Home in Città di Castello Umbria Italy

This prestigious and expansive townhouse spread across three levels, is nestled within the narrow streets and alleyways near the central square of Città di Castello’s historic heart. This delightful town is situated in the northern reaches of Umbria along the Tiber River’s banks and just a short drive from the border with Tuscany. Città di Castello is adorned with a plethora of amenities and a rich tapestry of artistic and cultural sites.

The residence is readily accessible from parking areas, and its prime position, a stone’s throw from shops, bars, and restaurants, ensures a vibrant community is always within reach. This allows for an immersive urban experience, enabling one to navigate the town on foot, thereby eliminating the necessity for a car for daily errands. Additionally, the proximity to the E45 motorway interchange facilitates effortless travel across the entire Tiber Valley and to Rome, approximately two and a half hours away.

Occupying a section of Palazzo Vitelli alla Mattonata, the current owner has meticulously honoured the dwelling’s historical significance by maintaining the original façade and harmoniously integrating it with stone features and a splendid early 20th-century wrought-iron balcony.
The house features a stylish entrance from the alley, leading up a walnut staircase to the lounge, which boasts a semi-open fireplace, a cloakroom, and access to the eat-in kitchen. This kitchen opens onto a quaint balcony offering picturesque views over the city’s rooftops. The subsequent floor houses three spacious bedrooms, bathed in natural light from large windows and skylights, all adorned in a serene light blue colour scheme. A commodious bathroom is also situated on this level.

An artistically designed staircase, accompanied by a late 19th-century wrought-iron bannister, ascends to the top floor. This area serves as a utility space, hosting a technical room and laundry, and provides access to a compact terrace (about 10 sqm) equipped with a barbecue and a shell marble sink, offering panoramic views over the city’s alleyways and the scenic landscape beyond.

The townhouse stands out for its spaciousness, luminosity, and authenticity. The interiors are airy and sizable, preserving the original materials and architectural details. The entire building is in impeccable condition, having been thoughtfully restored to include a new roof, extensive skylights, exposed beams, and warm, elegant interiors featuring exposed stone, luxurious bathrooms, fine teak wood flooring, and notably, very spacious rooms.

The Vitelli family, once the most eminent in Città di Castello, assumed lordship in the 15th century and enhanced the city with numerous exquisite structures. As allies of Florence, the Vitelli commissioned Giorgio Vasari to decorate the magnificent façade of Palazzo Vitelli alla Cannoniera, which now houses the Municipal Gallery Art of Città di Castello.
