This Functionalist villa is located in an attractive Prague residential area and has four luxury apartments in the early 20th century style. Dating from the 1930s, the villa is situated in Peroutkova Street in the high-demand Malvazinky Quarter of the Smíchov District. The villa’s design emphasizes geometric simplicity, making the building timeless, yet at the same time possessed of distinct genius loci. This small-scale residential project offers a level of peace, security and privacy. The advantage of the project is that each unit takes up an entire floor of the building, thus providing absolute privacy.
This apartment, located on the second floor of the building, offers three bedrooms facing the quiet garden, with one of the bedrooms having a pleasant balcony. A characteristic architectural element enhancing the First Republic atmosphere of the building is a glazed avant-corps on the side of the building in the living room attached to the dining room and kitchen. The apartment comes with one parking space.

LOCATION – Prague 5, Malvazinky
The Malvazinky Quarter is a peaceful residential area attractive both to families, who will appreciate the abundant greenery and to young people interested in the rich social and cultural opportunities offered by central Smíchov. In times gone by, this hilly vicinity was covered in vineyards but as Prague expanded in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these were gradually replaced by residential areas. The Quarter is named after Tomáš Malvazy, the Lesser Town Burgher who founded the vine-growing hamlet of Malvazinka in these parts in 1628. Today, it retains the peaceful, almost resort atmosphere of a First Republic era (1918 – 1938) villa district. There are large undeveloped tracts, including Santoška Park and Paví (“Peacock”) Hill.
A walk through the district will reveal many jewels of First Republic residential architecture, with buildings created by famous architects such as Jan Gillar, Ernst Muehlstein and Adolf Loos. In one area, the stately villas are contrasted by unique, brightly colored, working-class terraced houses. One of the residents of this cozy, historical district is the well-known Czech actress Aňa Geislerová.
Parents of young children will be pleased to find a kindergarten, elementary school and pediatric clinic nearby, as well as a number of playgrounds and other civic amenities. Golfers can take advantage of the nine-hole Golf Club Praha course. The Prague City Circuit thoroughfare is just three minutes away by car and the Anděl, Nový Smíchov and Galerie Butovice shopping centers are about a ten minute ride by public transport.
