The context in which this property is inserted is truly unique: in the center of Modena, an elegant historic building overlooking the park Pertini and the avenues of the center.
The palace, called Sandonnino, belonged in the past, the family of the same name Sandonnini. Important people in the history of Modena with some exponents who held in the past, influential positions, such as Mayor and Podestà of the city and Senators of the Kingdom.
The result of a careful restoration carried out in 1990, the building takes us on a real plunge into the past. The imposing main entrance, with vaulted frescoed ceilings and wrought iron gates let us imagine the splendor of the past, which we still find today in the office that is offered for sale. At the m.oment it is an office, but it is well suited to be transformed into a beautiful apartment.
It occupies part of the main floor, the first floor and has 10 rooms, plus two bathrooms, for a commercial area of over 200 square meters. Very bright and with several large windowed surfaces overlooking Viale Martiri, the beautiful inner courtyard and the majestic buildings of Mascherella street.
Frescoes and stuccoes are present in almost all the rooms, in the main ones they occupy the whole ceiling, in the secondary ones they are simple embellishments. Two red stone fireplaces dominate the two largest rooms, harmoniously inserted between the windows.
The Venetian flooring with inserts in red ammonitico, runs from one room to another creating an effect of continuity and is interrupted in the middle of the apartment to allow you to climb the 4-5 steps that characterize the second part of the same slightly higher, where we also find the two bathrooms.
The large interior spaces, are in excellent condition, and the independent system provides both heating and cooling of the entire property.
As in all noble houses of the past, there are several entrances, three, one of which, probably in ancient times the one reserved for servants, is characterized by a stone spiral staircase. The main one, on the other hand, served by an elevator, is a stairwell of absolute elegance and austerity, which takes us to the ground floor, where the splendor of the ancient owners are also reflected in the glass window and lead, yellow and bright green.
The building is developed around an internal square paved with cobblestones that makes us discover a useful and very rare surprise in the old buildings … a large private garage on the ground floor with a convenient access in addition to a useful condominium space converted to storage bicycles.
For those looking for a large representative office or as mentioned an apartment full of ancient personality, it could be the ideal solution.
