Liberdade I - 6-bedroom apartment in glamorous early 20th century building
Located next to the 'Portuguese Champs Elysées' - Avenida da Liberdade - this apartment is perfect for those who like tranquil surroundings and a touch of class and sophistication provided by branded stores, top-end restaurants and elegant streets. Right in the middle of central Lisbon, this spacious 6-bedroom apartment with a bow window and a separate dining room is ideal if you fancy the comfort of feeling at home.
Space, comfort and class define an apartment situated in one of the most impressive buildings in a street parallel to Avenida da Liberdade. Built in the Belle Époque style, with bow windows, a lift and beautiful tiles in the lobby, it’s easy to feel like you’re in Brussels or Paris, famous for their Art Nouveau architecture. The spacious living room has tall windows with lovely painted details and an unusual bow window (these are very rare in Lisbon), which looks onto buildings from the 30s and 40s. Particularly striking is the bow window area, which has beautiful stucco decorated ceilings. There is a separate dining room with a table for 12. Bedrooms are attractive and colorful and include white laced curtains. The bathrooms have been renovated, as has the fully equipped kitchen.
Avenida de Liberdade is the most sophisticated and expensive avenue in Lisbon. Defined by a combination of Belle Époque and modern buildings as well as many leafy trees, here you can find stores of brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Carolina Herrera, Gucci, Cartier and others. 5-star hotels and top-end restaurants complete the description of an Avenue where, in the 19th century, Portuguese high society loved to walk, greet people of similar status, talk business and flirt. Yet, the area is also home to local grocers and shops as well as small, inexpensive and rather good restaurants.
Located parallel to this avenue, the apartment is excellent for exploring Lisbon given its central situation. Served by metro and plenty of buses, you can easily reach the striking Praça do Comércio, Rua Augusta’s triumphant archway and the famous Martinho da Arcada café, where the world renowned poet, Fernando Pessoa, used to have his daily coffee. Lively Rossio with its many cafés is also nearby. A bit further, in the opposite direction, is Estrela Cathedral, from where you can get a perfect bird’s eye view over the city rooftops and unending blue Tagus.
Buses or the metro will take you to Cais do Sodré train station, which serves the sunny Cascais and Estoril summer resorts. Within walking distance, you have the beautifully renovated Rossio train station, from where you can reach Lord Byron’s beloved town of Sintra. The metro - Avenida metro station is a 3-minute walk from the apartment - will take you to the airport or Santa Apolónia train station in less than 15 min. Taxis also abound, so moving comfortably around the city won’t be a problem.
The apartment is just a stone’s throw from some of Lisbon’s hot spots: Marquês do Pombal square and Eduardo VII park (5min); Rossio square (7 min); Principe Real, the unmissable quarters of Chiado and Bairro Alto (20 min); Amoreiras Shopping Center (25 min); and Alfama with its many cultural treasures (30 min).
