Prestigious 18th-century Noble Palace In Franciacorta
Majestic residential complex in a stunning high position on the hills of Franciacorta
Luxurious historical estate for sale on top of a hill in the province of Brescia
In a stunning high position on the hills of Franciacorta, there is this prestigious residential complex for sale, home to an 18th-century noble palace.
Its extraordinary location, on the top of a hill a few kilometers from the charming center of Gussano, in the province of Brescia, is strategic for reaching Lake Iseo and the big towns of Bergamo and Verona in a short distance. Particularly enchanting thanks to the beautiful landscapes that dominate the entire territory of Franciacorta, it offers a magnificent panoramic view which, on clearer days, reaches the profile of the Apennines in the distance.
The centuries-old park, which measures 1.8 hectares, descends gently towards the valley, offering breathtaking views, which can also be enjoyed from the splendid swimming pool and tennis court.
This majestic ancient estate was built at the end of the 18th century by one of the historic Roman families, exponents of the papal aristocracy. Its size is important, over 3,000 square meters between the main house and the various apartments on the sides.
Access to the property is through a majestic gate, designed by the famous Brescian architect Rodolfo Vantini. Once passed, an enchanting avenue winds its way, leading to the belvedere terrace and to the large portico on the ground floor.
The interiors, renovated with great care by the current owner, have maintained all the charm of the past over the centuries, thanks above all to the numerous frescoes that decorate the halls of this estate, original of the time, attributed to the famous Brescian painter Angelo Inganni and to others from his school. The main body of the building has two floors above ground, and a top floor with exposed beams. The lower floor is entirely dedicated to the living areas, with a big kitchen with a spit roast, a beautiful frescoed dining room and a huge living room.
The second floor is occupied by the main apartment and two more apartments, the smaller of which has original floors. The main apartment, which is in the central part of the building, is a sort of noble floor that develops from the splendid gallery, which acts as a link between big decorated frescoed halls. Very bright, it boasts restored terracotta floors and splendid frescoes in perfect condition to decorate the three bedrooms and bathrooms, made with precious marble.
Behind the building there is an internal courtyard overlooked by a second big building, arranged over two floors. Originally used as a warehouse and stables, today it is restored in a rustic style and all to be personalized, ideally for more apartments or garages. In the courtyard, there are also two other apartments for the caretakers and one for guests, while four garages in the side wing complete this majestic estate for sale in Franciacorta, ideal for those looking for a home with an important history or for those wishing to undertake a highly prestigious accommodation business.
