Nestled in the heart of Madrid, this sophisticated, split-level apartment is steeped in majestic charm. You wouldn’t be able to tell from its modern interior, but this home dates all the way back to the 17th century when it was used as a residential palace for members of Spain’s nobility. So, if you’re looking to live like a king, you’ve come to the right place. Take a moment to soak up your home’s authentic design features – think period balconies and original panelling – then step inside where you’ll be met by an elegant entrance hall leading up to your apartment. Situated on the third floor, this place boasts sweeping views of the city, so you can save yourself a trip up La Almudena Cathedral. Gaze down at bustling Plaza de Tirso de Molina from your dedicated home office or make your way down to basement level and while away the afternoon by the indoor pool. City living doesn’t get better than that.

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.
