The apartment is on the ground floor with a private entrance and a large 70 square metre terrace which has lovely views as far as the mountains. On a clear day the Adriatic is clearly visible. The accommodation, of approximately 140 sq. metres consists of 2 large open plan living rooms, one with a kitchen; 2 bathrooms; 2 double bedrooms and a delightful mezzanine area (approached by a flight of stairs concealed behind a custom built giant bookcase); entrance hall, storeroom and stairs to the terrace. The terrace has a sunny aspect and a little room on either side - one with a tiny kitchen and one furnished as a study. The views are spectacular.
The restoration has taken 4 years to complete and every effort made to retain original features such as the great oak beams that support the ceilings. The entire terracotta brick exterior has been re-pointed and not a single detail has been overlooked - even the new shutters are all carved from single wooden panels as would have been the originals. The quality of the flooring, the bathrooms, the kitchen and all the fittings are of the standard you would expect from what is probably the finest restoration we have seen.
There is also some original furniture dating back to the palazzo's aristocratic heyday. The First Floor of the palazzo has been preserved in its original glory as state rooms, decorated by the Pennese artist Renzi and they are open to the public for only a handful of days each year.
This property is highly recommended for viewing.
Penne is a beautiful hilltop town which is popular with both overseas home buyers and visitors to Abruzzo. It has shops, banks, restaurants, cafĂ©s and bars as well as historical buildings. As you stroll around the town you will see fascinating lanes, characterised by ancient houses and churches, almost entirely made of bricks. This makes Penne one of the most historically significant towns of the area. It also affords breath-taking views to the mountains.
August is festival time in Penne when the streets are filled with stalls selling arts, crafts and culinary delights. Not to be missed.
