Just outside the old town center of a characteristic village, 20 minutes from Cetona, stands this charming property with a surface area of 610 square meters. It offers a panorama of rare beauty, embracing with its towers a view that goes from Tuscany to Umbria. The property consists of the main building with the two towers, the historic residence, which fits perfectly in the 6000 square meters of park, where there is also a SPA, with several halls for different beauty treatments, and a panoramic swimming pool.
The old palace dates back to the 50s of the XIX century and it was built according to the neo-Gothic style. One of the two towers is very old: the lower tower is the oldest, it dates back to 1500, while the central body and the second tower have been built only in 1800. On the towers the landscape that one can see is pretty incredible, from there one can enjoy the view over the landscape, from the Mountain of Cetona, up to the Trasimeno lake and the countryside, up to Cortona. The estate is set over three levels, it has been fully and carefully restored, so that all the original artistic and architectural features have been well-maintained, such as the frescos on the dining rooms on the ground floor. The restoration works have lasted for 3 years, from 2007 to 2010 and they have been involved in the whole building: the roof, the floors, the bathrooms, the bedrooms and the upstairs, all have been restored. Even many windows date back to the XIX century and have been restored, as well as the furniture. The restoration work has made possible to update all the plants and the facilities so that the property could provide all the comfort. The property is provided with an LPG heating system, there are also many fireplaces and stoves in the whole building, but there is the opportunity to connect it to the existing natural gas plants, that are nearby the building. There is also the air conditioning system, WI-FI, and a freight elevator. The front of the building is embellished with three beautifully decorated doors dated the XIX century and shows interesting coats of arms of ancient nobles families that here lived in the past. The walls of the property are embellished with Cotto details and neo-Gothic mullioned windows of the two towers. On the ground floor, there are many lovely living rooms with frescoes and fireplaces, perfect for dinner and lunch with several guests. All the rooms are embellished with 19th-century frescoes and antique furniture, that gives to the house the atmosphere of the ancient time when this property was inhabited by nobles families. It is noteworthy the beauty and the grace of the original glass decorated doors, as well as the small tubs for wine and water on the wall in the dining rooms. On the ground floor, there is also a professional kitchen and an equipped external area for lunches. The access to the upper floors is embellished by a beautiful staircase made according to the Art Nouveau style. On the first and on the second floor there are a total of 8 suites, each one has a hallway, a double bedroom, and a bathroom. Some of them have a private balcony, one of the suites is located in the more ancient tower. On the top of the tower, there is a nice terrace characterized by a battlements line on the border, as all the medieval towers. One of the suites has all the facilities for the handicapped persons and is possible to go upstairs thanks to the freight elevator. At the property entrance, there is a wonderful line of trees and plants, such as oleander and old redwoods. The 6000 sq.m. park has beautiful high plants, like redwoods, pine trees, linden trees, buckeyes, cedars from Lebanon, surrounded by walkways and flowerbeds shaped like a four-leaf clover. There are also an ancient planter and a birdhouse, already restored. The beautiful birdhouse has been restored and converted into a beauty treatment salon, where one time here used to live exotic birds and baboons. On the backside of the property there is an antique outbuilding of 100 sq.m., once used as a storage room for the lemon plants. Currently, it has been restored and has a SPA on two levels, with steam room, Jacuzzi tub, Finnish sauna, chromotherapy area, massage room, and tea room. On the roof has been installed solar panels. Nearby, we have a beautiful swimming pool of mt 9,30 x 4, recently built in the shade of a walnut tree. The pool area includes a small Jacuzzi pool. In the garden, there is also a rainy well as well as some old tanks for the rainwater. There is also a lot of place for cars. This building is a great investment opportunity for those who want to use it as a private residence. It is also interesting for those who want to use for short term rentals or luxury hotels.
