"An oasis of freshness in one of the most picturesque corners of the old town centre"
Plaza de las Mercedarias is the meeting point of the streets of Conde de Ybarra, Levíes and Garci Pérez. The square takes its name from a nearby convent, and its demure charm provides the perfect stopping place while exploring the old heart of the city. Integrated in this traditional scenery, Home at Homes has found for you this fabulous Sevillian house which has been cleverly renovated to provide a contemporary home, whilst preserving and highlighting all the best features of period Sevillian domestic architecture.
The building is a stately patio house divided into two large and luxurious one-bedroom apartments. A true delight for the most discerning, savant and sophisticated traveller, who makes choices transcending trends and fads.
The interior of this apartment is crisp and spacious, with high ceilings and large windows, the renovation project having preserved the architectural charm of the original house. Because even before passive houses or bioclimatic architecture came on the scene, Sevillian builders were already designing houses to take advantage of the city’s continuously sunny skies, but with shaded areas to keep the inside cool and welcoming.
Light-coloured stuccoed walls and marble floors throughout create a sense of continuity, project the natural sunlight that streams in from the patio, and make for a crisp, almost monastic, atmosphere. The perfect resting place! This apartment will make you leave behind all noise, urgency, stress… Your quiet home, away from the bustling activity of the city centre. But just steps away from it all.
The apartment is spread out over three levels. A short flight of stairs takes you from the street to the first floor and a spacious, open plan living room with sitting area, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is a statement in itself. Integrated in the living area, its bold red colour provides a unique decorative feature and statement of intent. And, of course, it is equipped to the detail with top quality whitegoods and appliances.
The designer dining table for six is set on an oriental carpet and surrounded by six antique Spanish chairs upholstered in a striking emerald green velvet.
The sitting and TV area is equipped with a sofa and chaise longue, a French-style sideboard, armchairs and several light fixtures to create a comfortable reading area next to the balcony, which brings in natural light during the day.
The upper floor houses the bedroom, bright and spacious, opening onto a large terrace and provided with a full en-suite bathroom with shower.
The terrace has two separate areas, one with a small table and two Acapulco chairs in an energising orange colour; the other a solarium with two sun loungers and a practical shower with which to keep the summer heat at bay in style.
Location, location, location. Plaza de las Mercedarias is the perfect place to stay if, in addition to a central, well communicated location, you are looking for history, genuine urban landscapes, charming walks and easy access to the main sites of interest. Guests will find the Murillo Gardens, the Reales Alcázares (Royal Palace) and the Barrio de Santa Cruz or the María Luisa Park a short stroll away in one direction, the Cathedral, the Giralda and the Archive of the Indies in the other. In addition to myriad other alternative routes peppered with bars and taverns, local craft shops, museums, and buildings of historical and architectural interest.
