it is absolutely intriguing.
The building is currently divided into three units but it could be converted back into a large house with a detached guest house.
It’s like stepping into a time capsule, deep in the Tuscan hills!
The listing photos are reminiscent of still-life paintings.
It must be that legendary Tuscan light!
And the views…
Look at some of the original features that could be saved and restored:
Hand-painted ceiling fresco!
An antique bed was left behind:
Francis Mayes found a bed just like this one in her rescued Tuscan villa! (Well, in the movie anyway).
This stunning armoire also comes with the property:
Be one with the Tuscan countryside through the shuttered windows…
The villa has not one, but three cellars full of unknown treasures…
The courtyard leads to a “characteristic stone gallery and there is a garden accessible through an old carved portal.”
You can grow your own grapes, olives, or Italian herbs!
After a long day of renovating, you can skip over to the nearby village for some authentic Italian fare and wine in the Piazza.
House Crazy Sarah is enthralled! For $80,000, you could be living your old house dream under the warm Tuscan sun – just like Frances Mayes!
