In Godiasco (PV), we offer for sale the sixteenth-century Palazzo Pedemonti Malaspina, a jewel on the hills of Oltrepò Pavese, an area with a wine-growing tradition in the heart of the thermal area of Salice Terme.
This palace has a long history, elegant finishes, features wooden, frescoes ceilings and terracotta and parquet floors. The property is embellished by a garden with secular trees, stables and garages. The cellars store precious oak barrels. The building, which covers approximately 3,000 sqm, has undergone various expansions. In 1712, a suspended passage was built between the parish church and the residence, allowing Cardinal Alberoni to secretly attend religious functions. Here he was, in fact, hidden for a few years in a secret apartment, accessible only by a narrow staircase carved between the walls, to escape Pope Clement XV.
The main residential building, extremely articulated, connects the various floors and the numerous rooms with stairs and corridors. The bright rooms overlook the church square and the park. The building, arranged on several levels, is spread over three blocks: the central one and two lateral ones, the most used by the current owner. Although the building was built in different eras, the facade maintains a coherent image.
The palace has many details that are worth mentioning: the large atrium with colonnade and barrel ceiling, the important Baroque staircase with rich balustrades, the imposing ballroom, the terracotta flooring and the vaulted ceiling with a 19th-century fresco. All the rooms maintain frescoes and colors typical of the nineteenth century. The property includes rustic buildings parallel to the villa with stone walls for rural use. The property is kept in good condition, even if some rooms show evident deterioration.
