The condos

All condos in Condado de Baviera were designed by the developer with the option of turning one end of the L-shaped living room into a third bedroom but since this would make the living room a  bit small, most units only have 2 bedrooms and two baths.

The L-shaped living room (the study or a TV room) can be used as a 3rd bedroom. Others have eliminated the wall that separates the living room and the corridor for an even more spacious feeling. The brightness and spaciousness caused by the large windows in the living room should be noted. Most condos have laminated floors in the social areas as well as in the bedrooms and the wet areas (bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry room), the floors are ceramic.

The window frames and internal accesses were made from PVC profiles, while the doors and solid wood baseboards. The balconies are small but large enough for two chairs and a small table.
