"Spectacular attic with one of the best terraces in Seville and views of the Cathedral, the Giralda and the Archivo de Indias"
Peace and quiet. What you long for every day, what you certainly hope to find when you travel. That feeling of tranquillity and peace of mind when you slip into bed between crisp white sheets on a soft yet firm mattress, in tidy, quiet, serene surroundings. And the vibrant sensation of waking up to a bright, fresh morning... These are some of the positive emotions you experience at the start and end of every day when on holiday, when everything is new and exciting. Just what we hope to provide for you in Home at Homes... and it is surely there in this fabulous, two-bedroom attic apartment.
For a start, its top location, in the very centre of historic Seville, literally steps away from the Cathedral, the Giralda, the Royal Palace and the Archive of the Indies. Its stunning, breathtaking views, encompassing all the city’s greatest treasures. And if that were not enough, the apartment itself: spacious, welcoming, equipped to the detail, with natural light streaming in for most of the day, all year round. A delight for the senses!
Puerta del León is one of the most select properties in our portfolio. Nothing lacking here. An attic apartment with a large terrace boasting stunning views, in an aristocratic building in the historical centre of the city. Its location is unbeatable, just steps away from the cathedral complex, the Giralda and all the main sites of interest in the old centre and the Avenida de la Constitución, which you will delight in walking along, or seeing from the tram.
Once inside, the clean design will delight the most discerning of guests, with its choice of pure white, simple lines and a love of detail. Luxury exudes from the careful distribution, which makes use of symmetry and furniture aids to visually enhance that sense of open-plan (mirrors, sliding doors, space, carefully-chosen colours...) and quality materials, such as marble floors throughout, wooden windows and doors, tempered glass, etc. The exquisite choice of furniture in all of the rooms. And access via your own private lift.
The heart of the apartment is the living area, a large yet minimalistic space, opening onto the city views and bathed in that very special light that comes with Seville. It has three large French windows which lead onto the magnificent terrace, with stunning views over the historical city. There for you alone is the largest Cathedral in the world, the imposing Giralda – a veritable icon of the city – and the Archive of the Indies. All there for you to enjoy while sitting at the table for four over breakfast or a romantic dinner; while taking a nap or enjoying a good book on the loungers; or even while having a barbecue. And not just in the summer, when the large awning will shade you from the sun, but all year round, as the powerful outdoor heaters will keep the winter chills at bay.
But we were talking of the living area, to enjoy as you chose. It has a sitting and TV area, with a sumptuous L-shaped sofa, perfect for relaxing and watching a film, or organising a meeting with friends or family. There is a glass designer coffee table, with a colourful antique carpet adding a note of colour. There is a large flat screen TV and quality sound system.
The dining area has a table for 6, and the adjoining kitchen has everything the most discerning chef would require, with quality white goods and all the necessary electrical equipment and kitchenware.
There is a guest bathroom serving this area.
The sleeping area has two large bedrooms with full, en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is full of light and has three separate areas in one and the same space: one for sleeping, with a large 180 x 200 cm king-size bed and a large designer wardrobe; a working area, with a writing desk which doubles as a sophisticated dressing table; and a full open-plan bathroom which blends in as a functional and decorative element. This has a hanging washbasin, a designer built-in bath with rainfall shower, and designer sanitary ware in a separate space.
The second bedroom is equipped with two 90 x 200 cm twin beds and a Mediterranean-style décor, with deep blue tones on textiles and furniture. The en-suite bathroom is also a wealth of luxury, with high quality designer sanitary ware, ancillary elements and claddings.
