Italian castle from 1825 with 200 ha of land and vineyards close to Siena
This commanding Italian castle for sale out of the 19th century is situated close to Siena in Tuscany, surrounded by meadows and wood land with sweeping views across the Tuscan landscape and onto Siena. Already at the time, in 1825, this castle was denominated as a manorial palace in the land register. In 1869, the palace was converted adding Gothic building elements and a spectacular central courtyard with a colonnade. On the Piano Nobile there are windows with lancet arches, while the windows on the other levels feature single arched Gothic windows. Another distinctive feature is the octagonal chapel on the ground floor and the grand salon on the first floor with wooden wall panels and a large masoned open fireplace. Beautiful cross- and barrel vaulted ceilings can be found on the ground floor. The castle offers about 2,000 m² on three levels. While the ground floor comprises the characteristic colonnade, several salons, poolroom, and the before mentioned chapel, the upper floors are currently split into 6 apartments. Also here, many salons still feature the original flooring and ceiling frescoes. The property also comprises several small buildings with a total surface of about 600 m², which are used as storage or cellar rooms. The castle is embedded in a landscaped Italian park on about 1 hectare with a mature tree population, well-tended hedges and a historic water basin. For sale is the entire property, with parts of the agricultural parcels of land being optional.
