Bossa Nova! As electrifying, colorful and dynamic as the pulse of this exciting city, this penthouse is a dynamic fusion of contrasting textures and details. With such a bold design ethos this unique duplex is perhaps the most beautiful penthouse in Ipanema. Many celebrated (and not so famous!) guests have loved relaxing amid the chic ,retro and slightly quirky ambience on offer here.I also have welcomed many esteemed architects and designers,for example,who have truly appreciated what sets this project apart from the rest of the market.
Located in the heart of Ipanema’s very best neighborhood, relax in your own exclusive hideaway perched high above the trees and the action.Situated along a peaceful leafy residential street, this mid-century style penthouse occupies the top two levels of a modern and architecturally distinguished building. Thrill to the iconic and panoramic views of mountains,the Christ statue and the city below.
Highly recommended and featured in 'Boutique Homes','The Sunday Times' magazine(UK) , 'Savoteur' and 'Living Etc' (the biggest selling modern homes magazine in the UK).
Twice winner of the Best Private Rental in Rio in the LUX Awards.
The double height layout means there are areas to share and areas for privacy.
The main living and dining spaces feature a balcony overlooking the treeline and streets below along with the fully equipped kitchen and both a double bedroom,shower room and a smaller en-suite single bedroom.
The upper floor features the large en-suite master bedroom and dressing area along with a private sitting room off of the main terrace.Great to have your own private domain, apart from other guests below on the first floor. Equipped with a heated Jacuzzi,designer recliner and dining table for four, this is the spot for stunning views of the famous Mt. .Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer.

The interiors are a fun and colorful mix of elements and period design creating a distinctively Brazilian character. The apartment is even located in the same street as former resident ,the legendary “The Girl from Ipanema” composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.Just some of the many artists represented include Aoleo,Oscar Niemeyer,Carlos Sena,Chico Fernandes and Andy Warhol.Furnishings includes work by world renown designers Eileen Gray, Florence Broadhurst,Sergio Rodrigues,Vivienne Westwood and Giuseppe Scapinelli.
Situated in a calm tree lined residential street referred to by locals as the “noble” area of Ipanema, you are ideally placed just adjacent to Rua Vinicius de Morais in the safest part of the city. Just four blocks from the beach and a couple of blocks from the Lagoa and the main thoroughfare, this is the very best area within Ipanema. You will love the convenience of being directly parallel and just 350 meters (5 minute walk) to Post 9 on the beach,generally regarded as the absolute apex of Carioca beach culture.
The pulsing beat and joie de vivre of overlapping cultures is the charm of Rio, from the vibrant Copacabana on the south side and the twisting density of the favelas, to the dizzying action of downtown and the fashionable coastal beaches,the vibrant rhythms and diversity of the city are captivating. Surrounded by tropical rainforest with the iconic Sugarloaf monolith and Mt. Corcovado’s Christ the Redeemer overlooking the city, this world famous town is everything and more.
