LARGE SIZE HISTORICAL BUILDING, WITH SURROUNDING GARDEN AND LARGE PANORAMIC TERRACE This property is located in the heart of Tuscia at 400m. away from the ancient village of Carbognano, an agricultural center adjacent to the Cimini Mountains, and is 5 minutes from Lake Vico, 22 km from Viterbo and 50 km from Rome. The ancestors of today's owners, who then resided in the well-known Castello di Carbognano (former residence of Giulia Farnese), bought it at the end of the 18th century to use it as a "hunting lodge" and only after hereditary subdivisions transformed it into a large house around 1850. The same building can ideally be inhabited by a single owner or it can be divided into several apartments, given the large size and the position of the almost central staircase. THE GROUND FLOOR: It dates back to 1600, almost all completely covered by cross vaulted ceilings. It consists of a large entrance hall, 2 rooms, a large kitchen with fireplace, an adjacent service room with toilet for the servants and an extra large bathroom with bathtub. A large warehouse at the rear of the building with very high ceilings can be used as a garage or transformed into a loft, studio. In the back of the garden there is a now disused vegetable garden with an old outdoor oven and plenty of parking space. Below the ground floor there is a large cellar dug into the tuff (which housed the wines produced in the past by the same family that were awarded at the 1900 Paris Universal Exposition). Almost all of the large windows on the ground floor are equipped with iron gratings. THE FIRST FLOOR: You go up to the first floor with a Carrara marble staircase. The right wing dates back to 1800, the left to 1600. It has its own private consecrated chapel (while the external church was donated by the family to the Vatican). On the left, a large study connected by 2 doors to a large living room that opens onto a huge panoramic terrace overlooking the open countryside and Mount Soratte at the bottom. On the right wing of the staircase, there is the sleeping area consisting of 3 large bedrooms, a service kitchen and a bathroom with tub. THE SECOND FLOOR: It consists of 2 large living rooms with fireplace, one of which is connected to the large tower overlooking the property, recently consolidated with 2 habitable floors, from which you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of the countryside, the town of Carbognano and the Castello Farnese. . There are 2 bedrooms, 1 large bathroom with tub and 1 kitchen. All the ceilings are very high, in some sections slightly sloping, all with exposed wooden beams.
