Stunning apartment located in the historic centre of Florence, literally two steps from Piazza del Duomo.
The 420 sq.m apartment situated on the piano nobile of a historic palazzo was owned in the 16th century by the famous Florentine architect Bernardo Buontalenti. It is the only property on the road to feature two balconies overlooking the cathedral and its dome.
Currently the apartment that is split into 2 units has been connected to create a single elegant dwelling. Set in a building based on a late-Renaissance template, but one can easily see the reworked features added in the 18th century. At the centre of the apartment is the beautifully frescoed hall which was originally the library of the palazzo. The interior was recently restored and the beautiful finishes have been highlighted featuring frescoed walls, parquet flooring, vaulted ceilings, mouldings, decorated wooden beams and coffers painted with floral motives and wooden decorations. Doors have been specifically crafted by Tuscan artisans respecting the style of the apartment and have been fully hand-painted. It comprises in total 2 dining areas, 2 kitchens, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3 internal courtyards. Modern comforts include a lift, double glazing, air conditioning, LED lighting and WiFi.
The building is located in a privileged position in one of the most beautiful areas of Florence, which guarantees security and comfort. The apartment offers a unique investment opportunity, especially taking into account that there are 2 independent entrances along the road. It would also be very easy to restore the independence of the two units
