You can buy this cosy and very centric apartment in the district of Arganzuela in Madrid. Located between the historic centre of Madrid and the southern district of Legazpi, Arganzuela is crossed by the Calle de los Embajadores, the Paseo de las Delicias, and borders the Parque Río, a green park along the Manzanares river on about 2 km - 1¼ mile. The flat is near the Plaza de la Beata Maria Ana de Jesús, inside the M-30 motor way (the centre nearest ring road).
The apartment is on the 1st floor with lift, overlooking the street at the foot of the building. Past the front door, a corridor opens to your right onto an independent kitchen followed by a shower room, then leads you to the living room. The latter gives access to two bedrooms, one with built-in cupboard and the other currently used as an office area.
The entrance, the kitchen and the shower room have been completely renovated at the end of 2010, with a new boiler, new windows and air conditioning. The apartment is equipped with tilt-and-turn windows with double insulating glazing, bars on the yard side and roller-blinds, and the comfort includes individual heating (natural gas), reversible air conditioning, telephone and internet access (fiber optic, two operators to choose from), and two dishes receiving three satellites. Finally, the façade of the building has been restored and insulated in 2017.
According to its new inhabitants, Arganzuela is a district that becomes trendy and in this context, the buildings are restored one after another: the neighbouring building façade (left on the pictures) is being restored in the first half of 2018.
Due to its central location, this flat offers unbeatable access to all amenities; within 100 m - yards, you will find: two chemist's, a post office, a bakery, a drugstore, a Chinese bazaar (in Madrid, this is where you find everything you do not find anywhere else), a hardware store, a quality dentist (also speaks English), a traditional covered market, a supermarket and a mini market (Mo - Su, 9:30 - 22:00).
Less than 300 m - yards away, you have the branches of 5 banks, the Borough Hall, stops of 14 day bus lines and 3 night lines, and an underground station (2 lines).
And between 400 and 800 m - ¼ and ½ mile, besides the NHS care center, 19 additional bus lines (and 4 night lines) and a train station with two lines of commuter trains are at your disposal.
Eventually, the Atocha main train station is 1.5 km - a mile away, next to the Reina Sofía, Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums, not far from the iconic Plaza Puerta del Sol (20 minutes from your door). All these destinations are of course accessible by one of the many public transports described above. The Barajas airport is 45 minutes taxi drive away (30 €) or an hour or so by train, tube or bus.
This cosy apartment for sale in the centre of Madrid is offered unfurnished, but with a fully fitted kitchen (including origin fridge and washing machine). The price below includes the complete restoration of the non-renovated part at the end of 2010, i.e. the living room and the bedrooms: painting, changing two doors, flooring. You will only have to settle down. Without these renovations, the apartment is offered at € 180,000. Availability: early July 2018 (as is) or to negotiate (restored).
