About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This fully furnished one-bedroom, one-bath, corner apartment. It has been completely remodeled with an emphasis on style and comfort. Unique in that every room has a fabulous view.

One of the outstanding features of this spacious Buenos Aires pied-a-terre is the spectacular view of the world famous Recoleta cemetery - the final resting place of Evita Peron. A walk through these opulent, above ground monuments is a tour of the rich and famous of Argentine history. Your apartment's ninth-floor view extends beyond Recoleta to the River Plate and the distant Uruguay.

Located in the cultural center of Buenos Aires, you are surrounded by sidewalk cafes, top quality restaurants, clubs, bookstores, boutiques, parks and theatres - one block from Recoleta Village Entertainment Center, two blocks from the Buenos Aires Design Center, near the National Museum of Fine Arts. A walk across the park, which hosts the city's foremost weekly art fair, will land you on Avenida Alvear - the most celebrated, upscale, shopping area in Buenos Aires. While in the heart of this bustling cultural center, the 9th floor location affords a peaceful night's sleep.

Centrally located, only 2 blocks to the new Recoleta subway station and even closer to cross town buses.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: After working on and off in Buenos Aires for many years, in 2003 we finally came for vacation. We had such a great time...we loved the people, the architecture, the art...and of course the food. We decided we'd like to spend more time in Buenos Aires and in 2004, we cashed in our stock options for this apartment. Today, we live in Miami, but have a great manager who meets and greets our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Argentina:
We wanted to own an apartment in a major city that didn't require us to drive - a walking city, with good mass transportation or inexpensive taxis. It needed to have great architecture, style, art, music...and of course, incredible food. We found Buenos Aires to have all this and more...and at a much lower cost than Europe. Like New York or Paris, every neighborhood is a new adventure. We love the sidewalk cafes, the weekend art fairs, biking through the parks of Palermo. And while we always heard the steaks were great, no one ever told us about the homemade pasta...incredible.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Incredible view of the Recoleta cemetery. Jim took the initial listing picture from our balcony in the early morning. He won 3rd place in the Miami Herald photo contest for this image. The location of this property makes it convenient to visit all of Buenos Aires. The Micro Centre, San Telmo and La Boca are to the South, while Palermo and Belgrano are to the North.
