The modernized kitchen is both functional and comfortable, with a touch of classical elements left in the original floors and the intricate ceiling plaster. The kitchen is ample enough for a dedicated dining area and is fitted with modern appliances that harmonize with the vintage charm of the apartment.

The double reception room is a generous 35 m² (376 sq ft) and offers flexibility in its layout and uses (living, formal dining, office, etc).

The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable, and yet again the high ceilings lend to a spacious, open feel – perfect for a good night's rest. Yes again, they all feature that stunning chevron parquet flooring.
