Happy Bargain Friday! Today I’m dreaming of buying this gorgeous and characterful two-bedroom apartment to restore in Sarzana, Italy – with stunning view of the Gulf of Poets from the terrace!
I love the way this apartment feels like a hidden perch with amazing vantage point of the countryside below. The carvings in the stone ceiling are fascinating and worth preserving – and that terrace is absolutely wonderful. Imagine sunsets, with a glass of wine… I’d love to snap this one up, renovate it, and have it as my Italian pied-a-terre!
From the listing on L’Architrave:
First floor apartment with terrace to restore in a beautiful Ligurian village above ‘Il Golfo dei Poeti’ (the Gulf of the Poets) with views to the sea.
Character apartment to restore set among the narrow cobbled streets of a beautiful hilltop village overlooking the sea.
The apartment is set on the first floor and is one of three apartments in the building. The property is entered into the living room, with original ‘graniglia’ paved flooring. Three steps up lead a bathroom with shower. Another couple of steps up is the kitchen with veranda, where it could be possible to make a good balcony.
There are two bedrooms with a common balcony.
There is a ‘cantina’ (with water, light and outside space). There is also a vegetable garden (‘orto’) of 50 sqm close to the property, included in the sale.
Services are at the property but are not currently connected. The apartment is sold freehold.
