Just 1 km from the center of Toano, in a historic village and in a beautiful panoramic position overlooking the Dolo river valley, lies this ancient courtyard property. Dating back to the 16th and 17th century (with part dating back even earlier) and of great historical and architectural value this superb property comprises of six buildings in total, all set around a central courtyard area. The principal building is a large 8 bedroom main house, while surrounding it are two former stables / barns, two farmers/servant houses and a large storage building, all of which retain the original structural elements of stone walls with squared corners, lower floors mostly paved with antique stone slabs and upper floors mainly laid and floored with hand cut chestnut planking – all done with exquisite traditional workmanship.
In the main, all of the buildings are in a very good condition and have been maintained to the best standards. The main house especially is in an excellent condition both structurally and internally and is ready, as is, for immediate living in. Of note is that internal and wherever possible, all the historic and antique characteristic architectural elements have been retained and nurtured (in particular there is an old seventeenth-century stone fireplace of fantastic quality, whilst the upper floor boasts a magnificent landing area/gallery of fabulous quality and condition. However, modern comforts, such a central heating, double glazing, modern plumbing and electrics have not been missed out and are to be found throughout the main house.
Externally, the property comes with a generous amount of land of 3,300 sq.mtrs (just under an acre), all private and fenced, mostly laid to mature garden, but all of which requires a fair degree of maintenance as it has been left unattended for a long period of time.
A fabulous property, exceptional and a superb architectural and historical example of a classical medieval courtyard “palazzo”
