This beautifully restored 1st-floor apartment is located in a palazzo dating from the 1600s and is a very short and easy walk from Arpino's main piazza and all the shops, bars & services you might require.
The building itself is extremely well maintained, and the entrance door, hall, and staircase are quite impressive.
The apartment is very spacious and has been sensitively restored to maintain its numerous beautiful original features. Most rooms feature original antique majolica hand-painted floor tiles from Naples, some rooms feature original wood-beamed ceilings. All windows have been restored to a high level and have new shutters. There is gas central heating throughout the home.
The rooms of this home are spacious and very bright, and many have views that extend over the beautiful gardens and beyond to the valleys and mountains.
The reception rooms include a bright and charming eat-in kitchen, a large family room, and a large more formal sitting room, which still has its stunning original marble fireplace.
There are two large bedrooms, and a smaller one which could actually house a double bed should you desire it.
Currently, there is only one bathroom, but there is space to create another bathroom on this floor quite easily.
A few steps down from this apartment are the lovely terraced communal gardens. Edged with old stone and planted with various mature fruit trees, these gardens are a romantic place to enjoy alfresco lunches and dinners.
Opening directly onto these gardens is a series of very large cellar rooms, which are found in their original state, albeit in very good structural condition.
The main cellar room has its old stone olive press intact as well as its towering ceilings, and big stone arched doorways. There is an independent street entrance to these cellars, which might mean you can make another fabulous apartment in this space, or even a wine bar (subject to permissions).
Please call or email for further information or to arrange a viewing.
