This beautiful historical building in the center of Montevideo was originally built in 1914 by architect A.R. Campos and has been lovingly restored by its current owners about 10 years ago. It looks like something off a movie set and is a real treasure. In fact, it is often used for making movies. The house has three stories with a retail store on the ground level with its own entrance. A staircase is leading up to the first floor into the hall with amazing carvings on the high ceilings and tall doors leading into the different bedrooms and living room. There are 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on this floor. On the second floor are the kitchen and laundry room and the exit door to a large roof terrace full of mature plants and comfortable outdoor seating areas. On the top floor is another en-suite bedroom with a dressing room. There would be room to add a kitchen on the main first floor if desired.
The house is currently being used as a private residence but some bedrooms have been rented out and the current owner would be happy to share their extensive contact list with a new owner. The apartment is exquisitely renovated with items sourced locally and imported from abroad.
There is a self-contained shop on the ground floor with its own entrance. The current tenant is a high-end picture framer, who is charming, super reliable, and has just renewed a five-year lease.
The location is in Centro and neighbours include the Tile Museum and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Centro is not an area where you’ll find many expats but the current owners love it and feel very comfortable and safe there. They walk everywhere and have never felt the need for a car.
