Calella Barcelona duplex with terrace close to the beach
Ideal holiday getaway by the sea, close to Barcelona, or excellent buy-to-let investment (with option to split the property into two units).
This spacious duplex apartment is located in Calella, sea town in the province of Barcelona, on the Maresme coast, between the Catalan capital and the Costa Brava. It is 250 meters from the beach and close to all services and amenities.
Calella is 56 km from Barcelona. It has been a renown tourist destination (especially for international tourists) since the Seventies, and it is famous for its long and beautiful beach.
The duplex is in a building from 1980.
The apartment is on the ground and first floor. The total surface includes 179 m2 of flat and 50 m2 of outdoor spaces.
The distribution includes five bedrooms, of which 3 double (with fitted wardrobes) and 2 single. The master bedroom (on the first floor) is en-suite. There are two more bathrooms, one upstairs and one on the ground floor.
The apartment includes two living-rooms, one on the ground floor with stone walls, and one on the first floor with library and decorative fireplace.
The living-room on the ground floor has been arranged as a cinema room, with audiovisual system.
The kitchen has been recently refurbished, and it is equipped with a water osmosis system to purify the water.
Additionally, the apartment features double glazing insulated windows, bamboo hardwood floors, air conditioning by conduct on the ground floor and split on the first floor, gas system, and armoured door.
The flat features two terraces: a 35 m2 terrace on the first floor, and a 12 m2 terrace on the ground floor, where a laundry room is located. All the outdoor spaces have anti-slippery floors.
The building has a communal swimming-pool of 25 m by 10 m.
It is possible to purchase a parking space or two adjacent parking spaces in the same building (at extra cost).
One very interesting option for this property is the possibility to split it into two separate units, one per floor. This would give the new owner the opportunity to rent one unit out while using the other; or renting both units, which would ensure a better yield than renting the whole apartment as a unique entity.
In Calella it is still possible to get tourist licences, so tourist rental would also be an option that would work very well, considering the tourist appeal of the location.
Connections between Calella and Barcelona are excellent. The train works all day and there is a night bus that stops 100 meters from the flat.
The area offers all types of services, including schools, medical centre, pharmacies, and supermarkets.
