Property description

Medieval Defensive Castle with court, Montalcino, Siena – ToscanaAstonishing and unique 1300s castle, project approved for a conservative and luxury restyle, on sale near Montalcino, south of Siena. In an exceptional open panoramic position, nestled among hills of vineyards and oaks, the property boasts enchanting views of the Crete Senesi and the characteristic landscapes of the lands of Montalcino, at just 10 km. A private avenue bordered by two centuries-old cypress trees leads to the heart of the castle, an imposing brick structure reaching a height of up to 18 meters, dating back to 1300s, made of two separate blocks with a scarp base and other buildings developed around a inner courtyard housing an ancient round-shape well. Cannon openings on the top floor confirm its military nature of a defensive outpost during the long wars between Siena and Florence. After 1453 it became the country residence of a noble family of Counts who further expanded the structure, and added a graceful octagonal family chapel. After seven centuries of history, most of its architectural features have been perfectly preserved. The interiors features brick walls, arches, colonnades, and stunning ceilings some vaulted and some embellished with 17th-century frescoes. Renovation works are needed for residential and/or receptive purposes. A restoration project, aimed at the preservation of centuries of history, has already been approved in full respect of the landscape and architectural constraints. A project with excellent potential for the transformation of this medieval jewel into an elegant residence to live with family and friends, or to host travelers and memorable events.PROPERTY Ref: MON2330Type: 1300s castle on four levels above ground plus cellars in the basement, with a total area of 3900 sq m/41979 sq ft including outbuildings and a private church with an octagonal plan
