Fully renovated in 2020, this extraordinary and unique residence softly blends the colonial architecture with contemporary design resulting in one of the most exceptional properties in Old San Juan with water views. It’s located at the most exclusive and tranquil area of Sol Street in Old San Juan. Imposing high ceilings, marble floors and great space distribution are some of the highlights of this magnificent property.

Its roof terrace space enjoys stunning views to the San Juan Bay, La Fortaleza (the Governor’s home) and Casa Blanca (Juan Ponce De Leon’s home).
