La Cupola apartment is an exquisite property – truly one of a kind – that exceeds the expectations of even the most demanding traveler. You’ll love discovering its amazing nooks and crannies and fantastic turn of the century details like a fireplace, stunning high ceilings, abundant natural light, and its very own restored cupola. Its beautiful rooftop garden oasis provides a respite from city life and is ideal for entertaining. Modern amenities offer the ideal mix of style and comfort in this 4 bedroom, 4 bath property located in the heart of Palermo.
Just steps from the boutiques, bars, and restaurants of Palermo Soho, as well as numerous parks and green spaces such as the Botanical Gardens, Zoo, and beautiful Rosedal rose garden, this home serves as the ideal home base for both short- and long-term stays in Buenos Aires. You’re just steps from public transport (subway “D” line and multiple buses), and will be able to walk to some of the best attractions the city has to offer.
La Cupola is furnished exquisitely with an eclectic mix of antiques and modern touches. From the stunning marble staircase that leads you upstairs to the painted tiles used in the bathrooms, every last detail – large and small – will catch your eye.
The entrance hallway has a grand skylight above the spiral marble staircase and large factory style windows. The spacious kitchen is outfitted to satisfy the needs of the most sophisticated home cooks, and you'll love sipping a café con leche at the large island (which is a bar salvaged from an old almacén) while getting ready to start your day. The luminous dining room has a table that seats eight and overlooks Av. Scalabrini Ortiz through antique French doors with rounded glass.
You'll love exploring the beautifully restored cupola that sits atop a magnificent spiral staircase; intimate, it provides the ideal setting for taking a break from a busy day shopping, exploring and soaking up the city. Grab a book from the library and sit in front of the fireplace when you need some down time, or fire up the traditional Argentine parrilla and dine al fresco with friends on the rooftop terrace. Great lighting throughout – turn of the century chandeliers, modern spotlights and dimmers, and large windows – add to the ambiance.
Located on the main floor, the first of 2 master suites offers a private refuge with beautiful built in closets, a balcony, a flat screen TV and a sleek black tiled luxe en-suite bathroom. With optional connecting doors there is an adjoining (or separate) second smaller bedroom also with a small balcony and a cozy sleeping loft, with access to its own bathroom with beautiful tiles and a shower. The third bedroom and bathroom are up a narrow antique staircase. This small room is very cleverly outfitted with an over sized built in bunk bed that is suitable for both adults and kids and has its own full bath with tub as well. On the very top floor is the 2nd master bedroom, which is the largest of all the rooms and has a queen size bed, flat screen TV and DVD, a dressing area, a beautiful bathroom with loads of natural sunlight, double sinks, marble counters, and a double shower. The most amazing feature of this penthouse suite is the gorgeous view of the cupola and lush verdant gardens in this rooftop oasis.
During your stay at La Cupola, you will be immersed in the best of chic Soho living. This exclusive property is unsurpassed in location, atmosphere, and quality. Whether it's spending an evening having dinner on the enchanting rooftop garden terrace, entertaining in the spectacular living spaces, or cozying up and gazing out over Palermo after a busy day, each moment of your time here will be unforgettable.

We always wanted to own a cupola! It is one of the typical architectural gems that make Buenos Aires so special and we were thrilled to have found one in need of some love and attention and smack in the center of our favorite neighborhood, Palermo.
The amazing roof top terrace offers your own private Oasis smack in the middle of the city. And being in a cupola is a one of a kind experience. Singers will delight in the fantastic acoustics in the center of the cupola. Walking distance to all the coolest bars and restaurants and boutiques that make Palermo one of the hippest neighborhoods anywhere.
Located in the lively neighborhood of Palermo. In walking distance of the city's hippest boutiques, bars and restaurants. Art fairs on weekends. Near Botanical gardens for a morning jog or walk. Shopping, subway, zoo all within walking distance.
