Description in Detail

This apartment makes me think of the return of the “charm of the city centre”. Grab this unique opportunity to live and enjoy the comforts of the city centre in a bright and airy apartment with a 360-degree rooftop terrace view. The story goes that in the past, the count that lived on the first floor would spend every Sunday morning reading the paper on the terrace until it was time for lunch.

The Rooftop Charm is located on the top floor of a four-story historic palazzo, just a few steps from the central train station. A beautiful hallway welcomes you into the apartment; do not fret the building of course has an elevator to take you to your rooftop apartment!

Rooftop Charm boasts warm natural light and silence. The two-story apartment measures roughly 250 m2; currently, there is a large entrance, two living rooms with large windows, a kitchen, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms. On the top floor, there is another room with a fireplace where there is access to the rooftop terrace which offers incredible views of Florence.

Since the apartment needs to be renovated, this allows the future owner the opportunity to furnish it and design the space to their own unique taste. The particular L-shape of the apartment allows you to easily create two distinct spaces, one dedicated to the living areas with large bright living rooms and another area for the bedrooms. Rooftop Charm is the ideal apartment with a great layout and foundation for you to design and make your own dream rooftop apartment in the city center.

Rooftop Charm is perfect as either a primary or a secondary residence and is also a great investment. The area offers plenty of private parking garages so access by car is easy.

  • City: Firenze

Its position is very convenient since it is located close to the central train station and the main road that surrounds the city center, however, the apartment is still exquisitely quiet and private. Nearby, there is the renowned International French school which you can easily walk to. The other International Junior and Upper schools are within 8 – 13 km away by car. 

You can easily reach by foot the beautiful large Cascine park and the new theatre – Teatro Nuovo. This apartment is also close to the Arno river, perfect for Sunday strolls.
