A very central location for this impressive, almost regal apartment of 218 mtq extending over two floors and which is housed in one of Cortona’s oldest palazzo dating back to the 1200’s.
The apartment which enjoys fantastic views over the vast expanse of the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno has independent access in a quiet town centre side street, but is just a few steps from the main piazzas.
Built for the nobility, its beamed ceilings are high and there is an abundance of natural light which pours through the windows. Reminiscent of a medieval hall, the enormous sitting room/dining room with beautiful arched stone windows and a giant stone fireplace is, literally, fit for a king!
With many unique features retained and/or installed when the apartment was restored in 2006 -such as the original frescoes in the master bedroom, the original antique fireplace, the stunning arched stone openings between rooms – this extraordinary apartment is most definitely a piece of Italy’s history elegantly modernised to meet the demands of the day.
The apartment has three large bedrooms, three bathrooms, a good sized cook’s kitchen, a laundry room (between levels), the stunning living/dining room which totals 52 mtq and a very large cantina.
If you have the budget, definitely worth viewing – all finishes are top quality, location is excellent and the view is breathtaking!
