Impressive 14 ft high ceilings and hand painted colorful cement tiles. Lots of natural light comes in through restored original 10 ft glass doors that open up to the Caribbean breeze and the views of the cobblestone’s streets of Old San Juan. Brand new electric and plumbing. Walk with me, and let’s start the tour at the amazing 2nd level foyer with a beautiful foyer that magically connects 3 amazing suite-like units. Each with a different vibe. As an example, the Vault Suite; a one-of-a-kind place, being one of Old San Juan first established banks, the vault remains, and will sure be the conversation topic and many selfies.

Beautifully dressed stairways designed with textured and brick walls will take you to the inviting Luxury Penthouse level. Comprised of 3 amazing bedrooms, plus a 4th bedroom loft style, 3 gorgeous baths including the primary double-sized shower and lots of light and storage. Your eyes will immediately be drawn to the impressive 730 ft2 outdoor terrace with BBQ and bar station, outdoor shower, lounge area, Trex deck, partial water views and the perfect spot for sun-bathing, stargazing at night, read a great book or enjoy good music, food and wine with family and friends!

And for sure, the fun will gravitate to the heart of every home, and this property certainly delivers with its modern open concept eat-in Kitchen, where all will gather, have fun, and create new recipes & memories for a lifetime.

Old San Juan is the oldest city of the United States, celebrating its 500-year-old beginnings, and being recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spanish colonial architecture surrounds the “Walled City”. Its colors and cobblestone streets remind you of the cultural history in every corner. Great food, music and art is also part of the Old San Juan soul, now more vibrant than ever, with a modern twist and accommodations known and recognized by the world travelers and connoisseurs. Renown local and international artist, perform and present their art here and in the shaded by mature trees plazas all around, or close by at the Newly built Convention Center and Downtown known as “El Distrito” for big concerts and party-like fun with the newest in technology. The Escambrón beach, Marina, Lagoon and Condado area are a 5-minute scooter or drive away. 10 minutes from the biggest Shopping Center in the Caribbean and 15 minutes from International Airport and Financial district.

A morning walk on the northern side Old San Juan-Mar Caribe trails and around the 16th century Old Fortress, “El Morro”, and La Perla will be great for your soul, and for sure will give you the fresh air you’ll need to start your day. Or if you prefer the south side, the Bay area with the ports, cruises, the freshly baked goods, and brewed coffee, definitely another way to boost your spirits every day. A couple of blocks away; the Farmers Market, art galleries, jewelries, little shops, boutiques and big brands-name and fashion designers. Watch the sunsets, eat, dance, or get immersed in the multicultural universe of the city, a blend of people from the Globe.
