Condo/Apartment
This newly restored 90-year-old home still has its original aristocratic details, yet the bathrooms and kitchen have been renovated for modern standards. With a focus on comfort and coziness, it's the perfect place for a family or group of friends. Tucked away on the quiet tree-lined street called Piedras is this remarkable three-bedroom home. From the street, walk up the stairs of the private entrance to the foyer (the first photograph). A gallery/hallway leads down from the living areas to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The gallery is typical of upper middle class Argentine homes built in this era. Barracas, our neighborhood, is full of homes like these.

With a focus on comfort and coziness, it's the perfect place for a family or group of friends. Tucked away on the quiet tree-lined street called Piedras is this remarkable three-bedroom home. From the street, walk up the stairs of the private entrance to the foyer (the first photograph). A gallery/hallway leads down from the living areas to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The gallery is typical of upper middle class Argentine homes built in this era. Barracas, our neighborhood, is full of homes like these. They're not apartments, but they are also not single standing homes. They're called chorizo (sausage) style because they are long and narrow. The three bedrooms each have doors that lead out onto the gallery. There are also doors between each room so that in winter months, when it's chilly out there, you can keep the French doors closed and move throughout the heated spaces. There is a queen bed in the first room, a full in the second room, and a king or two twins in the master bedroom. Each bedroom has a powerful ceiling fan. The master bathroom is finished in polished cement. It has a shower while the guest bathroom has an antique tub. Details like the high ceilings, massive French doors, original tile floors and pine floors, beautiful iron work on the balconies, make this home special. And the decor fits perfectly with the vibe of the neighborhood. Unpretentious, relaxed, vintage, yet bold. The kitchen in all its funky quirkiness is awesome. There is even a built-in pizza stone in the oven. Throw open the balcony doors and live like a local in this lesser-known residential barrio just next to San Telmo. It's one of the prettiest areas of Buenos Aires.More

About the neighbourhood
Barracas is an upper middle class neighborhood just outside of San Telmo, which is the oldest and most bohemian area of the city. It would take about 15 minutes to walk to Plaza Dorrego, the heart of San Telmo. Barracas is a residential area. You'll find local veggie vendors, fishmongers, small grocery stores, bakeries, etc. within walking distance. It's super quiet and really beautiful. We are also one block from Avenida Caseros where you'll find some of the city's best cafes, restaurants, and bars, many of which have outdoor seating.
Getting around
We tend to take the bus or a taxi more than the subway just because of convenience. To take public buses you will need the SUBE card. We have one for you in the apartment. You can also use it on the subway. In my guide to the city, I outline transportation tips and include two great maps that will help you get your bearings. I highly recommend getting the app Como Llego. It's super helpful. You can put in the two addresses and it will give you a variety of options for getting from Point A to B.
