Description

In a dominant and panoramic position, stands this prestigious building complex, consisting of three imposing buildings: the castle, the private residence, and the former factory, surrounded by about 8 hectares of park and wood, whose view gets lost in the horizon on the picturesque hills of Monferrato. Solonghello Castle stands on the top of the hill with its fortress whose construction, begun in the 12th century, is enlarged and strengthened to become a mighty castle. Owned by the Marquises of Monferrato, many illustrious nobles alternate in its possession. The castle, whose massive construction with a typically medieval character, has never lost the defensive characteristics of its structure. In the 18th century, it was transformed into a country residence, with the addition of an elegant slightly arched facade, reflecting the taste of the time, and an oval-shaped atrium topped by a richly decorated vault. The current owners have entrusted the restoration and the structural consolidation to the architect Gritella, famous for the interventions made to the hunting lodge of Stupinigi and to the Mole Antonelliana in Turin. Currently, the castle is in need of renovation and interior finishing: it is ideally perfect for an exclusive accommodation business that can involve the entire property. The complex, perched on the hill, appears to be well related to the surrounding natural context and even the most recent building interventions carried out have been carried out through the restoration and recovery of the existing building, with the utmost respect for the characterizing natural environment. The private residence is an elegantly restored farmhouse with fine finishes and attention to detail: the exterior of the house is characterized by the presence of a large terrace paved in red porphyry, surrounded by olive trees that forms a large lookout over the well-known hills. of the lower Monferrato. The property is spread over three levels and consists of a kitchen, a study, a cellar, five bedrooms, and three bathrooms on the first floor, while the second floor is an open attic space characterized by exposed beams. The former factory, used as a productive activity, was until two years ago the nerve center of one of the most important companies, world leader in the luxury sector, and is still in excellent condition today. The top floor consists of a wonderful covered panoramic terrace, from which it is possible to admire the beauty of the surrounding landscape. A special feature of the top is the presence of a professional kitchen and a fountain with spectacular water features. The load-bearing structure of the roof is made of exposed wood and brushed metal: on the pitches of the roof there are two systems of photovoltaic panels. Access from the ground floor to the first floor and the basement can also be done by means of an elevator. The production area outside is surrounded by large green spaces; the choice of locating the production phases in the basement has made it possible not to distort the surrounding natural landscape, but rather to enhance it. The terraces created by the burial of the new building are completely hidden by the vegetation. The property is located 1 hour from the main cities of Turin, Milan, and Genoa.
