Marvila - Lisbon
This studio apartment for sale in Marvila, Lisbon, is part of a brand-new urban village designed by illustrious architect Renzo Piano. Winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, Renzo Piano has designed some of the most iconic buildings in the world such as The Shard in London, The New York Times Building and the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Impressive architecture and impeccable finishes aside, what makes this apartment so exciting is its riverside location in Marvila. Likened to London’s Shoreditch, Marvila is undergoing a period of transformation fuelled by more than €3.11bn of regeneration investment which means that there is strong potential for capital appreciation over the coming years.
This Marvila apartment for sale is located on the third floor of a striking contemporary building inspired by the billowing sails of the boats that cross the Tagus river every day. Glass is used heavily throughout the building to maximise the natural light and take advantage of the views and this apartment is no exception. The floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors of the studio room ensure that the apartment receives plenty of light. There is also a balcony that spans the width of the apartment – perfect for enjoying Lisbon’s 300 days of sunshine.
Overseen by Renzo Piano, the 52 sqm apartment features exquisite finishes throughout including an Ernestomeda kitchen with Fenix lacquered furniture and SMEG kitchen appliances. The bathroom features Duravit appliances and Gessi taps. Florim ceramic tiles are used in the bathroom and kitchen whilst the rest of the apartment features Ribadão Série TUA wood flooring.
The apartment includes one parking space, storage and air conditioning. Plus, the future owner will benefit from access to the on-site concierge service.
At just under €5,800 per sqm, this apartment is very competitively priced for Lisbon given its impressive finishes and acclaimed architect.
