Historic Castle near Vienna and Magna Racino. This extraordinary real estate is situated in good location in a wonderful park close to the Borders of Vienna. This manorial palace originally constructed as a mooted castle in the 2nd half of the 16th century consists of a 3-storey ensemble with a main building & 4 encircling corner bastions with a beautiful view onto a park with lake. At first erected as a well-fortified construction & integral part of the line of defence along the river "Leitha", its present-day baroque appearance is due to extensive reconstructions during the early 18th century. This is when the large ballroom & the grand staircase in the main building were erected. This is also when it was decided to accentuate the main entrance by means of a middle tower with integrated chapel & pinnacle from the late baroque.
There are tenants in the main building as well as in the annexes -living quarters & artists workshop - whose leases will terminate in about 2 years (with 1 exception).
The facades & the whole outward appearance were given a historically correct form, at the same time changing all 4 corner bastions along the former moat to baroque style & also changing the buildings looking towards the garden to garden pavilions. The bridges leading from to town & the garden were sculpturally adapted & up valued by stone sculptures.
The main building encloses a large court yard. The rooms have been substantially restored & supplied with modernized infrastructure in the past years - heating, gas, water, electrical wiring. Wall frescos in the grand ballroom from the years 1720/30, having been covered up by several layers of paint have just recently been discovered, excavated & returned to their original baroque condition with much sense of detail. The castle is about 28km to the southeast of Vienna & just as far to the airport, both can be reached within a 30 minute ride.
The Coach House (option) - This former coach house with stables is located in close proximity to the castle. Constructed in the late baroque period it is on a property of about 5.000m² - of which 1.100m² are nature protection area. The building has been reconstructed. The ground floor consists of an apartment & a convention room. A staircase on the outside of the building looking towards the park leads to the attic, which has very much potential for development.
The property belonging to the coach house guarantees a great view of the castle & the bordering forest.
