Intendente Palacete Benformoso

6 Bedrooms

An opportunity to own a piece of history, this 19th-century palacete in Intendente is a Property of Public Interest and exudes old-world Portuguese charm with its bright facade adorned with vibrant azulejos and preserved architectural elements.

This spectacular palacete is just a stone’s throw from shops, restaurants, two metro stations and amenities. From this coveted spot, several delightful green spaces are within walking distance too - including Miradouro da Senhora do Monte, a delightful viewpoint with sweeping vistas over the city.

Not only would this property be a great lifestyle investment for families seeking a palatial residence, but it has huge investment appeal too. It could be transformed into smaller residences that could be rented out or the ground floors might be used as a stunning office space. The property has a lot of potential.

The palacete

Built during the 19th century this Romantic-style palacete is brimming with character from the outset thanks to its vibrant tiled facade, arched windows, green wooden shutters, filigree metal balconies and grand front door.

Whilst the interiors of the property have undergone improvements over the years, great care has gone into preserving the original elements of the property, such as the moulded high ceilings and the imposing entrance hall. This has resulted in an enchanting environment where history and modern comfort seamlessly intertwine. 

On the ground floor of the property, the impressive entrance hall is flanked by two large rooms which could be transformed into offices. Four bedrooms and an impressive master suite with a vast walk-in wardrobe and an adjoining room (perfect for an infant or a small office) are set on the first floor. On the top floor of the property lies an additional bedroom and the main living areas including a huge living room, a kitchen, an office, a library and a smaller, more intimate lounge. From this level, one can access the first terrace with a potential bar area that connects to another higher up terrace with city views and an outdoor cooking area.

A surprisingly bright and spacious attic completes the property. This mezzanine-like attic could be used for storage, a lounge or even transformed into further bedrooms.


Investment potential

This unusually spacious property presents a wonderful opportunity for large families looking to relocate to Lisbon to enjoy its exceptional quality of life or investors looking for a project with Lisbon that’s full of historic charm.


“Steeped in history, this striking palacete is an attractive opportunity for families looking to relocate and has a lot of potential.”
