About the development
This treasure of a building dates back as far as the late 16th century, owned by the São Martinho Counts, high officials in the Portuguese royal court. Distinctive period features are being retained and turned anew, restoring the building's identity in the city and creating a collection of homes that balances Lisbon's historic culture and charm with a level of modern comfort exceeding that of which is currently available in the city.
Occupying a dominant position on top of one of Alfama's few hills, this project enjoys stunning views over the River Tagus.
The developer, a leading light in Lisbon's recent transformation, has cleverly used the many different sized and shaped spaces within the building to create a special collection of homes, mostly renovations and some entirely new-build, with features like high ceilings, large windows and some with private gardens, terraces and even swimming pools.
The 21 properties are arranged across three areas within the palace grounds; the "Patio", the "Garden" and the "Palace" itself. Due to the project's position on top of a hill, every home will be bathed in sunlight.
