The original construction of the building is attributed to Arnolfo di Cambio and the fifteenth century extensions were assigned to Brunelleschi who, at the time, was in charge of the construction of the Cathedral Chapel. Also dating back to this restoration are many indoor areas with cross vaults and lunettes on refined marble corbels; reflecting instead the original medieval building, in the courtyard and in the neighboring areas forte stone wall brackets with octagonal pillars and Gothic shaped capitals can still be found.
The building falls under the guardianship of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and therefore restoration operations have had a strongly conservative impact reflected in the research of original features and materials.
The apartment, on the second floor with lift, covers an area of 150m2 and is charactised by a huge and elegant hall with exquisite views over the old town and a magnificent cross vault ceiling.
It comprises a large double bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, a utility room and main doorway on the entrance floor. There is a furnished loft which can be used as a study or living room and a further double bedroom with its own bathroom on the mezzanine floor.
Each room boasts an exclusive finish, with a long list ranging from parquet to stuccoed walls from railings and staircases hand-made by a blacksmith craftsman to finely restored interior doors with marble jambs, but there are also modern comforts such as security doors, satellite installation, alarm and advanced utility control.
