Villa Coppedé neo-medieval castle, Bucine, Arezzo - Tuscany

Enchanting villa built in neo-medieval style with a tower and panoramic terraces for sale exclusively with Apolloni & Blom in Bucine, Arezzo. Inside a 118-acre estate, in the heart of Tuscany stands the high tower of Villa Frisoni in Lupinari, an excellent example of rural architecture created at the beginning of the last century by the famous architect Gino Coppedè. The building is a suggestive castle located in a panoramic position, which has a compact central body and an imposing tower, both decorated with a dynamic battlement. The exposed stone wall surfaces are adorned with narrow mullioned windows in Romanesque and neo-Gothic style, inspired by the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena and Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. The external walls of the castle recall Sienese architecture, being decorated with an effective combination of light and red colors, both in the stone and brick parts. The plastered parts are frescoed with geometric motifs. The Villa is spread over five floors, all equally characterized by refined architectural details and decorations of great value. The basement contains service rooms. The mezzanine floor is accessed via an external stone staircase through a loggia with round arches supported by sturdy pillars. Here, three French windows with decorated glass lead to a reception room with a painted wooden ceiling and a stone fireplace. A double wooden staircase with elaborate railing leads to the upper floors, featuring bedrooms with frescoed ceilings and heraldic coats of arms. The loggias and terraces, facing south, allow the inhabitants to enjoy the beauty of Valdambra and the Tuscan countryside during the summer months. A park with tall trees and Mediterranean plants surrounds the villa. Outbuildings to be recovered and deposits are included. This castle is an extraordinarily detailed work of architecture, demonstrating the high level of craftsmanship and creativity of a great artist, architect and sculptor, it offers excellent potential for a private home and luxury hospitality business.
