This exclusive Florentine apartment, similar to a loft was completely restored in 2011. The historical building dates back to 1420, designed by Brunelleschi. Originally, it was a theatre, it hosted the first ever opera in the presence of Count Bardi, the name of the building derived from Vincenzo Galilei, the brother of Galileo.
The magnificent internal courtyard with wonderful arched doorways leads the way to the “Piano Nobile” where the luxury apartment is situated. The grand space is subdivided into two levels, thanks to a raised loft. The entrance is found on the ground floor, with a library and a large open space, 7 meters high, connecting to the bedroom area. There are three bedrooms in total, plus a chill-out area and a bathroom. The master bedroom is beautifully decorated with captivating frescoes on the ceilings and an ensuite bathroom.
A dining room/living room, kitchen and cocktail bar are situated on the next level, in the loft space, 3 meters high. The style of the luxury residence is a combination of exquisite contemporary Italian design with Florentine architectural details from the 500’s.
Each of the rooms are rather spacious in size and the interior is superbly decorated with original plaster work, outstanding stone craftsmanship and intriguing frescoes from the 18th century. The unique designer pieces from the Bauhaus school are of amazing quality, coordinated with a charming sofa from the 17th century and two terracotta sculptures.
Castiglione, Flos Fontana Arte are responsible for the lighting in the building, which creates a very special atmosphere throughout. Needless to say, the kitchen appliances and internal systems are of top quality.
This centrally located gem of an apartment is on the market for around 4.4 million euro.
