We offer for sale the charming "Castello Respiro" in Gornate Olona, in the immediate vicinity of the center of Varese, in an extremely private and quiet position surrounded by a wonderful park of 30,000 square meters.
The property is located in an archaeological area, declared on 26 June 2011 a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The castle was built in the twelfth century as a military outpost to protect the Valle Olona and the Contado del Seprio and subsequently abandoned after the destruction of Castelseprio by the Visconti of Milan (a.d. 1287). The castle, lost its military vocation, was then used as a residence and expanded over the centuries. Abandoned during World War II, it was recovered and restored by the current owner family. At the Castle you can breathe a historic atmosphere and its wonderful park full of ancient trees, designed by a famous landscape architect, offers an extraordinary glance.
The property is spread over a total internal area of 2,200 square meters on two floors above ground, currently intended for exclusive luxury accommodation with four suites and private residence. Inside, it houses splendid and sumptuous halls with ceilings and walls richly adorned with precious exposed wooden beams that embellish the large halls. In addition there is a large kitchen and three sumptuous dining rooms that overlook the wonderful outdoor park and pool. The two towers characterize the structure making it unique.
