Property description

Bossa Nova! As electrifying, colorful and dynamic as the pulse of this exciting city, this penthouse is a dynamic fusion of contrasting materials, textures, and bold design detail. Located in the heart of Ipanema’s best neighborhood with thrilling views of the Christ statue and the mountains, it’s a chic hideaway perched high above the action.Situated along a peaceful leafy residential street in the very heart of Ipanema, this mid-century style penthouse occupies the top two levels of the building with iconic panoramic views of the Christ statue and the city below.
Profiled in 'The Sunday Times' magazine (UK), recommended and featured in 'Boutique Homes' and 'Savoteur' and winner of the Best Private Rental in Rio in the LUX Awards.
The apartment epitomizes the spirit of Bossa Nova and actually resides along the same street as former resident and “Girl from Ipanema” composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.

The double height layout means there are areas to share and areas for privacy. The main living and dining spaces feature a balcony overlooking the treeline and streets below along with the fully equipped kitchen and both an en-suite double bedroom and a smaller en-suite single bedroom. The upper floor features the large en-suite master bedroom and dressing area along with a private sitting room off of the main terrace. Equipped with a jacuzzi and dining table for four, this is the spot for stunning views of the famous Mt. Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer.

The interiors are a fun and colorful mix of elements and period design with decor and furnishings creating a distinctive Brazilian character.

Bold, vibrant and unique, this penthouse immerses you into the captivating grandeur of Rio.

Additional features include 24 hr. concierge and security. Complimentary loan of mobile phone, Wifi throughout, 2 HDTVs with cable and multi-region DVD player and DVD library, stereo and CD player with iPod docking audio. Housekeeping (additional services upon request) and laundry facilities. Parking for two cars within the building. Optional airport transfers and car hire.

IMPORTANT NOTE: this is a residential family building, not an apartment hotel.If you are after a 'mancation' type holiday please do not make an enquiry.This is strictly NOT the environment for sexual tourism.

AS OF 2016 BRAND NEW FEATURES INCLUDE 2 HI DEFINITION CONNECTED TVS,CABLE TV NOW ON BOTH LEVELS,INTERNET ACCESS NOW EXTENDED TO INCLUDE BOTH FLOORS,BRAND NEW DESIGNER KITCHEN,3RD SHOWER ROOM NOW COMPLETELY RE FURBISHED,BRAND NEW 2ND SHOWER ROOM,NEW DVD LIBRARY,NEW SILENT SPLIT AIR CON IN MAIN LIVING/DINING AREA,NEW CEILING/WALL FANS IN KITCHEN/3RD BEDROOM,4 STAND ALONE FLOOR FANS,NEW ART , NEW SPLIT AIR CON IN 3RD BEDROOM AND NEW MANAGEMENT !!

Accommodation includes 3 bathrooms,2 living rooms,quality contemporary art ,wireless broadband,2 LCD TVs(40',32') with cable/dvd,washer/dryer,power shower,24h security etc. Also 2 outdoor spaces,one 1st floor balcony and a decked terrace on the top floor with private Jacuzzi(not overlooked). Majestic views of the mountains and Christ statue (illuminated at night).

Situated in a calm tree lined residential street referred to by locals as the “noble” area of Ipanema, you are ideally placed just adjacent to Rua Vinicius de Morais in the safest part of the city. Just four blocks from the famous Post 9 on the beach and a couple of blocks from the Lago and the main thoroughfare, this is the very best of Ipanema. The pulsing beat and joie de vivre of overlapping cultures is the charm of Rio, from the vibrant Copacabana on the south side and the twisting density of the favelas, to the dizzying action of downtown and the fashionable coastal beaches, the vibrant rhythms and diversity of the city are captivating. Surrounded by tropical rainforest with the iconic Sugarloaf monolith and Mt. Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer overlooking the city, this world famous town is everything and more.

Just some of the many artists represented include Aoleo,Oscar Niemeyer,Noe Klablin,Carlos Sena and Andy Warhol.Furnishings includes work by Eileen Gray, Florence Broadhurst,Sergio Rodrigues,Vivienne Westwood and Giuseppe Scapinelli.




