This extraordinary and exterior penthouse is located on one of the most desired avenues in Barcelona – Avenida Diagonal. It enjoys a very central location being a 10 minutes walk from Paseo de Gracia, though yet within a very residential micro location.
Upon entering the penthouse you realise directly that its layout is very different from any other property in Eixample. It offers very exterior exposure, spacious bedrooms and astonishing views of Sagrada Familia and the Tibidabo mountain.
Right upon entering you have two large bedrooms on each side of the hallway entrance, where one of them enjoys a large and private bathroom. Later you approach the open and fully equipped kitchen that has direct views of Sagrada Familia. The kitchen is eventually connected to the spacious living room with direct access to the 27 m2 terrace that is perfect for outdoor living all year around. The living room is eventually also connected to the master en-suite bedroom that also offers a bathtub. There is also a guest toilet in the entrance hallway.
The apartment has been renovated to combine modern look with comfort with utmost attention to detail and high end finishes and appliances. Its layout and views, combined with the outdoor space, sets a perfect harmony throughout the home and offers all the aspects one could wish for in a penthouse on such a privileged location in Eixample.
The house comes with A/C conduct, fully equipped kitchen, concierge service in the building and a separate service elevator for transporting goods.
The location is very strategic as both Paseo de Gracia and Paseo de Sant Joan are a step away while the neighbourhood of Gracia is equally few minutes walk up, a unique combination of two worlds.
The Eixample district is the most emblematic of Barcelona since the nineteenth century. Of a renowned model urban planning devised by the engineer Ildefons Cerdá, Eixample marks the epicenter of the city from its main streets: The luxurious Passeig de Gràcia, the commercial Rambla de Catalunya and the updated Passeig de Sant Joan, housing the majority of the modernist architectural icons, such as La Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera or La Casa Batlló of the great Antoni Gaudí. It is a large, quiet but exciting residential area with extremely convenient commercial activity, designed to respect the privacy of the homes.
The Catalan modernist architecture so characteristic of stately airs, but with great cosmopolitan touches, extends throughout the neighborhood to the delight of those who wish to live modernism from within, since it is possible to acquire homes within regal estates with valuable original architectural elements, period pieces and even historical and protected.
Schools, squares, wadis, parks, stores and restaurants give dynamism to the area that differentiates the Right from the Left, both with wide uniform streets, octagonal islands and wide island interiors that mark the internal distribution of buildings and homes. You will mostly find buildings of strong bricks, floors of generally wide dimensions, medium or high ceilings, with balconies that give to the wide streets or the inner patios of the Cerdá Plan.
Keep in mind this living in the Eixample district, if you are looking for a neighborhood where you can have everything within walking distance or very well connected to public transport, both basic and luxury stores, trendy restaurants or even your workplace among the many offices and stores, this could be your neighborhood.
If you want to walk among the iconic monuments of the city, with the comfort of equal distance to any other point or neighborhood in the city. Consider Eixample if you are a lover of modernist, stately and typical Catalan architecture and a high street feeling. If you want to live in the vital and cultural epicenter of Barcelona, where everything happens.
