A cool and green open-plan apartment with sweeping forest views from the bedroom, private garden, and sun-drenched office/2nd. bedroom. Kitchen wraps around a grand tree and restful deck. Peace, quiet and a beautiful view in central and vibrant Jardim Botânico.
This entirely independent two-bedroom apartment is accessed via the outside area of a one-family residence on a quiet street in Jardim Botânico. After descending a number of stairs, guests will be rewarded with stunning views of the imperial palm trees of the Botanical Garden, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas and the Tijuca Forest, the largest urban forest in the world.
Recently built, the 60m2 apartment has a large bedroom (with brand new box spring full bed) opening onto a private terrace and garden. The living room and full kitchen are uniquely integrated around the foot of a large tree, encased by a private seating deck. Enjoy a glass of wine with a view while keeping company to whomever is cooking!
The office is fully reversible as a second bedroom, and is equipped with a Sofa-Bed. The sliding door makes the room totally private, and the large workspace and high-speed wireless internet makes it an ideal space to work and play. Just don't get distracted with the view!
The bathroom has high-pressure hot and cold water and a great view from the shower.
The open kitchen has ample working space, an electric cooktop, state-of-the art combined microwave and electric oven, full fridge and comes complete with all utensils. Cooking overlooking the tree-bench is a true joy. Eat on either the high counter top with bar stools inside, or on the full table on the veranda, or on the garden bench overlooking the magnificent views of the Botanical Gardens.
Jardim Botânico is naturally substantially cooler than the beach areas of Ipanema, Leblon and Copabana and the apartment is already airy and light. Just in case, we have two brand new split air conditioning units (in the bedroom and the office) for hot nights.
Between the double-bed, and the pull-out couch, the apartment sleeps comfortably up to 4 - perfect for one or two couples, a family or small group of friends.
In the service area there is a brand new washer/dryer and private laundry facilities.
