Stunning historical castle with a prestigious chapel surrounded by 63 hectares of grounds near Perugia
Prestigious period estate in a high and extremely panoramic setting upon Umbria's Tiber valley
This charming Medieval castle for sale is between Umbertide and Gubbio, surrounded by Umbria's leafy hills, in a stunning panoramic position overlooking the surrounding valley.
Strategically located for its proximity to the most well-known centers of Umbria and Tuscany and easily reachable by crossing exciting paths that run through the Tiber valley, this luxury property boasts 63 hectares of grounds, of which 9,300 square meters featuring a well-tended lawn, which surrounds the castle on four sides. The huge outdoor spaces of the property also include a luxuriant forest, a part dedicated to arable land, and tree pastures, as well as a beautiful olive grove.
This prestigious building of inestimable historical and architectural value consists of a wonderful castle, a majestic building that is spread over four levels, measures 2,400 square meters and is currently unfinished. Opposite, there is a small noble chapel of 126 square meters, built in the second half of the 18th century and dedicated to the Madonna. which still retains the religious decorations, in the basement of which it is possible to create an elegant cellar for wine tasting. Adjacent to this, there is an outbuilding, ideal as a caretaker's house which, following a renovation, could easily accommodate two bedrooms and two bathrooms in its 350 square meters of internal surface.
The luxury castle we admire today was built on the ruins of another fortress, dating back to the 11th century and previously destroyed during a siege. The current building is the result of the union of various pre-existing structures and features a square tower and a semicircular keep, combined with a rectangular safe.
This prestigious complex, subject to historical constraints of the Ministry of Cultural and Environmental Heritage, over the centuries has undergone numerous maintenance interventions that have mainly affected the external structure, today in excellent condition. The interiors, on the other hand, need an important restoration to return to their original splendor and to reconvert the structure, originally born as a fortress, into a luxury home. An existing project also provides for the construction of a charming hotel, thanks above all, to its big size, which would make it possible to obtain large rooms dedicated to welcoming guests and relaxation, a large number of bedrooms and suites and an exclusive wellness center.
This splendid medieval castle with a prestigious chapel for sale near Perugia, surrounded by 63 hectares of land, is ideal for those who dream of a fairytale home in an absolutely suggestive and extraordinarily panoramic location above the Umbrian Tiber Valley.
