Full description:

Originally constructed in the Late Middle Ages, this castle lies in the heart of the "Crete" Hills of Siena.

Virtually untouched by time, where art, history and landscape blend in, a rare example of natural beauty.

This 12th Century castle has superb arches and venerable crests, presently showing the wear and tear of time, but their incredible impact are still enthralling.

The basic layout of what amounts to a full-fledged architectural complex was subject to major restructuring and expansion efforts during the 15th and 16th Centuries, at the initiative of the leading aristocratic families of the area.

The property has a roofed surface area of approximately 1,140m2 and is surrounded on all sides by arable land totalling 24.5 acres.

Amidst its valleys and streams, the estate also holds a lookout tower from the Late Middle Ages and a 16th Century chapel, both testifying to a distant, majestic past.

Additional assets on the property including outbuildings used for storage, a hog barn, multifamily farmhouse and a stone shed.

Major restructuring is necessary for use as a residence and/or home.
