A Lisbon Townhouse with Historic Charm
In the heart of Alfama, the most historic neighborhood in Lisbon, stands a stunning townhouse packed with historic charm. The 17th-century house offers original azulejos, frescoes, high ceilings, and river views.
The historic house has undergone a complete renovation turning it into a splendid family home where past and present meet. Historic elements like wooden beams, ornate tin-glazed ceramic azulejos, and 17th-century frescoes are combined with a modern metal staircase and handcrafted wood.
The stucco on the walls is created by a famous Chilean artist, and throughout the home, a wooden floor brings warmth to every room.
The reception rooms in the house have views on two sides. From one side, you overlook the Tagus River, and on the other side, the rooms overlook the Sao Pedro Tower square with its fountain and orange tree.
The metal staircase creates an open, flowing space to the first floor rooms.
The walls on the first-floor landing are adorned with original frescoes.
The house features two en-suite bedrooms. In this bedroom, an opening has been made in the wall between the bedroom and the bathroom. The original wooden structure of the wall has been left exposed, adding a historic and unique feature wall to the room.
The bathroom can be closed off with curtains in beige and blue/gray shades.
The wonderful children’s room and play area features the original wooden beams on the ceiling.
This wonderfully renovated historic townhouse in Lisbon is currently for sale at Fantastic Frank
