ITALY, TUSCANY, FLORENCE
Prestigious luxury apartment in the center of Florence near Ponte Vecchio, in a famous tower. The presence of the internal frescoes and garden make this property unique with its rich in particular historical features and which certainly make it one of the most interesting properties on the Florentine real estate market at the moment.
In the heart of the Florence historical city center, on the Oltrarno side of the city and a few steps from Ponte Vecchio, close to all the main attractions of the city. It is not only a prestigious location for everyday life, but also has enormous potential as an investment for luxury rental for tourist and/or representative apartment.
Torre dei Marsili is attributed to the XII century. It is one of the medieval towers of Borgo San Jacopo, in the Oltrarno district of Florence. Inestimable value of the entire property is the terracotta depicting the ‘Annunciation’ Giovanni della Robbia XV-XVI century. The original is perfectly preserved in the entrance hall of the Tower, while a terracotta copy is exhibited outside on Borgo San Jacopo.
Unique property of over 220 square meters located on the ground floor, with beautiful original frescoes of great value, we mention just the ‘grotesques’ that adorn the entrance to the apartment. The same ‘grotesque’ that Francesco dei Medici had decorated in 1500 on the ceiling of the Uffizi Gallery.
This majestic apartment, located away from the street thus enjoying peace and tranquillity, can be reached through a large atrium and reception room, to be immediately struck by the sumptuous high ceilings with wonderful frescoes. The property features two entrances – one from the building and an independent one in the garden.
From the entrance hall you can access a guest bedroom with private bathroom, while the main double bedroom with private bathroom overlooks the garden, as well as the kitchen and study (with a project for a third bathroom plus laundry) and the two main living rooms . Both living areas open towards the enchanting private fenced garden through large French windows. With the external garden and living space makes this property a one of a kind, in the heart of the historical center 100 meters from the famous Ponte Vecchio with a garden.
The Carratelli architecture studio has carried out a renovation project going to enhance all the architectural aspects by including modern elements. The project foresees to realise a prestigious home by restoring the ancient existing architectural elements, yet perfectly integrate with modern aspects that make the property comfortable and functional.
