Casa Galle

The house is built in 1776 and has been used as a luxury condominium consisting of 3 apartments.
The house used to be owned by 3 families, but now it is owned by 2 architect partners in Norway.
It is located in a garden as shown on the situation plan. There is also a smaller house on the property which can be turned into living quarters for a care taker.
From the building authorities in the city there is a verbal permission given to create 4 parking places on the roof of that house with direct access from the street.
It is possible to move the main entrance and give access from the street coming in on the second level (first floor)

As it can be seen from the plans, it is possible to create 2 swimming pools, one on the front and one in the back.

The house has been partially renovated on the inside and on the outside.
Outside the house has been given a new ceramic tile roof. There has also been installed new copper gutters that are pretty eye-catching.
Inside, almost all the ceilings have been worked on and looks like the originals.
The floors are partly ceramic tiles, and we believe these are the original tiles.

The top apartment has a unique look, and has stairs going to a studio at the very top of the roof. It will be possible to create a roof terrace with a fantastic view overlooking Pietrasanta and the Ocean.
(shown in plan)
The 2 apartments below can be planned in different ways, and there is also possible for those two apartments to have balconies on the front façade.

The basement (entry floor) is the most fascinating area of all the floors, because of the thick, brick walls, with amazing arches and an interesting layout.
With the right interior work this will be an amazing living space.

The house is really one of a kind and comes with so many possibilities.
It sits in the middle of this hillside town of Cappezzano Monte, ca 300m over the sea level and overlooking the very creative town of Pietrasanta.

It is, off course, possible to make this in to a single-family home with all kinds of modern amenities.

The present owners can offer architectural and professional building assistance from local firms as well as a budget for a total make over.
