Large Prestigious Villa to Restore

Prestigious property for sale in a village near Castiglione del Lago.

The property, of approximately 850 sqm, was built in the early 1500s and was renovated between the 1960s and 1970s. It is set in approximately 1 hectare of land and has two annexes measuring a total of approximately 250 sqm.

The building, which is spread over four floors, features frescoed walls and ceilings as well as vaulted ceilings. It requires modernisation and restoration works including the systems.

From what has now been reported, it can be assumed that in ancient times, both the ground floor and the first floor used to be lived in by the Lords of the building, while the second floor was undoubtedly intended for the service personnel.

The period structure is suitable both as a private residence but has great potential to be transformed into an accommodation facility with the possibility of also adding a swimming pool of approximately 40 sqm in the garden. Part of the land belonging to the house is buildable for any extensions or additional constructions.

The proximity to the major places of interest in Tuscany and Umbria makes an ideal property for those wishing to visit villages such as; Città della Pieve with its beautiful historical centre; Castiglione del Lago with the fascinating fortress and point of departure to visit the lake islands;  Cortona and its romantic historical centre; Chiusi and Sarteano with their Etruscan sites; and Montepulciano, land of the famous and excellent Vino Nobile. Gioiella is also located a short distance from Perugia and Siena, two of the most characteristic cities of Umbria and Tuscany.

since the 19th century, the building has belonged to the same family for generations. Ascanio della Corgna dedicated himself to the establishment of the Castiglionese property, designed by Vignola and then by Galeazzo Alessi, with whom the marquis collaborated.

The private and well kept chapel included in the sale of this property is something unique and rather special.
