Located in one of the classic buildings on the street Gelly y Obes (named after one of the many Argentine statesmen of the 1800s), the apartment is guarded by a friendly old caretaker who looks as though he might be a direct descendant of said statesman. Entering the apartment you note the contrast with the area’s old-school atmosphere-- the interior has been carefully renovated and upgraded to feature the latest in technology and comfort. The American owner, like so many of us, prefers to live with today’s creature comforts of Apple TV, high-speed internet, imported appliances, and top of the line cookware.
Two full bedrooms and the re-imagined servant’s quarters (a remnant of the early 20th century lifestyle) offer plenty of space for guests, and the comfortable L-shaped couch invites you all to sit and stay awhile. Like cooking? The kitchen is both spacious and luminous, with a casual dining table for four and a fancy arrangement for six in the adjoining dining room—although meals made with ingredients from the local vendors might taste even better when enjoyed on the balcony. The 11th floor view is unobstructed, allowing your mind to wander undisturbed while you enjoy the sunshine and a classic Malbec.
One of the most affluent areas of the city, Recoleta boasts excellent shopping, restaurants and stunning embassies. Some of the major tourist highlights, including the Recoleta Cemetery, striking French architecture and the Floralis Genérica sculpture, are nearby.
