Beautiful and bright apartment with garden, in the heart of the historic centre of Monopoli. Located inside an ancient palace the apartment, restored, has two entrances, a citrus garden with a small pool. All rooms have the characteristics barrel vaults. In the main bedroom there is a magnificent fresco with grotesque motifs from the eighteenth century from which the property takes its name.
This property is the ideal choice for those looking for:
– the seduction of the alleys of an ancient medieval town in Puglia;
– an ancient and charming property;
– a property to income with summer rentals.
The main apartment, of about 100 square meters, is located on the first floor of an ancient building, is spread over a single level and has been recently renovated with a careful architectural intervention that, taking advantage of the heights of the three large rooms, has skilfully combined the ancient architecture of the property with the needs of contemporary life.
From the entrance door there is the living room, characterized on the left by the yellow wooden dividers that surround the living area, topped by a loft that houses the dining area. On the right, light grey walls surround the sleeping area, surmounted by a double loft room where there is a study area and a double bed. The sleeping area, which is accessed by two symmetrical doors, is developed in a bathroom, two single bedrooms, a sitting room with balcony and a double bedroom on the loft room.
The living area, surrounded by yellow, consists of a storeroom, a large bathroom, a kitchen partially exposed and a dining corner overlooking the private garden.
A further sleeping area, characterized by light green wooden walls, houses a double bedroom surmounted by a very refined fresco with grotesque motifs, probably from the eighteenth century, with delicate geometric and naturalistic decorations that reproduce festoons, birds and deities. In the center of the ceiling, two sweet sirens holding a garland give the name to the property.
From the corridor adjoining to the bedroom, which has the glass ceiling to allow the view of the beautiful frescoed vault, an internal staircase leads to the ground floor where there is a bright mini-apartment, about 40 square meters, consisting of a large room with a barrel vault, a kitchenette, a bathroom and a cellar, of about 18 square meters. The mini-apartment has an independent access door from the hall of the building.
At the first floor, from the balcony of the living area a flight of stairs leads to the garden, a fragrant citrus grove of about 60 square meters, where there is a small pool, a dining area and a relaxation area.
At the end of the garden there is a second entrance overlooking a quiet street in the historic centre.
The property is equipped with heating in all rooms.
