Recoleta apartment description

Ideally located in one of the most sought after sections of the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires, this 3 bedroom, 3 bath penthouse apartment is housed in a 1920/s French style building, complete with doorman and handsome first floor garden. This handsome building is located just a block and a half from the famed Alvear Palace Hotel and two blocks from the Palacio DuHau as well as the Buenos Aires Design Center and Recoleta's Cemetry.

Your private elevator whisks you to your penthouse apartment-- only to be accessed by you or your guests—as no one else has access to “your“ floor. There is a lovely private reception hall just off the elevator, featuring unique canopy lighting and a floor to ceiling gold gilt mirror as well as a watercolor painting by well known Argentinean artist, David Heynemann.

Guests are also treated to housekeeping once a week .

Living Room/Salon: Immediately to the left as you enter this light filled space one observes a lovely watercolor by famed Argentinean artist by Bruno Venier. The salon is anchored by a beautiful French-style gas fireplace on one end and on the other by generous French doors leading to a lovely garden terrace, with views of the River Platte, this large (325 square feet) space is a most sophisticated but comfortable space ,punctuated by the sleek, sparkling white floors and subtle custom carpet. Decorated in tones of taupe and linen with accents of aqua and coral this space truly welcomes the guest with a vivacity and a degree of luxuriousness rarely found in even the
most high end luxury residences. Every antique, piece of art and accessory has been carefully selected by the Owner’s design team – a team that has furnished some of the finest residences in Europe and throughout the United States.

Reading and Dining Area: Another generous space of approximately 300 square feet this area is bordered by an elegant floor to ceiling bookcase that displays the Owners’ collection of rare books ,crystal decanters, glass sculptures and other objects d’art, displayed around the oil painting by well know artist M. Sporis. The reading area in front of the bookcase has two matching French Berger chairs,with a comfortable ottoman with memorable scenes from Paris and duel reading/ floor lamps.

Near the second set of French doors leading to the balcony (which is filled with fragrant jasmine and lavender and constantly rotating flowering plants)is a whimsical brightly painted “merry-go-round horse,” anchored on a patinated peragimino suitcase from the 1920’s.

The dining room table is a Swedish round which can be expanded to an oval and can easily accommodate 8 dinner guests. The dining room chairs have been upholstered in fabrics that tie together the rooms colors and sophistication.

Family Room: Adjacent to the Living Room /salon is the Family Room which can be privatized with its pocket doors. Another generous room, this features a large flat screen TV as well as DVD and audio system, complemented by surround sound for viewing and listening enjoyment. This room can comfortably seat 8 guests but the contemporary couch also doubles as a full size sofa bed (and,thus, provides a 4th bedroom). The club chairs are antique Art Deco from an aristocratic home in Buenos Aires and have been combined with an enveloping white contemporary rug, that contrasts nicely with the original parquet floor. The set of four ottomans provide additional seating as well as great “put up your feet” lounging. The elegant cabinet that hides all the electronics boasts beautiful inlaid woods and superb workmanship.
