Wonderful apartment of about 140 sq. mt. located in a charming period building overlooking Piazza Santo Stefano, one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, just a short walk from Piazza Maggiore. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, kitchen, double living room, and 2 bathrooms. It is tastefully finished and equipped with every comfort.
This apartment has been completely renovated in furnishings and amenities in March 2018. It is located on the 2nd floor (with elevator, 9 steps to get to the property) and overlooks the internal courtyard of the building and therefore is very quiet. The floors are all in an elegant parquet while the kitchen and bathrooms are decorated with ceramic or porcelain stoneware. The windows are all of excellent quality, have screens and can be electronically controlled. The heating is independent and adjustable with the thermostat, while the air conditioning splits, present in each room, provide refreshment during the summer.
The entrance opens onto the living area: an environment where your gaze is immediately caught by the splendid Belle Époque style window, a unique piece. The furnishings include a comfortable crystal table for 6 guests, a double sofa bed (140 cm x 200 cm) and 2 comfortable matching chairs. The flat-screen TV in the living room is 26’’. The dining room is located next to the living room and provides another 6-person table and a series of credenzas useful for accommodating the large kitchen set. The eat-in kitchen has been custom-made by one of the best known Italian furniture makers, with a style that resembles the furnishings of luxury boats. It is fully equipped with an electric oven, a dishwasher, a toaster, a Nespresso coffee machine (capsules not included), and a kit for preparing fresh pasta. The triangular table is a comfortable area for a quick breakfast, while the utility room can be used as a spacious pantry.
To go up to the sleeping area you need to climb the 10 steps of the scenic wooden staircase that leads to the upper floor. A separé provides privacy for the guest room, which is equipped with a double sofa bed (140 cm x 200 cm) and a comfortable wardrobe to store your things.
