Grand Old Caballito

There are some amazing old houses in certain parts of Caballito, a suburb right in the middle of Buenos Aires. Two thirds of the suburb is full of tall apartment buildings built from about the 1960s/70s onwards, but a couple of areas remain with these old beauties. These are just a couple examples of the grand old architecture that I love.

This amazing old house below is unoccupied ; the windows are cemented over to avoid squatters living there. On closer inspection the house is about four stories tall with a roof-top terrace as well. It must be so old and incredible inside, I wonder if it is full of old furniture, and who owns it. Such a shame that it is just sitting there with no one to bring it back to life. My dream Buenos Aires house!
