Wear and tear
These apartments were probably once the height of luxury and do have a great deal of potential. But have not been maintained to keep them at a luxury level and the wear and tear is starting to show.
The once white leather sofas are a little grubby, the plinths on the kitchen cabinets were damaged, the fittings in the bathroom have broken at some stage leaving just the wall fixings, the TV in the bedroom has been removed from the wall, leaving sockets and replaced by random pictures of venice. Altogether just a little neglected.
However the apartments are extremely well situated and the views over the city and bay are stunning (views of the top of nearby businesses not so stunning).
Could be wonderful with some care and attention to detail.
