A few miles from Rome, in the splendid setting of Bracciano’s historic town center, we are offering Palazzo Orsini Pagnotta for sale. More commonly known as Palazzo Del Governatore (The Governor’s House) it is located next to Castello Orsini Odescalchi and the Duomo Di Santo Stefano.
Built in the second half of the sixteenth century, its notable features include an elevation of elegantly symmetrical windows as well as rustication adorning the front entrance and accentuating the lines of the building.
Interior: 2 reception rooms with original coffered ceilings embellished with the Rosa degli Orsini, a two-part coat of arms. Another 2 typically spacious and vaulted rooms are situated at entrance level. The main staircase ascends from the entrance hall, and set above it is an imposing archway, decorated with finely carved roses which again bring to mind the Orsini coat of arms.
On this level, there is also a natural cave dug into the rock which was once used as a storeroom for preserving food and wine. Continuing to the upper floor, 5 bedrooms offer welcoming intimacy as well as charming views over the lake, and the castle’s towers and battlements.
