A giant castle with its own church and bell tower has gone on sale for £2.9 million, on an island in the central region of Umbria, Italy.
Despite the hefty price tag, the luxurious property with all its original feature and scenic land is less than the average price of a terrace in the heart of London.
The castle is proving to be an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for buyers and the perfect property for anyone who has ever dreamed of being the king of their own castle.
The stunning estate is located on Lake Trasimeno and features 11 acres of grounds. The castle itself overlooks the local village’s two harbours and the nearby coast of Passignano sul Trasimeno.
The property is a large 10-bedroom luxury escape set over two floors and around three courtyards, with planning permission to be converted into a hotel.
If it becomes a hotel its history could help to lure holidaymakers, as its historic estate was founded around the 14th century Church of St Francis, which later grew to include a monastery.
A spokesperson for LuxuryEstate.com, which has listed the property, said: “The castle is listed as a building of significant historical and artistic interest.
Its architectural features include windows with pointed arches, intricate cornices and beautiful roof terraces.
All of these elements reflect the architectural styles during the periods of construction and additions to the castle, emphasising the eclectic tastes of the time.”
