If Rome ever had a royal league, it was the Borgheses...
The legendary family arrived in Rome in 1500, soon rising on the ladder of power, with Camillo Borghese, who became Pope Paul V. From there, the influence of this aristocratic lineage only grew, bringing to the Roman Catholic Church cardinals, princes and dukes, of whom some were the largest landowners in the region.
Some of them were in charge of the construction of the Palazzo Borghese and Villa Borghese buildings, while today the villa can be visited by tourists which can enjoy the wonderful family collections of fine art. As for the current Borgheses, the winds of happiness are definitely changing direction. The most famous heir of this lineage is probably Lorenzo, who appears in the ninth season of the TV program The Bachelor.
Not far from the former square and the Spanish Steps, there is another Borghese home, constructed in 1550, recently in the process of fascinating restoration. In the historic house's renovation program, its original architectural details resembling a marble staircase and wooden beams on the ceiling have been fully preserved, but are joined by modernist details, featured across ten interior units, including elevators, central air conditioning and heating, smart applications and services.
The penthouse, spread over two floors and 500 m2, is located on the fourth and fifth floors of the house, includes a roof garden and 360-degree views of the nearby high-fashion neighborhoods and a wide panorama of the eternal city. This apartment in the house of Borghese, after the renovation project, will be placed on the real estate market with a price of 27 million dollars, within the list of Carratelli Real Estate and Luxury Portfolio International of the house, and finished with the brilliant work of the Armani Casa brand, in charge of creating everything from kitchen elements, Essex armchairs, next to Dandy beds and Gardenia benches in the master bedroom.
Inside the duplex, there are three more bedrooms, separate service accommodation, plenty of legacy space and a fully equipped fitness studio, connected to the kitchen filled with gleaming Gaggenau appliances, living and dining areas on the main floor. Above them there is another kitchen with a seating area, a fireplace and a solarium located on the terrace. Additionally, this penthouse comes with one of the most precious items of modern Rome, a parking space.
