Grand and historic 60 room castle with a vast total built area of 2,685m2, set within a large dominant hilltop setting on a plot of 9,000m2, situated behind the village of Menaggio, in a dominant and panoramic position with lovely views over the entire city.
The construction, which dates back to the 10th Century, with only the perimeter walls of the original structure are visible. The current building was built in 1616 on the ruins of the fortification where the church of San Carlo was erected, which gave hospitality to the religious community of the Lutheran Regular Canons.
The complex for sale is located next to this wonderful medieval village that characterises the historic centre and is completely surrounded by an enchanting park, which guarantees a private and cosy setting.
It is composed of a parallelepiped that constitutes a very large central building, a building used as a residence and an additional 3rd independent building, all 3 available to be sold separately.
The central structure is very large and enjoys breathtaking views of most of Lake Como; it is distinguished by the size of its rooms, by the imposing central staircase and by the presence of remarkable chimneys, one in particular of very large dimensions that characterises the main room.
The residence instead is an independent villa a few steps from the main building, characterised by striking views of the mountains and a beautiful veranda with large windows that provides enchanting views of the park, in harmony with the remarkable greenery that surrounds it.
All of the properties have 2 convenient entries, a driveway and a pedestrian one from the stupendous ancient village.
