Located on the top two floors of an old palazzo this lovely apartment shares a beautifully maintained antique staircase which anticipates the tone of the property for sale.
Access is by means of a pretty little terrace and the entrance door opens directly into a spacious and elegant living area that is paved with original terracotta floor tiles.
The master bedroom is located on this floor and occupies the corner of the building, the floor in this particular room is made up of striking, square black, white and red floor tiles.
The kitchen is extremely pretty, again with an original floor, this time in lovely coloured, 'graniglia' tiles. There is a small working fireplace and a terrace/balcony which looks out over neighbouring gardens and provides a lovely space on which to dine. There is a full bathroom on this floor.
An attractive, hand crafted metal and wood staircase leads to the upper floor of the apartment which comprises a small wash room and two attic bedrooms, one of which has a large terrace with a panoramic view of both the surrounding roof tops, gardens and the countryside beyond.
On street level and completely separate to the apartment itself, is a long and very interesting corridor like storage space which has an arched ceiling. Although it would be extremely difficult to manoeuvre a vehicle into this space, it is a very useful area for bicycles, pushchairs etc.
The town centre and all of the amenities that it is offers is only steps away and Citta di Castello is ideally placed for trips to nearby historic towns of interest. Perugia airport is an easy 35 drive.
Citta di Castello is a charming, bustling town built on the Tiber with many super restaurants, bars and shops. There are two art galleries, the Pinacoteca Comunale and the Burri Collection, located in two buildings around the town. Pinacoteca Comunale located in the Palazzo Vitelli alla Cannoniera, the town art gallery has works by Luca Signorelli (from Cortona) and Raphael. A member of the Vitelli family (who used to own the palazzo) is mentioned in Macchiavelli's book of how to succeed in politics; The Prince. The unfortunate mercenary captain is garrotted on the orders of Cesare Borgia.
If you fancy a break from medieval and Renaissance art, the Burri collection is the ideal place. Alberto Burri was born in Citta di Castello and was leading member of the Arte Povera movement, using cheap and recycled materials to create abstract works of art. The collection of 257 pieces is located in the Palazzo Albizzini in the town centre and in buildings previously used for tobacco drying, south of the town centre.

This lovely apartment is immaculate and restored to the highest of standards. The presence of not one but two useable terraces is an added and rather rare bonus in an historic town centre, as is the fact that the surrounding buildings are low lying and in some cases quite distant so the property is not overwhelmed as can so often be the case. Absolutely beautiful and well worth a look!
