Built in 1200, this ancient house has been gutted and restored.
A family home, occupied since 1200 by the current owner’s ancestors.
Owned by the ex Chief of the Carabinieri of Spoleto (the military and most powerful police force in Italy). Now, he is a Colonel and has taken up higher investigative duties in Rome. His wife is a doctor, Head of the drugs legislation throughout the EU. And their young daughter is studying for her PhD in Economics in Milano.
They sound a frighteningly competent family. In fact, like many other very successful people, they are extremely down to earth, modest and lovely people!
Anyway, the point is they can only visit their beloved Spoleto occasionally. This is why they decided to offer their spacious home to the holiday rental market.
Neither of the flats has a terrace. Terraces were unheard of in the 13C!
The large flat contains a fresco of the Virgin from the 13th century on the wall of the main bedroom. And, there is an original ancient Roman well in the dining room (it has been made completely safe, no danger – it’s behind a glass door with a lock. You will have the key so it’s completely child proof).
The large 3 bedroom apartment is on two floors. It has 2 bathrooms.
The upper floor has 2 bedrooms, with a total of 3 beds, one bathroom with tub/shower, a corridor and a separate, large living room (walls and doors are all painted nicely).
The ground floor has another double bedroom with bathroom, and a big kitchen/dining room with a very large, beautiful wooden table, to seat 10 persons.
Both the dining room and the living room upstairs have a fireplace.
The smaller 2 bedroom apartment with 1 bathroom is up a short, steep flight of steps – not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
All on one level –
It has two bedrooms with a total of 3 beds, a kitchen/dining room/living room with fully fitted kitchen plus fireplace and an attic room – great for storage re long term guests!
Both apartments are furnished in a mix of styles as befits a family home. Family heirlooms (writing desks, a couple of tables, paintings and an amazing wardrobe) are placed alongside modern lounge furniture, bedroom furniture, kitchens and bathrooms.
Many of the walls are frescoed in the old tradition.
There is central heating throughout. However, with 3 fireplaces, this makes this, one of the oldest houses in Spoleto, a great place to be in the winter months, especially over the Christmas period. Wood can be bought very cheaply from local supermarkets – about 4 euros/bag.
In the summer months, the house stays wonderfully cool because of its ancient thick stone walls.
It stands in a quiet enclave in the oldest part of central Spoleto. Yet, it is only a few paces to the nearest grocery store.
There is an old established bakery and grocery store immediately across the narrow lane.
And it’s a mere 5 mins walk to the Duomo and the top of Spoleto.
There are shops, bars and restaurants all within your immediate environment. As well as churches, monuments, galleries, antique shops and theatres.
Market day is every Friday. And there’s a huge Sunday Market, 1st Sunday of each month.
