Alfama Santa Helena
Set on a quiet street in Alfama, one of Lisbon’s most historic and iconic neighbourhoods, this beautiful duplex apartment is part of a stunning project which saw an exquisite period property, that was most recently a school and originally a palace, transformed into new-build and renovated apartments.
This apartment was actually part of the original palace kitchen and the sixteenth-century tilework from the kitchen has been used to decorate the walls, giving this contemporary apartment an injection of historic charm.
This apartment spans 149 across two floors with the main living areas located on the top floor, the entrance level of the apartment, and the two bedrooms both of which boast fitted storage and en-suite bathrooms are set on the lower floor. Whilst the bedrooms are technically set on the ground floor, the windows are not level with the street, offering a superior sense of privacy.
Upon entering the property there is a cloakroom for storing coats and outdoor clothing and a hallway that opens up to the impressive south-facing living room with a high ceiling of nearly 4m, accentuating the sense of space. The living room connects to a separate dining room with a semi-open kitchen via a large doorway. The dining room has a high vaulted ceiling and the light walls are adorned with original tilework from the palace days of the property and exposed natural stone. The kitchen features a marble island and sleek integrated appliances. A guest bathroom with marble details completes the property.
Future owners will also benefit from one parking space, 24-hour security and access to the delightful communal gardens of the development and its small spa area.
Located in one of the most sought-after areas in Lisbon for those who cherish a traditional Lisbon with its unique narrow cobbled streets, traditional little shops and a sense of community, this is the perfect residence to call home, mixing history with high-end finishes.
"Part of a successful new-build project sold by Athena a few years ago in no time, this apartment blends charm and modernity in Lisbon's oldest neighbourhood.”
