"Travel back in time just by going home. This distinguished 3-bedroom family home right in the centre of the city is located in the Princesa building"

Description

The urban landscape of this capital city sometimes offers up unexpected places, such as this fabulous haven of peace right in the centre of the city, which takes us back to a key moment of developmentalism in Spain. A three-bedroom family home still preserving the aristocratic style of Madrid’s 1970s “upper class”, located in a building well known to those with an interest in architecture: the iconic Princesa building.

This singular construction was designed in 1975 by architects Fernando Higueras and Antonio Miró as homes for members of the armed forces, and is one of the first examples of Spanish organic architecture. Impressive terraces, vertical gardens and green inner patios: an oasis of vegetation in the very centre of this busy city, just steps away from the main sites of tourist and cultural interest.

The communal areas, landings and hidden corners of the building are tempting to be explored, camera in hand. Once inside the apartment, all is set for relaxing and quality family time, surrounded by the discrete charm of the period neoclassical bourgeois décor which remains intact throughout the property, and which will amaze the most nostalgic of travellers

The property has large, spacious living areas, and three bedrooms for accommodating up to 6 guests in utmost comfort.

The living room breathes in life from the stunning terrace overlooking the building’s inner gardens, with their winding cascades of green.

Open plan, French in style and divided into different areas, natural sunlight streams in practically all day long through the large glass sliding doors opening onto the terrace. All the original structural and decorative elements have been kept: wooden parquet floors, moldings, decorative paintwork, fabric-covered walls, marble… together with a magnificent collection of Spanish and French-style furniture and impressive decorative carpentry in some of the rooms. 

The main living area has a fabulous decorative marble fireplace as its centre piece, a TV area complete with sound system, and two comfortable upholstered easy chairs. Two additional sitting areas have plush sofas and feature carpets, with numerous family heirlooms and antique pieces.

The dining area is in truly aristocratic style, with boiseries, damask-covered walls and elaborate chandeliers. There are eight upholstered chairs around the classical wooden dining table.

The kitchen is similarly proportioned, but breaks the classical theme with its modern design. Practicality is key here. It is generously equipped, and includes a breakfast bar as an integral part of the work surface.

The apartment has 3 bedrooms which can comfortably sleep up to 6 people. There are also two full bathrooms, one of which is en-suite to the master bedroom.

The master bedroom is bathed in natural light which streams in through a large window looking onto the main terrace. It has a double bed and vintage wooden furniture, dressing table and two easy chairs, in addition to a large wardrobe.

The second bedroom is equipped with twin beds and auxiliary furniture.

The third bedroom is furnished in a younger style, with a study desk and a trundle bed.

Fully equipped and very, very quiet, this property will provide you with all the comforts and conveniences that we strive to find for you at Home at Homes. In addition to an unbeatable location, right next to the busy Princesa street (which continues on from the bustling Gran Vía) and a short walk away from the Plaza de España and the main sites of tourist and cultural interest in the city.
