Full description:

This townhouse takes its name from a small detail outside the front door regarding an ancient and fascinating practice of street lighting. By means of a hook placed next to the door, a chain linked with an oil lantern, was passed. This lantern was then pulled up to the first floor so as to illuminate the entire street at night.

This wonderful townhouse is a unique residence in the heart of Spello, just off Via Giulia.

It consists in 4 levels and has been carefully restored, maintaining its medieval character, given by stone walls, niches and many other original details like an antique sink dating from the XVII Century.

The entrance to the first level opens into a confortable open space dedicated to the kitchen area with walk in fireplace and a bathroom. Through a feature spiral staircase made of wood, one reaches the lower level living area with a possible second entrance. This room is very characteristic due to the presence of the stone vaulted ceiling and the vaulted alcove also in stone.

Going down for another flight of stairs, we arrive in a unique and particular room. It's the most fascinating room of the house, due to the presence of a medieval well, in perfect conditions which gives the room its old world charme. This room is at the level of the street below and it also provides an efficient alternative entrance.

At the second level there are 2 double bedrooms, and one of them has a breathtaking view of Spello and the surrounding landscape. A spacious and well decorated bathroom is on this floor as well.

About Property Hunt Italia, Mantignana

There are many ways to search for the perfect Italian property: My way is different.

In my years devoted to foreign clients and Italian properties I have learned a few secrets which I’d like to share.

First and foremost, some properties appeal to certain people while other clients are completely taken by something very different. On the other hand, there is a type of property that is universally appreciated, whose intrinsic value is immediately grasped regardless of origin or background.

Clients have varying expectations of their Italian house hunt and this fact is closely related to time: How many trips will it take to find the ideal property? How long will take to get it right? Listings are based primarily on TIMING.

In light of the foregoing I have personally and carefully selected only properties that are SPECIAL because of their matchless location, exceptional architecture or rare history. They are listed in the following categories:

- “Practically Perfect” encompasses fully restored homes ready to move into and enjoy from Day 1.

- “Revamp” reflects homes that will require some updating or minor work
- “Phoenix Projects” are amazing properties that deserve to be “brought back from the ashes”. They are complete renovations waiting to retell their centuries old tales.

Italy offers so much in terms of special properties reflective of its highly sought after lifestyle and timeless beauty; make certain your house hunt truly makes the most of the best on offer. Make sure your new home embodies the best of Italy.