Extra Maid Service: Extra maid service is available.A day session(4/5 hours) costs R150.A mini session lasting approx. 2 hours is available for R90.Please make sure you book these,if required, at the time of booking as they can be difficult to arrange last minute.Their duties can also cover ironing,food shopping and child minding.
An English speaking babysitter of 20 years experience dealing with 3 months to 8 years is available for R30 per hour,plus taxi fare if required to stay after midnight.

Airport pick up service.: Airport pick up service is available with a very reliable named driver in a new model, air conditioned saloon car for R140 .He will wait for you at arrivals with a placard bearing your name. I strongly recommend you take advantage of this offer as it helps my management to co-ordinate your smooth arrival at the apartment.Payment is direct to the driver.A van with an 8 seat capacity plus luggage is also possible for R180.
Great rates are also available for local car tours or trips further afield to Parity or Buzios.

Special Notes: Being a penthouse means the apt. is flooded with light (many Rio apts. can be dark due to so many tall buildings facing each other).

Sleeps 5 in conventional beds.There is a sofa bench/bed that can be utilized as a single bed and a spare futon mattress that can be placed anywhere.If you are willing to be flexible in your sleeping arrangements up to 7 individuals can be comfortably accommodated.

Having 2 very distinct outdoor areas on 2 levels combined with panoramic views means the apartment is suffused with the natural grandeur of Rio.

In addition there is the ease and convenience of being directly parallel and just 350 meters (5 minute walk) to Post 9 on the beach,generally regarded as the absolute apex of Carioca beach culture.

Finally ,for the discerning traveler, this beautifully maintained property is positioned atop an architecturally very distinguished building.

Car: Not Necessary

Positioned in a calm,residential street canopied with tropical trees adorned with orchids, this is referred to by locals as the 'noble' area of Ipanema. Being to the left of Rua Vinicius de Morais this is seen to be the safest part of Ipanema, not being in the 'shadow' of any favela.Known as the 'Beverly Hills of Rio' due to the many telenovela stars who live here. Tom Jobim wrote the classic 'The Girl From Ipanema' song while living in this street in 1962(a plaque commemorates this at no.107). You are exactly parallel to and just 4 blocks from the legendary Post 9 on the beach. 2 blocks from the exciting shopping opportunities on the main thoroughfare of Rua Visc. de Piraja, and just 3 blocks from the Lagoa. Although taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, being so well located means you can walk to all the local culinary,cultural and nightlife attractions Ipanema is so famous for.You are assigned 2 parking spaces within the building which is useful if you hire a car or have Brazilian friends visiting.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Very widely traveled.Brought up in the Far East and Australia,am now mostly based in the UK. My manager and I are 100% committed to providing you with the best experience of Rio possible.

Why the Owner Chose Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro - State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
Ipanema is almost like a small kingdom set apart.The timeless life style associated with such easy access to such an extraordinary beach is very seductive.Now safer than ever,quite simply Ipanema is in a class of it's own.It's where Brazil looks for new trends and is a show place for the nation.It is classic,eternal Rio and the energy is palpable.It is the Rio of your dreams! Rio (a city that,even within Brazil, is the most 'Brazilian' of cities) is also a very culturally rich society with a strong theater tradition,great modern artists,the center of the telenovela and media industries,an extraordinary and diverse musical heritage and a vigorous intellectual history involving great writers and architects.It is also fascinating to observe the vast changes Rio is currently undergoing.The speed and scale in urban regeneration is unprecedented amongst any major world city in modern times.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Space, and a tremendous feeling of privacy floating above everywhere else in your own private world. Apart from great style,I think to have the rare combination of 2 entirely different outdoor spaces on separate floors together with contrasting and amazing views coupled with the location so close to Post 9 on the beach.All this and being a penthouse awash with natural light allows an ambiance that is pretty special.Ticks all the key boxes!
