Beautiful furnished penthouse apt, with open floor plan and tons of light, in a 1913 building in the heart of historic San Telmo. Three balconies overlooking lovely Lezama Park.
Bohemian elegance at its best. One of the most beautiful historic buildings in San Telmo, located on wide tree-lined Avenida Caseros.
The neighborhood of San Telmo-- the heart of BA's historic district--has a decidedly bohemian look and feel and can be compared to Greenwich Village in Manhattan, Back Bay in Boston, or Montmartre in Paris. It is home to many professionals, artists, musicians, and expats who are drawn to its gritty but trendy urban old world charm. Cobble stone streets, colonial architecture, a multitude of great restaurants, cafes, bars, tango clubs, museums, antique stores, etc.
San Telmo is conveniently located downtown, and is adjacent to beautiful Puerto Madero on the river, to Barracas (the design district), and to the charming neighborhood of La Boca. Close to everything!
On Sundays, Defensa street (1/2 block from the entrance to our building) is closed to traffic and becomes a 30 block pedestrian walk way with musicians, tango dancers, buskers, arts and crafts stands, etc. And the flea/antique market-- held every weekend in San Telmo's Plaza Dorrego--is only 5 blocks away.
This block of Caseros Avenue is the heart of San Telmo's trendy new southern restaurant district. There are eleven restaurants-bars-cafes, most which have outdoor sidewalk seating, in this block alone.
One of them is a natural foods restaurant and bakery, offering vegetarian and gluten free options. There is also a craft beer style pub offering a wide variety of beers on tap. And there are many additional great eateries on our block. One of the best tango music venues in the City is located a half block away. All are just steps away from the front door to the building, but the apt is on the top floor and sheltered from the noise.
The apt has been updated/modernized but retains its original hardwood floors, 12 ft ceilings, mosaic tile, the old style "bovedilla" undulating brick ceiling in the kitchen, etc. And it is furnished with many Argentine retro/midcentury modern pieces from the 50s, 60s and 70s. If you appreciate vintage architecture, you'll LOVE it!
