bathroom 2

The second bathroom is the same size as the stable, accessed by a funky series of steps via the central cantina, or from the stable through a very low doorway. It has arched ceilings, a beautiful deep-set window with original medieval metal grid, and a view across the valley – or up to the sky when you’re relaxing in the bathtub.

It has a low raised platform where the bath sits (which used to be wine vats), and another shaped floor where the loo and hand basin are.

There’s a big, long work surface that has a useful storage space underneath. There’s a built-in shelf also, and some wall hooks.

This is where the washing machine is stored, too – which means that you don’t hear it at work.

This room, alongside the stable next-door, would make a brilliant self-contained apartment, as it would be very easy to close the narrow stairs that lead up to the central cantina and kitchen. And these two rooms can be accessed directly from the Via Dietro Gli Orti. The super-low doorway between the two rooms would likely want to be raised, but again, this is a relatively simple job, that I can advise on.
