Penthouse on the piazza, Piazza Matteotti, Umbertide, Umbria


2 Bedroom Apartment For Sale

Located in the main square of the pretty Umbrian market town of Umbertide, this elegant two-bedroom apartment occupies the top two floors of a renovated, five-storey, 400-year-old palazzo. The top floor of the apartment sits behind the town clock-face and enjoys the benefit of not one, but two panoramic terraces. Also a huge benefit is the lift/elevator from the ground floor hallway which avoids all but one flight of stairs.
Access to the building is via a narrow street off the main the square and the discreet entrance, with the aforementioned lift, doesn't for a moment prepare you for this beautiful apartment located on the fourth and fifth floor of the palazzo. The lift transports you as far as the third floor and from there a private staircase leads to the front door which opens into an entrance area, with guest bathroom, which in turn opens into the reception room - the central point of the apartment. To the left is the dining room and separate fully equipped fitted kitchen, whilst to the right a corridor from the reception room leads to a study, the master bedroom with sumptuous bathroom ensuite and adjacent dressing room, a second reception/TV room and bedroom two, also with an ensuite bathroom.
Returning to the reception room, a short flight of stairs leads up to an attic space, used as a second study, which is located behind the opaque clockface of the palazzo with the reverse side of the clockface, the numbers and the clock hands in full view. From this unique and light-filled room there are two separate doors which lead to two separate roof terraces of pretty much equal size. Between the terraces and on the elevated section of the study roof sits a metal support from which dangles a safely secured and wonderful old bell.

This unique apartment was meticulously renovated and is immaculately maintained by the current owners who have created a truly stylish and comfortable home in a convenient location. Umbertide is located on the banks of the Tiber and is therefore flat and relatively easy to negotiate. The pink octagonal church, known simply as the 'collegiata' and the imposing medieval fortress - 'La Rocca' - are steps away from the main square in which a market is held twice a week.  Umbertide is on bus route and has a tiny train station which provides an alternative to travelling to the city of Perugia by car, but the proximity of the E45 motorway also allows easy access to Perugia and Perugia airport along with plenty of other Umbrian gems including Gubbio, Assisi, Spello, Spoleto and Todi.
