I am a former advertising creative director who loves Madrid and enjoys creating unique spaces. This is my first experience on refurbishing an old Madrid apartment, and I found it fascinating. I travelled to this kind of flats to London and Paris, and I think there's no other way to live a city and feel like a local. Fortunately, I had some really nice antiques to decorate Puñonrostro.
There are many nice apartments in Madrid, specially in old buildings on historic neighbourhoods. I chose to buy and refurbish this place in particular because I thought it could be special and truly unique. I looked at 16th century Madrid maps and the street was there already, the building was beautiful and even the name was funny - Puñonrostro, an aristocrat, a duke with a name that literally means 'punch in the face'. Well, it's been 6 months since I started the refurbishment, and the place is somewhere I'd love to stay if I was a visitor and I came to Madrid for a few days, a month a year. So I think I achieved exactly what I was looking for.
The flat is gorgeous. Location is perfect, 1 minute from Plaza Mayor, 30 seconds from San Miguel Square, near all the tapas bars at La Latina but with no noise, Puñonrostro is a pedestrian street. Beautiful furniture, great open kitchen, provençal style dinning table and lots of natural sunlight, a 4th floor apartment with elevator. Again, the place I'd love to stay if I was visiting this great city.
