Noble apartment with frescoed ceilings in Urbino.
On one of the main streets of Urbino, where many important historic buildings from the Renaissance are standing in front of you, you can notice just one single small terrace.
Being the only one along the street, it makes the apartment it belongs to extremely unique. Today, that exclusive noble apartment is for sale.
As you step in the property, you’ll immediately be in the shared courtyard with a well dating from the 1500s, looking up to the sky.
The apartment is on the piano nobile (first floor) and is characterised by unique elements such as frescoed ceilings and wooden beams, that contribute to making the property very grand.
As you step into the apartment you find, on your right, a large dining room with fireplace and an original wood ceiling from the 1500s and a stone pointed arch.
In the same area, there are also a kitchenette and a bathroom.
On the opposite side there is a lovely living room with frescoed ceilings in excellent condition. It is from this small living room that you can exit onto the terrace and observe the comings and goings of everyday life.
In addition, there is the formal living room with fireplace, where you can enjoy moments of relaxation whilst chatting with your guests.
A beautiful original coat of arms of Urbino hangs on the wall, to remind you of the greatness of the city.
On the opposite side there is a study with frescoed ceiling, a master bedroom and a storage room.
On a lower level there are two large double bedrooms and a big bathroom.
It is of note that the fresco painted on the ceiling of the small living room is identical to the one in Teatro Raffaello in Urbino, so it is likely it is from the same painter.
Urbino, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998 has a lot to offer in terms of art, culture and history. It is considered one of the cradles of Reinassance in Italy and some of the best Italian universities are here.
