Exploit the Potential of this ancient Manor
Offered at € 390 000
This property has an exciting and ancient history that dates back to the year 1000. The «Castellaccio» - meaning «The ugly Castle» - rises on top of a hill, above the town of Vogognano, from which it dominates the entire valley of the Tuscan hills, the river Arno running right through the valley below. Vogognano lies some 20 km. from the famous town of Arezzo.
The property needs to be restored, which opens for a vast number of options and opportunities, as Italian Authorities only require that the facade be kept as it is. Thus the interiors can be remodelled according to an overall master plan for the development of this unique estate. As is customary, we at paradiseintuscany can assist you in finding the right architects and craftsmen to realize the restoration according to your desires.
The “Castellaccio” was the ancient residence of the noble family Ubertini di Valenzano, belonging to Ubertino di Gualfreduccio until the year 1221. It is built on the ruins of an even more ancient Castle which dates back to the year one thousand. The present Manor, however, dates back to the 1700s.
