What you should know about this apartment


Amenities and special features of this apartment

In one of the most successful residential transformations in the city we offer for sale a spectacular loft on two levels, characterized by large glass surfaces in the ceiling that create a beautiful light on the large living area.
The historic Palazzo Gravina di Palagonia in the façade is inspired by the Dufornian features of the Gymnasium of the Botanical Garden of Palermo and is part of the noble Palermo villa, built by Salvatore Gravina and Cottone principe of Palagonia, heir of a noble family of Apulian origins present in Sicily since 1300, in which complex besides the palace, also includes the church and the park.

After a careful restoration today we find prestigious residences and on the back a beautiful garden that gives privacy and tranquility. Entering from the hallway with frescoed columns and ceilings, through the comfortable elevator or the suggestive polychrome marble staircase we reach the second floor, past the entrance, we reach the loft, particularly scenic with a cantilevered view into the living room, where we find the kitchen and two large French windows that guarantee a 180 ° view and a wonderful light throughout the day.
Going down to the living room of over 70 square meters with a height of over 8 meters we have two bedrooms with private bathrooms and a very large courtesy bathroom for the living area as well as a dressing room / laundry room.
The apartment is equipped with independent heating and air conditioning system. The property includes a parking space within the condominium area.


Calatafimi - Baida Poggioridente: Location and surroundings of this property

Palazzo Palagonia stands along Corso Calatafimi, once called the street of Mezzomonreale, which connects the historic center of Palermo to Monreale.
In the second half of the nineteenth century, the villa passed from the princes of Palagonia to the Notarbartolo di Sciara and, subsequently, as a matrimonial dowry, to the Tortorici of Raffadali, to whom we owe the coat of arms (insignia of San Giacomo della Spada), present in a fresco of the noble floor. Passed over the years to other owners and destined to disparate uses, it is an important example, with other villas, casene and bagli, of that extra-urban expansion towards Monreale that originated in the Norman era, as it was for the Cuba Castle, the Little Cuba and the Palazzo dello Scibene, places of amusement all in the same area, which was the expression, during the Bourbon viceroyalty, of the fashion of the holiday, when the villas were located outside the city nucleus, mainly along three lines: the first to the south towards Bagheria, the second to the west towards Monreale, the third to the north in the so-called Piana dei Colli.
In 1978 the building was restored to integrate different socio-cultural functions within the building (party headquarters, library, cultural center, editorial office). Now a careful restoration started in 2011, has restored the original destinations of use and enhanced the building and the villa as to the ancient splendours, respecting the architectural and environmental constraints to which it is subjected.
The garden, although considerably smaller than the large park that had been open to the owners of Palazzo Palagonia until the mid-twentieth century, now has a beautiful lawn, parking spaces and is dominated by an impressive ficus magnolioides.
