Fort for sale in La Spezia ,Liguria
Property for sale in La Spezia
This typical fort for sale is in La Spezia, a beach town on the Riviera di Levante.
This property was built around the end of the 19th century, to defend the gulf against attacks coming from the backcountry. The wars left deep signs on the building, which was left abandoned for a long time.
The fort has now been completely renovated and converted into a welcoming place. It stands on a rampart surrounded by defensive walls with two caponiers that can be accessed from inside the property. This property has two floors, measures approximately 250 m2 overall and offers a fantastic view of the sea.
The “pieces” area, which is the upper area where cannons were usually kept to defend the fort, is delimited by two arcades, called “riservette” (small storages) and once used to store ammunition.
This building has the distinctive features of defensive fortresses: hand-crafted stones, bricked vaults, and cotto-tiled floors are found throughout the estate.
?The ground floor is home to dining rooms, a professional kitchen and some utility rooms. The upper floor can be accessed through a flight of steps that is also accessible by service vehicles.
?The fort is surrounded by approximately 2 hectares of luxuriant grounds featuring a forest with cork oaks and centuries-old holm oaks.
This property can be further enhanced by extending the existing building. This estate for sale is truly a rare, unique opportunity in the Italian real estate market.
