Casale del Longobardo is a charming property that could have its origins as far back as the Lombard occupation. It is believed that the front of the farmhouse was an old Lombard watchtower from where you can still enjoy beautiful views of the valley and surrounding hills.
The property consists of 3 buildings: the farmhouse, a large barn and a smaller outbuilding.
The farmhouse is arranged over 3 floors of approx. 310 sq m as follows:
- Ground floor: various storage rooms and former stables
- First floor: entrance hall, large kitchen with large stone fireplace and magnificent original wooden beams, bathroom, dining room and 3 bedrooms.
- Second floor: two large attic rooms
In the grounds, not far from the farmhouse, are the 2 outbuildings. The barn has two floors and is 120 sq m. in size with some striking original stone features. The second structure is located on the opposite side of the farmhouse and is 110 sq m and on one level. It originally consisted of animal stalls but its volume could be used to create other habitable space such as a study, gym, summer kitchen or games room.
94,000 m2 of land are included in the sale, with 3 hectares of arable land and the rest being mostly woodland.
Casale del Longobardo is a complete renovation project that will provide the new owners an extraordinary opportunity to create a unique home whilst bringing a piece of local history back to life.
Itcasa can assist in all phases of project management for the renovation project if required.
