We offer for sale in Castelletto sopra Ticino, in the setting of the Ticino Park, an early 20th century farmhouse surrounded by a large park and with a private dock directly on the river.
The property, unique in its kind, is surrounded by a large park of over 13,000 square metres adorned with century-old trees that guarantees the property unparalleled privacy, silence and confidentiality.
The farmhouse, the heart of the property, in original stone, with exposed bricks, wide walls and with its striking tower, has a particular view of the river and consists of two bodies connected by a portico. The main body, as well as the central one, is spread over two levels within which the rooms are distributed as follows: the ground floor of the farmhouse houses a large living room, a sitting area, a tavern that lends itself well to the creation of a bedroom and a large kitchen that overlooks both sides of the main structure; the first floor, on the other hand, consists of two double bedrooms, two single bedrooms and a bathroom inserted in a turret.
The secondary body, currently unused, is in need of careful renovation, from which it will be possible to create a complete dwelling consisting of two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and common areas with a romantic view of the river; this second body lends itself perfectly to the creation of a caretaker’s house or a separate guest area a few steps away from the main body.
The property, within the vast park, is currently accessible via two driveways, one on the common road and one through the park, while there are five pedestrian entrances; however, it will be possible to expand these according to future plans.
The property retains many original features from the period of construction such as high ceilings, many windows, a large outdoor balcony and also natural materials of the time such as stone, terracotta, wood and ceramics. The property is sold in its current state, with original fixtures and fittings; some period furnishings will also be on sale on request; the main body is in need of renovation.
Privacy is undoubtedly the jewel in this property’s crown: despite the strategic location, it remains very convenient for business trips or close to strategic points only 10 km from Arona, 35 minutes from Malpensa airport and only 50 minutes from Milan. The property is surrounded by an oasis of tranquillity and privacy thanks to the vast park that makes this location unique; in the park it will be possible to realise, according to the new buyer’s taste, a sports area, a tennis court, a horse estate, parking spaces or even a football pitch.
