When you arrive at Old San Juan you walk into 500 years of history. Established in 1509, Old San Juan is characterized by its narrow, blue cobblestone streets. In 1966 this historic site was added to the National Register of Historic Places and in 1983 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The blend of colonial-contemporary architecture & design makes these impressive apartments amongst the most exceptional properties in Old San Juan. The elegance and splendor put these properties in a category of luxury all on its own. These two homes located at “Balcones del Castillo Condominium” which was built near the 19th century have a combined gross area of 3,150 square feet consisting of: living and dining rooms, kitchens, laundry area, 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a terrace (facing the imposing Spanish Fort “San Cristobal” and view to the San Juan Bay), a balcony (facing Plaza Colón and view to the San Juan Bay) and an interior patio. The two residences were recently remodeled combining modern features with the colonial look of the building. High ceilings and wide doors opening to stunning views to the Old City, San Cristobal Fort and the Cruise Ships Port make these properties unique in Old San Juan.
Since you are the sole owner on the entire floor, you can either combined both properties as a single home or maintain both independent to each other allowing you to make one as your private home and the other one as an income property.
Balcones del Castillo has elevator facilities and conveniently located just walking distance to historical sites such as San Felipe del Morro Fort (built in the 16th Century), “Cuartel de Ballaja” (built in 1854 by the Spanish army that evolved with the passage of time to a cultural center where you can find The School of Visual Arts), the San Juan Cathedral (the first Catholic cathedral church in the Western Hemisphere), El Convento Hotel (originally inaugurated in 1651 as a Carmelite Nuns Convent, opened as El Convento Hotel in 1962) and the recently restored San José Church which is one of the oldest example of Gothic influenced religious architecture in the Western Hemisphere built by Spanish, with original construction in 1532. Walk to fine restaurants and boutiques like you will do in any old city in Europe.
This an exciting time to live in the second oldest City of the Western Hemisphere!
