17th-century noble palace in the heart of Volterra
Volterra is one of the oldest medieval villages in Tuscany, rich in history and culture.
The genuineness of the village remains intact thanks to the relative seclusion that has limited the development of the historic center, safeguarding the ancient village from the building speculations of the modern era, allowing to keep the original structure complete .
In the historic center one finds this seventeenth-century noble palace built on the remains of an ancient medieval building as demonstrated by its entrance portal.
The Palace is located a short distance from the central " Piazza dei Priori " which takes its name from the imposing "Palazzo dei Priori", the oldest municipal building in Tuscany.
The building is a compact structure articulated on three fronts and structured on three horizontal bands. On the ground floor one finds the entrance with the dining room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms used as a study. Following onto the first floor one can reach a sitting room - hallway, dining room with kitchenette and 3 bedrooms and bathrooms; the staircase leading to the first floor, with a ramp, are in original seventeenth-century marble.
The historic building has perfectly intact and well maintained walls and ceiling decorations. The decorations and frescoes in the rooms change in each room and occasionally extends on the walls. The whole property needs a targeted redevelopment intervention that would highlight the enormous potential to become a period residence full of attraction and charm.
