About the Property

charming restored 16th century penthouse in the heart of Rome with all comforts

The apartment is a charming restored 16th century duplex penthouse in an elegant four-story, four-family building in the center of historic Rome on a tiny quiet street (flanked on one side by 16th century Via dei Banchi Nuovi and on the other by 19th century Corso Vittorio Emanuele with busses to all areas of the city). It is nine blocks west of Piazza Navona and northwest of Campo dei Fiori, and five blocks southwest of 2nd century Ponte Sant’Angelo, Hadrian’s tomb and the Vatican on the other side of the Tiber River. A large doorway leads to the building’s foyer, with five steps up to a wrought iron gate to an elevator for three people. At the apartment’s marble landing, two steps lead up to the apartment, which consists of: a foyer, a fully equipped kitchen, a one-step-down brick-and-wood- beamed cathedral Renaissance-ceilinged and terra-cotta tiled floor living room (with a ceiling fan and a couch that opens to a double-bed), a dining room that seats 6-8, the living and dining rooms open onto a planted terrace (oleanders, olives, lemon and kiwi trees, rosemary, gardenia, etc.) with a dining table and six chairs); down three steps from the living room are a tiny ‘foyer’ and the bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom (one matrimonial with air conditioner and ceiling fan with a marble bathroom with box shower and bidet, the other mansard-roofed with twin beds, a moveable fan and a tiled bath with a tub).
An outdoor stairway leads from the downstairs terrace to an even larger top floor terrace with a catwalk and panoramic views of Rome’s roofs, Castel Sant’Angelo and three lounges for sunbathing. This terrace is also reached by an indoor wooden steep staircase that leads to a small studio.
The apartment has high speed 24/7 Internet access, WiFi, flat screen tv, DVD, dishwasher, washer-dryer, air conditioner in the master bedroom, stereo, American coffee and espresso makers, and full liability insurance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am an American born woman of a certain age who was raised in Italy and returned to the U.S. for university and career but never stopped missing Rome. So in 2004, after searching for many many years, I found and purchased my dream apartment in my dream quartiere of Rome, il centro storico. I return each summer for six weeks to get my infusion of Rome before returning to New York City where I live most of the time.

Why the Owner Chose Rione V Ponte, Roma, Italy:
Because it is a complete little 16th century jewel with all the modern conveniences where I can sit on my terrace, sipping my espresso and gaze at Roman rooftops.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Too many to list. See description.
