Property details

Casa Sansepolcro is situated in the heart of the medieval centre of Sansepolcro in Tuscany. This beautiful town was the birth place of Piero Della Francesca (1415-1492) who painted The Resurrection, which can still be admired today in the museum. This is only possible due to the intervention, at huge risk of a court martial, by Captain Anthony Clarke who saved the town from allied bombing in 1944. Therefore, apart from the stone tower in the main square, the town was virtually untouched. This all came about because Captain Clarke had read an essay by Aldous Huxley describing a fresco painted by Piero Della Francesca as the greatest picture in the world. The power of art cannot be underestimated. Captain Clarke knew this and saved this renaissance town from what would have been almost total destruction. The town today boasts a boisterous city-centre with excellent shops, restaurants, wine bars and a twice weekly market. It is a truly beautiful medieval town in eastern Tuscany. Sansepolcro is only 30 minutes from Arezzo and 90 minutes from Florence.Casa Sansepolcro has been meticulously restored with an intelligent and creative eye for detail. All original features have been restored and Casa Sansepolcro is truly a stunning testament to 500 years of developing architecture.Casa Sansepolcro covers an area of 350 sqm over five floors and offers four bedroom suites with private bathrooms with the possibility to create a fifth. There is a cantina on the ground floor and a roof terrace (an extremely rare commodity). Presently Casa Sansepolcro is run as a boutique residency but could, quiet easily, be returned to a private home. New heating systems and the most expensive wood burning stoves, double glazing and sound proofing makes this a totally unique opportunity for the incoming purchase/s to continue the business or live a most amazing life in this historic building.
