Prestigious penthouse located in Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, in the heart of Florence, just two steps from Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria. One of the Renaissant landmarks in the heart of Florence.
The large 520 sq.m penthouse on the second floor of Palazzo Budini Gattai is in good structural shape, although needs a general renovation. It could easily accommodate up to 10 bedrooms for the creation of a luxury boutique hotel or a private apartment in the heart of the city. It comprises 15 ample rooms, all accessed independently, that are currently unused but could be easily converted into reception halls and/or bedrooms with bathrooms.
The building is in good condition and still features some of the original finishes among which the remains of several frescoes are visible all around the apartment. Particularly interesting is the huge stained-glass skylight located at the centre of the building. Other features include parquet flooring, original stone fireplaces and mouldings.
Access to the apartment is through a monumental condominium staircase decorated with an iron balustrade and stone columns, added during the renovation of the late 19th century supervised by Giuseppe Boccini. The palazzo is the only one in Florence featuring an exposed-brick facade.
Walking distance from the apartment are all amenities in the centre of Florence.
