This beautiful home is located in the heart of the city and has been remodelled for life in the 21st century.
It was originally built in the 19th century, as a home for the famous Ramos Pinto family. Adriano Ramos Pinto was a master wine trader and this house was for his grandmother. The wine Barron later sold the house.
Seven years ago, the property was refurbished with the highest quality thermal and sound insulation and a heating system that runs throughout the entire building. Energy efficiency was the focus of the remodel, and it has a Grade 'A' energy rating. The smart design of the house uses every inch of space possible, with endless storage space that is all flush and integrated into the walls.
The building is a duplex with three floors of space and ideal for a family. Plenty of natural light enters the home all day and the finishings in white help reflect soft light in all living spaces. Wide, well-designed stairways connect each floor with ease. If ever desired, an elevator could be installed as well.
There is a home office at the front of the building, separated completely from the home with its own entrance, on the ground floor. The back yard includes a wooden deck and a walkway to a full laundry room. The laundry room building has a storage room and inputs for both washing machine and dryer units.
The living room has a fireplace with a 14-metre security chimney, providing maximum safety and efficiency. American pinewood floors are found throughout the home, adding to the bright interior. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a Roman bathtub and electric blinds next to the bed for convenience.
The other two bedrooms are connected, one is a mezzanine loft, both with access to a bathroom equipped with a shower. The custom made double-pane windows open to the street with original Juliette balconies. LED light fixtures are found throughout the house and the staircase has a large, convex skylight for natural light all day.
The highest quality sound and thermal insulation have been installed throughout the entire home for the absolute best comfort and privacy.
This home is located in a wonderful part of the city, allowing immediate access to services, transportation and all the amenities you may want from the city.
