This property (just under 600 sq.m.) really does have everything – moving up from the entrance staircase you enter a long high ceilinged gallery, light and well proportioned, off which is the main square drawing room.
Also from the gallery is access to the two main bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, one with a balcony overlooking the central gallery, a large and delightful kitchen, and access to the downstairs maid’s quarters. These areas form part of the ‘formal side’ of the house.
But, almost ‘Alice in Wonderland’ like, you go through a door into another world, a comfortable haven with a suite of three rooms, a large living room / formal dining room, a study, and an huge artist’s studio/ second sitting room, as well as a kitchen and a bathroom, and a private secondary exit on to the street entrance below.
The current owners subsequently purchased the mezzanino apartment (around 65 sq.m.) - it has one large room with a possibility of American kitchen, a double bedroom and bathroom. Gothic ceiling. Independent entrance from the courtyard.
There are also two large magazzini for storage accessible from the cortile, as well as the boat entrance for secret arrivals and departures........
This must really be everyone’s dream! The whole property is quiet, discreet and elegant....
Currently used as a fantastic art space by a Foundation, it can easily return to its initial use as an important private residence.
