About our home

One of a kind, unique townhouse in a charming historically protected 100 year old colonial house ("casa chorizo") that was converted in the 1990s into five, 3-level (2-story) townhouses. Each has its own individual entrance off a long interior plant-filled garden walkway, and each has its own private roof top terrace. Very little street noise because the units are built back away from the street. Located in downtown Buenos Aires, in the the old colonial historic district (the "casco historico") in the neighborhood of SAN TELMO. Open floor plan: with a large living room, dining room, kitchen area and one toilette downstairs, and two bedrooms with two full bathrooms in suite upstairs. Window airconditoner in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Two spiral staircases take you from the ground floor to the second floor and then up to the private roof top terrace. Tall 11 foot ceilings, lots of windows (eastern exposure), great light. Rooftop terrace has a patio set and built in Argentine-style grille for barbecues.

And if you have a bigger group or family gathering, we also have a one bedroom, one bath townhouse (@550 square feet) adjacent to this one, also with it's own private roof top terrace (@ 200 square feet).

Both of these townhouses are also FOR SALE. More information available by email.


More about us

  1. Just as the city of Buenos Aires is known as "the Paris of South America," so the neighborhood of San Telmo can be compared to Montmartre in Paris or Greenwich Village in Manhattan. If you have a passion for history and old colonial architecture, appreciate social and cultural diversity, and thrive in an atmosphere that is colorful, artistic, bohemian, and made up of people from all walks of life, then you'll feel right at home in San Telmo! (If not, then you might want to look for accomodations in the more affluent downtown neighborhoods in Buenos Aires such as: Puerto Madero, Barrio Norte or Recoleta).

Where is it?


Fabulous location in the very heart of San Telmo, just steps away from the old Mercado San Telmo and the Plaza Dorrego. This neighborhood has a decidedly urban bohemian feel and is the home to many artists, musicians, actors, and film makers. Lately it has become a popular backdrop for American and European production companies shooting TV commercials. Also located nearby, the Argentine Film Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and the private film school: La Universidad del Cine (FUC). Cobblestone streets, beautiful old colonial architecture, a multitude of great cafes, bars, restaurants, tango clubs, museums, tons of antique shops, and host to a huge flea/antiques market every Sunday in the Plaza Dorrego. Centrally located downtown, in close proximity to everything, with easy access to mass transit, subway, buses, etc. Just 8 blocks to the famous Plaza de Mayo and the Presidential "Casa Rosada." Only 7 blocks to the newly renovated upscale port area known as PUERTO MADERO, with its high end restaurants, marina, yacht club, floating casinos, and great nightlife along the river.. as well as the Parque Ecologico (Ecological River Park) with its hike and bike trails, lakes, lagoons, bird watching, and lovely picnic spots. Only 4.5 blocks to the grand avenue "the 9 de Julio.: A 5 minute cab ride to Buquebus, the catamaran ferry service that leaves from a dock at the north end of Puerto Madero and makes daily trips to the cities of Montevideo and Colonia in Uruguay
