Typical Ligurian house in the Ceriale historic centre bought by a young business man with the dream of making two apartments, maintaining and enhancing the original features of the building.
The house reflects the Ligurian traditional characteristics, with the ground floor originally destined to be a commercial shop. It was made out of a wrought of soil and ceilings loft with large wooden beams (ruined by woodworms), very steep stairs, a small mezzanine with vaulted ceilings, a first floor with partially vaulted ceilings and a large attic. The renovation involved the realization of two apartments, one on the mezzanine floor (with a large cellar on the ground floor) and one on the first floor (plus attic). The floors, with the exception of those vaulted, and the roof have been completely replaced with new floors in lamellar wood. Despite having completely renovated plants, tiles, floors and plasters, the structure of the two apartments has remained almost unchanged; on the mezzanine floor there is a bathroom (not present before of the renovation) and an iron staircase that allows easy access to the apartment from the ground floor.
