Imagine living in the heart of Rome, your magnificent apartment situated between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di Spagna, your private terrace facing Trinità de' Monti (Villa Borghese) with exquisite Roman sunlight cascading over the rooftops of the Historic Center.
Custom designed, inside and out, for an American family by well known Architect Clemente Busiri Vici, Passeggiata di Ripetta is a residence created for luxurious comfort and incomparable entertaining. Every detail of this 300 sq. meter (3,229 sq. ft.), 4-bedroom, 4-bath masterpiece has been considered for the quality of the commissioned work, which is unrivaled, its refined beauty, as well as, the superb functionality of the space.
The main entrance is on the 4th floor, and the service entrance is accessible from the 3rd floor, integrated into the home by an interior spiral stairway connecting the two floors.
Entering the main foyer, with its custom appointed stone flooring (pietra incerta), an artisan-set patchwork of creamy, smooth hand-selected marble and stone with a dark green marble border, one is immediately taken with the grandeur and architectural significance of this stunning residence. The minimalist living room is designed for both elegant entertaining and intimate gatherings, with enormous windows and sun lit views. Architectural lighting controls offer dimming for evening. A powder bathroom is conveniently situated nearby. There is a custom designed oak and glass partition between the living room and terrace-view office or studio, which can be opened for parties. Diagonal-laid oak floors glow with honeyed warmth in the formal dining room, bedrooms and bookshelf-lined hallway. The view from the kitchen, dining room and master bedroom is of the Tiber River and St Peter's Dome when the foliage changes.
A highlight of the apartment is the state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen, featuring a stunning white marble island with Boffi custom-built cabinetry, top-quality appliances, marble countertops and modern black stone flooring.
Finishes and fixtures throughout the home were selected for their understated beauty, including the Veneziana wall treatment in many of the rooms, gorgeous light fixtures and sconces, central air conditioning, double paned glass windows, and electric window blinds in the living room and studio. The separate private quarters are comprised of a master bedroom suite with pretty tree line views, an en-suite marble bathroom with travertine counter tops, shower and flooring and his and her walk in closets with custom built wardrobes. There are two additional bedrooms with built in wardrobes, delightful views over the Roman rooftops and one bathroom with marble flooring, countertop and a mosaic tiled bathtub.
The lower level consists of a laundry room, playroom or exercise room, staff quarters, full bath and storage. There is temporary parking in the building and a Garage a few steps away.
With its flawless combination of tranquility, seclusion and heart-of-the-city convenience, the acquisition of this sprawling apartment affords a marvelous opportunity for the most discerning buyer to acquire a residence of unparalleled luxury in the heart of Rome.
