Description
This beautiful property for sale dominates a small valley between Todi and the town of Bastardo in Umbria. First mentioned in literature in 1295, the castle grew up around an observation tower built to control a strategically important road between the two Umbrian rivals of Perugia and Todi in central Italy. Successive restructuring and additions to the castle throughout the intervening centuries grew the structure to include further observation towers and protective outer walls.
 
The property has recently been restored under the close supervision of the commission for fine arts and the ministry of cultural heritage, ensuring that the castle’s structure and stonework are as close as possible to the original but with the addition of more modern comforts such as an underfloor heating system covering most of the 15 rooms. The external work has been completed and a portion of the castle, including 2 bedrooms has also been internally restored and is fully habitable. Further areas of the property remain to be finished internally, as can be seen from the images on the website and the original tower structure has been consolidated but is still to be restored.  A portion of the adjoining house forms a small dependance and also requires internal restructuring. The recent restructuring work and, in particular, the heating system would make this a very comfortable dream home with a bit of work still to be done. A prime piece of realty.
