A unique and exclusive property, perfect for those who want to breathe the authentic atmosphere of an ancient manor housed in an apartment with incomparable charm and a tower that amazes for its attention to detail. La Torre Longobarda stands in a spectacular position, a real balcony overlooking the magnificent valley of Calanchi di Bagnoregio with a view of Civita, the Dying City. In this enchanting location, a short distance from services, the apartment and tower are offered for sale.
La Torre Longobarda can be reached via a short stretch of white road, which ends in an avenue of cypresses. You are immediately enchanted by the mighty charm of the ancient castle and by the tower that stands alone right next to the manor. The origin of the castle dates back to the V-VI century AD; it was then enlarged in the Longobard age and then restructured in the 11th century. The property consists of a large and comfortable apartment with loft, with triple access from the ground floor, and from the tower, arranged over 3 levels. The apartment is spread over a commercial area of about 249 square meters and consists of an entrance hall with a barrel vault and original ceiling, which opens onto a storage room and a marble bathroom with large shower. You are therefore at the heart of the house, the large living area with kitchen characterized by its impressive original high-vaulted ceiling. The fireplace is also majestic, which takes us back in time, as are the windows, niches and loopholes found in every room. Going up the wooden staircase we find the loft, used as a guest bedroom and complete with bathroom and shower. In the living area there is a beautiful tuff arch that leads to the large living area, dedicated to conviviality and equipped with an independent entrance from the shared garden. The room has many fascinating features: tuff niches of various shapes and sizes, a high ceiling in wood and handcrafted terracotta, a beautiful stone fireplace. Another arch leads to the hallway, where we find a laundry room and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and marble shower created in a large niche in the thick walls of the manor. At the end of the corridor there is another door that leads to the green space at the back of the house. Also included in the sale is the tower, arranged on three levels, for a total of 52 sqm. The ground floor is used for storage. The first level is accessed via the ancient external stone staircase and you find yourself in the living area also equipped with a sink and electric hob. Going up the stairs you reach the sleeping area with bathroom. Ingenious solutions similar to those adopted for boats have made it possible to make the most of the spaces, while preserving the ancient identity of the tower.
The apartment is ideal as a main residence for those seeking comfort and tranquility in a context close to services or as an excellent investment for accommodation. The tower lends itself to being placed on the short-term rental circuit, given its proximity to both the valley of Calanchi and Civita di Bagnoregio, the “Dying City” and the medieval city of Orvieto.
La Torre Longobarda is located in the countryside of Lazio just 5 km away from Civita di Bagnoregio, the “Dying City”, one of the most evocative experiences that can be had in the Tuscia area. The property is located just 17 km away which ensures an excellent connection with the A1 and the railway station. Rome is about 1 hour and a half away. The nearest center is about 3 km away.
