Fantastic four bedroom apartment is in a newly renovated 18th century palace close to the River Tejo in Lisbon
This superb new build four bedroom apartment is in an 18th Century palace which is currently being renovated close to the banks of the River Tejo in Lisbon. Completion will be in April 2007.
The project includes twenty six unique and individual apartments of varying sizes all of which will be finished to the highest quality. The building is being sympathetically renovated, preserving its original façade and staircase. The apartments will contain a great mix of modern fittings and, where possible, the original features will be retained. Some of the apartments have a private garden or terrace.
The Palace of the Junqueira is a beautiful and grand building that was constructed for Jose de Saldanha at the start of the 18th century. Queens, Princes and many members of the Portuguese aristocracy have lived there.
The large living room has high ceilings and a south facing aspect and is filled with natural light for much of the day. The four large double bedrooms (including two suites with en suite bathrooms and dressing rooms) both have views over the communal gardens and courtyard.
The apartments will be fitted with Italian designer kitchens and bathrooms. There will be black marble floors in the kitchen and bathrooms whilst the living areas will have American oak. All the apartments come with combined air conditioning and heating as standard. This apartment also has two car parking spaces underneath the building.
The location of the apartment is fantastic as it is within easy walking distance of the UN World Heritage site of Belem with its numerous art galleries and museums. The River Tejo is a short walk away and the banks are lined with good bars and restaurants. There is an excellent marina in close proximity. The 24th April Bridge is close by offering easy access to the south of Portugal and the road leading to the nearby beaches at Cascais and Guincho is a two minute drive.
This is a great opportunity to buy a beautiful apartment with lots character and history. It is in a perfect location and this combined with the very high quality finish means that it offers great value for money and a solid investment.
