Yes, we know... happiness is in the small things, the real luxury is being at one with oneself... But let's be honest: there are homes and homes. If you’re looking for an exclusive retreat in Seville, we’ve found the perfect home for you: a truly unique two-storey townhouse next to the Reales Alcázares, in a charming square in the Barrio de Santa Cruz.
This is a very special property, decorated with utmost care and a very personal touch. After a complete renovation, the house has been distributed over two floors and includes a terrace. The interior design is eclectic and refined, combining classical elements with an Andalusian flavour, and pieces of contemporary art. Not to forget some of the paintings on the walls, which create interesting contrasts and provide an “arty” touch.
A small hallway on the ground floor gives access to a bright dining room with a sumptuous table for eight. Those in the know will appreciate the fantastic Murano glass lamp which hangs from the ceiling. Next to the dining room is a pretty and practical kitchen, fully equipped to cater for the needs of the most gourmet chef amongst us. There is also a bathroom with a massage shower cubicle.
A staircase leads up to the first floor, with its spacious and bright open-plan living room, which looks onto the outside through two large balcony windows in truly Sevillian style. The painted ceiling, wooden floors and leather Chester sofas give this room a warm and elegant feel, and contrast with other more modern pieces of furniture and the large paintings which hang on the walls. A bespoke bookcase conceals a guest bed, suitable for a third person or child.
The second floor is the sleeping area, housing the bedroom with its own terrace, splendid views and the main bathroom with jacuzzi bath. The terrace is on split levels, the upper of which is accessed via a wrought iron spiral staircase and fitted with a sun pergola, table and chairs to provide comfortable seating in the shade. From here, the views of the Giralda are simply stunning.
A real treat from which to enjoy all that Seville has to offer at any time of the year.
