I live in an apartment facing the street and the noise is horrible as is the dirt. I clean and in one day everything is covered in powder. I was wondering, has anybody tried living in one of those PH's? Horizontal properties in a neighborhood like Palermo or Collegiales? Ground floor, facing the back with a long cooridor leading to the residence? I was thinking the fact that it was ground floor, and the depth of the place because you live a ways back and are protected by the rest of the building and the fact that it's not facing the street might be the solucion. Any thoughts or experiences with this? I'm going to have my maid come twice a week instead of once but still, things get dirty in one day and I have allergies and asthma, the dirt is not good for me. Thanks! PS, those PH's are also absolutely adorable!
