The beginning of 2018 we were given a “ Definitive Brief “ to find an apartment in the centre of Trieste for an English family living in Asia.

We visited Trieste in February and and spent several days there meeting many of the local Real Estate Agents. We felt that it was important on this first trip to gain a good understanding of the geography of Trieste and the local real estate market. We then gave details of the brief to three agents who we felt would be able to complete the brief successfully.

Our next two trips were in March and April. The March visit was, primarily, to view properties that the agents felt would satisfy the brief. The April visit was to show the client three properties that we felt were interesting.

The client decided to purchase our first choice, which was a Sq Metre 237.00 office located on the nobile floor of an 18th century listed building in the very centre of Trieste. The address, Via Dante and location, was absolutely perfect. The agent who found the property, Emanuela Perotti, Mazzini Real Estate Srl. was very professional and very focused on meeting the brief.

The office, the space, was in need of a complete renovation, which gave us the perfect opportunity to re design the floor plan. The building is listed so there were, of course, limitations to what we could achieve but we managed to create a beautiful light and open three bedroom apartment with a very large living area and kitchen.

We decided to use a local builder, Davide Favretto, Omnia Costruzioni Srl. and a local Architect, Umberto Wetzl, UW Home. It was an excellent choice, both were a pleasure to work with, very professional and very precise. The project finished on time and on budget and we look forward to working with them again on our next project in Trieste.

We sourced the kitchen and all the furniture, fixtures and fittings, from a local supplier in Trieste, MD Arredamenti. They were recommended to us by the Architect. Their product range was excellent and the installation was completed perfectly.

This has been one of our most interesting briefs and we are very very proud of what we and the team in Trieste have achieved.

We invite you to take a look at some photos which illustrate what was purchased and what was achieved.
