    Extraordinary penthouse with pool on Paseo de Gracia

    We are extremely proud to present you with this exclusive and singular gem of a penthouse that is located on the most privileged Avenue in Barcelona: Paseo de Gracia, with direct views of Antoni Gaudi’s famous “La Pedrera”, the extraordinary building which was his last residential project in his career. The apartment offers everything one could ask for in terms of luxury, excellence, comfort and even a piece of Art Nouveau history with original details throughout the property. The apartment is a duplex penthouse with two floors where both are accessible with elevator, whereas the upper floor consists of living and dining area, kitchen, bathrooms and a private terrace on level with the living room that offers panoramic views of the city and a private pool which can be enjoyed most months of the year. On top of this, the other side of the upper floor, which faces Paseo de Gracia, offers an exquisite office space that is within a beautiful dome with panoramic city views and three orientations, facing directly “La Pedrera” and Sagrada Familia at the same time, two of Gaudi’s most famous works in Barcelona. Additionally, this area connects to two large private terraces which both face Paseo de Gracia: a truly unique area and feature. The downstairs floor, accessible through internal stairs in the living room, is considered the nigh area and is where the bedrooms are located. It is important to highlight the difference also in design where on this floor the elegantly handcrafted wooden carpentry offers a touch of elegance and comfort, while combining with some original glass windows from the Art Nouveau (Modernist) times from when the building was built. Here we encounter 4 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, 2 guest toilets and an additional large TV room that can equally be turned into a fifth bedroom if necessary. The master bedroom is naturally the largest and most impressive bedroom with direct views of “La Pedrera” on Paseo de Gracia. Last, but not least, the tranquility and comfort this property offers is immense keeping in mind it's central prime location and it gives you a unique sensation of an oasis of peace throughout the apartment. This gem is certainly a property that stands out from most other on the market and spoils the future owner with the best combination of two worlds: modern luxury and comfort with historical heritage, right on the most important Avenue of Barcelona City.

    About The Area

    La Dreta de L’Eixample begins in Plaça de Catalunya and its central axis revolves around the Passeig de Gràcia and the Cuadrat d’Or. It is delimited from the busy Calle Balmes to the renovated Passeig de Sant Joan and from the commercial Ronda Sant Pere to the convenient Avinguda Diagonal. It is one of the most expensive and exclusive neighborhoods in Barcelona, along with Pedralbes and Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. It is impossible not to make reference to the luxury of Passeig de Gràcia, with the boutiques of the most exclusive brands in the world, or to the stores on La Rambla de Catalunya. However, the rest of its streets are as or more interesting. In them resided part of the Catalan textile bourgeoisie of the early twentieth century, which has left its mark on the spectacular royal estates and modernist houses designed by the most famous architects of the time, as the Pedrera or Casa Batlló of the great Antoni Gaudí. As a result, the characteristic homes of this neighborhood are spacious apartments with high ceilings, moldings, elaborate flooring and balconies. Many buildings and apartments preserve this original architectural heritage and it is possible to find recently remodeled apartments, penthouses, lofts and even studios, which revive these elements, as well as apartments with a lot of potential to be reformed. This side of L’Eixample is equipped with all kinds of services and stores, as well as educational centers, mainly state-subsidized and private schools. You will find it very easy to move around on foot or through the public transport connections to the most expensive stores and restaurants in the city. The Eixample Dreta is the best neighborhood if you want to admire and live in the noble zone of the fascinating Catalan modernism, to reside in one of its characteristic regal estates, and to coexist in perfect balance with the vibrant and luxurious commercial life. It is ideal if you want to walk every day through its wide and tidy streets, with easy transport connections, have all kinds of services and facilities available, including arranged or private schools, and enjoy the most chic, cultural and cosmopolitan atmosphere in Barcelona.
