An emblem of 18th-century architectural elegance, this classical palace is proudly situated in the historical heart of Oria. Encapsulated within a private courtyard garden, the property also includes additional units annexed to its ground floor.
Crafted in the latter part of the 18th century, the palace extends over two floors and is distinguished by two original sundials gracing the left and right sides of its balcony.
Upon entering the grand entrance hall, a stairway ushers you to an apartment on the first floor, accessible via two separate doors. This single-level apartment is generously spread over 180 square meters, comprising nine rooms, the majority of which feature traditional vaulted ceilings. The historic charm is further emphasized in the old sitting room, which proudly displays original stencil-decorated ceilings and walls.
Leading off the sitting room and an adjacent room, a stone balcony overlooks the façade, safeguarded by original wrought iron railings. From here, enjoy vistas of Oria's vibrant cathedral dome, or gauge the time of day from the antique sundials.
A private garden retreat, spanning approximately 200 square meters, can be accessed from one of the rooms. Providing a secluded spot to unwind, this garden also offers independent access from a side street, facilitating alfresco entertainment without disruption to your living quarters. Preserving historical elements, the garden also houses an old stable, once home to the family's horse.
An additional staircase ascends to the roof terrace, which presents panoramic views over Oria's historical centre, including the medieval castle, cathedral, and numerous surrounding churches. This levelled terrace provides an ideal spot for a rooftop lounge, complete with an outdoor bar and a plunge pool.
Included in the sale are two additional ground-floor units, each with independent access from a side street and a potential connection to the palace garden. The first unit, on the upper level, comprises a spacious room, a small kitchen, and an additional room, convertible into a bathroom, totalling 53 square meters of net space. Access to the second unit's roof terrace is also available.
The second unit is larger, comprising two expansive rooms, two bathrooms, and a mezzanine, totalling approximately 90 square meters.
The property also includes a basement cellar and a storage room of about 35 square meters.
Preserving original features untouched for decades, this property requires comprehensive renovation to restore its former glory. The palace can serve as a private residence with additional rentable units or can be converted into a luxury B&B, potentially supported by European grants covering most purchase and renovation costs.
This palace offers an unrivalled opportunity for those who've dreamt of owning or living in an authentic 18th-century palace. It's a unique and irreplaceable treasure not to be missed.
