"Sumptuous and full of classic charm... all this and more describes this superb four-bedroom home located in one of the most exclusive and central residential areas of Seville. Looking for a home with a heart? This is it"
Prado de San Sebastián
is an exclusive residential neighbourhood in the city centre, close to
the Maria Luisa Park and the gardens from which the area takes its name.
It is only a few minutes’ walk from both the historical centre and the
Nervión financial district, and has excellent bus, tram and metro
connections with the rest of Seville’s metropolitan area
(Sevilla-Aljarafe). And it is literally a stroll away from the Prado de
San Sebastián bus station, which connects the city with the rest of the
Essentially, this property
combines proximity to the historical city centre and its most prominent
architectural landmarks, with the privacy, security, amenities and open
spaces inherent to a residential neighbourhood, making it the perfect
retreat for the most discerning traveller. But its characteristics also
make it a location of choice for those needing to relocate to Seville
for longer periods of time for reasons of work, whether on their own or
with the family, a pied-à-terre from which to enjoy all that Seville has
to offer without distance being an issue.
property itself is an excellent example of classic Seville elegance. It
is a spacious apartment of exquisite and decidedly romantic design,
which is both expressive and aristocratic but has that perfect timeless
“touch” that will never go out of fashion. The interior décor builds on
the property’s strengths (space, orientation, bright natural light),
whilst the distribution makes the most of each and every corner of the
apartment, providing a relaxed, serene and sophisticated environment.
property is divided into two distinct areas: the living area, with a
large living-cum-dining room; and the sleeping area, with four bedrooms
which can easily accommodate seven guests in total privacy and comfort.
off the hall is the heart of the house: a large and elegant living and
dining room bathed in natural light. This space is divided into a living
area, a dining area and a reading area with large windows that allows
natural light into the whole room. The French-inspired décor is a
tribute to the classical influences of the 19th century, and is boosted
by family heirlooms which take on a new lease of life. The result is a
setting which invites quiet enjoyment: a relaxing pastel colour scheme
which enhances the room’s brightness and affords warmth, with a hessian
fitted carpet and comfortable sofas and easy chairs. The textiles, the
floral prints, the classical furniture, the paintings which hang on the
walls and the art deco fireplace add to the quiet and somewhat rural
atmosphere, conducive to sharing long evenings in its midst. The large
dining table, made of solid wood and accommodating up to 8 guests,
provides the stately touch, tempered by the pretty chairs of the same
olive-grey stained wood as the bookcases on either side of the
Across the hallway are the
rest of the rooms in the house. The Provencal-style kitchen is spacious
and fully equipped with white goods and appliances and a very convenient
The four bedrooms all
afford the same air of elegance and serenity as the rest of the house.
Light, space and refinement compete for prominence, to ensure that
guests will have a quiet and peaceful stay.
master bedroom invites relaxation. Tastefully decorated in soothing
tones, the headboard and valance of the king-size bed are made of
blue-patterned tulle matching the curtains which dress the large
windows. The hessian fitted carpet and the solid wood furniture provide
sophistication and warmth, and the built-in wardrobes offer plenty of
storage solutions. A full en-suite bathroom affords privacy and
convenience, and here also textiles play a prominent role, with the
walls, ceiling and even the bath enclosure being lined with a
traditional indigo-blue floral print in tulle, to striking and
The second bedroom
has two double beds and is decorated in the same romantic but sedate
pastel shades, with an ethnic rug affording a splash of colour. Here
again there are classical pieces of furniture, some of them family
heirlooms. Next to the bedroom is the second full bathroom.
third bedroom is fitted with two wooden twin beds and a wooden desk,
with coordinating linens, whilst the fourth bedroom has a single bed.
Both rooms can make use of the third full bathroom.
attention to detail and high quality throughout, including the fitted
carpet, wooden floors, marble tops and wooden fixtures, live up to
Seville’s classic conception of luxury. And all of this is literally on
the doorstep of some of the most beautiful areas of the city which saw
the birth of the poet and writer Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer: the Maria Luisa
Park, the Prado gardens, the Barrio de Santa Cruz and the Guadalquivir
river, to name but a few; and just a few minutes’ walk, or a metro stop
away, from its historical centre.
A short walk from the property there is an
underground station that will take you in 5 minutes to the Plaza Nueva
(center of Seville) and the best shopping district.
