In the vibrant district of Salamanca, just a four-minute walk from the Nuñez De Balboa metro stop, this home is a classy yet unpretentious retreat in one of the most upscale areas of the city. There’s a beautiful contrast throughout where the decor mixes luxury furniture and decorations with somewhat industrial architectural features. A typically Spanish tiled floor separates the dining area from the white wooden floor of the living space, but with chunky, girder-like iron pillars at the other end. The pale frames of the delicate bamboo armchairs contrast the black metal and glass door frames leading to the kitchen. Overall, it really makes for an intriguing mix of interiors that is unique, opulent, and full of character – just like the surrounding neighbourhood. Head out into the elegant boulevards of this area to find Michelin-starred restaurants, exclusive bars, and high-end boutiques. Or you can escape the city vibes for an afternoon by taking a seventeen-minute walk to the Parque de El Retiro. You’re sure to be enchanted by this 350-acre parkland offering a boating lake, galleries, and sculptures.
Home truths: *Even though it's on the ground floor, there's a small flight of six stairs to access the home
*From your windows, you'll have views to the inner courtyard, rather than city or street views (it does mean that it's fairly quiet though)
*At full capacity, one person can sleep on a sofa bed in the living room
*The master bedroom does not have a double mattress, but two single beds pushed together (which can be separated if you wish)
*There is no parking with the apartment, but you're in the centre of Madrid with myriad transport options
