Nothing surprises more than opening the door of Manuscrito and taking in the quietness and spaciousness this 65m2 apartment located at the heart of the Barrio de las Letras offers. The light filters in from the patio and is reflected on the white walls, creating the perfect frame for what one can make out at the back of the living-room and in front of the only colourful wall of the whole apartment: an antique press for manuscripts binding.
Walking towards the press, one goes through the kitchen, totally equipped in pristine white and with a window to the patio. On the right, a glass translucent sliding door opens up on to the bedroom, with its wide built-in closet and a 160x200cm bed with a hand-made headboard in coral pink.
The wood, the different colours, ecru, white and green create a natural atmosphere for the spacious living-room and dining-room of this apartment, with a lot of light from its two balconies overlooking a quiet street. Two Bonet brown leather armchairs and a white sofa form the living-room area over which floats a mobile feather sculpture that represents the writer's work.
In the dining area, a large hardwood table in front of “Naturaleza Urbana” (Urban Nature), a more than 2 meters 2005 painting by Jorge Vieira reinforces the natural atmosphere of this apartment, in contrast with the view of the traditional buildings the balcony offers.
Clean and simple lines in an apartment that has been totally renovated and that is completed by a bathroom in grey tones.
The main piece is without a doubt the antique manuscripts binding press that gives its name to the apartment. Brought from a Valladolid country house and completely restored, this cast iron press, with its various bronze parts, presumably dates back to the late XIX Century.
Amongst the apartment's paintings, both an original Carlos Vilchez oil painting and the “Naturaleza Urbana” master piece of Jorge Vieira stand out.

This apartment is light, airy, clean, and just wonderful. We stayed for a week, and there was nowhere we'd rather be! Perfect location - a quiet street but a short walk to galleries, gardens, t… More
