Christie's International Real Estate - Rome Exclusive offers for sale a medieval castle located in a dominant position in Vacone (Rieti). Despite its proximity to the city of Rome, less than an hour away by car, the castle is located in a bucolic and uncontaminated area,
The Castle consists of two buildings, a courtyard-belvedere and a garden. The area is located on the top of the historic center of Vacone, is surrounded by a wall, and has two entrances: the main one from the Town Hall Square, and another one behind it.
The main building consists of two floors above ground, with large halls and staterooms with frescoes and high coffered ceilings, and a basement (former cellars), covered by a barrel vaulted ceiling, which was used for many years as a restaurant. The floors are mostly in period terracotta.
The second service building is divided from the main one by an internal courtyard and is spread over three floors. The north end features a watchtower.
The garden is occupied for about half of its surface by the exceptional foliage of a centuries-old holm oak.
