Main Features

Description

Tower-house in the Urbino hills. 
A truly unique country home dominating the spectacular hills of Montefeltro. Just ten kilometers from Urbino, the Renaissance city classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Ca’ Guerla consists of a former lookout tower from the fifteenth century connected to a brick house of a later era, immersed in a pristine landscape of woods and organically cultivated fields, in a no-hunting zone. Acquired and renovated in 1976 by world-renowned architect and urban designer Giancarlo De Carlo, who among his many works designed the university colleges, the Art Institute and the Teaching Department in Urbino, it has been granted a certificate of Important Artistic Value by the Italian Ministry of Culture. For several years the residence of novelist Andrea De Carlo, who wrote some of his bestsellers here, in 2014 it underwent a substantial renovation, including new roofs, insulation, highest grade windows, shutters and doors, a closed wood burning fireplace with vents, a traditional open hearth fireplace and a state-of-the-art gas heating system. Ca’ Guerla measures 415 square meters, and comprises five bedrooms, four bathrooms, an L-shaped living room with studio, a spacious kitchen, an independent guest apartment, a windowed cellar/storeroom, a windowed heating/laundry room and a 30 square meter porch. The spacious interiors, fully functional as they are, offer great potential for development by the buyer as a residence, a vacation home, an artist’s studio, a B&B or other activities. The land consists of three hectares of garden, woods and a fruit orchard. There is ample room for a swimming pool, and there are several areas suited to  be fenced off for horses or other animals. Distinguished by a blend of historical and contemporary architecture, unspoiled nature and absolute tranquillity, this property is an incredible find for those seeking authenticity, in an unexploited part of central Italy, convenient to the Adriatic seaside as well as the countryside of Tuscany and Umbria.
