A truly unique and, absolutely breath-taking property, your chance to own a “piece of history”.
Just like a trip to Rome, you can walk around it many times and still on each occasion see an interesting detail you missed before. Dating back to the 1400’s, this was a functioning mill until the 1950’s. Although the “river diversion” was filled in many years ago, one can still see, via a small door, the workings of the mill under the main tower, where the water would flow through and out the other side. The property sits on approx. 4,5 hectare of land, (with the possibility to purchase extra land if required). Comprising of the main tower, a beautiful enclosed courtyard, formed from what was originally a Chapel, but then used later as a cantina, dwellings, stalls for the animals, storage, and a tobacco tower, in the centre of the courtyard is a covered well.
Enter the tower via some stone steps and into a very unusual kitchen area, with an arched ceiling, curved walls, original cotto tiled floor and a HUGE fireplace, this leads to a dining area with a vaulted ceiling, then the most amazing room, a further dining area with a beautiful brick arched ceiling, there is a door to exit into the garden from here, just past a small arched storage area for wine. These first 3 rooms, are each unique in their own different way. Stone stairs lead to a large living room with beamed ceiling, a stuffa, it’s a large and light room with French doors leading out onto a large terrace overlooking the courtyard. After this one will find another large room with a tiled bathroom to the right, with Bidet, sink, WC and bath, here you can see in the walls the old vent’s used to heat the house, via the wood burning stuffa. On this level is a nice sized bedroom with beamed ceiling. Continue from the “landing hall” to an enormous double aspect bedroom, which leads to another double aspect room with beamed ceiling. On this level is another tiled bathroom consisting of sink, bidet, WC and bath, another double bedroom with large feature windows, flooding it with light. Stairs lead up to the attic space , the top of the tower, 2 very large open spaces divided by wall and a large central arch spanning across.
This tower is truly incredible, so many original features, it’s a delight. The whole space is light and gives a sense of space. This property offers so many opportunities, once the old courtyard is restored a hotel , spa complex, or an amazing family home.
A rare find, it needs to be seen to be believed……
