The House of the Hummingbird
In the market town of Santa Flavia, just outside the Sicilian capital of Palermo, Casa Colibrì (‘Hummingbird’) is a simple but beautifully finished one bedroom apartment with private roof terrace. Ideal for holidaymakers on the idyllic north Sicilian coast or workers in Palermo who want to eacape the crowds of tourism or city life, this is a really lovely little property that has been extremely well looked-after.
Indoors, a bright and airy open-plan living area is divided into a kitchenette and lounge by a neat and convenient breakfast bar. The kitchen is tiled with an understated style, and the lounge area is decorated with a full-length frieze and elegant shelfing. A full-length window opens onto a neat balcony on one of Santa Flavia’s main streets. Off the living space on the opposite side, a small but impeccably-furnished bathroom with plenty of light and a huge, open shower with sauna-style boarding.
The bedroom is ample, with fitted shelving units a practical storage solution and tasteful suspended lighting. The design of Casa Colibrì is the work of a celebrated local interior designer and you can see that a professional eye is at work here.
The Perfect Spot to Relax
Up a short flight of stairs, the roof terrace is what, literally and metaphorically, lifts this apartment to the next level of small apartment. From here the panoramic views extend over the rooftops of Santa Flavia to the hills beyond, taking in local landmarks like the Basilica of Sant’Anna and the Art Nouveau Villa Filangeri.
In Easy Reach
This thoroughfare of Santa Flavia contains an array of bars and local shops. Within a five minute walk is the train station, which connects to central Palermo in under twenty minutes. A short walk inland, nearby Bagheria is a medium sized town with everything you might need for day-to-day life, and in the other direction the harbour of Porticello is surrounded by some superb seafood restaurants.
Stylish, practical and convenient, Casa Colibrì would be perfect for a single person, couple or someone looking to buy-to-let.
