This unique property is located at 10 mins from Lucca. The owners, both architects, being artists and designers for the most famous Italian Companies, created this place as a laboratory of ideas and projects. Driving along an antique asphalted narrow road, arriving at the entrance of the property, it seems to have been arrived to an a white contemporary retreat. Built on the white marble rocks, every windows offers a spectacular view of Lucca, while enjoying the silence of the place.The property is composed of a main villa with 4 doubles, and a guest house located at few meters from it. The property consists of 10 hectares of olive groves and woods located on the nearest Lucca hills, 200 meters of altitude above the town. A narrow pathway inside the property is at public use, so it can be rarely driven by some bikers.
Due to the system of enlightening the houses, they light is very bright in every room, due to very large windows fitted with its original shutters, which, like a piece of art, create shade in summer and catch the light deeply in winter.
White sculptures are exposed in the various parts of the main house, inside and outdoor.The central part of the main house is organized around a spectacular staircase represented as a red dazzling evening dress. Rock of white marble is present in the house and appears on the three floors. Architecture, furniture, lamps, sculptures, almost everything has been conceived, designed and custom made for the villa by their owners.
The very special feature of the house is the hydraulic roof which can be opened a 30 degree angle like the wings of a butterfly thanks to six pistons.
It is the first house in the world with a hydraulic roof. This allows natural ventilation to cool the house and brings to the villa a very unique magic sensation of literally sleeping under the stars.
