Property Description

In the heart of the old town, and precisely in Via delle Torri, we propose for sale apartment of 60 square meters placed on the first floor, completely renovated, arranged on two levels, with unique features of its kind! The property consists of a kitchenette living room, customized with typical old town materials such as macco and bricks, and a bathroom on the ground floor; through exposed wooden staircase, you reach the first floor where we find a master bedroom, with a particular domed ceiling as evidence of the nobility of the building, a single room and an additional bathroom to serve the sleeping area. The whole thing is completely renovated and finished, bright and thermo-autonomous. It offers the opportunity to buy over the property described above, a local warehouse located on the ground floor of 30 square meters total, equipped with double entrance, one directly from the street, and the other from the interior of the same quaint courtyard from which the apartment accesses. The property is located within Quaglia Palace, one of the historic palaces of the country, renovated and renovated by the architect Giovan Battista Benedetti in the years 1807/1867, at the behest of Cardinal Angelo Quaglia, from whom it takes its name, who decided to transform the old existing building into a sumptuous dwelling with a private chapel inside and a spectacular prospect of access, making fresco the entire apartment intended for him by the painters Angelini and Demauro. All this work is still visible inside the palace, except for the domes and vaults of the top floor, replaced with floor attic following the bombing of the Second World War. Inside this building you can still breathe its history and its nobility; already from the front door of the building, imposing and with its carvings, which opens onto a courtyard where the hooks are still present, where originally the horses of the Cardinal's servants were kept tied. Or as in the large and finished stairwell decorated in the walls with the same decoration of the dome present in the master bedroom of the property object of sale, or with its marble steps, with their very small rise, synonymous with those who in another era climbed the stairs of their building on horseback! Not least the paper testimony of the prospectuses and historical seedlings that date back to the time of the renovation of Cardinal Angelo Quaglia!
