This magnificent 5 bedroom palazzo which dates back to the 16th Century and where the poet and philosopher Tommaso Crudeli lived in the first part of the 18th century, with spacious Italian style garden, is located in the historic centre of Poppi, directly opposite the famous church of San Fedele dating from the 10th century, close to all amenities and within easy reach of both Florence and Arezzo.
This lovely palazzo with magnificent double height ceilings and many frescoes provides spacious accommodation over 4 floors and is laid out as follows:
Lower ground floor accessible from the rear of the building has a number of rooms as Cantine, the old stable, boiler room and other storage rooms, in total some 7 rooms which has direct access to the garden.
Ground floor: Entrance from Via Cavour which leads into a large entrance room with arched ceilings decorated with a large central fresco which leads you to a further reception room again with arched ceilings right to the corners of the room. A number of further rooms are located on the ground floor including a private chapel, lounge, kitchen with large fireplace, study, and 2 bathrooms as well as other rooms originally servants quarters. From the kitchen stairs lead to a mezzanine level where there is a laundry room and a further two rooms used by the housekeepers.
First floor is reached by a fairly steep staircase where you can find 5 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a lounge on the landing area as well as a number of storage rooms.
Further stairs take you to the loft area, which is currently unused, but provides a further 5 large rooms as well as a number of smaller rooms which could easily be turned into further sleeping accommodation with en-suite bathrooms.
Externally, the palazzo benefits from a large garden which is on two levels, the first level being laid out in typical Italian style with stone edged garden beds with differing plants, numerous trees and stone-built edges with magnificent views over the Casentino valley. The lower part of the garden is just maintained as a field currently but could easily provide a large vegetable garden or even has room for a substantial swimming pool.
This is a magnificent palazzo dating back to the 16th century, with plentiful history and located right in the heart of the old town of Poppi. With a little work, this could be transformed into a chic residence either for personal use or to provide accommodation for the tourist market.
An excellent opportunity.
