CALLE LA PALMA
A chic two bedroom flat in hipster Malasaña.
CALLE LA PALMA, MALASAÑA
This 2 bedroom 2 bathroom second floor flat is located on the hip Calle La Palma, just minutes away from the Tribunal metro in Justicia and Calle Fuencarral. With three floor to ceiling shuttered windows with their three south facing balconies overlooking the street the apartment enjoys superb natural light throughout the day.
The property has been completely reconfigured by the current owner in order to create a modern and airy space using the highest quality materials and finishes. The new layout comprises an airy white living and dining area of over 26m2 with two balconies, which is overlooked by the modern open plan kitchen with its grey silestone breakfast bar and all appliances; a double guest room with the third south facing balcony overlooking the street, a full guest bathroom with shower, and – down the corridor and connected by a door which ensures complete privacy from the rest of the home – the double bedroom master suite, with its large private dressing room and bathroom beyond, both with windows overlooking the interior courtyard.
There are beautiful oak wood floors throughout except in the bathrooms and kitchens, where stunning geometric patterned tiles have been used to great effect, updated versions of mosaic flooring of yesteryear in Madrid.
Ceiling heights just under 3m, the walls are perfectly smooth white throughout, with the exception of a subtle feature wall in the living room hung with an elegant grey wallpaper, and a textured copper coloured wall paper in the dressing room.
Kitchen appliances include panelled fridge freezer, integrated oven, ceramic hob and dishwasher, all from Bosch.
The windows are energy efficient double glazed bi-colour windows, respecting the exterior colour of all the windows on the building’s protected façade, while white on the interior to blend perfectly with the white walls, insulating against both heat and cold, as well as any street noise.
The flat juxtaposes the latest in modern design and architecture while retaining many of the original features. The century old wooden shutters and connecting doors have been sanded back and repainted fresh white, the vertical wooden beams either side of the kitchen are sanded and varnished, leaving the natural honey colour of the wood, and the front door retains the original colours, peephole and brass plaque.
The flat is decorated in neutral tones throughout, with the occasional splash of colour and is being sold furnished, down to cushions and towels.
This flat is the perfect investment for anyone looking for a central Madrid pied a terre, perhaps for Spanish or international students at one of the universities or business schools in Madrid, or as an investment property for rental, whether short or long term, as it in an area of high demand for both.
The transport links are ideal with the Tribunal metro and bus lines just a couple of minutes walk from the flat.
