Castello di Reschio estate in Italy
Castello di Reschio is a very private estate that covers 2,700 acres of Umbrian countryside on the border with Tuscany. This is the green heart of Italy, a land of rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and woods of oak and chestnut. Count Antonio Bolza's vision is clear: to regenerate and restore the estate, preserving its rich history while creating exquisitely restored homes from the 50 scattered farmhouses, to a standard unrivalled elsewhere in Italy and indeed Europe.
The concept is simple. The Bolza family is offering the opportunity to buy one of the 50 un-restored farmhouses, many of which are at least 500 years old and originally the homes of hillside farmers. The properties are sold on a freehold basis with typically 2.5 acres of land although more can be made available should a purchaser so wish. The turn-key service offered by the Bolza family and their project team ensures that a home of unsurpassed quality and unrivalled design will be created. Even more important is the guarantee of price, time-frame and quality of the construction work which is established at the very outset of the transaction. Of the 50 original stone farms and farmhouses, a limited number are available for conversion into exclusive individual properties, while others have already been completed for their new owners. However one or two completed or partly completed properties are, at times, available to purchase. The Estate Management Company, working closely with partners Abercrombie & Kent, is able to offer a comprehensive rental and management service for those owners who wish to offer their properties for rental.
Castello di Reschio offers the complete solution to buying a home abroad and enables clients to have considerable influence on the landscaping, interior design and decoration working closely with the project team. Once a property is completed then the 5* management and maintenance services are available, together with numerous sports and leisure facilities, concierge services and security. The estate offers a full concierge service to rival a five-star hotel, with in-house cooking, shopping service, travel arrangements, private chauffeurs, maintenance and garaging of owner's cars, property rental and management, preparation and payment of property taxes, bills and banking throughout the year. When clients arrive, they are met at the airport, their homes have been prepared, clothes sent in advance will have been unpacked and pressed and a chef will prepare dinner.
