Classical Mansion in Madrid, Spain

Completely refurbished in 2007, this historic mansion epitomizes the classical style. The building materials were taken from other historical homes, now gone, such as the Mansion of the Count of Romanos and the ancient German Embassy.

Exterior

The formal gardens and grounds, laid out in strict geometric shapes, include a pool, several paths and a high exterior wall to maintain the home's privacy.

Foyer

Pale gold silk curtains make a dramatic statement in the open doorway leading from the foyer into the living room.

Living Room

An enormous rug stretches the length of the ballroom-sized living room that breaks up the large space with several different seating areas. The ceiling soars up over three meters high.

Living Room

Gold and black accents are sprinkled throughout the space for a luxurious, elegant feel.

Conservatory

The conservatory is a peaceful retreat in any season with its glass walls, citrus trees and charming sitting area. Enjoy tea, a favorite book or the company of friends.

Conservatory

Huge arched windows surround the walls of the conservatory and fill the space with light, making this a heavenly spot for breakfast, lunch or an early dinner.

Living Room

Creams and golds fill the elegant living room, punctuated by crisp accents of black. High ceilings add to the airy feel of the space.

Kitchen

A black-and-white checked floor adds fun graphic punch to the modern kitchen. The door leads to the garden, which provides access to the gatekeeper's (or staff) house. 

Dining Room

An intricate inlaid pattern adds extra panache to the parquet floor of the formal dining room. Don't miss the beautiful molding on the walls and ceiling.

Bedroom

With beautiful refurbished hardwood floors and a spacious open-plan design, this bedroom offers easy flow, lots of natural light and gorgeous original details like the ornate pendant light.

Bedroom

Delicate floral patterns on the bed linens and framed artwork infuse this bedroom with vintage romantic charm.

Hallway

Ornate molding, beautifully embellished wood panels and inlaid wood floors decorate your walk down this elegant hallway.

Bedroom

An eclectic mix of furniture and accessories fills this gracious bedroom with style and personality.

Spa Bathroom

Disappear into the spa bathroom at the end of a stressful day for a luxurious soak in the incredible freestanding tub, rinse in the walk-in shower or simply the zen-like calm of the space.

Home Office

Work from home in ultimate Victorian style in the office that features wraparound glass cabinets for storage and a lovely wood desk with gracefully curving legs.

Pool

In warmer months, the pool and surrounding lawns and patios become a blissful retreat from the heat and hectic pace.

Exterior and Conservatory

At the back of the home sits a beautiful enclosed glass conservatory. Connected to the dining and living rooms, the space becomes an alternate entertaining area with a light-filled, outdoorsy feel.
