Sumary of House Hunting in Italy: See-Through Floors in Milan for $1.8 Million:
- The three-level, 3,552-square-foot house was converted in the 1990s from an atelier in the rear courtyard of an early 20th-century apartment building, with 15-foot ceilings and large glass panels set between the beams of its wood plank floors upstairs and on the ground floor.
- ”Entry is through the main building, which has 14 apartments.
- The apartment is on Via San Gregorio, an avenue lined with ethnic restaurants, small shops and a boho vibe.
- “The new developments are taking the city to another stage, very much appreciated from international buyers that can find international schools, expat communities and buildings with facilities,” Ms. Girogolo said.
- In the transformed Porta Nuova district, a former industrial area, trees and plants cover the terraces on the Bosco Verticale, a solar-powered twin-tower high-rise.
- Nearby, on the old fairgrounds of the historic city, the mixed-use CityLife redevelopment district includes a winding apartment complex with seven buildings from five to 13 floors, and a twisted 44-story tower designed by Zaha Hadid, among other attractions.
