Bormio, Valtellina. In the heart of this ancient town, you can find an old fashion townhouse that useto belong to the noble family De Simoni. Above the main entrance door, you can still see the painting of their coat of arms dated 1677 with an eagle and a monkey holding a branch.
The De Simoni Palace is made of a bricked building,ornate by angular stones and clews. It has a magnificent communal walled garden that was once a “Brolo” – an orchard: a joy for the hosts, the guests and the residents of this stunning property.
The front door is made of carved larch wood with a knocker and awrought-iron bolt. The door frame is hand carved in local green stone.
Once inside you will be welcomed by a wonderful vaulted atrium and staircase with original paintings depicting the local history still hanging onthe walls.
On the first floor of this aristocratic palace there is the penthouse we are selling. Once inside, there is a large vaulted hallway in the typical Bormio style; a rich living room coated in Larch wood that will conjure up ancient atmospheres; a kitchen, three ample bedrooms – also coated in larch wood – and a bathroom.
When looking out of the windows from this warm ancient atmosphere you will enjoy a magnificent and unbeatable panorama of the mountains.
To complete this property there are a big vaulted cellar on the ground floor and two covered parking spaces in a shelter that could be converted into a dwelling located in anadjacent walled garden – different from the communal Brolo – and used by some of the flats.
This is a dream come true, a love at first sight, an object for sophisticated amateurs, an important piece of the history of Bormio and its Valley.
