Modern luxury. This stunning contemporary home has recently been refurbished, and includes trinkets collected from international trips, along with Argentinean antiques. The host used to have a private restaurant in the house, so the kitchen is designed to the highest standard. Special items include an antique mirrors, golden cages containing porcelain Lladro figurines, and a chandelier from the 1950s. The office/bedroom has an imperial desk from the 18th century and an Italian chandelier with Rocca Crystals. We love extravagance and unique touches, the 4-poster bed in the master bedroom and the large swimming pool, perfect after a day’s sightseeing in the city.
