For a buyer that likes a bit of a challenge - and has plenty of spare cash - a beautiful 17th century Italian villa has hit the market, but it's in need of a little TLC to restore it to its full glory.
Located in the Tuscan countryside of Lucca, the four-storey home is filled with frescoed ceilings and walls. And with 11 bedrooms and nine bathrooms, the new buyer won't be short of space.
But the lower ground floor has only been partly renovated and there is still plenty of work to be done.
However, from the parts that are already fit for purpose the potential is clear. With a little graft, the new owner could soon be proud owner of a home suitable for royalty.
The price of the property is only available to interested applicants, but the buyer will evidently need deep pockets. Large villas in this romantic part of Italy typically command a price tag of £5million and above
