This serene and spacious rental is actually a part of one of the oldest family-owned heritage buildings in Sololaki. With superb ambiance and location that resonate and contain the rich history of the city’s collective memory, it is a truly outstanding property.
The building features a classic Tbilisi courtyard with connecting balconies and clay tile roofing executed with ancient Georgian technique, another balcony overlooking the main street fills the rooms with natural, soft light, and convenience stores, bakeries, and gourmet restaurants are right across the street to help you save time on daily errands and enjoy your unique stay instead.
The building is a sample of a secular building from the early 19th century. From the urban planning point of view, it is important for the formation of the historical-architectural type of the district, which occupies a dominant role in the existing historical development, and has a high architectural-artistic value. The building has 2 floors and according to the planning structure, it is an Anfilad, gallery pile. Morphologically it is a closed yard type. Georgian brick is used as a construction material. The wooden gable roof is covered with tile, partly with tin sheets. Getting to the roof is possible through the attic window. The facades of the building bear the stylistic features of the Renaissance and the Tbilisian balcony house. The central facade leading to its street side is treated with an asymmetrical facade composition and is an arrangement of rhythmic openings (windows and doors). Two wooden balconies are noteworthy. One relatively small balcony is distinguished by wood-cutting details, massive wooden mounts, elaborate columns, and lavgardan processing. The second, larger balcony features a wooden railing, as well as elaborate columns and massive mounts. A remarkable architectural-artistic element is the second-floor windows decorated with profiled archivolts. The facade is plastered and painted, though in places the plaster has fallen off and a brick formation can be seen. The small plasticity of the facade is interesting, with elements such as beams, profiled cornice, and decor. The side facades of the house are represented by unplastered bricks and the contemporary or later cut windows of the building. The Renaissance Palazzo-type windows on the side facade, brick cornices, and the attic front are notable. The house has two entrances, their interiors are plastered and painted. Wooden stairs and wooden railings deserve to be mentioned when visiting. Also attractive is the plain decor of the wooden entrance doors and the metal openwork front. From the entrance, it is possible to go out into the courtyard. The courtyard is decided by a composition of wooden gallery balconies, some built-in or glazed (mostly on the first floor level). The balconies are distinguished by their wooden railings, with wooden pillars, capitals, and cornices. In the yard, there is a wooden staircase to the second floor. The yard of the house is asphalted and can be reached from the street through the entrance. The building has an arched basement, its walls are made of Georgian bricks, the ceiling height is approximately 3-3.2 m and it can be entered from the side street.
The facades are defined by a combination of classicist elements and wooden balconies. With its look and architecture, it echoes the dwellings of Kala and Isani.
