277 m2





If you appreciate turn-of-the-century buildings, period ambiences, and would relish living in such a milieu, view this flat for sale on the erstwhile Sugár út, today’s Andrássy út. The property faces the Opera House, a creation by Architect Miklós Ybl. To the left stands the Ballet Institute, designed by Ödön Lechner’s plans.   To the right is the Művész Kávéház [Artists’ Café] from 1898. All of these now form part of a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The property for sale occupies the topmost (4th) floor of a Neo-Renaissance building (built in 1882) that has undergone interior and exterior renovation. A unique feature of the building is the wrought-iron staircase decoration, a work by the then unknown Gustave Eiffel. The internal duplex flat was created in 2012, concurrent with the building’s renovation, through an upper-floor extension atop the building, alongside two other large flats as neighbours. Its entrance is accessed from the closed stairwell, secured by a safety door and fitted with an alarm system.

In reality, the flat boasts an exceptional 277 sq (≈ 2981.6 sq ft) m area.

The lower level comprises a vast sitting-room/living room/dining area suitable for hosting receptions. A fireplace you can walk around lends true exclusivity to the sitting-room’s uniqueness. This effect is accentuated by the Opera House-facing terrace, which is sunny, quiet and protected by a classical railing.

Adjacent to the living area is the study, whose exquisite bookshelves constitute an artwork in itself. The fully equipped and fitted kitchen is also situated on this level. Furthermore, this level houses an independent suite with a balcony, private bathroom and wardrobe, usable as a self-contained apartment.

The upper level contains two more suites, each with en-suite bathrooms and wardrobes for the bedrooms. An additional, exceptional feature is a 30 sq m (≈ 323 sq ft) walk-in, mirrored dressing room, truly enhancing the flat’s comforts.

The flat’s fittings exemplify state-of-the-art technology (kitchen appliances, bespoke kitchen units, air conditioning, central heating, underfloor heating). The flat was constructed in 2012 with new technical and aesthetic solutions, including a new roof structure, as well as new doors, windows and utility lines. Period restorations were undertaken, such as the entrance, inner courtyard, stairwell, railings, and installation of a new lift.

The asking price for the property is HUF990,000,000 (EUR2,540,000).
