Santa Croce apartment description

This important brand new 3 bedrooms is very sunny bright and spacious, and, quite an unique feature for an historic building, it has an elevator. The apartment (153 yards,140 square meters with 14,7 feet high ceilings) is fully air conditioned and high speed WIFI covered and located in the center of Florence a short walk from the Duomo at the noble floor of a 1850 aristocratic building. An Elevator has just been installed and it is ready to use. It is very rare to find an historic building in the center of Florence which has an elevator. This apartment has very luxury features such as top end bathrooms (Devon & Devon equipment), top quality beds and mattresses, quarter-sawn white oak floors in a herringbone pattern throughout, high end kitchen, very high ceilings (14,7 feet! 4,50 metres!), beautiful rich stuccos and many antique paintings and furnitures ect. NO cheap quality furnitures. As a matter of fact, this apartment was until very recently the private home of a count of local aristocracy and has now been completely renovated to add a touch of freshness to the classic style. The very large windows of the big drawing room and of 2 of the bedrooms look into a nice large historic street with some trees and classic buildings. This very bright sunny and spacious three large bedrooms property is articulated on one level only, it is fully air conditioned (every room can choose its temperature) and has a top speed WIFI. The third bedroom is separate by a corridor which grants a quiet sleep even amongst a group of friends or a large family with children. The house is in the most beautiful safe and sought after residential area in the historical centre of Florence. It is very close to Four Seasons hotel, next to the beautiful Piazza d'Azeglio (one of the very few playgrounds for children in the green), and a short walk from the Duomo, Santa Croce, the Synagogue and the main museums and popular shopping and restaurant areas of Sant'Ambrogio. One of the best ice cream maker is just on block away and the wonderful freshfood market of Sant'Ambrogio just 2 bloks away. There is also an organic food shop and restaurant 50 metres away. It is a very Florentine part of the town, where real Florentines still live. It is possible to rent a private parking for 25€/day in the historic garden downstairs. A house cleaning and laundry service can be provided on demand.
