We are located in Bergamo, one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, in the heart of the marvellous historic town centre, a UNESCO World Heritage site. There is a timeless atmosphere in the streets of the historic town centre, leaving you charmed by the ancient buildings and churches, which have been perfectly preserved over the centuries, as well as the majestic and elegant period monuments.
It is in this context that L’Appartamento sul Chiostro was restored, in one of the most exclusive and prestigious streets of the old town.
Although it is located in a pedestrian zone that is closed to traffic, the property is a stone's throw from the main road, which takes you to the Centre of Bergamo in just a few minutes and continues on to the major towns of Northern Italy, like Milan (45 km) and Brescia (53 km) in just over half an hour, and Verona (115 km) in about an hour and a quarter. These places can also be reached by high-speed rail links.
The nearest airport is undoubtedly Orio al Serio, just a few minutes away (5 km) by car and has connections to the whole of Europe. The airports of Milan Linate (50 km) and Milan Malpensa (90 km) are also within easy reach, respectively just over half an hour and about an hour by car.
Description of buildings
You can get to L'Appartamento sul Chiostro from the heart of the Upper City, through a condominial entrance. In the entrance hall of the building, you will find access to the exclusively owned ancillary room, currently used as an ironing room/storage room.
The apartment is located on the second floor and can also be reached by lift.
Inside, we are greeted by a refined and elegant environment, skilfully restored and furnished with taste, with elements inspired by English style, but with Italian quality craftsmanship.
Facing the entrance is the dining area, bordered on one side by arched windows and on the other side by fitted cabinets and on a third side by an entrance into the designer kitchen with a view of Palazzo Terzi.
To the right of the entrance, the arched windows overlooking the courtyard of the building provide the living area with plenty of natural light. The floor, made from "tavola del Piave" parquet that is handcrafted and waxed by hand, contrasts with the austere original period coffered ceiling. The room is well furnished, with Frau leather armchairs, a stunning five-seater Baxter sofa and furnishing accessories in “cavallino” or pony cow-hide leather. There is a lavish 16th-century, gas operated fireplace, to the right of which a small second bathroom is used as a storage room and, from here, via a small staircase, you can get to the technical room, where the under floor heating and cooling system is located, serving the entire house. The sleeping area is located to the left of the entrance and can be reached through a door that leads to a hallway. It consists of 2 bedrooms, currently used for the children, with a large, shared bathroom with shower, made with Travertine marble and marble inlays, while the master bedroom, with a wardrobe, has its own en-suite bathroom and a whirlpool bath.
Energy efficiency class: D.
The property is in excellent condition, thanks to meticulous restoration work carried out in 2004.
The finishes, both structural and those of the furnishings, were skilfully chosen and are the best available on the market. The use of refined, precious materials, wood, stone and fabrics, makes the property elegant and exclusive.
Usage and potential
Appartamento sul Chiostro is an extremely versatile property: it is ideal as a representative apartment and is also a perfect residence for everyday living. Whichever the case, it has one of the most beautiful views in Italy.
