International Property of the Week: Living the Lisbon Lifestyle

Chiado and Lapa are two of the most sought after and upmarket residential neighbourhoods in Lisbon where residents appreciate being close to the city-centre buzz yet within an elegant district.

Here are two options for house hunters eager to experience the prime Lisbon lifestyle:

High Lapa. New-build apartments in Lapa

Midway between Downtown and waterfront Belem, High Lapa has a winning location in a prized Lisbon neighbourhood. Lapa is a peaceful residential area close to several parks and small squares.

High Lapa is especially well placed for Tapada das Necessidades, beautiful but little explored public gardens originally built by Portugal’s royalty in the English style.

The one to four-bedroom apartments have views of the nearby River Tagus, some with balconies or gardens and all share the spa, swimming pool and gym. Homes come with private garages or parking spaces.

Priced from €790,000 to €4,500,000.

A re-sale home in Chiado

Generously sized with 205 square metres of living space, this thoughtfully refurbished apartment in Chiado offers two bedroom suites and a well-proportioned reception space all finished with a coolly contemporary design. There is excellent storage space and a separate laundry and storage room.

Suitable as a pied-a-terre or a full-time home, it is in the heart of historic Lisbon close to excellent transport options.

Priced at €1,650,000.
