Christie's International Real Estate - Milan Exclusive is pleased to offer for sale a portion of the "Cascina Boscaiola": a rare and historic 930-sqm property dating back to the first half of the 1400s, once the agricultural and hunting estate of the Visconti family and later of the Sforza family.

It is a building complex with a closed courtyard, consisting of a front with short turnarounds of ancient origin and of a noble type, and back wings of a purely agricultural character. The noble parts are characterized by structural and decorative elements typical of the Renaissance architectural tradition. The architectural setting is characterized by arched windows decorated in terracotta with white plastered framing, brick chimney projections, important wood-carved coffered ceilings, and traces of frescoes inside. Studies of the ancient decorations that adorn its façade have highlighted suggestive themes of Milanese civilization of that era. The property is declared a "national monument" and is under Cultural Heritage restrictions and currently includes only private residences.

The real estate portion currently for sale contains and preserves, more than other parts of the complex, all the characterizing elements described above. The 1967 restoration by architect Vittore Lattuada unearthed fragments of frescoes, architectural and decorative elements that can be traced back to the historic period of construction, and inside, the intervention was radical on the slabs, roof and structures.

This valuable property has two independent entrances: one from the street and one from the inner courtyard. Towards the street, it is surrounded by a garden; in the courtyard, it is possible to park 3 cars and scooters. The building consists of 7 units with a total of 826.25 commercial sq m and is on several levels served by elevator:
- ground floor: entrance, two studio apartments, a one-bedroom apartment with basement;
- second floor: hall with fireplace, dining room, office, study, kitchen, dining room, guest bedroom and bathroom;
- second floor: closet, bedroom with fireplace and bathroom; another apartment with living room, bathroom, two bedrooms, kitchen and utility room;
- third floor: living room with fireplace, dining room with fireplace, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom;
- fourth floor: closet, three bedrooms and two bathrooms;
- basement with cellar.

The property also includes a courtyard and garden, both for exclusive use, totaling 173.5 sq m. It is located in the Viale Jenner area, which is well connected with surface transportation and the yellow subway line MM3 Maciachini stop.
