PRESTIGIOUS CASTLE FOR SALE IN MILAN
Property of an illustrious Lombardy family until the end of the 1800’s, this castle was for a long time the venue of many cultural events and conferences attended by personalities like Alessandro Volta, Antonio Scarpa and Lorenzo Mascheroni.
It was later bought by another eminent family in 1900, when it underwent a great work of restoration converting it to private abode. This is the status by which it is presented today, perfectly kept and preserved in all its detail.
The garden was redesigned and restored at the time: the architect who carried out this project worked on the basis of a 1737 design by Giovanni Antonio Veneroni.
The hill overlooking the Italian style garden is terraced. The result is outstanding: it is a marvel to the eye and the result is truly unique.
Unique as the castle, just a few kilometres from Milan.
Built on a U shape plan, this castle for sale has a total living surface of 6500 m2. Built with bare brick, the estate features a central body and two wings marked by two square towers overlooking a courtyard with a breath taking view.
A driveway of 3 kilometres crosses the private park of woods, fields and vineyards, arriving at the castle positioned on the top of a hill. The building is completely surrounded by green: there are in fact two gardens: one positioned on the south side and the other on the north side. The first has a typical Italian style layout with box hedges, lawns, lanes, lemon nurseries and statues of gods and nymphs. The second is an English style garden, with larch tree woods, oaks and chestnut trees.
In the inside, this prestigious castle for sale is a sight to the eyes. The main floor is rich in richly decorated halls, with frescos and finely furnished, refined drawing rooms and elegant dining rooms. A perfectly functional puppet theatre and a small internal chapel.

In addition to this prestigious castle for sale in Milan we find the stables with three antique carriages complete with all its trappings.
