Spanish term or phrase:Ingreso de jerarquía
The term "Ingreso de jerarquía" appears in a list of features and amenities included in a property listing for a luxury rental home in Argentina.
I believe it refers to the "main entrance" of the house (i.e. as opposed to the "service entrance"), but I'm not sure if there is a more formal sounding term that expresses the exclusivity (and pompousness) of the Spanish term. Considering the fact that the home is extremely expensive and set within a gated community, the terms should sound slightly exclusive. Not sure if there is a precise term that works for this in English. UK/US suggestions are welcome.
Hi Phil, thanks for the question. I asked my wife (who's Argentinian) and she said that "de Jerarquía" made her think it was an old-school aristocratic design term (i.e. to underscore the idea that "oligarchs enter through the front entrance"). Other than that, there is no other obvious context. The term appears as a bullet, not as part of a sentence.
I've spent a while researching this, and looked at DRAE, and I'm none the wiser. Is your interpretation an educated guess, or have you found anything to support it?
