This charming villa built in 1937 is located in the best residential area of Bucharest. The building has a generous garden, one of the largest in the area, with conifers, than ensure a cool shadow during the summer and protectithe façade from the main street.The villa was fully consolidated in 2000 and refurbished in 2018, with the replacement of all the facilities. The building is endowed with the finest finishes, including natural stone and solid wood, harmoniously engineered with the furniture and the latest technological solutions (floor heating, hot water recirculation, smart control systems). Regarding the refurbishment of the interior, the original features of the house were taken into account, while preserving and capitalizing the details of the era: elegant arches, ornamental columns, sculpted massive wood elements, Venetian-style windows with Moorish influences, decorated with hand painted Art Nouveau style stained-glass. The generous outdoor recreation area features a gazebo and a playground for children.The year of construction of the villa overlaps with the period in which the Primãverii neighbourhood was established. Designed by Octav Doicescu (1902-1981), one of the most important Romanian architects in the interwar period, this neighbourhood was located outside Bucharest in the first half of the last century. The plot was comprised in the area designed by Marmorosch-Bank in 1932 in the Jianu-Bordei neighbourhood and was confined by the Herastrau, Arminden, Jean Monnet and Mircea Eliade streets. In the same period (1930-1935), Herastrau Lake was created, by the rehabilitation of a swampy area.The buildings designed by architect Octav Doicescu in the 1930s were created for the workers of the Gas and Electricity Factory and strictly followed a series of urban planning principles: they were built in a modernist style and had at most one floor. The architect will build in 1939 a house for himself in this neighbourhood, on Mircea Eliade Street no. 2 corner with Herastrau street, where he will live until the end of his life. During the communist period, the neighbourhood was chosen as a residential area for the nomenclature of the time and became the "Forbidden Quarter" - the access was allowed only to the residents, being extremely well guarded.Located in an exclusive neighbourhood with a unique history, in the immediate vicinity of Bucharest's largest park, the villa is an ideal residence for a family looking for the best schools and high-schools, wishing to take advantage of the clean air and the quiet area.Sources:Lavinia Betea, Pove?ti din Cartierul Primaverii, ed. 2, Editura Curtea Veche, 2017Andrei Eugen Cristea, Marius Marinescu ?i Mihai Mitran, Cartierul Interzis – Cartierul Primaverii, Editura RAO, 2015octavdoicescu.blogspot.comadevarul.ro
