This converted warehouse in the Palermo Soho neighbourhood is a unique Buenos Aires rental. Spread between a 3 bedroom main house and a detatched 1 bedroom flat, it boasts 3900 sf. of indoor living area, as well as a large private outdoor courtyard and decked pool area. It has been renovated in a modern, mediteranean style, with high ceilings and wooden floorboards throughout.
The ground floor of the main house is a 2300 sq.ft combined living and kitchen area with 17ft high ceilings. This space is made up of an open-plan kitchen with outdoor argentine style “parrilla” barbecue at the back. In front of the 20 ft long cooking island, is a glass-topped dining table with space and settings for 12 people. The rest of the downstairs area consists of a central games section with a convertible pool/table-tennis table, and a television area made up of a 27ft U-shaped goose-down sofa facing a column-mounted 55-inch LED flatscreen display with DVD player and digital TV. There is also a downstairs guest bathroom located under the stairs.
The three bedrooms are located upstairs. The master suite is located at the back of the house and includes a custom made “King”-sized double bed, personal television and Bose Ipod/CD/Radio system; and is illuminated by a 12ft electric skylight and wall-length windows that give onto an internal patio/garden area. The en-suite bathroom features a square, tiled jacuzzi bath and rain style shower, and a large wash area with two sinks and two large mirrors. The bathroom also has a large walk-in closet, and another is located in the bedroom area. The other two bedrooms face toward the courtyard/pool area at the front of the house; both have personal televisions and are en-suite with combined shower/baths. The first bedroom contains 1 custom made “Queen”-sized double bed and the other contains 2, with room for up to 4 guests.
The separate flat at the front of the house is reached by a metal staircase from the pool area. It includes a double bed and personal television, a private kitchen and en-suite bathroom with bath/shower combination.
Other features include an electrically opening garage for one car and an office area on the first floor with desk and printer. The whole house is covered by high-speed wi-fi internet, the bedrooms include the highest quality linen, towels and bathrobes, and all the televisions are connected to local cable with high-definition channels.
I had a great time. Buenos Aires is a "Bella" city! La pase muy bien. La casa y los Argentinos son estupendos.
