DESCRIPTION



12TH CENTURY CASTLE FOR SALE, SIENA, TUSCANY



In the Tuscan countryside, a short distance from Siena and the Tyrrhenian Sea, this imposing 12th-century fortress is an authentic piece of history. With a surface of 870 sqm, 7 bedrooms, impressive stone walls and perfectly preserved battlements, the castle dominates the surrounding valley with an unrivaled view.

If you are looking for a place to live in full quiet or a property to start a high-quality hosting business, this castle is a perfect choice. The estate covers a total surface of 99.6 hectares of land.

The location of the castle is convenient to reach all the most notable cities of Tuscany (Siena, Florence, Montalcino, Montepulciano...).



DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING



The castle (600 sqm – 6,456 sqft, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) is laid over four above-ground floors plus a basement

The ground floor is made up of a beautiful stone entrance hall and a spacious dining room. Right in the entrance hall we find the stairs leading up. Midway up the road, there’s a door on the left leading to a mezzanine floor, entirely occupied by an independent apartment made up of a living room, two communicating double (or twin) bedrooms and a shared bathroom accessed from the living room. Mounting the last section of the staircase leads to the first floor (piano nobile in Italian) of the fortress: here we enter a nice double-height ceremony hall leading in turn to 2 double (or twin) bedrooms (located one on the east and one on the western side of the building) both fitted with an en-suite bathroom.

Finally, mounting a last staircase, we land on the attic, usable either as a studio, or living room, dining room or bedroom based on the owner’s preferences. A door leads to the roof of the property.

Undeground, as many medieval castles, the fortress has a dungeon, once used as a prison but now reworked into a cellar and a storage room.

  FLOOR PLANS OF THE CASTLE

 

The castle is provided with a two-story annex (70 sqm – 753 sqft, 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom), leaned directly against the main building, once used as a stable but reworked into a dependance or guest house. The building is split between a day-zone (made up of an ample living room with kitchen) on the ground floor and night-zone with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

 

Descending one terrace, we can find a nice farmhouse (200 sqm – 2,152 sqft) currently in builder’s finish which could be used as a second dependance for an eventual hosting business. Next to the farmhouse, there is the beautiful church to be restored and dating back to the 12th century.



HISTORY, STATE AND FINISHES



The castle we see today was built at the end of the 12th century, in open violation to the 1158 AD order by Frederick I Barbarossa that forbade the construction of military buildings in the area of Siena. Over the years, several German emperors ordered multiple times the demolition of the fortress which was never actually torn down. When in 1208 the emperor Otto IV ordered the umpteenth demolition of the fortress, under the menace of a severe sanction, the fortress was ultimately demolished (partially or totally, that’s not clear). However, by 1251 the fortress is mentioned again in several documents, so the remaining of the walls on the outside, which appears to have being completing an elliptical structure, suggests that the fortress was like “cut” in half instead of being totally destroyed. After several military events, the building was first restored in 1475. It was only in 1554 that the fortress was finally conquered by the Florentine army after the fall of Siena. The partially ruined building was restored a second time at the end of the 18th century and a third and last time at the end of the 20th century.

 

The property is in good conditions and boasts on the outside the typical stone walls usually found on medieval fortresses, which have undergone several thickening works throughout the centuries to be able to resist to artillery shots in the early 15th century. The original battlements are perfectly maintained and protect and ancient patrol route on the ramparts. The façade boasts three beautiful lancet-arched windows.

On the inside, the building shows a neat contrast between exposed stone walls (mainly on the ground floor) and plastered walls (on the upper floors). The ceilings of the upper floors are supported by a beautiful system of wooden beams. On the ground floor, there are beautiful brick arches, an expedient to discharge the huge weight of the upper castle. Floors are covered in ancient terracotta blocks, perfectly maintained, while the staircase leading upwards starts with four stone steps, leaving then way to brick steps, probably added after one of the restoration. Every room of the castle has a private fireplace, once the only way to heat the locals, built both in bricks and stone.



EXTERIORS



The property is built on top of a hill, high on a series of fortified terraces along the slope. Just outside the main door, we can find a wooden pergola, perfect for al fresco dining and providing an unrivaled view over the surrounding countryside. In the garden are still visible the remaining walls of the ancient fortress, probably demolished between 1208 and 1235.

The roof of the castle, providing a wonderful view, is reached from the attic and is made up of a medieval patrolling path above the ramparts.

 

The land surrounding the castle spans roughly 99.6 hectares and is mainly covered in mixed coppice woodland (92.1 ha). The remaining surface is covered in chestnut grove (4.8 ha), olive grove (0.6 ha) and arable land, grazing land and unused land (2.1 ha).



USE AND POTENTIAL USES



The castle, thanks to a privileged location and exceptional quietness, is perfect as a private residence if what you are looking for is a retired life in the green of Tuscany. Alternatively, thanks to the size and the presence of several bedrooms on multiple floors granting a high level of privacy, the castle can be used as a base for a high-level hosting business.

The term Castle derives from castellum which, in turn, derives from Castrum, a Latin term that refers to a military settlement. It is, in fact, in Roman times that we find the first elements of castles, architectural structures that become even more important with the advent of the barbarians. These peoples, nomads and mostly devoted to hunting and war, were also particularly ferocious and it was therefore required to fortify the already existing military facilities.

 
With the fall of the Roman Empire and the advent of the Middle Ages the decentralization of power required the creation of different types of fortification. At the beginning the scene was dominated by the watch towers whose purpose was primarily military.
 
The different economic and social structure, typical of the Middle Ages, then, required the creation of fortified towns. The castle became, therefore, the nucleus of a decentralized economy that, from the city, now moved to the countryside. That’s why the castle appeared as real fortified village.

In modern times, with the advent of various forms of fortification, the castle lost its defensive role. The various castles began, therefore, to be converted into residences for noble families.
Currently many of the castles in Italy and Europe are in need of renovation and therefore represent an unique opportunity to give a new life to a piece of history.
 
Owning a castle, live in a castle and, even more, to revive a castle is surely one of the most exciting experiences of life.
