Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Cool, quiet and pristine, this contemporary apartment is all mineral tones and an organic partnership of wood and metal. We love how the home is intriguingly spread over different levels. Drop down a couple of steps to find a well-appointed kitchen cleverly concealed in the living space, while a dining set takes centre stage on the raised platform. A writing desk takes care of remote workers, while those visiting for pleasure can kick back on the plump sofa. Step outside and find yourself right in the heart of Madrid. You’re a fifteen-minute walk away from the masterpieces in the Prado Museum and only five minutes to the buzzing Plaza Mayor. When it comes to food and drink, we recommend taking the twenty-minute stroll over to the trendy Malasaña barrio, where modern gastrobars rub shoulders with old-school eateries.

Local guide


About Lavapiés

Like many neighbourhoods on the rise, Lavapiés proudly displays its rough edges. The Times Magazine has recently included it in the 50 best neighbourhoods to live in the world, and it’s not hard to understand its appeal. It’s a melting pot of cultures, bravely experimenting with international influences. Lavapiés is full of contrast — some streets have already embraced a more luxurious vibe with chic boutiques and fusion restaurants popping up every month, while others are still filled with artistic squats and street vendors. It’s the ultimate antidote to boredom.
