Bathed in old-world elegance, this stunning multi-level period apartment was built in 1894 by a Frenchman during the Golden Age when Argentina was one of the richest countries in the world. This opulence is reflected in the sophisticated design and generous lay-out of this residence, as well as in its multitude of original architectural features and furnishings. Enter the property through elaborate wooden doors and find a large marble staircase with ornate iron railings and polished wooden banister; and you will feel like Argentine royalty at the turn of the century (n.b there is NO elevator). Exquisitely furnished with elegant armchairs, gorgeous wooden tables and distinctive local artwork, this apartment perfectly balances the modern with the traditional and exudes a uniquely stylish ambience. Fantastically located in the centre of the classy Recoleta neighbourhood, world class restaurants, cafes, and gourmet food and wine shops are all within easy walking distance, as well as the café-lined Plaza Mitre and the subway on Avenida Santa Fe. Recently renovated by the same architect as the Buenos Aires Art Hotel, the apartment has over 200 sq. metres (2,200 sq. feet) of space and features 15-foot ceilings in the living/dining areas and master bedroom. An open-plan lay out and central atrium also contribute to the airy and spacious feel of this classy three-bedroom residence. Gorgeous antiques, original wooden and tiled floors and period features are complimented by renovations such as the fully-equipped ´American Style´ marble kitchen to give you everything you need for a luxurious stay. The ambience of this spacious apartment seems more like that of a house and a home, and the perfect place to relax at the end of a long day´s sightseeing. The chic living area is lit by large windows during the day and mood lighting once the sun goes down, and leads out onto a private balcony overlooking the street below. The impressive master suite features a king-size bed, large walk-in closet and separate bath, shower and toilet areas as well as impressive mirrors. It also has a private loft with a fully-equipped office and living area with television, DVD player, coffee table, mood lighting and skylight. There is a second bedroom in the loft with 2 twin beds and an en-suite bathroom with shower. There is also a very small bedroom (with bed slightly smaller than a twin) and bath in the former maid’s quarters which could accommodate a 5th guest. For an elegant and classy stay in this historical barrio of Buenos Aires, treat yourself to this dream apartment and live like a King.
Please note on some days when we have a guest checking in and out on the same day, the maid may not finish the cleaning until 4pm, but you can check-in earlier on this understanding.
