Roma, Lazio, Italy
Our family home is a rare oasis in the heart of Rome, it measures 90 square metres and provides total seclusion and silence because it is located on a pedestrian road and it is surrounded by a private 70 square metre lush garden and covered by a 27 square metre roof terrace. It is an ideal home for research, writing and entertaining. All the rooms, except for the bathrooms and kitchen, open onto the private garden. Located between Trastevere, the Gianicolo and the Vatican it is within walking distance from Rome's major libraries and archives (the Vatican Archive and Library, the Archivio di Stato, The Hertziana Library etc.); it is also within walking distance from Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, Campo de' Fiori, the Pantheon and Santa Maria in Trastevere. Public transport is within 3 minutes’ walk as are local food shops and a supermarket, post-office and banks are all within 10 minutes' walk. The house is flooded with light and has two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes (a master bedroom with a double-bed and second room with a small queen size-bed and an en-suite bathroom). The extremely spacious open plan living and dining room boasts huge windows onto the garden and is perfect for entertaining; the large office with its glass sliding doors opening onto the garden, and large bookshelves, is ideal for quiet study. The small kitchen is fully equipped (including a dishwasher) and a pantry, with a washing machine, provides additional storage space. The main bathroom has a tub. There is also a piano, a record and cd player, a TV, a printer, fast wifi throughout and independently controlled heating. The master bedroom and open plan living and dining area have wooden flooring, and the large office and second bedroom have 'cotto' tiles. The house is beautifully and lovingly furnished throughout. The large and lush garden and large terrace are well appointed (thanks to our wonderful gardener whose services are included) and are fully furnished with tables, chairs, loungers and large sun umbrellas for you to enjoy and entertain friends in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The house is ideal for a couple and/or a couple with 1 child. Cleaning (3 hours weekly) is included in the price and more can be negotiated –albeit at your expense. Due to severe allergies, please note that, unfortunately, dogs/cats are not permitted: sorry!
