Property description

Pass through the iron doors, mount the marble staircase, and enter a world unto its own, into centuries past. This edifice was built in 1899 by a celebrated French architect for the Alvear family and declared a Historic Monument because of its unique design, age and history. Built around three sumptuous gardens, each window faces the enclosed courtyard, a true French Pied-a-Terre.

100 meters built on 3 separate levels with 15 foot ceilings in the Living Room and Bedroom. The loft entrepiso has a separate sitting room and sleeping area for two with a second bathroom. Walk down 3 steps and enter a built-in kitchen with a washer/dryer and a Formal Dining Room/Den with antique Chinese daybed.

Live in this hidden, secret space: a respite from the present and the madness of the vibrant city surrounding us. Wake to sunshine in the gardens and the sound of birds.


Newly renovated and elegantly appointed with exotic woods, Chinese furnishings and Indian silks, a perfect blend of history and todays' most modern convenience.

Located on the border of Recoleta and Barrio Norte, just 5 blocks from the famous Recoleta Cemetery. Within walking distance to the most elegant shopping and restaurants. There are 5 outdoor fruit/vegetable markets and 3 large supermarkets within a two block radius.

Private Spanish and tango lessons can be arranged. Two doormen will assist as concierge for every need and the owner lives in the building. Private car and driver available for airport transportation and touring for a nominal fee.

It will comfortably accommodate 4 persons, however it is not suitable for children or animals.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Recoleta:
Built over 112 years ago, it is the oldest French building in this part of Recoleta. It is rumored that this architect designed a sister building in Paris. It is constructed courtyard style around three gardened patios so all the windows open to the gardens. We are buffered from all the street noise just outside the front entrance, so we live in silence and awaken with the birds.
