Property Description: A Fairytale with fabulous potential and opportunity! Why do I say this? A Fairytale because the house has that old storybook quality of being quaint and stately, surprising and even a bit mysterious. Fabulous potential because despite being almost 100 years old, the house is in fairly good shape. Yes, you`ll probably need to replace all the pipes and plumbing and the floors need attention and it needs a good designer with the right respect for history and patina to bring it out, but I didn`t see any structural damage, no mold in the basement and no ugly leaks in the ceiling. Opportunity? Because the house has a full basement and a full (and tall attic) which are not being used, but my God they could be! That doubles or triples the value that you could get for pennies on the dollar once you`re in. Three bedrooms on the ground floor with one more in the attic. Closed kitchen, two bathrooms, reception and livingroom leading out onto terrace and down to garden. Private garden space is about 100 sqm. Two rooms in the basement, two rooms in the attic. Only two apartments in the villa.

Neighborhood Description: We love Cotroceni. It`s a neighborhood of stately villas, parks, the opera house, great restaurants, tennis courts for hire and of course the Presidential Palace. More south of the city than the majority of our expatriate clients prefer, but really the only neighborhood to have a really good quality of life in the south. If working near Piata Uniri or Militari neighborhoods this is an excellent option. International School options are going to be the International British School on strada Agricultura, or Ioanid International and the Private French School in the Piata Romana neighborhood (25 minutes by Metro).
