On a tiny street a five-ten minute walk from everywhere: Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori, Castel Sant’Angelo and the Vatican, in a 16th century fully-renovated four-family elevator building, flanked on one side by 16th century Via dei Banchi Nuovi and on the other by 19th century Corso Vittorio Emmanuele with busses to all areas of the city and a 15 minute walk to the Metro. Very charming fully-renovated Renaissance penthouse duplex, with two beautiful terraces, it is the only apartment on the top, 4th, floor and is close to many churches, shops, restaurants, bars, food markets, and supermarkets.
The apartment has upstairs and downstairs terraces, a small foyer, Renaissance tiled and wood-paneled fully equipped kitchen, eight-seat dining room, living room with vaulted Renaissance brick-and-wood-beamed ceiling and historic terracotta-tiled floor; two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. This is an enchanting, comfortable and cozy apartment, with terracotta, marble, tile and hardwood floors, history-appropriate furniture, large tapestries and mirrors, and autonomous heating.
Other relevant information: The apartment has free 24/7 high speed Internet, flat screen TV, DVD, autonomous heat, dishwasher, washer-dryer, microwave, toaster, American and espresso coffee makers, air conditioner, fans, iron/ironing board, hair dryers, down quilts for beds in winter and bright reading lights.
Layout: From the street a portone (large doorway) leads to the building’s entrance hall, with five steps up leading to a wrought iron gate and three-person elevator. At the apartment’s marble landing two steps lead up to the fully-equipped kitchen and dining room. One step down leads to the living room and downstairs terrace with table and six chairs, planted to oleanders, olives, and orange trees. From the living room down three 16th century steps under a pepperino stone arch are a tiny ‘foyer’ with the bedroom wing; master bedroom with king-size bed and a marble ensuite bathroom with sink, shower and bidet as well and a tiny terrace; second bedroom with twin beds under a mansard roof, a moveable fan and ensuite tiled bathroom with sink, tub and hand shower. Indoor and outdoor stairs lead to an upstairs studio with a large terrace with three mattressed lounges for sunbathing, and a catwalk with panoramic views of Rome’s roofs and Castel Sant’Angelo.
