Lot of two adjacent rare magnificent historical apartments from the Fifteenth Century
These two apartments share a common entrance to the staircase but are completely independent. Each one has its own documents and is registered as independent unit.
They are two outstanding pieces of art and history of Barcelona.
Located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, in Calle Portaferrissa, one minute walk from the Ramblas and 5 minutes from Plaza Catalunya and the square of the Gothic Cathedral, the flats are close to all the landmarks and amenities of the historical city centre.
The building is classified as one of the monuments of the Gothic Quarter. Its fascinating history is still visible in the carvings and the decorations of its walls.
The flat itself is a testimony of the long heritage of the building, which construction dates back in 1459.
The entrance of the building is located in a side gated street, only accessible to residents, with no vehicles or passers-by, which guarantees total privacy and tranquility.
The apartments are on the second floor. The building has a lift. One unit overlooks Calle Portaferrissa and has two balconies open on the beautiful gothic street.
The second one gives to the private lane, and has a private terrace.
The ceilings are 4.8 m high, and the windows reach a height of 3.20 m, which guarantees plenty of natural light as all the rooms have exterior windows.
The properties have undergone a complete renovation of very high quality that has taken care of saving and recovering all the original and historic features of the flats. The works have been approved and validated by the Heritage Department of Barcelona.
The apartments feature magnificent painted ceilings, perfectly preserved. They are highlighted by an LED lightning system installed to showcase their splendour.
All the floors are hydraulic, with original tiles entirely restored by hand.
Portions of the original brick and stone walls have been exposed to bring more design and added charm to the unit.
All doors are solid wood and are original. They were saved, repaired and restored during several months of work. The same restoration was carried out with the windows, which have been all equipped with double glazing.
This incredible historical value and charm are perfectly mixed with modern technology and comfort, to provide an ideal environment where it is exciting to live surrounded by history and art, while relaxing in recent installations, and finally enjoying the pleasure of living in it.
Both units feature an open-plan integrated kitchen, with a bar big enough to be comfortable, pleasant and perfect for eating or working under its own lightning.
The bathrooms have a spacious walk-in shower with hydromassage column, built-in shelves, and (in one of the units) an original vintage vanity table and mirror from the early XX Century.
The bedrooms are all double and can accommodate a king-size bed or a queen size double bed, and all provide enough space to install wardrobes.
