“Il Terrazzo del Castello” is one of those few properties that allow to live within the walls of a fifteenth-century castle, creating a medieval atmosphere with its stone building, the tower, the arches, the entrance staircase, the terraces. These elements from the past surround the property and make it charming and evocative.
The property for sale is a portion of the castle that needs to be restored. It consists of a stone townhouse of about 350sqm on four levels plus a completely paved terraced garden of about 45sqm located in front of the house, where we have an outdoor kitchen/dining area with pergola covered with an antique grapevine.
The townhouse is composed as follows: at ground floor we have entrance, hallway, kitchen, dining room and sitting room; on the first floor we find three bedrooms, bathroom and hallway; on the upper level, a mezzanine floor, we have two large attics, partly recoverable, of about 70sqm, that could be turned into other bedrooms or a small apartment; in the basement we find three rooms used as cellar and storage with the antique well/tank, that could be turned into a characteristic tavern.
Thanks to an extremely favourable South-west exposure, the property is very bright and enjoys panoramic views of the historical centre and the Umbrian and Tuscan countryside. The owner is working on removing the furniture present in the pictures.
Thanks to its charm, due to the location within a castle and the evocative medieval elements, and its central position close to the amenities and the main communication routes, this property would be perfect as both private residence and touristic facility. In fact, within short distance it is possible to reach many important Umbrian and Tuscan touristic destinations.
Great Estate Group, through the owner’s specialist, draws up a due diligence on each property, which allows to perfectly know the urbanistic and cadastral situation of every property. The due diligence can be required in case of real interest in the property.
The property is owned by private individuals and the purchase will be taxed according to the current laws.
The property is provided with the necessary utilities (electricity, water, gas), but all the implants need renewal. The heating system consisted of convectors and wood burning fireplaces.
The property needs to be restored. The roof was renewed during the 70’s with cement beams and needs some improvement works. There are wooden beams for the ceilings, original wooden windows (it would be interesting to recover them and install double glazes) and cotto, parquet and grit pavements. The owner is working on removing the furniture and the wallpaper. The basement floor could be partially turned into a tavern, while the attics could be turned into other living units.
The property is set within the medieval castle of Fabro, which dates back to 1400. The town is located between Umbria and Tuscany, 1km away from the A1 motorway exit of Fabro. Both Rome and Florence, as well as their airports, are about 1 hour and a half away from the property. Within short distance it is possible to reach many important Umbrian and Tuscan touristic centres, such as for example Orvieto, Arezzo, Città della Pieve, Cetona, San Casciano dei Bagni and the splendid countryside of the Mount Rufeno and the Val D’Orcia.
