Valdengo Castle is located 20 minutes from the Carisio tollbooth on the A4 motorway. It is one hour from Milan, Turin and Malpensa international airport and two hours from France and Switzerland. The area lends itself to being appreciated by sports lovers, thanks to the many possibilities that the area offers (about 30 minutes away is the golf course of Magnano Biellese, the Betulle, among the most beautiful in Italy, the Rosazza tennis clubs and the Beech Trees of Biella, the Biellese Alps for skiing, but also the renowned ski areas of the Aosta Valley, Lake Viverone for water skiing and wakeboarding, as well as walks to the Burcina or the Zegna oasis, cycling and mtb at the Serra and surroundings). Even food and wine lovers will be able to try the local wines and the many local specialities.The subject of sale is the main part of the Castle, which stands on a gentle hill from which you can enjoy a 360 degree view, from the Biellese Alps to Monviso, from the Baraggia to the hills and plains of Novara and the village of Valdengo in the foreground.The portion, whose first layout dates back to the Middle Ages, is located in a well-restored village.Currently the property is only partially inhabited on the ground floor. The remaining part, whose frescoed ceilings have remained unchanged over the centuries, is dedicated to rooms and halls with fireplaces and furnishings that enhance its historical nature.In the inhabited part there is the oldest fireplace which frames an elegant room, the floor is completed by a living room, a dining room, with direct access to the large terrace of 360 m2 and the kitchen.The monumental staircase leads to the first floor entirely dedicated to the bedrooms. Also in this floor the architectural elements are of great value. In fact, some rooms have frescoed ceilings and perfectly preserved parquet floors. Furthermore, all the rooms facing the south-west side have French windows onto a long balcony that outlines the entire floor.The second floor, with a reduced floor plan and access to the turret from a comfortable staircase, housed some bedrooms and bathrooms.Overall, the property needs an integral intervention. In fact, although some environments preserve the historical beauty and the traces of the noble origins, the systems, the fixtures and the bathrooms must be modernized. The roof and some floors need to be completely redone.
