The 2,000 sqm villa (carpet area) is located on a 1,200 sqm plot of land in the capital’s historic center, close to the headquarters of the National Bank of Romania. The building was refurbished and consolidated in 1994 and until presently it has hosted a bank (pictured).
The second most expensive property on the market at present is also located in Bucharest. It is a 1935 villa located downtown, in the Romana area, which the owners want to sell for EUR 7 million. It features four buildings totaling close to 2,000 sqm (carpet area) and a 2,566 sqm plot of land. A similar property, this time located in the Universitate area, is up for sale for EUR 6.5 million. The villa has a 1,554 sqm carpet area and was built in 1900 and refurbished in the early 90’s.
