Located on the topmost floor of the building, this apartment is blessed with an inviting, partially covered terrace with views of the Arrábida bridge and the mouth of the River Douro where it meets the ocean. The apartment has a spacious living room with a ceiling of partially exposed beams, windows with views of the peaceful Rua de Entre Quintas and a kitchenette.
On the upper mezzanine there is a double bedroom with a ceiling with skylights with views of the gardens of the Palácio de Cristal. The bathroom is complete with a shower and is lit from the exterior.
The western orientation of the bedroom means that it is very luminous in the morning. The kitchen is equipped with an oven, an espresso coffee machine, a dishwasher and a washing/dryer machine.
The original windows of the apartment have been replaced with new wooden ones with double glazing that provides both noise and heat insulation. The wooden flooring has an area of 35.00 m2. The terrace has an area of 8.8 m2.
