Rakoczi square, a peaceful oasis just of the ring road, was the city's red light district many years ago.  But the arrival of a lively cafe (the Csiga), the revival of its traditional Market Hall, and the construction of the new Metro station have gentrified and renewed the square.  This apartment captures 19th Century Hungarian upper-middle-class living, wityh its marvelous details that include a balcony over the square, stained glass windows between the bedroom and the hallway and the courtyard, a massive mirror over a marble mantel, and rococo filigree in the gilt plasterwork.  Newly renovated with a gourmet kitchen and a luxurious bath, the apartment's most unique feature is the warmth and encyclopedic knowledge of its owner, Eliane Pickermann.
