Renovated apartment with historical character in the Barri Gòtic
291 m²Built Surface
This impressive ground floor is one of those properties whose historical value is unique and definitely unrepeatable. Located in a quite street in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, there is this property built next to the Main Synagogue -built around 1314- in what used to be the old Jewish quarter of Barcelona, one of the oldest settlements of that community in Europe. Since the 14th century it has been known as the Rabbi’s House, although inside it preserves the Roman ruins that give a glimpse of an even older past and which have been left protected but visible in the latest refurbishment.
The 290m2 of this apartment are distributed in a grandiose day area within an open space with ceilings that exceed 4m in height where the living room with home cinema, a dining room with a large table and an open kitchen with high quality materials of the Santos house have been arranged. The apartment is accessed through the usual entrance of the building, but also has direct access from the street in this area.
It has 3 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a courtesy bathroom, as well as a multipurpose underground space of 30m2 with its own bathroom, which can function as a wine cellar, games room, or even as a spa.
Throughout the property there are many details and elements that give it its special character, elegant for its decoration, historic for its original construction elements and comfortable with the materials and designs applied in its most recent refurbishment, such as natural oak wood floors, fitted wardrobes and home automation. A perfect combination that makes this property an ideal retreat in the city centre.
The building has also been completely refurbished recently, and offers a communal terrace with chill out area, barbecue and fantastic views over the Gothic Quarter.
It is the oldest district, number 1, the embryo of the city, where all its history begins from the original Barcino, where Roman ruins and medieval Gothic coexist. This district is made up of four neighborhoods, the Gothic, Sant Pere, Santa Caterina, El Born and La Ribera, and Barceloneta, each one more interesting than the other for tourists, since it is the most touristic area of the city, as well as residents. Despite its name, it is one of the most dynamic areas, full of history, art and culture, diversity and very cosmopolitan.
Its two markets are especially interesting, La Boquería and Santa Caterina have everything you need from anywhere in the world.
The buildings are quite old and many are very well preserved. The floors are generally medium to small, and fantastic historical jewels can be found, such as floors with medieval or Roman walls.
So if you are a lover of the city’s millenary history, culture, heritage, the most varied gastronomy, the beach, and entertainment, and you want to make a good investment, in this district you can find your ideal neighborhood.
