Fabulous neoclassical style country house, originally built in 1827 is considered one of the most outstanding properties in the region, located in the centre of the sought after town of Alella, 15 km from Barcelona on the Maresme coast.
Exquisitely restored by its current owners, the 6 bedroom home boasts over 1,000m2 of constructed area and is set amidst beautiful Mediterranean gardens with far reaching views of the surrounding vineyards and Mediterranean Sea. The large plot of 9,070m2 is set over several different terraces and includes an award winning 1930’s rose garden, numerous fruit trees, an orchard and a stunning Provençal style swimming pool set amongst mature olive trees.
Originally built as a summer home for a prominent Catalan merchant family, this idyllic house is one of Alella’s most important historic properties. The restoration project, completed in 2017, was completed to the highest specifications and great care was taken to ensure that the home lost none of its authentic charm and beauty. The house is full of original features, including its spectacular Catalan vaulted ceilings, an ornate water tank directly in front of the house, old olive and wine presses on the ground floor and the original wrought iron gates at the main entrance.
The property is built on three levels and includes 2 kitchens, several generously sized reception rooms (the main room on the ground floor measures over 135m2) and a total of 6 spacious en-suite bedrooms. Architecturally, one of the key features of the property are the two beautiful porticoed terraces that extend from the front to the rear of the building on each wing of the first floor, offering exceptional views of the town, the coast and the surrounding vineyards. .
The extensive grounds have been meticulously landscaped and great effort has been made to preserve as much of the original landscape architecture as possible. There are several shaded seating areas for al fresco dining, a lovely bar area, a beautiful swimming pool with covered terrace and ample storage space for garden furniture and machinery. There is also ample guest parking next to the second entrance to the property.
This is one of the best properties in the region and a rare opportunity to acquire a country house in a privileged area of the province of Barcelona, very close to the city (17 km) and the coast (2.5 km).
On the north coast of Barcelona and specifically in the Maresme you will find several small villages and urbanizations that stretch along the coast from Montgat to Blanes, where the Costa Brava begins.
This area is ideal for those who want to enjoy a home close to both the mountainous nature and the Mediterranean beaches, and at the same time do not wish to give up being close to the heart of Barcelona. Thanks to its excellent connections to Barcelona, both by train and by car, many people travel daily from the Maresme to Barcelona and vice versa.
In the villages which make up the Maresme there is life all year round. In fact, although there is a lot of tourism during the summer months, there is no real low season and therefore restaurants and stores keep the same hours throughout the year. In this area you can practice all kinds of activities, from horseback riding and hiking in the beautiful mountains that frame the Maresme, to sailing and diving in the Mediterranean, and of course enjoying the beaches along the coast. In addition, the strip of land between the mountains and the sea has some incredible golf courses and tennis clubs. The region is known as well for it’s gastronomy and wine culture. The mile-long, crystal-clear beaches of the Maresme area also attract many city dwellers on weekends.
