Property Description


Genestaro Court is a splendid rural building located in the picturesque landscape of Lombardy in the North of Italy. Originally a monastery dating back to the 15th century, the building is a unique destination ideal for running a small hospitality business or as a vacation home. While retaining its characteristic 'U' shape and traditional features, we propose two options for conversion:

1: Private Residence
2: Bed and Breakfast

Nested in nature amongst a splendid landscape of rolling hills, Genestaro Court offers the luxury to live in a place of art, with a rich history, culture and gastronome. The property is situated in Borgo Genestaro in the town of Ambivere a few Kilometres from the historical city of Bergamo, which is approximately 30 min from Milan and is served by Orio al Serio Airport in just 15 minutes. In less than an hour you can benefit from the most beautiful lakes Italy has to offer, Lake Garda, Como and Iseo. For those who enjoy sporting activities in just 1 km you can play Golf in one of Italy's most renowned Clubs, Albenza Bergamo, or in just 2 hours you can ski in the Alps during winter or go to the beach in Liguria during summer.

Adjacent the building is spacious uncultivated land. The front faces the Old Court which overlooks the road 'via Raffaello Sanzio’ whilst the back gives onto the service courtyard.
Facing the front Court is a Doric loggia composed of three bays, which is repeated with thinner columns on the floor above composed of six bays.

Genestaro Court is characterized by thick walls using traditional building techniques in local stone, this splendid ruin lends itself to a restructuring preservation which gives value to existing decorative frescoes and features while simultaneously adding a new lease of life through the sub-division and internal refurbishment of existing spaces.
