Description

Located in an historical Renaissance building in the historic center of Volterra and close to one of the most important streets of the town, we offer for sale amazing apartment of 395 sqm that spread over 2 levels and located on the 2° and 3° floor of the building.

The historic palace was presumably built between 1400 and 1500 and was purchased by a noble gentleman in the mid-1800’s becoming the home of the family who has handed down the property to the present day. The rooms on the top floor, once inhabited by the servants, still have the iron bells used by the owner for the “service calls”.

Over the years the property has maintained the main features of the original building. In particular you can still admire the frescoes of the main rooms whose construction dates back to the first half of 1700.
Despite this, it still needs major renovation works.

Access to the living area located on the second floor is through a frescoed staircase and consists of kitchen, study room, lounges, bedroom with frescoed alcove and bathroom. The upper floor has double access: the main one directly from the staircase and one inside the apartment and consists of several room and several storage rooms.

Unlike the floor below, this level doesn’t have frescoes and the floors are mainly wooden beams and rafters. The property is completed by a small roof terrace that offers a beautiful panoramic view.

Volterra is a village built on a hill and with its double walls, both Etruscan and from the thirteenth-century, it’s a medieval-looking city. Volterra is rich in artistic heritage that can be admired while walking through the streets of the historic center and visiting the city’s museums which include the Etruscan museum, the Pinacoteca, the Museum of Sacred Art or the Eco-museum of Alabaster.
In the heart of the city we find important examples of local medieval architecture such as the “Palazzo dei Priori” built in 1208.
Moreover Volterra is renowned for the Marzuolo Truffle Market Exhibition and for the rustic and genuine cuisine based on local tradition.
