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. All new electrical wires are pulled throughout the house. There are new radiators. Some new windows and 2 partially finished bathrooms.

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 has 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, the current owners has suggestions if wanted? 

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 layouts.

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. Pietrasanta has all the beauty and charm that we all associate with Italy. A square with restaurants, gelato shops, antiques, fabric stores, art galleries and clothes/shoes etc.

There are several grocery stores down in Pietrasanta, but also one up in Cappezzano Monte. In Cappezzano Monte there is also a restaurant, a butcher shop, school and produce shop. All within walking distance from the house.

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.

More pictures to come after Easter! 

There are also a lot more drawings and photos, but it will not fit on the site. Let me know if you want to see more and I will email it to you.
