A beautifully restored period property on the main Corso in Modica Bassa. The restoration has been complete, sympathetic and offers an interesting blend between old and new. The property is on the first floor of an 18th century palazzo and covers some 500mq. Entering into a spacious hallway, to the left you find a comfortable salone, with majolica floor, modern fireplace and a curved soppalco which leads to two rooms in the roofspace. From the salone, and facing onto the Corso there are the two rooms of rappresentanza, which have beautiful majolica floors and frescoed ceilings. The third room on the Corso is the master bedroom, again with frescoed ceiling and a tiled floor in majolica and pietra pece.
A modern bathroom with shower, leads onto a single bedroom, which in turn takes you back into the entry hall and the stunning bathroom with double basin and a freestanding bath imported from England, vaulted ceiling and floors in classic cementina.
The dining room also has cementina floors and a modern glass staircase up to the soppalco/study level, and leads onto the kitchen, modern and brand new, and which leads out onto a glazed veranda. A second kitchen lies immediately behind.
A dedicated car parking space is on the ground floor in the courtyard, as well as a little dammuso on the stairs is actually used as a technical room and houses the water cistern.
The restoration has been painstaking, especially the work required for the frescoes and floors, which are now the rightful jewels of the house. The architect in charge of the project inserted the upper levels with gentle curves to not disturb the overall impact of the rooms below. Undoubtedly one of the most prestigious homes in Modica.
