Located just 15 minutes away from Lucca in Italy, Villa dei Satiri is a fabulous piece of real estate that flaunts 59,105 square feet of living space and sits on a 29-acre lot. In 1366, the lot was occupied by an imposing fortress that was purchased by an influential Florentine family.
Built upon the ruins of the old fortress, the villa now comes with a price tag of $21.5 million and includes a lavish living area that spreads over four stories, all of which are linked by an indoor staircase. Once inside, the owners and their guests are greeted by a spacious entryway that offers access to a porch and an internal courtyard that faces a Summer House.
Speaking of the Summer House, it boasts 6,716 square feet of space and was designed by architect Diodati. It includes a rooftop terrace as well as several balustrades that impress with eye-catching mosaic elements. The asking price also guarantees ownership of the Farm, which features three levels of its own as well as an internal courtyard and a garden. The property further includes a restaurant, the Baths and an outstanding House of Butterflies.
The villa itself has been renovated for the most part, but it could still use some finishing touches. As one of the most noteworthy examples of Tuscan architecture, Villa dei Satiri previously hosted some of the world’s most renowned personalities, including Anna de’ Medici, Napoleon Bonaparte and Ferdinand of Austria.
