Apartments for Sale in Orvieto Italy: the beautiful noble building

Apartments for Sale in Orvieto Italy: a short distance from the Duomo, the building stands on three levels and occupies the entire block next to the church of San Francesco.

Built starting from existing structures in the fourteenth century, it was with the sixteenth-century intervention of the noble Misseri family that it took on its current form. The building has a large courtyard surrounded by walls and a gate that allows you to admire the brick portico. The staircase that connects the two main levels of the building is also very representative, with, on the first floor, a gallery that overlooks the courtyard with large windows.

Typical of sixteenth-century Orvieto architecture, the facades are characterized by a string course pattern with squared windows and angular ashlar, for an imposing and elegant appearance, in keeping with the prestige of the family who lived there.

Apartments for Sale in Orvieto Italy: the exceptional view of the Duomo

Located on the second floor, access to the property is from the terrace, of which this apartment owns the undivided half. A space of almost forty square meters from which, also thanks to the height compared to the other buildings, it is possible to enjoy unique views of the facade of the Duomo. But it is at sunset that the three and fifteenth-century golden mosaics shine, illuminating the gothic sculptures, with an unrepeatable chromatic show.

The entrance to the house takes place directly in the large 50 sqm living room with two bright windows on the terrace, from which it is possible to reach all the rooms. On one side, the first generous room which can be used as a separate dining room, study or fourth bedroom. On the other hand, a hallway separates the eat-in kitchen and the first bathroom with Jacuzzi from the sleeping area on this floor. Here is the second hallway, the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and the second bedroom, smaller in size.

From this side too, the views are satisfying: over the tile roofs of the surrounding ancient buildings, the view is as far as the eye can see towards Lake Bolsena.

An open staircase in the lounge takes you quickly to the third floor. A partially attic level, but with heights always higher than two meters, which develops starting from the mezzanine suspended above the living room, which can be considered the second living room of the house. From here, you can access the bedroom and the third bathroom, as well as large attic spaces, not habitable but very useful for storage. Here the views are on the sky, with pitched windows that illuminate the rooms.

The property also includes the cellars located in the basement of the building for a total of almost 110 square meters. A fascinating path that leads from the loggia to the foundations, with spaces carved by hand in ancient times and which still retain reminiscences of the uses for which they were intended.

Apartments for Sale in Orvieto Italy: an incredible location

Orvieto, the capital of the “Cittàslow” (Slow Cities), retains all the charm of the towns of Umbria with a long past. A cultural, historical, but also naturalistic, priceless heritage. Starting from the Duomo, a jewel of Romanesque-Gothic architecture, known as the “Golden Lily” of cathedrals, thanks to the golden mosaics that enrich the imposing facade.

An exciting territory, dotted with fortresses, towers and extraordinary engineering works such as the Well of San Patrizio to be discovered through suggestive itineraries immersed in nature, among woods and famous vineyards.

But Orvieto is also an elegant and sophisticated city, with a rich cultural scene and with plenty of events all year round, starting with the Umbria Jazz Festival. Epi/G
