Edificio El Cristo, aptly named after the "El Cristo" statue in Santa Cruz, Bolivia is located on the corner of trendy café-lined Avenida Monseñor Rivero, one of the most sought-after locations for apartments in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. This area offers an excellent, central location near... well, everything! Just minutes from downtown, Equipetrol, various private schools, shopping, grocery stores, gas stations, banks, the courthouse, library, and right around the corner from the city's most popular café and restaurant strand, if you like to be out and about, this location is ideal for you. In a city glutted with new apartment buildings (most offering very tiny living spaces) this apartment is very roomy. The 7-story building, which has under 30 apartments, is structured such that this one stands alone (no adjoining apartments on any side, only above and below).
The building: located between Broadway Restaurant and the Banco Ganadero, this building has a rooftop pool, patio and grilling area with restrooms and showers, balconies and a view of the entire city. The underground garage features very roomy "bauleras" (storage rooms) for each apartment. The apartment pictured above also has the only 2-car garage in the building, which is included in the price. Ground floor features various garden patios and a guarded gate system. The interior of the building was recently painted and the renovation/repainting of the exterior is planned. The pool is cleaned twice a week. The rooftop patio (covering the entire roof of the building) can be reserved for parties and events at no extra cost. Stairwells and an elevator can be used to access all areas of the building.
The apartment: located on the first floor of the buidling, features 3 bedrooms (1 en suite with it's own bathroom, 2 share a bath). All have roomy closets (equipped with shelving and bars). Baths have electric showers. The hallway from the living room to the bedrooms is extra wide. Living room and dining room adjoin a roomy kitchen, laundry room, and maid's quarters (or storage room) with another bath and shower. Patios and hallways separate just 5 apartments per floor. This unusually roomy apartment has connections for air conditioners, cable TV and telephones/internet in all rooms and washer-dryer connections in the laundry room. It does not have "gas domiciliario" (gas mains) but building management plans to install these to replace the current "garrafa" (gas cannister) system. 24-hour security guards, cleaning and gardening, trash pick-up and public area lighting are included in the building maintenance fees, which are currently $80 per month. Current asking price is $107,000.
