Amenities and special features of this apartment

In the quiet setting of the pedestrian center of Novara, which has always been a border town with a Lombard soul and a Piedmontese body, as well as a highway crossroads only 20 km from Malpensa international airport, 40 km from Milan and Lake Maggiore and Orta, and 90 km from Turin, stands an attractive corner palace with light colors and a neat appearance. Once a tower to the west of the ancient Roman then medieval castrum, it was transformed into a mansion in the early 19th century, as it still reveals itself to passers-by after the roof and facade renovation carried out in 2022. Here, on the highest floors, lies a luxurious apartment of about 350 square meters, arranged on three living levels plus cellars, with a private entrance and elevator, although within a small condominium complex, shrouded in the quiet of the many small restaurants, delicatessens and high-fashion stores that, seen from above, make the medieval quarter resemble a small Brera. From the ground-floor entrance, using either the wide private stairs or the convenient elevator, we reach a large openspace loft that floats under high ceilings with original exposed wood beams that, in turn, flirt with a loft now used as a billiard room with parquet floors, as does the entire living room below. Squinting at a ceramic-floored terrace adjacent to the loft, and past the rear laundry room overlooking the dining room, we climb up to the quaint rooftop terrace to enjoy the striking Novara skyline while enjoying a sunset aperitif or candlelight dinner, or to sunbathe among the rooftops in total privacy. In fact, the building is built on the highest point of the city, once a hill about 150 meters above the Po Valley, and from this privileged observatory, one is enraptured by the astonishing view of the Sforza Castle, Dome and Antonellian Cathedral, framed, on clear days, by the entire snow-capped Alpine arc: a real treat for the eyes that the owner had cleverly designed at the time of the first renovation dated 1992. The living area below consists of several spaces around the large living room that seems designed for parties and dances, with a large, fully functioning fireplace, a 14th-century column and four large windows that allow light to flood the space during the day and the quiet darkness of the top floor to lull it at night. A large fitted kitchen, two convenient closets, a vestibule, a generous dining room with a checkerboard marble floor and a guest bathroom complete the floor. The downstairs sleeping area consists of a master bedroom with a 14th-century period coffered ceiling, mahogany feather molded walk-in closet and en suite bathroom with generous Jacuzzi tub; a second double guest bedroom equipped with a bathroom with shower in addition to an almost secluded wing with its own entrance, consisting of a small sitting room asleep on a tiny inner courtyard and a corridor that, past a third bathroom also with shower, ends its run on a third large bedroom designed for children, teenagers or servants. The apartment has an independent heating system, perimeter alarm with internal cameras in all rooms, on the elevator and on the entrance from the street, air-conditioning in almost every room and three security doors. The billiard table, the very long 10-seat dining table and some interior artwork will be sold by the owner only separately at the explicit request of the buyer.

Further Properties: Location and surroundings of this property

Capital of Piedmont's easternmost province, 101 kilometers from Turin and 50 from Milan, Novara enjoys an extremely strategic location also facilitated by the presence of important infrastructure such as Milan Malpensa International Airport, the highway network and high-speed trains.
An easily accessible land, where one breathes a particular atmosphere characterized by the mix of Piedmontese rigor and Milanese liveliness.
A city on a human scale, where traditions and history meet in a historic center that resembles a 19th-century living room, dominated by the soaring dome of San Gaudenzio, a masterpiece by Alessandro Antonelli.
In the historic center, you can relax with a stroll through the shopping streets or enjoy a coffee break or perhaps a typical Piedmontese dinner in the cafes and various restaurants located in the pedestrian zone.
If you are a lover of cultural events, on the other hand, you can visit the Castle of Novara that periodically hosts important art exhibitions or enjoy a pleasant evening at the Coccia Theater.
A city squeezed between a strip of land and rice fields between the Sesia and the Ticino rivers. Here, in a glare of sunshine that in summer seems to make so much noise as it is intense; in a dimension that in autumn and winter is charged with suggestion, stretches the Novara plain mottled by rice fields and ancient farmsteads framed by poplar groves swaying in the breeze.
Behind them the curving hills of wine and castles, and further up the evocative silence of Lake Orta and the bright reflections of Lake Maggiore.
The horizon is closed by the Alps with the perennial glaciers of Monte Rosa.
