Charmingly hidden by a vibrant magenta bougainvillea, this beautiful four-flour townhouse is nestled in the Lapa neighborhood, which is known as the embassy quarter. With its large homes and well-preserved palaces and mansions, Lapa is a very important and quiet neighborhood in the heart of Lisbon. From the top floor with a marvelous view over the St. George’s castle and the river Tejo. The home can host up to 8 guests.
This former embassy was originally built in the 19th Century designed by one of the leading architects of the time and later renovated by a renowned interior designer who kept the original structure and details of the building, while giving it her unique sense of style. This house reflects the owner’s Portuguese roots mixed with her eclectic yet clean taste from the world. The beautiful mix of original elements: the elegant façade with built in tiles, the high ceilings and white polished wooden floors along with the Interior Designer’s modern touch gives you a delicate balance between old and new.
Entering this property, you are taken over by the greenery that surrounds it and the harmonious sound of a continuously running fountain. Inside, resplendent light shines through the large windows into every room giving you a warm and spacious feeling. This home offers comfortable and modern spaces that display and integrate impressive pieces of art. You will find yourself dining on a stunning Ingo Maurer LED table, stepping on the very own Designer’s tapestry, or contemplating the works of leading artists Andy Warhol, Vik Muniz, and Anselm Kiefer.
This residence holds a stunning view over the river, which can be truly appreciated while relaxing on the rooftop terrace with a 180-degree view over Lisbon. On warmer days, you can delight yourself in the quiet terrace in front of the main living room made entirely of emerald green Moroccan tiles. Sitting on this terrace, you can surrender to the relaxing bird sounds and the sweet scent of Jasmine flowers while enjoying the warm sun and refreshing yourself in the small pool. If you are lucky, you might even spot a cockatoo.
