The villa was built in the interwar period according to the plans of the architect Octavian Doicescu, member of the Romanian Academy, Doctor Honoris Causa of the 'Ion Mincu' Institute of Architecture in Bucharest, known for numerous projects, such as the Romanian House Pavilion at the “New York World's Universal Exhibition Fair 1939', of the Palace of the Society of Romanian Writers, the ensemble of the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, the building of the Romanian Opera and other public and residential projects in Bucharest and in the country. The Mântuleasa area came into being during the Brâncovenilor period outside the city and would develop around the church of the same name, being incorporated into the hearth of the city in 1752. Personalities such as Mihai Eminescu, Mircea Eliade, Petre ?u?ea, Panait Istrati or Mircea Vulcanescu, lived and created in the Parisian-scented houses of the famous slum. Built at the end of 1936, with a layout on five levels, respectively Bs2+Bs1+Gf+1F+A, made of brick on reinforced concrete frames and beams, the house in Mântuleasa was designed for practical, generous spaces that benefit from full of natural light. There are 12 rooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, a terrace on the ground floor, two balconies on the first floor, a very high cellar in the second basement and a garage in the first basement. It has a free yard of approximately 350 square meters with green spaces and the possibility of parking for at least 2 cars. Characterized by a minimalist and modernist charm at the same time, solid from a constructive point of view, the villa can have multiple future destinations, both as a chic residence that preserves and carries forward with dignity the fragrance of the interwar period, as well as space for business, restaurant , law firm, notary, company headquarters.
