Luxury Castle For Sale In The Province Of Pavia
Historical castle for sale near Milan
Prestigious castle for sale at the outskirts of Milan
This luxury castle for sale in the province of Pavia stands in the heart of the hills North of the Po valley and is close to Milan.
This property was the subject of 30 years of renovation works, guided by the passion of the owners who obtained as a feud by the hands of Emperor Frederick Barbarossa in the 12th century. This luxury estate has had defensive purposes since the Middle Ages and represented its hamlets commercial and economic power for a long time.
Following modifications over the years, it is currently composed of three bodies; an older one dating back to the 13th century, a second building that probably dates back to the 1400s, and the middle one, which dates back to the 18th century and has a 12th-century tower that was used as a prison for several years.
This luxury estate measures 7,358 m2 overall and has several floors. The ground floor, adjacent to the garden, is still home to an old 13th-century ice-house and the old cellars, which have been restored and are still used to preserve wines and cured pork but also a venue for different kinds of events.
The first floor features the noblest rooms: a wedding suite and adjoining Room of the Abbot. The old stables have become the hall of the “Ancient Mangers”, where the old arch and stone floors can still be seen. The barn above it is currently home to the main dining room, while the refined hall adjoining has been dedicated to “Donna Caterina”: a fitting homage to the parents of the current owner, who were the ones who started the renovation works.
The exteriors have also been brought back to their old splendour and feature the Garden of the Countess, the Lemon Conservatory, and a wonderful park in full bloom measuring 5,000 m2 that is perfect for outdoor receptions.
Other great features of this estate for sale are its surroundings' exceptional landscapes and the chance to taste excellent products or do outdoor sports such as hiking, horseriding, cycling or go on exciting hunts, which make this area perfect for one-day food and wine tasting trips or for relaxing family holidays for those who love nature.
