Two steps from Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Santissima Annunziata in Florence, on the first floor of a recently restored Renaissance palazzo, 82-sqm apartment with 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms. The property, overlooking Via dei Servi, is currently under renovation and the buyer is given the freedom of choosing the finishes he/she prefers, which can be seen on a catalogue on site.
Entering the apartment, one finds himself in a cosy living room with a bathroom. Just a bit further there is a dining room with an open-plan kitchen and a window overlooking Via dei Servi. A door leads then to a generous double bedroom with a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom.
The building is the typical Florentine palazzo: the main façade, along Via dei Servi, is laid over four floors. The lower one features the light ashlar (bugnato) commonly found in many palazzos dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries. A string course marks the lower edge of the second floor, sporting gabled windows (both triangular and half-circular) and well-visible cornerstones in contrast with the white plastered façade. A second course marks the third floor, identical in style to the one below it, which then goes on to the roof without further divisions.
