RESTORED CASTLE FOR SALE IN TUSCANY


In a panoramic position in the landscape made famous by Piero della Francesca, finely restored medieval castle with 65.9 hectares of land. The property can currently accommodate up to 20 bedrooms and features a beautiful 18 × 5 m swimming pool. The property is an excellent choice as either a private house or an accommodation business, also thanks to a rural hamlet that could be restored to increase the number of bedrooms for the guests.

Services are all available in the nearby medieval town (5 km), but the most interesting cities of Tuscany can be reached in less than two hours by car (Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano…).

The closest airport is in Perugia (78km; 1h) but the terminals in Florence, Pisa, Bologna and Rome are equally convenient.


DESCRIPTION OF THE CASTLE


The castle (1,715 sqm – 18,453 sqft, 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms), dating back to the 11th century, is laid over four floors:

- Basement: ample cellars and storage rooms;

- Ground floor: dining room, ample kitchen (capable of accommodating up to 24 guests), storage rooms, laundry, five bedrooms and four bathrooms;

- First floor: library with fireplace, four ample halls (two living rooms and two reception rooms), formal dining room, four bedrooms and three bathrooms;

- Second floor: several rooms, once used by the servants, could be converted into bedrooms for the guests.

The castle was recently renovated and brought back to its original splendor while fully complying with Italian anti-seismic laws. The halls, with their huge ceilings and the ample windows, are very bright and welcoming.

  FLOOR PLANS OF THE CASTLE

The country house N°1 (375 sqm – 4,035 sqft, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) is located not far from the castle and is laid over two floors. The building is ideal to create more bedrooms and expand the accommodation business.

 

Right next to the pool there is a spacious event hall (280 sqm – 3,013 sqft), created in what was in the past a drying barn for the tobacco harvested in the fields of the estate.


DESCRIPTION OF THE HAMLET


Not far from the castle there is a nice hamlet made up of stone building in various state of repair. Here below you can find a description of the buildings.

 

The country house N°2 (320 sqm – 3,443 sqft, 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom) is laid over three floors organized as follows:

- Ground floor: cellar and storage room;

- First floor: living room, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms and bathroom;

- Second floor: bedroom.

 

The country house N°3 (120 sqm – 1,291 sqft, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom) is laid over two floors:

- Ground floor: cellar and storage room;

- First floor: living room, dining room with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

 

The country house N°4 (210 sqm – 2,260 sqft, 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom) is laid over three floors. Leaned against the building there are several rooms which were in the past used as drying barns for tobacco.

- Basement: cellar and storage room;

- Ground floor: living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom and bathroom;

- First floor: two bedrooms.

 

The hamlet is then completed by a former drying barn (130 sqm – 1,399 sqft), a pigsty (45 sqm – 484 sqft) and a warehouse (30 sqm – 323 sqft). 


HISTORY OF THE CASTLE


The original castle can be dated back to the 11th century and was built to defend the road connecting the Tiber Valley and Valdarno together with the nearby Castello di Montauto. In the following years, the castle was reworked by the Barbolani di Montauto family so that it could be inhabited as a countryside manor: the property remained in the possession of the family until the 18th century. A fire destroyed the castle in 1178 and the building was only rebuilt in the 16th century, when it had no strategic purpose anymore. Nowadays, the building is a typical fortified villa, quadrangular in shape, with four round towers at its corners.

The 16th century (or even 17th century, as many historians have argued) reconstruction can be deduced by the huge loggia with windows on the upper floor: huge openings and windows were not suitable for a fortress since they offered an easy way in for the enemy in case of a siege and constituted a structural weakness.


EXTERIORS, USE AND POTENTIAL USES


A map of the land surrounding the castle: the borders of the property are highlighted in red.

The castle sits in a beautiful estate of 65.9 hectares (162.8 acres), covered for the most part in mixed woodland (46.0 ha) and arable fields (14.0 ha). Several olives (roughly 5.0 ha in total) allow producing excellent Tuscan olive oil.

 

Right behind the castle, in a quiet and retired position, there is a beautiful 18 × 5 m swimming pool with dressing room and shower.

 

The castle, given its retired position and the beautiful finishes, is perfect both as a private luxury house and as an accommodation business. The pool is further bonus, as is the proximity to many of the most interesting cities of Tuscany such as Florence, Arezzo and Siena.
