Transforming a medieval tower with its massive stone walls ranging from 2 meters at the basement to 3 meters at the top floor into a characteristic 10-level living space has been not an easy architectural challenge. The spaces inside the tower have been created thanks to a careful restoration with respect for the historical value of the building. In fact, the architects responsible for the project have left the original structure intact while working mainly on material recovery. Every single space has been designed to bring the tower back to life.
The property is divided into 10 levels (5 sqm to 8 sqm each) and can accommodate up to 4 people. On the first floor you’ll find a peculiar kitchen provided with all the comforts and distinguished by wood beamed ceilings and original terracotta floors. A mezzanine furnished with table and benches and overlooking the kitchen is a perfect reading space. The fourth floor is also furnished with a small table and chairs. A bedroom on the fifth floor has 2 adjoined single beds (80x190), while the second bedroom upstairs has a French bed for 2 people (120x190). The property has two bathrooms, a bathroom with a shower and a service toilet situated respectively on the third and on the ninth floors. An iron staircase with handrail leads to the top floor where a splendid open-air terrace with a 360 ° view over San Gimignano is situated. The terrace is equipped with table and chairs for exclusive dinners at 40 meters height which can be easily set up thanks to the the second kitchen located on the tenth floor.
A unique opportunity to stay in a historic residence within a singular context. Undoubtedly an unconventional choice, ideal if you are looking for something different.
The property might not be suitable for small children due to the presence of numerous levels and steps.
