3 bed apartment in The Arches
About the Property
Chestertons is excited to exclusively offer to market this stunning colonial apartment set within the newly redeveloped Police Barracks development. The iconic Police Barracks site has recently seen a sympathetic multi million pound renovation that has produced a number of new homes that boast state of the art, high end fixtures and fittings within a colonial building that boast stunning views to Africa and the Strait. This home is a gem. Set at the end of a shared access thoroughfare, an elegant opaque gate ensures your privacy on the large rear terrace which gains you direct access to your allocated parking space. From this terrace you enter the newly renovated home that boasts three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, designer kitchen with Silestone worktops, reverse cycle air-conditioning, high ceilings, new windows and a West facing balcony that gains you the most impressive 180 degree views to Africa, the Strait and the Bay of Gibraltar. Undergoing somewhat of a rejuvenation over the past few years, the Upper Town area is becoming increasing popular for those looking for properties of character set within an old town ambiance. Furthermore, this up and coming area has access to some of the Rock’s best schools with the new state of the art St Bernard's middle and Prior Park secondary school, along with the added bonus of just being a short walk from the hustle and bustle of town or the serene upper Rock Nature Reserve. Viewing highly recommended.
Lovely large terrace which also acts as the reception area for the apartment. You gain access through an opaque glass gate from the lift area, and in addition via a door from the parking lot which is located immediately behind your parking space. The terrace is half covered and boasts enough room for a large dinning set, BBQ, and other recreational furniture.
Entering the home you are struck with the beautiful long hallway with its high ceilings. From the front door, you catch a promise of the wonderful views that await you in the lounge area at the end of the space. The hallway benefits from a beautiful grey/brown hardwoord floor, wall mounted video intercom that allows for secure entry into the building and a convenient store cupboard that houses the large boiler and has additional space for household storage.
The master bedroom has a calm and chic ambiance with light gained from the North facing window. The room benefits from high ceilings, hardwood flooring, wall mounted LG reverse cycle air-conditioning and direct access to the private en-suite bathroom.
Large double size bedroom boasting high ceilings, natural light from the east facing window that gains views to the back terrace, the same hardwood flooring found in the hallway, a large free standing triple wardrobe and wall mounted reverse cycle LG air conditioning. The room, as is with the whole apartment, is TV and internet ready.
Elegant and bright, the en-suite bathroom boasts a beautiful light atmosphere due to the large North/West facing window with partial sea views. The designer white Porcelanosa suite consists of toilet, sink with integrated drawer unit, and impressive large walk-in shower with wall to wall glass sliding doors and wall mounted shower attachment. The room is partially tiled with a glamourous marble effect tile that is complimented with the grey slate style floor tile. Further benefits include high ceilings and shaver point
This bathroom also boasts a beautiful white designer Porcelanosa suite however rather than the large walk-in shower, this room benefits from a large white bath with a wall attached shower head. The room also benefits from the cool white marble effect tile what partially covers the walls and the grey slate effect tile that covers the floor and too benefits from a shaver point.
Currently being used as a private dining room, bedroom 3 is a good size double room with a North/West facing window with town and partial Bay views. The room benefits from beautiful wood flooring (that is found throughout the rest of the apartment), high ceilings and reverse cycle air-conditioning.
The lounge is a beautifully light and airy space with large glass doors that lead you onto the West facing balcony and the stunning views that lie beyond. These views can be enjoyed from both the lounge and the kitchen which are interconnected via a large archway. The room benefits from dual aspect windows, high ceilings, reverse cycle LG air-conditioning and lovely hardwood flooring.
The kitchen is modern and sleek set within the colonial ambiance of the building’s design. The designer high gloss, soft close white cabinets line the floor and walls and integrate the appliances perfectly. The long work surface is grey Silestone and the backsplash is opaque glass creating a modern feel. Appliances include a large Balay fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave, and oven with hob.
The balcony is accessed via both the lounge and kitchen and runs the width of the apartment. The views are accessed via the three large arches that give this iconic building its name and are what creates the colonial style of the building. The balcony benefits from enough space to accommodate a small bistro style table and chairs and is the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular views which include Africa, the Strait, the Bay of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar city scape.

About the location
Gibraltar is steeped in history, culture and diversity – did you know the skull of a Neanderthal woman was discovered here in 1848 and was only the second Neanderthal skull ever found and the first adult Neanderthal skull to be discovered, eight years before the discovery of the skull for which the species was named in Neanderthal! The upper town offers a treat for anyone wanting to learn more about Gibraltar’s history or just explore the Rock. Including St Michael’s Cave, the Moorish Castle, the Great Siege Tunnels & WWII tunnels, Princess Caroline’s Battery and, of course, not forgetting the Apes Den.
