The rate posted is for the house for families and without the servants quarters or the office. Obviously it is more for the entire house, fims, photo shoots, events. This historic mansion--a 'Casco Historico' or 'Landmarked Building) is unique even for this section of San Telmo--currently the trendiest and most central neighborhood in Buenos Aires. It is perhaps the only surviving house in its original conditional in what was the wealthiest neighborhood just after the turn of the century. And in addition to being the sole known survivor as a private residence totally unchanged. And it was the costliest mansion in the area and is unlike anything even at that time. It was custom built by an immensely wealthy family with four large bedrooms and six servant bedrooms--a genuine 'upstairs / downstairs' house. I will send you the websites as a film and photo-shoot location if interested--as well as the website for events--and newer photos if interested.
I did not buy the house to rent. At one time I lived there and furnished it for myself and my family and has everything for living including a lot of art and a large library. The kitchen is fully equipped and the sheets cotton, etc. There is a fully equipped office with Wi-Fi--which is not included in the rate.
It is a unique place for short-term rental--and the house can be dividedup-- it is not required to rent the entire house.
There was a garden, a swimming pool and an enormous Argentine barbecue.
The pictures on view do not show the place as it is now. I can however have newer photos sent--and will delineate precisely what is included in the rate.
I am an American expatriate who travels--and own property worldwide. I no longer live in Argentina more than a few months a year.
I have many friends (tango teachers, sailers and people who like to have a mild or wild time -- and can help first time visitors find what they are looking for, day and night).
Why did I buy the property? It was a singular opportunity. The peso had crashed and it was possible to buy this sort of house for a small fraction of its value and labor so inexpensive that it was possible to restore it.
San Telmo was a slum and so spared the loss of its charm. It had been a 'dangerous' neighborhood. So most of the original architecture has remained. The streets are still often cobblestone. It is the antique center of Buenos Aires. There is a large and fine park 2 blocks away. And it is quintessentially safe!
