A charming south-facing 5-bedroom 4-bathroom apartment in a one-of-kind location in the heart of Principe Real – the most sought after district in central historical Lisbon – no more than 100 metres from the high street of Principe Real and the Portuguese Parliament
The split level apartment and cozy winter garden have a total build size of 243,45 m2, distributed over 3 levels, i.e. from raised ground to second level. This unique property, which is set on a plot with 524,00 m2, includes a 400,00 m2 private garden, large terrace, heated swimming pool and open city views towards Chiado.
The historical building was completely renovated about 20 years ago and converted to a concrete structure with only the original facades remaining and paying tribute to the character of the original 18thcentury building, which houses just two apartments. Potential changes are therefore such as adding an elevator (which is possible) are easier to implement. The water mains were replaced more recently.
The sunny living room on the ground level extends into the split-level winter garden, which leads off on to the beautifully manicured garden area with a small out house (storage) and original kennels, which can easily be converted into a playground or additional leisure area. The stylish natural stone bathrooms are equipped with signature sanitary-ware by Phillipe Starck. The master bedroom includes a working wood-burning fireplace.
The attractive Principe Real neighbourhood (named “Royal Prince” in honour of Queen Maria II’s first born child) extends north of Bairro Alto, and although it was once only known for its antique shops and bars, has now become an important shopping area, although it remains essentially a residential district, filled with gardens, a couple of the city’s most tranquil squares, and colourful mansions. The abundant charm has turned it into one of the most sought-after areas to live and rent in the central historical area of Lisbon.
