It is certainly difficult to describe with conventional words this singular property that many would qualify, without hesitation, as an authentic work of art itself. This property jewel is located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, one of the most sought-after districts of Barcelona. The majesty of this property is not incompatible with the cosy atmosphere that is generated inside, a factor that allows its occupants to feel ‘at home’. In this sense, the sensation of comfort that is experienced surprises from the first moment you enter, key experiential factor that very few luxury apartments offer with this profile.
A sumptuous hall receives the visitor, a space dominated by impressive golden tiles located on the walls. Its design combines perfectly with the aesthetic of the metal lamp that hangs from the ceiling, in which golden mouldings stand out, the same as those that are located around the entrance door. In the lower area, the marble baseboards will not go unnoticed by those who consider luxury to be in the details.
Nothing has been designed or chosen at random on this floor; each one of the details of its exquisite furniture and decoration is aligned with the stately and sophisticated character of the property, away from ostentatious elements. The salmon tones stand out as protagonists of the dining room in which leafy mouldings cover all the walls, connected to the ceiling by means of a plaster frieze that decorates the upper part of the room. At the level of interior design, the scrupulously studied combination of classic furniture with modern design lamps gives the space an accentuated personality.
The area that gives a unique personality to this property is its kitchen, an authentic masterpiece that stands in what was once an old chapel. It has preserved its original appearance with religious-inspired paintings. Cooking in your own ‘Sistine Chapel’ before an audience of impressed guests is one of these life experiences that really are priceless.
Comfortably positioned from the living room, you can enjoy, through the large windows of the viewpoint, views of the Harbour of Barcelona which, in itself, already represents an authentic daily show ‘live and direct’. Two beautiful wooden and glass doors connect the bedroom -dominated by a large double bed-, with a large dressing room from which you access the spacious bathroom, whose aesthetic reflects the contemporary spirit of the property in global terms. The apartment has also a room that has been interpreted as an office in which there is a large desk-ideal if you want to work from home-and a piano that, besides its obvious utility as a musical instrument, always exudes elegance and style.
The location of this luxury apartment is simply unbeatable. Due to its proximity to the harbour and the sea, it is ideal for those who love nautical sports and the beach. Also point out, in an additional way, that the property is located in an emblematic area of Barcelona with an exciting social, cultural and shopping life. The gastronomic and leisure offer is very wide and the connections with public transport excellent.
