The project was designed so that the original heights of the slabs of the front of the building, where this apartment is located, were maintained, while new heights were created at the back of it. The result was two independent stairs with the same access. Likewise, the interior access to the parking lot was enabled from the building itself, whose entrance is located on a street perpendicular to Paseo de Gracia.
The apartment is entered through the lower floor, through the main hall of the apartment from where the staircase leading to the upper floor starts. Both floors of the property are developed along the facade so that natural light enters directly into each room. The lower floor has a large, centered living room, with an independent dining room annex which can also be accessed from the service area adjacent to the kitchen. At the other end of this same floor is the master bedroom which is also accessed from the main hall of the house. This room, like the rest of the rooms in the apartment has a full bathroom in suite and fitted wardrobes.
The staircase that connects both floors lands on the upper floor in an open space, which is used as an office from which you access the large terrace that runs along the facade, connecting the other two double rooms and the central space of this floor. The facade on this floor is composed of large sliding doors that allow keeping the interior and exterior connected at any point along it. The enclosures are of the Technal brand, in anthracite color, which gives it a minimalist appearance and exceptional insulating capabilities. The rooms at each end of the floor enjoy extraordinary views and direct access to the outside.
The finishes of the apartment are of high quality, despite having already more than 20 years, since the rehabilitation of the building ended in 1996. The apartment has a ducted air conditioning system and a radiator heating system. The pavement is made of natural wood, very well preserved, while the bathrooms are paved with large pieces of natural stone that are also used to placate its walls. The kitchen has the original furniture and integrated appliances.
The distribution of the apartment stands out, without corridors and with spaces that interconnect between them in a logical and functional way. Likewise, it is worth highlighting the versatility of the two floors, the lower one with a more traditional use, with a dining room, kitchen and the main room and the upper one with a more casual appearance and in full contact with the outside.
The terrace enjoys the best views of the city of Barcelona, with Paseo de Gracia at its feet the sea in the background and the Tibidabo mountain presiding over the image of the city skyline. As if that were not enough, this property has a large box for two cars and a storage room in the basement.
The location is unbeatable, it is the most popular street of the city, offering the best services and an inexhaustible variety of shops, leisure and catering, with the best access to public transport in the city.
It is an exceptional property on a building with a facade and architecture of great beauty in one of the best cities in the world. A must see, no doubt ...
