The property is located in the historical centre of Cremona, a city with a rich history and culture and streets lined with shops, bars and restaurants, known as the birthplace of world-famous violin maker Stradivari.
This is the setting for the newly renovated Appartamento Barocco, located in one of the most exclusive areas of the centre, only a short distance from the cathedral and town square.
The property, with vehicle access, is located in a pedestrianized area with access only for residents, within easy reach of the city's main road network which will take you to the Cremona motorway exit on the A21 in a couple of minutes, connecting you to the main cities in Northern Italy such as Brescia (50 km), half an hour's drive away, and Milan (100 km) or Verona (110 km) in just over an hour.
The closest airports are Bergamo - Orio al Serio (95 km) and Verona (105 km), both easy to reach in just over an hour by car.
Description of buildings
The entrance to the Appartamento Barocco is through a shared entrance in the heart of the city of Cremona, leading onto an internal courtyard, garage and storage area.
The flat, with a total area of approximately 295m2, is located on the first floor and is also served by a lift.
Inside, you will be welcomed by an entrance hall introducing you to the Baroque style, rich in details, mirrors and perfectly executed frescoes and matching antique furnishings. The opulence of the large, main salon makes it idea for a wide range of uses, such as a dining or reception area.
Opposite the entrance, the first corridor leads to the private areas with the main bedroom and ensuite green marble bathroom.
The other two bedrooms and bathroom can be reached through the corridor from the entrance hall or from the main salon. The use of materials such as wood, parquet and stucco creates a noble and elegant atmosphere.
To the left of the entrance, a corridor running parallel to the external balcony leads to the kitchen, with a French window opening onto the 15m2 balcony. The corridor leads onto an accessory area for the apartment, used as an ironing room/storage closet, and at the end a guest area with study, bathroom and mezzanine.
The property is in good condition and, apart from a couple of small repairs, offers a high degree of comfort. The management and maintenance costs are low, thanks to the antique walls which make the building efficient to run without the need for additional renewable energy systems.
The Appartamento Barocco includes the right to use a shared courtyard with access to the exclusively owned, net 24m2 double garage and net 7m2 storage room. On the first floor the apartment also offers a 15m2 balcony running along the facade of the building, accessible from the landing and kitchen.
