A love affair with one of the most beautiful Latin cultures in South America, with a major European flare at a fraction of the price. My love for the arts, tango dancing, antiques and warm people is the main reason I purchased my little gem.
Marie purchased this house in 2005
This is one of the last complete homes left available in all of Palermo. Despite having many offers from developers to buy it and tear it down to convert it into a commercial building, I will never sell it. It is completely authentic with some modern updates. I just love the original tall wooden doors, marble staircase, slate floors and leaded stain glass windows.
There is a lot of space and with an open loft type feel to it so everyone can stay joined together, if so desired or have complete privacy and independence should that be the preference. Also, this is a very residential street despite being in the most fashionable areas of Palermo Hollywood, so its more quiet. Location is walking distance to all the shop, restaurants, cafes and bars.
There are many amazing sites to see in Palermo other than the lavish gardens, important places such as:
The Botanical Garden, also designed by Charles Thays. Many different and exotic species of plants from Asia, Europe and South America are planted together with bushes and flowers. You can also admire* beautiful sculptures inside. The botanical school gives special gardening lessons.
The Zoo created in 1874, it is directly across the Botanical Garden and the Sociedad Rural Argentina. This is a special place for a long day stroll. You will be able to enjoy different animal species in their habitats, such as lakes, jungles, mountains, temples and bridges very accurately reproduced. Important sculptures and chapels replicas can also be admired.
Plaza Italia: In front of both the zoo and the botanical garden, Plaza Italia is a strategic point in the city. Many bus lines as well as the subway allow converge into the square facilitating the connection with different zones of the city. Plaza Italia houses the monument to Giuseppe Garibaldi.
Sociedad Rural Argentina: Founded in 1866, this large surface houses the annual agricultural fair in July. The rest of the year different shows and exhibitions are held, such as Feria del Libro (The book fair), or the present ¨Opera Pampa¨, a native musical.
The Rosedal (Rose Garden): Inaugurated in the early 1900’s, it contains more than 1000 different roses from around the world. A time you should not miss, specially between September and March when roses are in bloom.. Music concerts, theatre exhibitions are often on stage. You can also rent a pedal boat in the lake.
The Planetarium Galileo Galilei: Inaugurated during the 60’s, this planetarium houses an astronomy museum. Also to enjoy there are star and light shows, exhibitions, and seminars that are held within this planet shaped blue building. A scenario of thousands of stars can be observed inside.
In the same area of the Green Palermo or Palermo Gardens , the Argentine Polo Field resides, the Japanese Garden, the Hippodrome, and other stadiums and shopping centers. You can also find various catholic churches, a mosque, and many more interesting and important monuments.
Another interesting sub-division is Palermo Chico or Barrio Parque. The most elegant and traditional place in Buenos Aires. Its old and French-style mansions are worth a look during your stroll around Palermo.
While the “green” Palermo has always been wealthy and fine, the other Palermo, today known as Palermo Viejo, was a working class neighborhood of cobblestones streets, little and humble houses, surrounded by many warehouses and factories.
Artists, young designers, intellectuals and simple inhabitants of Palermo Viejo were the pioneers of this new lifestyle about 25 years ago.
