A careful and meticulous renovation work has transformed two apartments in the historic center of Castagneto Carducci, into a unique and splendid housing unit where modernity and tradition come together.
Everything develops on either side of the central staircase, which rises vertically towards the first floor starting from the ground floor and from the main access door that overlooks the center street. On the right side we find the large kitchen, while on the left side the bedrooms with the bathroom and connected to each other by a comfortable passage under the staircase. The kitchen holds a little surprise, through a wooden door carved into the floor we descend into the cellar, the classic one wrapped in brick, a paradise for wines and traditional Tuscan cured meats.
The stairs, all clad in marble and made even more spectacular by the choreography of lights, take us to the first floor where the right-left pattern is repeated, but with dimensions that are more generous than the lower floor.
All rooms are characterized by wooden ceilings with exposed beams, which make the rooms warm and welcoming, on the right is the large living room with fireplace characterized by an elegant steel border, and further on a room, currently used as a study but which can be converted to a third bedroom at any time.
The result of an intuition, the passage that leads to the bedroom, which is on the opposite side, a cantilevered glass plate on the stairs that gives the sensation of being suspended in space.
It will be a real pleasure to fall asleep and wake up in the double bedroom, a hospitable, intimate and bright space that will surely make those who have the pleasure of visiting it fall in love. Along one side of the room runs a large walk-in wardrobe that will satisfy even the most demanding clothing lovers.
The last room on the floor is the bathroom, here too nothing is left to chance, the designer bathroom fixtures, the large shower with the giant showerhead and the attention to every little detail.
Attention and refinement are in fact two terms that are well suited to this splendid property, where the use of traditional materials such as wood and glass combined with the most modern ones and the skilful organization of the spaces guarantee a liveability out of the ordinary and a joy for the eyes.
To be appreciated also the extreme flexibility, the two floors can in fact be made totally independent, and transformed into two units to separate and represent a return on investment given the high tourist vocation of the area.
