Fully furnished 80 sqm (861 sq ft) apartment with a 4 sqm (43 sq ft) balcony, renovated with custom interior design.
The apartment has been fully renovated and remodelled to a high standard. All the plumbing and electrical wiring has been redone, including complete wiring prepared for an alarm system, cables installed in the walls for a professional sound system, and wiring for projection systems in the living room and the bedroom, based on audio-visual plans.
The over 50 sqm living room is very bright, with two large windows overlooking the quiet inner garden. A professional grade kitchen has been installed in the living room, with matte sand coloured cabinet fronts, Bosch kitchen appliances (oven, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, wine cooler) and an Elica NikolaTesla induction cooktop, with integrated extractor system.
The apartment is heated by a gas condensing boiler, with radiators concealed behind custom-made solid wood radiator covers in every room. Air conditioning has been installed in the living room and in the bedroom.
The high-quality light fixtures were selected by a designer and installed according to a lighting plan drawn up by a dedicated lighting designer.
The front door and the windows have been fully renovated (new panes, insulation and paint). The new balcony door is made of solid wood and insulated glass, modelled after the original balcony door. The newly installed interior panel doors are also made of solid wood.
The previous flooring was completely removed and large format Edelholz oak parquet was laid on top of a new insulating layer in the entire apartment (with the exception of the bathroom and the powder room).
The apartment is located in a very nice two-storey building, designed by Alajos Hauszmann (who also designed the New York Palace). The apartment is situated on the first floor and is the only unit in the block of 10 apartments that has a balcony, overlooking a wonderful, small inner garden and a loggia supported by unique, patinated cast iron columns. In the centre of the garden there is statue of a woman by French sculptor Antoine Durenne. The building is renovated, well maintained and in good condition.
The large cabinet decorated with paintwork based on a custom graphic design rises all the way to the ceiling, making it look more like a decorative wall panel than a cabinet that serves a variety of storage functions. The two-metre middle section of the cabinet opens up to reveal a hidden projection screen to enjoy a cinematic experience from the couch.
The 16 sqm (172 sq ft) bedroom also features floor-to-ceiling wardrobes with decorative paintwork and ample storage space, similar to the cabinets in the living room.
The bedroom windows are fitted with custom-made blackout shutters, and there is pre-installed wiring in the walls for a projector and a motorised projection screen.
The spacious, nearly 10 sqm (107 sq ft) bathroom is wonderfully bright, thanks to its two windows. The bathroom is fitted with a matte black curved bath, a Villeroy & Boch double washbasin and toilet, a large, unique shower cabin and matte black Bugnatese taps.
The powder room is also fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary appliances and a Bugnatese tap. Its wall is decorated with a unique paintwork, similar to the bathroom. The floors of the bathroom and the powder room are covered with circular black glass mosaic, which also extends to the floor and the walls of the shower cabinet. Electric floor heating has been installed under the mosaic floor, controlled by a separate thermostat.
The balcony has also been renovated with new tiling, new outdoor lights and multiple outdoor power sockets.
The renovation of the apartment was completed recently. All the custom-made built-in furniture, sanitary appliances, taps, domestic appliances, lights and fixtures are brand new, under warranty and unused. The same applies to the designer furniture, which is also included in the price of the apartment.
Over the past decade, the VII. District’s Jewish Quarter has evolved from a bohemian mess of streets to a pulsing, contemporary hotspot filled with new-wave coffee shops, boutique cocktail bars and restaurants, music venues and design stores. The ruin-pubs and Jewish culture that popularized the District are now couched between new neighbors incorporating Western European trends. But there’s no doubt that the colorful chaos of Szimpla Kert, Jewish gastro-gardens of Kőleves, Mazel Tov and co., and other bohemian mainstays still dictate the District’s flavor. Despite its rapid evolution, the Seventh is big, filled with charming local spots, if you can pry yourself away from the lively Gozsdu Courtyard or Király Street. And with the highest population density of all the Districts, it offers 24-hour energy and life to residents and visitors.
Music, parties, a vibrant dining out culture, clothing and design boutiques are packed side-by-side along the main streets in the District. Nighttime diversions aren’t hard to find, as there’s guaranteed to be a party, show or happening almost any night of the week. This is the District to be for those looking to get the most out of Budapest’s nightlife.
The as-of-now mainstream ruin pubs and gentrification of the VII. District has squeezed out less profit-oriented underground or alternative venues to the neighboring VIII. and IX. Districts. The VII. also sees a transient bustle of tourists and short-term visitors and the flashier genre of establishments that accompany them, making the heart of the District an unfavorable location for families.
