Newly Refubished 232m2 Apartment in Eixample, Barcelona

Urbane presents a wonderful opportuity for a generous sized Newly Refubished 232m2 Apartment in Eixample. As with so many Eixample apartments this one is located within a building that is the epitome of character and architectural taste.

The building itself is on Muntaner street very near to the Plaza Universitat and other popular districts in Barcelona. The building dates back to 1920 and was designed following the Noucentisme school of design. This was an architectural tendency that was in some ways a reaction to the modernist tendency.

This is an apartment known as a "piso pasante" which means it runs from the front to the back of the building. On one side is calle Muntaner, which receives morning sunlight, with the other side receiving the afternoon sun along with the peace and quiet of the inner patio. It boasts a total surface area of 232m2.

This Eixample apartment has been totally reformed and refurbished, the work carried out has combined all the modernist elements that make the space stand out, with brand new materials and installations. It has a grand entrance hall, a master bedroom with wardrobe, bathroom and two balconies, two other bedrooms also with bathrooms and wardrobes, another separate bathroom, a kitchen with kitchen island and dining area, and a living room which leads to the gallery terrace space.

It has maintained many of its original elements, such as its mosaic tiled floors, its interior and exterior woodwork, its windows and its 3.5 meter high artisan ceilings. The building is in great condition and continues to be maintained by a concierge service. Spacious and bright first floor apartment The apartment is a first floor apartment, but on the floor that is known as the principal. These were the floors where, traditionally, the owners of the building lived in the times before lifts. The building was constructed around 1920. The building features plenty of the characteristic elements of the time and from the noucentisme movement, such as a majestic marble floored entrance hall and a somberly composed façade with vertically aligned windows.

An interesting feature in the building is that the ceiling height diminishes with each successive floor, according to the historic importance of each floor. This results in the top floor having the lowest ceilings. Perhaps in those times the servants were expected to live up there! This apartment is on the first floor, and as is common with this floor, known as the Principal Floor, it has the highest ceilings of all the apartments in the building, with a height of 3.5 meters. This high ceiling, combined with the paralel iron beams lends a wonderful sense of space and light throughout the apartment.

Each of the windows is framed with decorative lintels and pilasters, and these, as well as the blinds and the wrought iron railings make them stand out quite wonderfully. These are some but not all of the features that have led the building to be listed in the Heritage Catalogue of the city of Barcelona.

This apartment, like so many large properties in Barcelona, is set out with one area clearly designated for daytime use and another for night time use. Two main bedrooms make up the side of the apartment closest to the buildings façade, with a third just next to the entrance hall, meaning the communal areas are closest to the interior courtyard. The areas closest to this interior courtyard are quiet and bright, and receive plenty of sunlight all through the afternoon, with a great gallery space to be enjoyed all year round. The kitchen is more than 75m2, however if needed could easily be cordoned off to make a fourth bedroom of at least 20m2, still leaving the kitchen and living are an impressive 55m2.
