This property joins the charm of the original historical quarter, the privilege of one of the trendiest locations in barcelona (the borne, between barceloneta, the ciutadela parc, and the gothic centre) and the comfort of a modern high quality renovation.
The apartment is on the second floor of a building registered in its final form in 1888 (although its origin is older). the building itself, atop the listed area, is registered as part of the historical and artistic heritage of the city.
The location, only steps from the basilica of santa maria del mar, is in a very quiet street. the quality of the street is illustrated by a new exclusive michelin restaurant opening this spring on the ground floor of the building. the location provides the double advantage of being in the centre, literally at the corner of the rambla del borne and the front of the santa maria del mar illustrious church, in a silent non-passing lane, which will ensure tranquillity and peace to enjoy in your new home.
The flat’s total surface of 64 m2 (originally composed of four rooms) has been transformed during the renovation into a large double bedroom and a loft-style living room with all modern features and decor inspirations. it includes a walk-in wardrobe, a wide open space lounge with an open kitchen, and a bathroom.
The original stone walls, which precedes the building registration, has been recovered and restored, as well as the original wooden beams of the catalan vaulted ceiling.
with one exception recreated, most of the original window frames and interior catalan shutters have been restored too. all together, this gives a lot of character to the flat and the special feeling of living with modern amenities in a piece of the history of barcelona.
The kitchen is equipped with oven, dishwasher and integrated fridge and freezer.
Additionally, the flat possesses extra features: bamboo wooden floors, air conditioning per conducts (cold/hot in each room) with independent thermostat, vintage tiling for the kitchen splashguard and in the bathroom, led lights in entrance, kitchen and bathroom, optimised lightning to highlight the character of the original traits of the apartment walls and ceilings, a large utility closet, plugs to adapt tv installation and ceiling hanging lights, original 19th century entrance door, rain shower, and interior original shutters.
