OSTUNI. OLD TOWN VINTAGE PALACE We offers for sale, exclusively, a portion of a historic 19th century noble palace, among the best preserved in the area, located in the picturesque pedestrian area of the historic center of Ostuni, one of the most beautiful in Italy, known all over the world for its original spontaneous architecture. The building stands at the entrance of the street that connects the central Piazza della Libertà, with the historic seat of the Town Hall and the symbolic column dedicated to the patron Sant'Oronzo, and the cathedral from the 1400s. The house, although located a few steps from all the main tourist attractions of the city, has a sober entrance that, perfectly set in the local architecture, is reserved and discreet, allowing to safeguard the privacy of the owners. Once crossed the entrance door, the white and discreet facade gives way to the constructive grandeur typical of the stately buildings of past centuries. An entrance hall, with stone vaults, leads to a wide staircase that goes up to the upper floor apartment. On the right of the entrance room there is access to the lower floor, where we find a large cellar with walls and vaults in exposed stone, formerly used for the conservation of fine wines and oils, of which the area is rich. Continuing, always on the right, after the entrance to the cellar we find, next to the stairs leading to the first floor, a large room with multiple uses which leads to the elevator shaft. This ancient building, in fact, although finely restored respecting its ancient beauty, is equipped with all the most modern comforts, including a comfortable lift with telephone which from the street level, stopping at all levels of the house, reaches up to the terrace. Going up to the first floor there is a very elegant and bright entrance which several rooms overlook. On the left a large glass door conceals the service kitchen, very bright also thanks to the glass which is part of the ceiling, equipped with all the accessories, designed for use by the maid who provided the preparation of meals during the owners' summer stays . At the center of the entrance there is a small hallway with access to the lift compartment on one side and to a service bathroom on the other. The last access that opens onto the entrance leads to a large living room, used as a study and music room for adults, as well as a playroom for children thanks to the large space available. The vault, entirely frescoed by hand, shines in all its beauty in the light of the imposing candelabrum chandelier placed in the center of the room. From the living room you have access, going down two steps, to the TV lounge where the piano and the large fireplace covered in stone frame the comfortable sofas. Like the main kitchen and the living room, this lounge also has a large full-height window, overlooking Via Cattedrale and Piazza della Libertà, but also has a small balcony, always decorated with colorful flowers. All the rooms, very large, have beautiful floors in old-fashioned cement tiles and barrel vaults. Continuing the visit of the house, from the living room, we find large spiral staircases in wood and steel, made to measure, which lead to the upper floor On the second floor we find the lift on the right and on the left a hallway with sofas that leads to the sleeping area where we find, on the front, a very large bathroom, with window, furnished with double sink in natural stone and double crystal shower cubicle; on the left there is a large double room, with tuff walls and ceilings; on the right, however, we find the large and spacious master bedroom, with star-shaped stone vaults. All floors are made of local natural stone slabs. To the left of the lift compartment there is an additional bedroom, also with star-shaped tuff vaults, with a Roman balcony from which the Adriatic coast and the splendid Apulian sea are clearly visible. In the same we find the stairs leading to the large terrace. Here too we find access to the lift. The property terrace, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking sunset, offers an enchanting view of the Cathedral and the statue of the protector, as well as the sea and the Ostuni hills Contact our agency for more information.
