This apartment is close to the lively Mateos Gago street, right next to the Giralda and the Santa María de los Reyes Cathedral. A sophisticated two-bedroom property housed in a new building, yet preserving all the charm of Sevillian architecture on the outside. Inside, a modern apartment with all the comforts you could wish for.
The interior décor bears the stamp of one of our star designers, the renowned Ernesto de Ceano, who makes the most of the serene geometry and practical distribution of the home with his contemporary style, exquisite selection of furniture, and imaginative decorative solutions. Superb finishings –floors, windows and doors, insulation, all of the highest quality– exude just that air of prestige and comfort we want to reward our guests with, for we are just as discerning as they are.
The name of the apartment has not been chosen at random: Puerta del Sol, sunlight streaming in from early morning, all year round. A privilege which can best be enjoyed from either of the property’s two terraces.
The first of these terraces is accessed through the kitchen and is equipped with a table and four chairs, perfect for starting the day with an al fresco breakfast. Coffee and sunlight: bring on the day! The kitchen is designed in a flowing, contemporary style, equipped to the detail with the best white goods and appliances. A washing machine and dryer are housed within a wall cupboard.
The bright living room is at the end of the corridor, and gives access to the main terrace. This is literally the “Puerta del Sol”, providing a way in for the light which streams into the apartment over many hours of the day. The terrace can best be enjoyed as a solarium with views to the Giralda and Seville’s picturesque skyline. Fear not, sunbathing can be indulged in out of sight of prying eyes! With outdoor furniture and a shower, nothing better than to freshen up here after a quiet siesta or a sunbathing session... and feel free to ration your exposure with the large awning provided!
The living room is a prime example of Ceano’s creative instinct: balance and an intelligent use of space, with a sophisticated selection of designer furniture, singular refurbished pieces, and more personal objects. There is a sitting area with audio system, TV, Plywood table and chair, and a comfortable and exclusive designer sofa. The dining area is fitted with a Saarinen tulip table and beautiful Hans Wegner CH24 chairs, designer hits of the 20th century and a firm favourite with the designer. There is also a working area, with a refurbished raw wood table.
The sleeping area has a large master bedroom with direct access to the solarium-terrace. It has a large built-in wardrobe, contemporary designer tables and lamps, and an en-suite bathroom with rainfall shower.
The second bedroom has a single bed, a spacious wardrobe and a small work area.
The second bathroom also has a rainfall shower, bright white sanitary ware, and contemporary designer floors.
Puerta del Sol is located in the same building as Puerta del Sol II, a sophisticated new building next to the lively Mateos Gago street and right on the doorstep of the Barrio de Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter of Seville. A truly privileged location in the historic centre of the city, just steps away from the Giralda and Seville Cathedral, the Royal Palace (Reales Alcázares) and the Archive of the Indies, and surrounded by bars and restaurants in which to enjoy typical Sevillian fare, or shops in which to buy local crafts. The apartment is just a short walk away from other important sites, such as the Murillo gardens and the old tobacco factory to one side, and the city’s commercial centre on the other. The perfect pied-à-terre for enjoying the myriad options Seville has to offer all year round.
