An incredible castle located in Piedmont, a short distance from Alba and the Barolo wine area – just 20 minutes.
The floor space is around 2,500 sqm (27,000 sqft) with 80,000 sqm of land (19 acres).
The price is €2,5m but!!! The owner is well open to offers. We have reports and estimates for work and it can all be bought and done for around €3m to make it extraordinary with a gym, spa, swimming pool, and guest rooms….
The view from the towers are spectacular. Perfect views of the arch of the Alps including the mountains – Monviso, Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa. There’s also a view onto most of the world-famous wine area of Barolo wine, which now has the most expensive real estate in the world.
The large garden around the castle is walled in and secure. A pool could be added and there’s ample space for large parties, weddings and other events.
The original building on the land, a fortress, dates back to the 13th century. During the 14th and 19th centuries, it was home to the noble family of the Colonna, originating in Rome. A feud within the Catholic Church brought them to Piedmont. The property is now in the hands of a famous Italian illustrator, writer and animation film director from Torino. It has been in his family for 3 generations.
The castle has massive potential and could also be considered only as an investment. Castles in the area have been recently bought by large companies and put on hold. The potential for tourism, or as an impressive private home, is also a legitimate idea. We have a team on hand to help with any restorations and redesign.
The property is in excellent condition. Any damage on walls or ceilings was caused by leaking gutters. These have now been repaired but ideally need replacing – the roof is fine.
The interior needs cleaning, painting and some restoration. There are local people who can help with upkeep and we can recommend people to oversee and carry out any works.
The land is woodlands, and fields and can be used again for vineyards and hazelnuts.
This is an incredible opportunity and one that will not be around for very long. The property market in Piedmont has exploded so prices are sure to rise.
Property tax is less than €400/year.
