A deluxe three-level apartment located in an upscale building is up for sale in Rio de Janeiro, boasting exceptional views of the bustling city and picture-postcard Sugarloaf Mountain.

Overlooking scenic Guanabara Bay, the striking four-bedroom residence is not only the ideal investment, but also a classy setting for TV scenes, photo shoots, and parties. For example, the triplex featured in the soap opera “O Outro Lado do Paraíso” in 2017, and has been rented out as an event space for people seeking a flavor of Rio’s high society.

With a prestigious address in Flamengo – the high-end residential neighborhood between Catete and Botafogo – it’s one of the largest condos in the world at around 4,000 square meters. The mega property currently belongs to former tycoon José Carlos Fragoso Piresto and was previously owned by millionaire Jorginho Guinle. Listed for an undisclosed amount, real estate agency RIOException is handling the sale.

Opulent design and architecture

Designed by the Frenchman Joseph Gire, the same architect who created the iconic Copacabana Palace, the sizable penthouse comfortably accommodates around 200 people. Inside the grandiose home, there’s attention to detail throughout, with ornate cornicing, statement lighting, and splashes of color on the walls.

Wander along the eye-catching hallway and admire the lavish Carrara marble flooring, before checking out the winter garden and fountain, and the capacious living room with a grand piano. Meanwhile, a large helicoidal staircase connects all levels; one boasts a ceiling the height of two floors.

High-end amenities galore

In terms of noteworthy features, the triplex is home to an Arc de Triomphe replica, a bar for entertaining and mixing up cocktails, a wine cellar, a games room, an office, and an underground 10-car garage.

Meanwhile, health gurus will enjoy the fitness space and the dry and wet saunas.

On the lower level – the seventh floor – there are four master suites, two of which have separate dressing rooms and walk-in closets, plus balconies with wonderful sea views.

Up a story – take the private elevator to get there – it’s all about the seven-meter ceilings as well as the grand dining area with a table seating 24, the wood-paneled library, and the smoking room.

Up again, there’s a relaxation zone and a well-kept outdoor garden with a built-in barbecue.

The pièce de résistance? A heated marble swimming pool overlooking Flamengo Park and Sugarloaf. And of course, there are more of those unparalleled city panoramas to savor.
