Christie’s International Real Estate - Rome Exclusive - is pleased to offer for sale the Palazzo Viscontini in Acquapendente (VT), an ancient noble residence with private park, located along the ancient Via Francigena. The property, on the border with Tuscany and Umbria, is a few kilometers from Lake Bolsena and is about a two-hour drive from Fiumicino, Rome and Florence. The sixteenth-century building, of approximately 3,700 internal square meters, is in a unique position because it is in the city center but, at the same time, immersed in privacy.

The main entrance is on an access road to the historic center of Acquapendente and the property develops, internally, with a U-shaped plan, embracing the garden of over 2,000 square meters, embellished with centuries-old trees.

At street level, the property includes some shops, warehouses, a garage and, centrally positioned on the recently restored facade, the ancient entrance door.

Once you enter, you are greeted by a large internal courtyard with a loggia which takes the guest to the rooms on the ground floor, where there are two large halls, passage rooms and corridors.

From the internal courtyard you go up to the noble floor and to the magnificent garden.

The main floor of 1500 square meters has its heart in the large central hall with high ceilings and frescoed walls (by the Tuscan painter Gualtiero de Bacci Venuti). On the main floor there are other halls and rooms with important frescoed vaults from the Zuccari school, many overlooking the internal garden. Over the centuries, the palace has hosted important personalities, including foreign ones: kings, popes and artists.

On the second floor there are the servants’ quarters and the attics which present architectural elements typical of the period of construction. An ancient brick spiral staircase leads to the turret from which you can enjoy a wide and unique panorama towards the Lazio and Tuscan hills. The facade and the roof of the building have recently been restored. This articulated historic residence, thanks also to the versatility of the volumes and access from several independent entrances, offers a unique opportunity for those who

wish to transform it into a prestigious private residence, a luxury hotel, an enchanting location for special events or any other project for accommodation and hospitality properties. Only some parts of the complex have a particular historical and artistic interest and have been subjected to restrictions by the Superintendency for cultural heritage.
