The apartment is located in the heart of Budapest in one of the buildings classed as national monuments, built in 1732. It also gave home to the capital’s very first café, as remembered by a tablet by the building’s front entrance. From 1945 the apartment’s residents were the Count Kőnigsegg family and it became the property of the family’s descendant Mária Csilla Simonyi and her husband János Lehoczky in the mid-80’s. The apartment is still furnished with her belongings, including the paintings and original and replica engravings that recapture the atmosphere of the old, civil milieu. In the 1950s the apartment’s size allowed four generations to live together here. In 2008 it was fully renovated, and the unique, hand-made wrought iron chandeliers, lamp-brackets and floor lamp were installed – all made by acclaimed Hungarian artist and blacksmith János Lehoczky, and his son, metal restorer and blacksmith Tivadar Lehoczky.
