The kitchen of the penthouse apartment, pictured, was designed as a ballroom to host receptions of the Grand Ducal family
A penthouse apartment that formerly belonged to the Grand Ducal family, has gone on the market for €7.3m.
The sale of the 330m2 property on the twelfth floor of a residential building close to the EIB and European institutions, is being managed by Property, an agency based in Luxembourg-Limpertsberg, and Unicorn.
While the price may shock few people accustomed to the rocketing housing prices in the capital, the photos will turn heads.
They show chandeliers hanging from high ceilings, decked out with restored mouldings and stunning frescoes. To the untrained eye, the interior looks and feels more like an Italian palace than a penthouse apartment in Luxembourg-Kirchberg.
The property also boasts five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a “wellness” area and four parking spaces.
“The kitchen is located in the former ballroom of the apartment, originally built to accommodate the Grand Ducal family’s receptions,” the posting reads. There are also two terrace balconies spanning 320m2, almost the same size as the apartment.
A Property employee confirmed to Delano on Friday that the apartment formerly belonged to the Grand Ducal family. Indeed, the kitchen was previously designed as a ballroom to host receptions.
