Property description

A N - I N T E R E S T I N G - A L T E R N A T I V E:

We are offering you the possibility of enjoying a home once you arrive in Buenos Aires. If you need it for one week or more, our apartment (1030 sq. feet, 96 m2) with 3 bedrooms, accommodating up to 6 people is an excellent choice!

The building is a vintage residential building, 8 stories high, built in the 1930's, elegant & in very good condition, with genuine old world charm. It has 2 elevators, broad comfortable staircases and ample lobbies in each floor and in the entrance to the building.

Downstairs, in the same building, you will find a very cozy and wellknown cafee and restaurant: LIBE, practicaly open on a 24/7 basis, with excellent quality food (fantastic croissants!), reasonable prices and dayly newspapers with the typical vienese spirit. It offers excellent meals or snacks at any time. Very very recommended!

Both rooms are furnished with brand new furniture of the best quality, while decorated and illuminated in modern style, combined with some family souvenirs from Vienna, Austria. Relax with a library with classical books in English and German.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: This apartment was the place where my brother and I grew up. Later on, when we had our own families, we moved out, but were only too conscious about what a special place we had been living, in spite that in our younger years we took it for granted to live in such a top location, without being aware that we were very privileged. In this apartment we spent all our school and university years, and still today our friends remember it in a very special way. It has been fully refurbished by a well known architect, but due to some original books and furniture from Vienna, it still maintains that unique european style and atmosphere.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Staying in Libertad 1693 gives you some very special advantages which seldom are found in one single propriety: it is a very classy category building with ample staircases and halls, confortable lifts, where mostly upper midle class families live. It is 30 meters away from Patio Bullrich, the most fancy and luxurious mall in the city, and at 5 to 10 minutes walk from most destinations downtown. If you need a taxi, just coming our of the building, you can flag down the first taxi coming down the stree, which should not take more than a few minutes. And, last not least, it is in a top security area, where you can go out or come back at any time of the day and the night without any safety problem. A BEAUTIFUL BOOK, 700 PAGES THICK, BRILLANTLY EDITED IN GLOSSY PAPER, HAS BEEN PUBLISHED IN JANUARY 2010: 'LIVING IN DREAM CITIES' BY LOFT PUBLICATIONS. THERE, YOU CAN FIND ON PAGES 158, 164, 165, 166 AND 167 AMAZING FOTOS OF THIS, OUR APARTMENT IN RECOLETA, SHOWING IN FULL DETAIL THE DIFFERENT ROOMS, THEIR FURNISHING, FURNITURE AND DECORATION. ONLY 2 OTHER APARTMENTS IN BS. AIRES WERE SELECTED AND DISTINGUISHED TOGETHER WITH OUR PLACE, TO REPRESENT THE QUALITY LIVING STYLE OF THIS VIBRANT CITY.
