20th Century Castle for conversion

18th April 2008 Print
20th Century Castle for conversion Garda Homes are delighted to bring Valeggio Castle to the market. This unique property built in the 20th Century from the ruins of the ‘Old Castle Valeggio’, dating back hundreds of years and with many original features still intact, now offers one discerning investor the opportunity to restore to its former glory as a private residence or perhaps the opportunity of converting it into a small hotel or spa resort.

Located just 10 minutes from the shores of Lake Garda in Valeggio sul Mincio, Valeggio Castle is set in an elevated position offering spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside. Boasting numerous reception rooms and bedrooms, totalling some 700sqm, it stands in park like grounds within the original ‘Old Castle Valeggio’ boundaries, which still draws tourists to its one remaining but imposing tower. It also offers two additional properties which would be ideally suited for a caretaker / servants quarters or could be converted to guesthouses or restaurants.

Sarah Ferrara, Managing Director of Garda Homes says, “This is a tremendous opportunity for one investor, particularly with the castle’s imposing location and its close proximity to Lake Garda. Undoubtedly, restoration work is needed throughout, but remember, as castles go this one was restored in the 20th Century and structurally it is in very good condition. With three main airports servicing the Lake Garda region from a wide choice of UK airports and the constant tourist ‘footfall’ throughout the year visiting the Lakes, Castle Valeggio could easily be turned into a profitable business.”

Valeggio Castle comes to the market through Garda Homes, priced at £3.5 million.

Garda Homes have a range of hundreds of Lake Garda properties through dozens of qualified local agents to suit all budgets and desires with prices starting from just £65,000 and rising up to £7 million, with new properties being added daily.
