A penthouse with a large terrace, views of the Royal Palace and Sabatini Gardens, an extremely privileged position in the area surrounding Plaza de Oriente, where one will only find large classical buildings with private homes alongside the Royal Theatre.
The chance to enjoy such a location will undoubtedly make your stay in the city so pleasurable as to be unforgettable. Just being able to admire the magnificently clear skies of Madrid and the views of the Royal Palace and the Campo del Moro will be a memorable experience.
The apartment is situated in a historical aristocratic building, beautifully renovated while maintaining the essence of the original construction; a curious feature of the building is the elevator, an antique one of a kind rarely found nowadays, since the majority of these large buildings, in which originally there were only a few very large dwellings, have now been converted into modern apartments, with the interior of the building itself also having been renovated.
The property is in fact a penthouse, 80 square metres in size with a 35-square-metre terrace, and has room for four people; there is one independent bedroom and a bathroom.
The apartment is located on the fifth floor of the building and it should be pointed out that the elevator only goes up to the fourth floor. From thereon one climbs up a narrow staircase with not too many steps to reach the old-fashioned lofts where the property is situated.
An important feature of the apartment is the particular spaciousness of the main rooms such as the living room and the bedroom. They are also both very bright, not only because of the light that floods in from outside but also because the walls are practically completely made up of large, wide double-glazed windows, fitted with fine curtains in order to filter the brightness and blinds to close the light out completely.
The living room is simple and very practical, designed with comfort in mind. The furniture has been limited to the essentials: a fine L-shaped sofa where one can relax in comfort and which can also be turned into a bed, a large, modern flat-screen television and DVD player, and a dining area surrounded by windows, with a round table for four people.
The bedroom is also particularly spacious; it has a double bed, bedside tables with lamps and a large built-in wardrobe.
The kitchen is small but very well-equipped with all modern comforts, including a dishwasher, washing machine, and both microwave and conventional ovens. The bathroom has a shower and bathtub and is fitted with a comfy heated towel rail.
apartment also has wi-fi connection, independent heating and air conditioning.

The Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio Real) was built in the eighteenth century, by order of Felipe V, on an ancient site of the old Alcazar, which before was a Muslim castle. Located with a privileged outlook, that offers views over the mountains of Madrid. Its construction was completed in 1764. Sabatini made the southeast wing and the big staircase of honour. The area is square with a large central courtyard. In the past the kings resided permanently at the palace, but now only carry out formal activities and events of protocol. It is an impressive building that provides guided tours for visitors to enjoy the magnificent estate lined with tapestries and antique furniture and objects of great value received by the royalty over the years, as well as getting a glimpse of paintings of Velazquez, Goya, Rubens, El Greco and Caravaggio.
The Palace is located next to the Oriental Palace (Plaza de Oriente,) a rectangular plaza with of monumental sense of character. One of its main drivers was the king Joseph I, who at the time ordered the demolition of medieval houses which were located on its site.
At the other end of the square is the Royal Theater (Teatro Real) that is the opera house of Madrid and is considered one of the most important in Spain.
In this area there are many gorgeous streets full of charm, delicious restaurants and famous bars of the city.

Maintaining the décor of the olden days and where you can also enjoy tapas based on rations and castizos dishes this is authentic Madrid as its best.
