Recoleta condo description

Indoor Space: 110 m2 (1184 ft2)
Outdoor Space: 40 m2 (430 ft2)
Max.Capacity:

This charming one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Recoleta is an excellent choice for your stay in Buenos Aires. Located on one of the city's most elegant avenues, the apartment faces the back of the building and is thus, extremely quiet.
The truly special element is a private garden patio adjacent to the living room, where high walls and ambient lighting create an excellent space for dining, cocktails or answering emails. When you do head out, you'll find that the location is incredibly central. As an Argentine friend said to me, 'If you were going to put a pin on the most desired location in Buenos Aires, it would be on this apartment.' Countless shops and restaurants are right outside your door. The famed Recoleta Cemetery as well as the city's finest hotels are a few minutes walk away.
The space is both comfortable and modern. It features marble-accented bathrooms, a fully outfitted, granite finished kitchen and a large sofa area that is perfect for relaxing. The bedroom is an ensuite with a king bed and also has a small external patio. The living and dining area is spacious and huge (especially by Argentine standards!)

Recoleta is adjacent to several neighborhoods including Palermo and Plaza San Martin, both of which are a short taxi ride away.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: I design leather and fur clothing and handbags in Buenos Aires. Because of that, I am there a lot and wanted a home base for myself when I am in Buenos Aires. You will feel at home here. From the wedgwood china to the extra comfortable bed, this apartment is definitely outfitted to be the most enjoyable experience for both you and me!

                          Why the Owner Chose Recoleta:
                          As one of my Argentine associates said to me, if you were putting a pin on a map of Buenos Aires, targeting the very best location, it would be my apartment. It is quiet, yet close to absolutely everything. You will walk the city from this location. The neighbourhood is thriving and alive with more restaurants and shops than you can possibly want, but safe and secure.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          People are astounded when they see the garden that is part of this apartment. Two complete walls are windows to the garden, making the whole apartment airy and open. I normally leave the doors wide open, allowing the breezes to flow through the apartment. Since we are at the back of the apartment, the most common noise is that of the birds singing. To make it complete, the location simply cannot be beat! Restaurants and shops abound right outside the door. If you don't want to walk, taxis are easy and plentiful, while the subway is just down the street.
