UMBRIA CASTLE WITH TOWER FOR SALE

Dettagli immobile
Dettagli immobile

In a beautiful panoramic position in the municipality of Foligno, in the heart of Umbria, we find this beautiful medieval castle. The property, spanning over 500 sqm, currently offers a total of 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. A beautiful garden enclosed by the original walls is ideal for events and weddings and also features a finely restored private chapel. All around, 4.0 hectares of land complete the property.


HISTORY OF THE FORTRESS

The first records about the tower date back to the second half of the 13th century: this place, where probably a fortified community was already thriving, is mentioned in the Cronaca di Perugia: on May 19, 1289, a battalion of Perugine troops attacked several keeps around Foligno and this tower was no exception.

The castle itself was built in the first half of the 14th century on top of the hill, probably on the remains of the old tower. The location allowed easy control of the underlying valley.

Originally shaped like a horse-shoe, the fortress followed the profile of the hill. Only portions of the imposing wall are still intact, and this despite them being reinforced several times since the 16thcentury.

 


DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING

Arriving by car, one can park just behind the tower and enter the courtyard via a breach in the walls. Here, the main walkway leads on to the church, the praesidium and the terrace granting access to the tower.

 

The private chapel, thanks to a masterful restoration, still boasts its original charme. By scraping off non-original plasters the beautiful vaulted ceilings have been brought back to light, as well as a portion of a 14th-century painting of the crucifixion, currently being restored.

 

The praesidium is laid over two floors, each with independent access. The ground floor houses bedroom N°1, accessed directly from the garden, and a bathroom tiled its 18th-century original majolica. On the first floor there is a live-in kitchen with dining area, featuring original terracotta floors and decorated with original copper and ceramic tools, and a bathroom.

Exiting the kitchen one ends up on the paved terrace, embellished by terracotta jars and equipped with tables and chairs to enjoy the pleasant summer climate of Umbria.

From here, a wooden staircase leads to the entrance of the tower, which is through a very small door which was originally intended to keep assailants outside the building. The entrance floor features bedroom N°2, decorated with original 19th-century furniture and equipped with private bathroom. The ceiling is supported by beautifully decorated wooden beams.

Going further up, we come across bedroom N°3, fitted with private bathroom too and furnished with original 18th-century antiques.

On the upper floor, bedroom N°4 is a beautiful room covered with a nice vaulted ceiling and fitted with private bathroom. An original fireplace embellishes the room.

The second-to-last floor was instead rearranged into a beautiful living room shared by the guests of the tower.

Getting finally to the top, bedroom N°5 is the smallest of the lot, but also the most peculiar. The room was indeed created inside the guardhouse on top of the tower, where sentinels could find shelter in case of rain or bad weather. A door leads onto the crenellated chemin de ronde offering a unique view over the surrounding Umbrian countryside.

Back on the ground floor, a staircase also leads down towards the basement of the tower where an ample room has been converted into a laundry facility.

All the bedrooms are equipped with an autonomous heating/cooling system so that each guest can set the temperature based on his/her preference. Showers are comfortable and water is granted via a pressurization system.


 

STATE AND FINISHES

The conservative restoration of the property gave new life to this fortress and allowed preserving the tower, the chapel and good part of the walls. Along the ramparts one can easily see the remains of what were in the past boutiques and artisan warehouses. It has also been proposed a project to potentially recover these ruins and create further 570 sqm of livable surface.


 

EXTERIORS

The property is completed by a surrounding piece of land spanning roughly 4.0 hectares and featuring 470 olive trees. The garden in front of the tower, well-maintained and crossed by paved walkways, houses a 8,5 × 4,5 m above-ground swimming pool. This beautiful outdoor space, which also features a state-of-the-art lighting system, makes the property the perfect frame for weddings and events.
