Both the main building of the Palazzo, which dates back to the 17th century, and the outbuilding have recently been renovated and are in excellent condition.
Inside the building, the original architectural features have been maintained: on the ground floor, the vaulted ceilings, terracotta floors and large kitchen fireplace remind us of the original intended use of those rooms, which served the main floor. Here, on the main floor, in addition to large rooms with decorations and frescoes on the vaulted ceilings and on the walls, there is also a beautiful wooden floor.
The private chapel is also adorned with decorations and faux marble.
Despite the fact that the other areas of the building and the outbuilding have not maintained their original finishes, they have nevertheless been renovated and are perfectly habitable.
Palazzo della Torre has numerous outdoor spaces, from the 3,500 sqm of private park, kept as a garden, and the terraces, the largest measures 280 sqm and is on the top floor of the building, while the most evocative is on the top of one of the town’s towers, overlooking the entire valley.
Usage and potential
The property is located in one of Umbria’s major cities of art and is in a central position with respect to important historic towns in Central Italy. This, along with the size of its buildings, makes it perfect as a private representative residence, both as a permanent dwelling or as a holiday home. It would also be possible to use the outhouse for guests and the partly renovated building for service staff. Alternatively it could be utilized as a source of income, by renting it out during periods of non-use or combining it with a small tourist accommodation business.
