Good Wednesday morning! A beautiful and unusual apartment in an ancient castle set in the Dolomites region of northern Italy!
This unique and elegant apartment was created within the deconsecrated church of an ancient castle in Ponte di Legno, in Lombardy, Italy. The area is home to gorgeous ski resorts and mainly populated with modern ski chalets. This castle abode would be an unusual and interesting way to live in the area! I’m imagining a professor of archaeology taking up residence to study local medieval artifacts who then stumbles across something unexpected and mysterious, leading to many twists and turns! Who can you imagine living here?
From the listing on Sotheby’s Italy:
This historic property is located in an elegant castle and is surrounded by greenery, just a few steps from the town center. The property represents a peculiar construction, since this apartment has been created inside a deconsecrated church and maintains its unique features and its admirable frescoes and decorations. The apartment consists of a living and dining area, a kitchen made from a porch with floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful tiled stove, a bedroom on the upper floor adjacent to the small bell tower and a bathroom on the ground floor. The furniture is composed of period antiques and adorned with tools related to the rural life of past times. A charm linked to historicity envelops the building located in the centuries-old park where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains, a place of quiet and tranquility, perfect for those looking for a refined corner of mountain paradise.
