Umbria, Perugia, Perugia, Italy
Of ancient origin, probably dating from the first half of XIX century, the villa was sold at the end of the nineteenth century to one of the most powerful families in the area that transformed what was then a beautiful building in a prestigious villa with robes of Neo-Gothic castle, with overt references to typically English architecture.
Characteristic battlements with dovetail corbels crown the villa and a high octagonal tower dominate the structure.
This villa in Umbria for sale is spread over four levels including a basement: in the latter it is accessed from both the ground floor and the garden, this part of the villa was designed for greenhouses, basements, sheds and warehouses.
The main entrance on the ground floor still has the original main door in a perfect state of preservation framed by a square stone portico decorated with family coats of arms and stucco painted.
If the outside of this castle for sale in Italy is already so special and distinctive, the interior is just as good. Among the many details of prestige and great value, it is worth noting the Tapestry room with bay window decorated internally, the red room, one study room where the cooker hood is painted with coats of arms, a living room with coffered ceiling and bow windows.
All the rooms of this wonderful luxury castle are still decorated with original frescoes and stucco.
The main staircase leading to the first floor is made of marble steps and develops within the tower building.
Here we also find a library with a small bow-window, frescoed ceilings and stucco.
A characteristic octagonal terrace, positioned at the top of the tower with battlements, allows a breathtaking view of 360° of the entire surrounding countryside and the city.
A beautiful park of 6 hectares surrounds the Italian luxury villa for sale; fenced with two main entrances with gates at the centre of a wall in travertine and brick pedestrian and two side gates at the sides, is crossed by a wide avenue lined with pine trees and is characterized by green areas designed by flower beds and wooded areas with tall trees.
