Situated in a hilly position, surrounded by the green countryside, close to Bibbiena (5 km), there is Casale Paladino, only 30 minutes from Arezzo, halfway between Cortona (65 km) and Florence (69 km).
The property sits in Casentino, at the border with Emilia Romagna, close to highway A1 to Rome and motorway E45 to Cesena.
Description of buildings
The property is composed of a 639 sqm countryhouse and of 7 hectares of land, complemented by an adjoining portion divided into two further apartments (one of which is to be completed).
The manor house develops over three floors, covering a total surface of 639 sqm.
Open spaces, overlooking the courtyard and the valley, give access to the living area which covers the whole first floor.
The sitting-room is composed of two rooms connected by a large window which frames the beautiful stone fireplace, in addition to a further sitting-room which completes the living-room.
The dining-room and the kitchen with storeroom are connected to the sitting-room. A studio, a bathroom and a passage to upstairs complete the ground floor.
The first and the second floor host the sleeping area with 13 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, in addition to further rooms.
Near the manor house, detached from the private land, there is a portion of a building which the owners of Casale Paladino bought and which hosts two separate apartments for guests.
The first apartment, to builder’s finish and to be refined, has a surface of 142 sqm and is composed of a huge sitting-room, a kitchen with dining-area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The second apartment has a surface of 106 sqm featuring a large living-room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The property, finished in 1999, has been carefully restored paying a great attention to the original features.
The outside walls maintain the typical exposed stone structure with stone-arched windows and sandstone window ledges.
The interior features open spaces and is characterized by cotto floors and ceilings with wooden beams and cotto tiles.
The accurate attention paid to the systems, which comply with current regulations, makes the property suitable as a receptive structure as well.
A driveway gives access to the entrance through the lawn leading to the 12x6 swimming-pool, overlooking a breathtaking panorama.
The property is surrounded by 7 hectares of land.
Usage and potential
Casale Paladino is the right property for who loves hosting guests or adding a receptive structure to the private dwelling. Casale Paladino, currently working as a Relais, is already suitable to function as a small hotel in the charming Tuscany.
