Historic medieval castle for sale in Tuscany
Located near to Bucine this beautiful 12th-century medieval castle property is in a panoramic position on top of a hill in the heart of a medieval Tuscan hamlet.
The castle (800 sqm – 8,608 sqft) is located in the centre of the medieval hamlet and makes up one of the four sides of the main square. On the inside (and a small annexe 50 m away) are 9 luxury one-bed mini-apartments with en-suite bathrooms.
The property is then completed by three independent apartments (for a grand total of 150 sqm – 1,614 sqft) located in the surrounding hamlet, a gym with dressing room (70 sqm – 753 sqft), a car garage (20 sqm – 215 sqft) and some storage rooms.
In 1997 the property was restored and renovated into its present form as a luxury accommodation business.
The castle boasts beautiful stone and masonry walls on the outside, with beautiful Florentine mullioned windows and perfectly maintained Guelph crenellation and brackets. On the left side of the building is a beautiful arched loggia leading to the Italian garden, embellished by terracotta and stone statues.
On the inside are beautiful ancient terracotta floors, exposed stone walls interrupted by plastered sections, partially covered in frescoes and decorations. The only exceptions to the terracotta are the internal steps of the building which are made out of bright stone. Other beautiful features include the wooden beams supporting the roofs and the perfectly preserved decorated fireplaces.
Windows are ample, some of which are enriched by antique stained glass,
The castle has an Italian garden on the left side, accessed both through the building and via a metal gate from the road. A short distance from the castle, descending towards the base of the hill on the other side of the hamlet, split on various terraces, we can find the beautiful 4,000 sqm park with the 14 x 6 m panoramic pool. Last but not least, the property has a 1.5 ha 160-trees olive grove in perfect condition.
