Prestigious castle for sale in Umbria, just minutes from the central Perugia, with a splendid view of the city, Mount Subasio and over the surrounding Assisi.
This luxury villa dominates the beautiful surrounding landscape from the top of a low hill.
Of ancient origin, probably dating from the first half of XIXth Century, the villa was sold at the end of the 19th Century to one of the most powerful families in the area that transformed what was then a beautiful building into a prestigious villa with robes of Neo-Gothic castle, with overt references to typically English architecture.
Characteristic battlements with dovetail corbels crown the villa and a high octagonal tower dominate the structure.
This villa is spread over 4 levels including a basement: in the latter it is accessed from both the ground floor and the garden, this part of the villa was designed for greenhouses, basements, sheds and warehouses.
The main entrance on the ground floor, still with the original main door in a perfect state of preservation, framed by a square stone portico decorated with family coats of arms and stucco painted.
If the outside of this castle is already so special and distinctive, the interior is just as good. Among the many details of prestige and great value, it is worth noting the Tapestry room with bay window decorated internally, the red room, study room where the cooker hood is painted with coats of arms, living room with coffered ceiling and bow windows.
All the rooms of this wonderful luxury castle are still decorated with original frescoes and stucco.
The main staircase leading to the first floor is made of marble steps and develops within the tower building.
Here is a library with a small bow window, frescoed ceilings and stucco.
A characteristic octagonal terrace, positioned at the top of the tower with battlements, allows a breathtaking 360 degree views of the entire surrounding countryside and the city.
A beautiful park of 6 hectares surrounds the luxury villa, which is fenced in with 2 main entrances with gates at the centre of a wall in travertine and brick pedestrian and two side gates at the sides. Crossed by a wide avenue lined with pine trees and is characterised by green areas designed by flower beds and wooded areas with tall trees.
Completing the beautiful property is a U-shaped stable built on three levels, the horses boxes are cast iron and wood, manufactured by a famous English company. There are also further outbuildings.
