Historic Apartment facing Tower
via Costarella 1, San Gimignano - Siena
Wooden beam ceiling
Located in the heart of the historic center of San Gimignano, it has a privileged and splendid view of the characteristic towers and is wonderfully exposed to the east and south.
The apartment is on two floors and originates from a former convent from the 1200s, rich in history and period features.
The main entrance is located on the ground floor and opens frontally onto the staircase for access to the upper floor and to the right towards a living room completely in stone and with an arched ceiling which leads towards a characteristic brick cellar created in the basement.Also from the living room, through an original corridor also in stone, you enter another room also in stone where we find an original rounded fireplace made by a skilled craftsman of the time.
From here you also have access to an adjacent technical room.
Returning to the entrance, on the left side we have a first double bedroom directly facing the Cugnanesi tower and with private bathroom.
Going upstairs you can appreciate an arched stuccoed ceiling that frames the window directly exposed to the towers, on the right you enter a double bedroom with an original mezzanine and private bathroom.
Turning up the staircase, one enters the large main living room with a terracotta floor and a beamed ceiling with ornamental capitals and a large stone fireplace.
On the right instead, through the dorsal corridor, you enter 2 other double bedrooms both with private bathrooms, one of which with a mezzanine bathroom and with windows that look directly onto the Cugnanesi tower.
At the end, the corridor leads into the second living room with ornate beamed ceiling and through which you enter, through two characteristic stone arches, a dining room with a large brick fireplace with equipped base.In the same room there is also a linear space used as a kitchenette.
The second living room also leads to another corridor which leads to a small service bathroom, a storage room and a room used as a laundry.Next to this is also the second access to the apartment which in this way makes the two floors functionally independent, having the possibility of having two separate entrances.
The skilfully stuccoed stone walls, the terracotta floor and the characteristic ceiling in ornate beams and rafters deserve a special mention.
The property has been renovated following the style of the time, even the doors and windows were created by local craftsmen who, while guaranteeing the correct thermal insulation required by modern prerogatives, maintain the wooden workmanship and the typical closures with shutters.
Also excellent as an investment due to its typicality and given the location in the heart of San Gimignano as well as for the separate accesses of the two floors but also given the centrality and proximity to numerous attractions, cities of art, means of transport and streets of communication.
This property is perfect for those who want a home that is unique in terms of its characteristics, the quality of the materials and the quality of life it brings.
