This spectacular residence is located in the heart of Cortona and occupies the entire second floor of the building, ("piano nobile" the most impressive floor with high celings) which amounts to 540m2 of living space. The whole palace which is of great artistic and historical interest, was once owned by a noble family of Cortona, and consists of ground floor plus three floors and an interior courtyard.
The baroque facade of the building is wonderful and the wonders contained within it are truly magnificent. Famous Renaissance architects and artists took part in the creation of this incredible property.
This luxury apartment has been the subject of careful and meticulous restoration aimed at uncovering and preserving the original period features of the building and to value all those artistic and architectural features which over the years had been veiled. The magnificent frescoes have returned to their original splendour after 2 ½ years of restoration, as well as the magnificent coffered ceilings finely decorated and the terracotta floors.
All installations, wiring etc. of the house were removed and totally renewed. The windows have been restored and thermal adjusted. Where it has not been possible to use recycled materials, the highest quality materials have been used. The aim in the restoration was to return the residence to its former glory with every corner of this property being meticulously designed so that it could be combined in line with the surrounding space and especially maintaining the link to the historical context.
The main floor is composed of a first large hall with fireplace and elegant sofas, at the main entrance, which is accessed by the communal staircase.
The west side consists of 3 large bedrooms, a bathroom and a study.

In the beautiful bathrooms, they have used rare onyx and yellow Siena marble both of which are beautiful and rare.
The furniture has been selected with great attention to detail from antique shops in the area and throughout Italy to find unique pieces that could fit in with the splendid environment, as well as all the upholstery, sculptures and paintings which fill the interior.
This property is a rare opportunity to acquire such a fabulous for contemporary luxury lovers and at the same time admirers of true beauty, culture and the artistic past of Italy.
