ROME ITALY PERFECT FRESCO APARTMENT
This apartment Featured in Travel + Leisure Magazine.
Luxury penthouse with an expansive terrace from which to enjoy Roman life 'al fresco'.
Located in the upscale Prati neighborhood, an area along the western side of the Tiber River with graceful buildings ,it is much coveted by Romans as one of the most livable historic center locations. It is convenient to the major sites, walkable to shops, cafes, restaurants and public transportation.
“Just across the river from the historic center and five minutes walk from St. Peter's, the Prati neighborhood is quiet at night, but filled with food shops, restaurants, gelaterias, and terrific shopping.”
Prati has much appeal with some of the best shopping in Rome. The neighborhood was developed in the late 1800s and early 1900s with wide, tree-lined streets reminiscent of the boulevards of Paris. Romans and visitors appreciate the proximity to the popular historical center while being able to escape the crowds in the narrow streets.
The apartment is at the top is a well maintained seven-story building from the 1800`s. Enter the lobby and there is a very small elevator up a few steps.
“From the moment we walked in the front door, we knew we were staying in a rare gem hidden within this city that has become one of my personal favorites over the years.”
A small foyer opens to a long attractive hallway with a trio of windows dressed in elegant silk drapes. Because the apartment is top floor with windows on both sides it is bright and pleasant year round.
At the end of the hall is the living room with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace [non-working], two sofas, dining table and chairs and and glass doors that open to the terrace. One of the sofas converts to a queen size sofa bed, the other into a single sofa bed. The apartment is decorated with taste and style, with a successful blend of family heirloom antiques with modern pieces such as the glass dining table. Handsome wall sconces, interesting decorative curios from the owner`s global travels and tasteful artwork are the icing on the we haven`t even started to talk about the terrace.
Up two steps to the terrace where you can enjoy the best of Rome from this outdoor retreat. A view of the terrace is enjoyed from the living room, the kitchen and the bedroom. Life under the Roman skies will be yours, whether it`s enjoy meals outdoors at the patio table or lounging on the recliners while you read your book or nap. What better way to enjoy 'La Dolce Vita'.
