This is a rare opportunity to purchase a home on the ‘Principal’ floor of a historic building in the heart of the Gothic quarter that also has its own private roof terrace.
This fantastic apartment boasts 3.4m ceilings, many original features including beautiful hydraulic tile floors throughout and enjoys a balcony that runs along the entire length of the apartment overlooking one of Barcelona’s most magical streets – Comtessa de Sobradiel. Strung with lights, this street is one of the most charming parts of the Gothic quarter, especially at night.
The apartment has a total interior living area of 112m2 and the rooftop terrace extends to 40m2. There are 2 double bedrooms and an additional room that can be used as a guest bedroom. There is 1 very large family bathroom, and a guest WC. The apartment is fully exterior and has a fantastic distribution.
Upon entry, we find a fully custom-built open kitchen with an island and a “chef´s table”. What better place to cook and entertain your guests at the same time?! There are two bathrooms, one with an open shower and vintage freestanding cast iron bathtub and the other, currently a guest WC, has the potential to have a shower installed.
The large living area has a lovely bright balcony with open views of the street. The balcony is deep enough to fit a cafe table and chairs: imagine yourself on this balcony one early summer morning with a cup of coffee and a fresh croissant just watching the world go by! Also as this is one of Gothic’s wider streets there is plenty of light, including direct sunshine, something also not so common in the this quarter.
There is an open plan dining area large enough to accommodate a table for at least 8 people. The bedrooms are located on both sides of the living room: the large master to our right and the guest room – to our left, next to the dining area. Adjoined to the guest bedroom, there is an additional room with its own balcony – again large enough for a café table and chairs – which can be separated by sliding doors and used either as a third guest room or a study/home office.
The highlight of this apartment is a gorgeous private terrace located on the building´s rooftop. With fantastic 3D views of the city, higher than the rest of the buildings in the area, it allows lots of privacy. Whether your plan is to use it all for yourself as your private city zen to relax and sunbathe or to entertain and host BBQ parties with friends – it is a perfect and unique space that allows it all! The current owners accommodated it for all, and the terrace has electrical and water supply and a BBQ grill for you to enjoy.
It is a unique and rare opportunity to own a noble apartment with high ceilings in the very heart of Barcelona city that also has a private terrace on the rooftop, don´t miss it!
The Gothic Quarter
Finally, the location could not be better, this corner of Gothic, known for its artist community and independent boutiques has a very cool buzz to it. With designer shops, local restaurants, cafes and of course a great choice of cute tapas bars, it is perhaps the best pedestrian street in the whole district of Ciutat Vella.
Here you are within walking distance of all the amenities, grocery stores, bakeries, numerous restaurants, and shops. It is also only a 5-minute walk to the Opera House, old marina or uptown to Placa de Cataluña.
The area is very well served to the rest of the city by various metro stations within a short walk.
