A Balinese-themed apartment that occupies what was once a theatre space. It sounds too charming to be true. But just look at those photos. We love the owner’s commitment to vision here, which makes for a totally unique property.
The mix of materials – wood, granite, marble, steel and brick – works beautifully, but it’s the Crittal-style windows that stand out. They lend a hip, post-industrial feel to the place, which works in harmony with its location in Trastevere (Rome’s coolest neighbourhood).
A special mention should go to the kitchen dining table, a single slab of oak that cuts across the breadth of the space. It works beautifully with the much sharper lines of the professional-level kitchen and, indeed, the various pieces of exotic art about the place.
But the unique selling point of this four-bedroom loft has to be its spa, which comes complete with a jacuzzi and traditional sauna. You can accommodate all eight of your guests for a well-being session before relaxing outside on your own beach-club terrace.
