Golf Club Carimate was created in 1962 together with the construction of residential housing, as even at that time, the novel prospect of living in the verdant golf greens was deemed attractive to home buyers.
Today Carimate is taken as a prime example for any real estate project by developers interested in putting environmental respect as a prime concern when planning golf estates. This prime area is situated in the foothills of Brianza halfway between Milan and Como.
Initially belonging to the Baroness Arnaboldi Cazzaniga whose family had owned the estate since 1700, the Park and Castle were sold to the Società Generale Immobiliare of Roma.
The dimension of the estate allowed for an ambitious project, at the center the ancient Castle, surrounding it with a residential area of single-family villas, about four hundred, none of which higher than the surrounding trees and designing a golf course in the remaining 60 hectares, a total success.
