Nestled in the heart of an ancient village and overlooking the picturesque Lake Canterno, lies this magnificent 450 square meter palazzo, rich with history and elegance. Built by the noble Franchi family, this palazzo boasts four levels of charming and well-maintained living space, each with its own unique character and breathtaking views.

As you enter the grand entrance of this palazzo, you are greeted by a magnificent stone staircase, surrounded by columns and surrounded by two large rooms that have been converted into a kitchen and dining room. Take a step back in time as you ascend to the first floor, where you will find the original and beautifully frescoed reception hall, two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a study. On the left side, a small corridor leads to the second bathroom and the third bedroom.

Going back down to the ground floor, you will discover two levels below the street, each with its own character and charm. These levels feature original terracotta floors and exposed wooden beams, and are not underground but above ground with regular windows. The first level houses a large cellar and an ancient well that once provided water to the building. The second level features two more cellars, as well as a hallway carved into the rock.

In terms of structure, the palazzo is in excellent condition, made of ancient stone, and features reinforced floors. The roof is in excellent condition, as is the top floor, while the ground and first floors need some updates to their electrical and plumbing systems. The heating system can be customized to your liking.

For those interested in even more space, the adjacent building of 1500 square meters with a roof garden is also available for purchase, allowing you to reunite the original structure for a total of approximately 2000 square meters of living space.
