Welcome to episode 2 of the Real Houses of Lima. If you forgot where we left off, you can check out episode 1 here.
These are two beauties tucked in next to each other are located in the beautiful neighborhood of San Isidro. These homes date back probably to the 1930s and are located on a beautiful tree lined street. The corner house (the bigger one on the left) is located on a roundabout (óvalo) that is peppered with ancient (more then 400 years old) olive trees and a fountain. If you are interested in homes like this, within a 4 block radius from here are at least 4 homes that are all from similar periods, but are abandoned and looking for a new owner. These would make great homes, or even be a great investment to restore and turn into offices (many of the historic homes in the area have been converted to offices, thus preserving them).
What do you think? Would you like to live in a house like this, or at least be an angel and save it from being torn down for something “modern”? If you are interested, please hit the contact tab above and get in touch. We would be more than happy to help you save a part of our architectural history!
