El Born is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Barcelona, a point of reference for the first urban settlements with centuries of history and one of the districts that has most integrated modernity in the antiquity of its streets. El Born is undoubtedly a neighborhood that is representative both for its lifestyle that is promoted in the Catalan city and for its history and culture, that precedes it.
The most characteristic of this neighborhood is its architecture, which proposes a medieval aspect and a feeling of returning to the past of the city known today as the Barcelona. It is the ideal place to get lost in its narrow and tangled streets, while enjoying the street shows or the activities of its cultural centers. In addition, it is not only a very lively area thanks to small local shops, authentic bars and small bohemian cafes, but it is also a very well connected neighborhood to other areas of the city, since it is located a in a short distance from the renowned beach from Barceloneta or the distinguished Paseo de Gracia.
For some years, the buildings here have been in a constant process of transformation with the aim of incorporating comfort for the neighbors and recovering the splendor with which they have been projected. For this reason, the conservation of the original elements of the period, such as mosaic or Roman stone floors, brick walls and wooden beams, is fundamental. In this sense, many investors are interested in buying properties in this symbolic neighborhood given the constant growth in the demand for rental properties by tourists or permanent residents.
Among the properties that are discovered, stands out this mansion, located in one of the oldest streets of the Born. A perfect blend of Renaissance architecture of the sixteenth century and the modernity of contemporary life that is demanded today in the market. The high ceilings, the large windows, the wooden beams and the stately entrance of the farm are some of the details that it preserves. Thus, both its high quality finishes and its original details make this apartment an oasis of elegance and sobriety.
