Barcelona Borne stunning high quality flat with plenty of light and original features
This property will satisfy even the most demanding customer, looking for a heritage and trendy apartment of superior quality in the heart of the historical city centre.
Located in a quiet pedestrian street, a few steps from the basilica of Santa Maria del Mar (visible from the balconies of the flat), in the best part of Ciutat Vella, the flat is surrounded by history, landmarks, and plenty of nice shops, restaurants, and fashionable cafes. Transport links are excellent, including the connection to the international airport. The sea is at short walking distance and so are Plaza Catalunya, the Gothic Cathedral square, and Paseo de Gracia.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a classic building from 1864 (although its origins are older).
The communal parts of the building have been completely restored too and a new lift has been installed.
The flat has a total surface of 131 m2 and as the building is at the corner of two streets, the apartment has many windows and balconies, all giving to the exterior. All rooms have windows, or window-doors, which ensures plenty of natural light at all hours of the day.
The flat has been fully renovated with a considerable investment in enhancing its original features and historical value, while mixing them with modern comfort and installations.
The distribution includes four double bedrooms (of which one with en-suite bathroom), two bathrooms, a service bathroom, and a 39 m2 living-room with American kitchen with island.
The kitchen is integrated and fully equipped with fridge/freezer, oven, microwave oven, and dishwasher.
The kitchen is 3.30 m long and has a 1.60 m island, around which you will be able to accommodate and entertain several guests.
The living-room/kitchen area is at the corner and it receives plenty of natural light from its several windows.
The environment is very charming, with the original vaulted ceilings highlighted by special lightning, the original walls of stone and bricks, and the original windows and doors perfectly recovered by hand by expert carpenters who were able to use traditional methods of the 18-19th century. All windows and French windows are double glazed.
The floors are a mix or massive bamboo wood and decorated tiles arranged like carpets, inspired by the ancient floors of Barcelona and the most recent Italian design. They create a combination that blends perfectly with the original elements.
The new installations include: air conditioning by conduct in the whole flat, radiators in the bathrooms, walk-in showers with hydromassage columns, walk-in closets in some of the bedrooms or, alternatively, plenty of space for wardrobes, including a dedicated space for the washing machine with original doors.
Windows are all double glazed, which ensures perfect sound and temperature insulation. There is plenty of space for storage.
Each detail has been studied to create the perfect balance of natural original materials, colours, elegance, modern comfort, and historical value.
The renovation and the design are of very high quality, and they combine themselves with elements difficult to find in this neighbourhood, such as the large living space, the opening on two sides of the facade (as well as on a large interior patio), the abundance of natural light, the lift, and the optimal distribution that ensures the best usage of the space with the maximum comfort and organization.
The renovation is not finished yet but is in the final stages. The apartment can therefore be visited now because most rooms have been completed. Only the restoration of the carpentry requires a little more time. Indeed, it is done in a traditional way, by hand, and the pieces of antique metal are re-forged.
A very similar flat is available, with the same features, on the fourth floor. It is located one more floor above the street and its distribution and different orientation provide a second option of choice for a apartment renovated according to the same criteria of quality and design.
