About the Property
2000 sq ft--Sleeps 6 but great for a couple too that likes space and luxury!
This very large (190 m2; approx 2,000 sq.ft.) apartment revolves around a plant-filled Spanish-tiled courtyard with a built-in parrilla and large enough to dine, relax and enjoy the open air. The Spanish colonial style family room with wet bar has an over-sized couch to watch TV or listen to music with surround sound.
The living-dining room has two balconies facing another elegant French-style building. Its classical elegant furnishings and chandelier complement a large fireplace. An office off the living room has a balcony which provides bright light. It has a PC, Internet, Wi-Fi, laser printer and a 21” monitor. The room is also fully equipped to serve as a guest room with a couch and a Murphy bed with a quality mattress.
The spacious master suite, which also opens onto the Spanish courtyard, is handsomely appointed. It has a large marble bathroom, separate woman’s make-up area and a walk-in closet/dressing room. Upstairs is a second, loft-style bedroom with a private bath. A third downstairs bath has a deep Jacuzzi. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen includes a dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer..
The apartment is located in the Tribunales area and a few meters from Corrientes with its many restaurants, theaters and nightlife. The Florida street shopping district and the elegant shops of Recoleta are only a short walk away. Three metro lines within one to three blocks provide easy access to other popular neighborhoods like Palermo, Recoleta and Belgrano.
With the obelisk two blocks away and the Colon Theater only three blocks away, few apartments in Buenos Aires offer this type of luxury in the center of town at this reasonable rate. Nothing has been spared to make your stay comfortable and relaxing.
The space is fully air conditioned. A Sony sound system provides excellent listening throughout the courtyard and the main rooms. Egyptian cotton linens and goose down comforters and pillows together with a high quality mattress assure a good night’s sleep.
All five elegant chandeliers have dimmers to create atmospheric lighting in every room. Fine oriental carpets cover the beautiful hardwood floors. Maid service is available during your stay at a modest fee at your convenience.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are retired professors who visited Buenos Aires and fell in love with the city and decided to retire there. We restored a 2000 sq ft century-old apartment to its former glory, respecting its architectural integrity but incorporating every modern convenience. We live there four months of the year, and we like to share it with like-minded people when we're away. We enjoy getting to know our tenants before they arrive to help orient them in Buenos Aires and its environs.
Why the Owner Chose San Nicolás, Buenos Aires, Argentina:
We live in Manhattan, so we have become accostumed to the hussle and bussle of the big city and to having everything at our fingertips. We wanted the same environment in Buenos Aires, so we settled on the Tribunales area, which has three Metro lines connecting us to every other part of the city. We feel we made a excellent decision.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
As patrons of the arts, we were attracted to Buenos Aires' world-class arts infrastructure with its ballet, opera, concerts and live theater. Our apartment is located just off Corrientes Avenue, the city's main theater district. We enjoy having cafes throughout the city so we can stop when we're tired and have a cup of coffee and rest before continuing our journey. We also enjoy good food at reasonable prices, and you can't beat Buenos Aires in that category. Our apartment is surrounded by literally hundreds of restaurants of every price range and cuisine. Inside our apartment we mostly enjoy its spaciousness with many comfortable nooks. We have a large circle of friends, and our apartment is perfect for entertaining. When the weather permits we dine in the open Spanish courtyard to the sound of singing birds. On cold nights we snuggle in front of our fireplace. We make our cocktails in the family room with its wet bar and ice machine. Or we just sit to watch TV, read or listen to music in surround sound.
