In the city of Madrid you can find such incredible homes as an old mansion, which also belonged, no more and no less… than Mario Conde! Now it is this mansion of the CEO of CaixaBank, who recently bought it to renovate it and move in.
We don’t know what it will be like to live in the house of a peculiar character like Mario Conde, but the place is worth checking out. With more than 800 square meters, luxurious rooms, and a beautiful garden, it is anyone’s dream to live in such a place without leaving Madrid.
However, the sale of the villa has been extremely complicated and even blocked for many years by the courts, given the situation in which Mario Conde found himself. Let’s see what the CaixaBank CEO’s palace looks like and why it is so worthwhile!
Interesting facts about the mansion of the CEO of CaixaBank, and before that of Mario Conde.
The area in which the mansion of CaixaBank’s CEO, whose previous owner was Mario Conde, is located is in Nueva España, relatively close to the Chamartín neighborhood. Although he could finally acquire it by paying about 3 million euros, it was initially difficult to find a new buyer.
Mario Conde still has an important debt with the Treasury, which made that for a few years, specifically from 2016 to 2018, justice claimed that possible money from the sale of the house. It was finally acquired, and CaixaBank’s CEO, Gonzalo Cortázar, has announced that he has begun a major overhaul.
Although the photographs we have of the house are from when Mario Conde still lived there, and we assume that it will be completely renovated, we can get an idea of how big and luxurious it is. According to the portal Idealista, in those 800 square meters, there is space for three floors, an attic, and eight bedrooms.
In addition, the beautiful mansion has a huge plot with a garden, where there is also a swimming pool to better pass the heat of the summers in Madrid. Although it is a house with a rather complex history, because it was in it that the years in which Mario Conde was convicted of fraud and money laundering were forged, the truth is that it is an enviable home.
It is possible that we will not know how the reforms Gonzalo Cortázar, CEO of CaixaBank, decides to make to it will look until perhaps he also sells it. But we can assure you that it will be a space that more than one of us would like to live in if we were proposed to do so.
