Not long ago, today’s Miasteczko Wilanów district used to be land covered with meadows and bushes. The area situated along the road to Powsin was a venue for picnics for the locals. All this changed when in 2002 a real estate developer started construction of the first apartment buildings on the land purchased from the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. This is how the history of the estate known as Miasteczko Wilanów began. I myself live here and interesting listings of properties in this area keep cropping up at my agency Crystal House.
A well-designed housing estate
Miasteczko Wilanów has been a very well-thought-out urban plan ever since from the start. It was designed according to a masterplan, owing to which subsequent parts of the huge estate matched the earlier developments. The concept for the “Wilanów City” was authored by architect and urban planner Guy C. Perry. A cohesive structure of the estate was to be self-sufficient and it was supposed to have the right number of shops, service points, schools and culture centres as well as clinic and the core idea was to build a city within a city.
The plan of the streets in this area is based on the composition and landscape axes of the Wilanów district (Al. Wilanowska, ul. Klimczaka, Oś Królewska and Al. Rzeczpospolitej) which form the so-called hen’s paw; while the dominant elements of the area are the Wilanów Palace to the east and the Divine Providence Church to the west. Buildings here can be up to 20 metres high, and their exterior must refer to the Wilanów Palace and Park complex.
Luxury two-level apartment
The property I want to tell you more about today is a nearly 150 m2 two-level apartment situated in the best part of the district. It is surrounded with low residential and retail buildings. The spot where the building is located in offers a very good commute to the city centre and other parts of Warsaw. It is also a great location for those who enjoy active leisure – there are many cycling routes and jogging routes and gym facilities.
The apartment was finished in a high-end modern standard. The minimalistic interior is enriched with wood and soft textiles. The top-class kitchen appliances will satisfy the expectations of event the most discerning home chefs.
The bottom floor houses a living room with a kitchen and dining room, a study and a small bathroom. Upstairs, there is a master bedroom, a second bedroom and a bathroom.
The apartment has beautiful terraces offering a splendid view of Wilanów and Warsaw.
The price? PLN 2,500,000.
