Buenos Aires Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4. Luxury apt. Elevator

Step back in time to Buenos Aires Golden Age. This French historical apartment was built in 1928. It was lovingly restored in keeping with the elegance and glamour of that time. Decorated with crystal chandeliers and period antiques, we have created an environment that honors the original home. It’s like a fantasy that transports you back in time.. ..a time when Buenos Aires embraced everything French. They became known as the Paris of South America. The French were the last word in style and good taste. A time when the women went to Paris for their clothing and architects were brought over from France to design the beautiful buildings. We’re pleased to offer to you The House of Chanel, named after the “first lady” of style, Coco Chanel.

About Lynn Carlton

I have always loved to fix and design. When I began my real estate career at 24, I soon realized that the best part of the job was meeting with architects and interior designers and watching as the more artistic elements of construction fell into place. After 13 years in real estate, I built two homes, vacation rentals on magical Orcas Island in Washington State. Then I undertook a major remodel of a cabin on the water. Something clicked during that process of transforming the cabin into a unique work of art; I knew I had found my purpose in life.

Through the next several years, I transformed some 30 rather decrepit homes into fresh, beautiful residences, working tirelessly at the rate of two or three a year. Then I decided to turn my creative attention to designing and constructing very special vacation accommodations. I moved to Mexico, the land of color and craft, and began working there.

The most exciting phase of building a new place is when everything gets pulled together. I love the details, making sure that one thing plays with another in perfect harmony. During the process, I'm absolutely consumed. Each project takes every ounce of my imaginative life -- and I love it.

I enjoy being able to see the possibilities in a wreck of a dwelling. When I first set eyes on a place in need of a make-over, I see what it could be. I can envision how the finished place will look...and that vision guides me.

I work an average of six to eight months on each project, directing a local architect and construction team, supervising every step along the way to make certain my vision is embodied in bricks and mortar, paint and plaster.

I'm always on the hunt for that specific hand-selected piece that blends with everything else. The beauty of Mexico is being able to design a particular piece that can be made by one of the talented artisans that works beautifully...like a glorious puzzle.'

Lynn Carlton purchased this apartment in 2008

Guestbook comments from the manager

My friend and I were the very first guests to this flat and "oh my god" were we in wonderland when we opened that front door! I personally have been to Buenos Aires 18 times and this property is the most luxurious I have seen thus far - it's right out of "Architectural Digest." I also consider myself an art deco connoisseur having had 3 antique shops in San Francisco, Ca. specializing in art deco and this deco remodel is true to the period as well as the furnishings and furniture. BRAVO!

1920's grandeur and oppulence, 21st century luxury

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is everything that the advertisment says! It is in a quiet, safe but vibrant barrio of BsAs! It is art deco in it's style and ambiance but totally up to date for comfort living ( unlimited hot water, dish washer, washer/dryer).

I stayed here with my daughter and son in law and ended up celebrating her transition to fellowship in Paediatrics (New Zealand), so many bottles of wine were quaffed!

We loved it!

Stunning restoration.

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, spacious apartment in convenient location. Mariana provided outstanding support for everything we needed, including arranging for transport to and from the airport. Walking distance to the Subte Line H, the National Museum of Fine Arts, the very good weekend craft show at Plaza Francia, two supermarkets, several good restaurants, and the Village Shopping Mall with Cinema and on the third floor a money exchange. The desk clerks at the Dazzler Hotel on Las Heras were helpful in arranging a day trip to an estancia.

Wonderful apartment in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. We arrived to a beautiful apartment in the Recoleta, clean and and so beautifully decorated. The location was wonderful, within walking distance of so many great sites and restaurants. Claudio picked us up at the airport and Mariana was waiting at the apartment to show us around the unit. This apartment would be highly recommended to anyone visiting Buenos Aires, we stayed a week and enjoyed everything. Thank you

Charming apartment in the heart of Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (my coworker and I) for a week on a business trip and were very pleased with the apartment : safe, spacious, well furnished, perfect for a feel like home stay. Mariana was such a great host and I also recommend their driver, Claudio. We hired him for a week, he's very professional and trusty. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who wants to enjoy one of the best neihghbouroud of Buenos Aires.

Notes:
The flat is housed in a special historical building that has just ten private homes. It was designed by the architects, Gelly Cantillo and Moy. Several of their buildings are published in the 2008 book, Buenos Aires Art Deco y Racionalismo. It was built in 1928 in the French Art Deco style. You’ll know you’re somewhere special when you walk through the stylized Art Deco doors and enter the marble entry with the period wrought-iron elevator. I did a complete remodel in 2010, paying careful attention to restoring the original floors, doors, and door hardware. I incorporated all new luxury conveniences and materials into the restoration: granite counters in the kitchen and classic black-and-white granite floors in the kitchen and bathroom. To achieve the feeling of high elegance, I used quality materials throughout, from the faucets to the light fixtures. An important antique chandelier glistens in the entry. Several French Art Deco antiques and light fixtures add elegance.
