A building formerly owned by the Portuguese Royal family, now belonging to the D. Manuel II Foundation and represented by His Royal Highness the Duke of Bragança, is being completely transformed into superb residences for sale in Lisbon.
Nestled on the top of a hill on a quiet and residential street of Chiado, this historic building was originally built in the 18th century. In the 1990s and after the tragic Armazéns do Chiado fire, this building was fully restored by the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, a world architecture reference and Pritzker winner.
Preserving and respecting its architectural elements, this project combines a magnificent 19th-century facade with modern design. From spacious studios to one-bedroom apartments available for sale in Chiado, every single unit has been carefully thought out, featuring beautiful white stone bathrooms, elegant pine wood floors and stylish kitchens with top-end appliances.
A truly unique feature, the gaiola pombalina, a wooden anti-seismic structure created after the 1755 Lisbon's earthquake to protect the buildings. Nowadays this structure is used in the living rooms and bedrooms, as a fashionable and iconic piece, that both Lisboetas and foreigners adore.

Strategically sheltered in a residential street, close to the river and the bustling and chic Chiado's centre, at Vitor Cordon 38 residents can enjoy the peace and harmony this prestigious district has to offer...
