Property description

This lovely 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment, rests an historic Oltrano Florentine building on a quiet side street called Via della Chiesa. It has characteristic high wood-beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, and wonderful views from the windows, natural light, tranquility and prime location. It is furnished tastefully, with antiques, comfortable bedding, a washing machine and a fully equipped kitchen. It also has a collection of books about Florence and the Renaissance.

The apartment is in the heart of the historic center of Florence in the Oltrarno/Santo Spirito area—the perfect home base for exploring Florence. It is steps away from Santo Spirito Church, Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio, Boboli Gardens and Brancacci Chapel. It is walking distance from the Uffizi, San Marco, San Lorenzo, Santa Croce, and other historic monuments. It is also near artisan and antique shops and fine dining. There is a daily market with fresh produce in Piazza Santo Spirito. You have the charm of living in an authentic residential Florentine neighborhood, while being close to everything you want to experience in this fabled city.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am an artist and an educator, living in New York City. I currently teach at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and I exhibit my work nationally and internationally. I studied painting in Florence and then lived there for many years. Mi sento a casa in Italia!

Why the Owner Chose Santo Spirito:
I am an artist and I studied painting in Florence. It is my home away from home after having lived there for many years. Santo Spirito is my favorite neighborhood in Florence. I love how authentic it is--buying veggies in the local market after popping in to see Masaccio's frescoes at the Brancacci Chapel. Heaven!!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment has a lovely cross breeze, and you can hear the sounds of the church bells throughout. The sense of spaciousness and light is refreshing. The benefit of renovating an apartment in Italy is that you can choose from the best materials while maintaining the original features. I love the typical wood-beamed ceiling and the terracotta floors.
