We offer for sale an early Baroque castle complex in Žitenice, including farmstead and garden.

The castle perches majestically on the slope, and forms a distinctive ensemble with the adjacent farmstead and the Church of St. Peter and Paul. It offers breathtaking views of Litoměřice and the Bohemian Central Uplands landscape.

The L-shaped castle with two wings is surrounded by an extensive farmstead. On the north side, a Baroque gate with a newer fence leads to the castle courtyard with a fountain. A road along the eastern walls leads to the farmyard, while an older pathway in the west separates the farmstead from an adjoining garden. Remnants of an old stone staircase lead from the promontory at the southern main wing of the castle to the lower courtyard.

On the three residential floors of the castle there are forty rooms (excluding the cellar, storage, stairs, corridors, and toilets). The usable area of the outbuildings is about 1,900 sqm.

Originally, a Gothic fortress stood at this location. The oldest part is the cellar under the southwest corner of the castle building covered with a barrel vault, as well as some linings of the entrances and windows. In another medieval construction phase, the eastern side of the main wing was likely added, as evidenced by dividing walls and cross-vaults without ridges in some rooms. The Renaissance remodeling had a crucial impact on the current size of the castle. At that time, a two-story west wing was built as was a south wing, elevated by another floor on the level of the newly built west wing. The west wing was adorned with arcades on the courtyard side at all levels. The Baroque transformation followed, with the entrance gate to the courtyard decorated with rusticated pilasters and a segmented gable. A stone fountain was installed, and the arcades in the west wing were bricked up on the courtyard side. Simple and group windows were inserted into these walls. A small castle chapel was established on the second floor of the south wing. There are impressive Baroque doors leading to the rooms at the same floor. The ceilings here have profiled stucco mirrors.

Fortunately, the 20th century did not significantly impact the building; only a few rooms had new thin partitions added, some windows and doors were bricked up, the roof was replaced, and the facade was renovated.
