Serrano, 53 is located in the most exclusive area of the capital: the Salamanca neighbourhood. Here you will find the largest number of trendy restaurants, the galleries that set the pace of modern art and the most cosmopolitan shops in the capital. A vibrant combination of urban proposals only comparable to London’s Belgravia or the Champs Elysées in Paris. The building is located just a few metres from the Retiro Park, the Prado Museum, the flagship stores of the main international luxury brands and the National Library.
The building has nine exclusive flats for rent, three of them in duplex format and two with penthouse-type terraces and privileged views of the city. All of them have storage room and parking space.
Spacious and bright homes with 2 and 3 bedrooms plus service area with surfaces starting from 187 m².
In keeping with its spirit, Serrano 53 extols those features that denote a more contemporary luxury, such as direct lift access to the home from the building entrance itself or home automation services in temperature management, enclosures, security and lighting.
Both the façade and the interior of the building have preserved their original essence thanks to the careful restoration that has respected the elegance of the aristocratic and bourgeois taste of the period: wrought iron balconies, mouldings on the lintels and chamfered bay windows.
The spacious entrance hall preserves the original Macael marble flooring, its coffered ceiling and the perimeter cornices. The projection of incorporating the most modern constructive innovations, while respecting its glorious past, can be seen in details such as the banister that crowns the staircase, the maintenance of the wrought iron balusters and the wooden handrail.
The kitchen is fully equipped with top of the range, carefully designed appliances.
The building dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, specifically to 1905. A date characterised by the existence of a series of creators who redefined the standards of modern urban planning today. They were, and are, mythical names linked to architecture in capital letters, understood as “art”. Among them, one name stood out in Spain, Antonio Palacios. The Galician architect, author of the building located at number 53 Serrano.
Palacios was also the creator of some of the emblematic examples of Madrid’s 20th century architecture. The Palacio de Cibeles, which houses the city’s current Town Hall, and the Círculo de Bellas Artes are just some examples of his creativity and virtue. In fact, his architectural genius earned him the nickname of “architect of the Villa y Corte”. Something like what Carlos III once represented as mayor, in this case, unofficially. His brilliant vision of the craft of designing and building was capable of transforming Madrid into a true European metropolis, by engraving architectural jewels on the main arteries of the capital.
