This spacious apartment covers approximately 200 m² on the first floor (Piano Nobile) of a building with fifteenth century origins. Constructed originally for the aristocratic Massangioli family (who give their name to the small piazza it shares with a baroque church), ownership passed to the church and eventually to the present owners who embarked on an extensive reconstruction that was completed in April 2009.
A large living room with vaulted ceiling and a large fireplace gives access to a dining area and a kitchen also with a (functioning) fireplace and a separate dining area. Conveniently near the kitchen, there is a sunny terrace of 70 m² with an ancient well.
There are two bedrooms with superb views over the countryside and two bathrooms. The main bathroom is really luxurious with a large sunken bath.
All rooms are light, spacious and well-proportioned.
There is a storage area on the ground floor.
The accommodation is approached by a short flight of stairs from the piazza.
The restoration has been carried out with great sensitivity and traditional materials have been used throughout. The floors are terracotta or tiled. The heating, plumbing and electrical systems have all been renewed. New hardwood door and window frames and shutters.
The location is superb. The palazzo is in the heart of the tranquil hill town of Buccianico which all the facilities, yet is only 7 minutes drive from Chieti and 15 minutes from Pescara with its international airport and long sandy beaches.
The views from this elevation are extraordinary, to the Gran Sasso mountains in the West and to the Adriatic to the East.
