Published on  

July 11, 2024

Nestled in the heart of Barcelona's vibrant Eixample district, our latest Pied à Terre apartment exudes authentic charm and modern comfort. With its prime location just 30 minutes from Barcelona Airport, this 109 m² sanctuary offers a seamless blend of historic allure and contemporary style, making it an ideal urban retreat.

With great care and reverence for Barcelona's rich heritage, our meticulous restoration led by expert craftsmen was dedicated to preserving the apartment's unique character. During the renovation, an exciting discovery awaited – removing the flat plasterboard on the ceilings revealed original Catalan vaulted brick ceilings, reminiscent of a bygone era.

Each detail, from ornate mouldings to exquisite tile work, weaves a tale of the city's past, infusing the space with an unmistakable sense of nostalgia. The restoration process ensured that the allure of the original design was lovingly retained, striking a harmonious balance between old-world elegance and contemporary convenience.

As you step into the spacious open living area, an abundance of natural light welcomes you, inviting relaxation and tranquility. Meticulously restored tiled floors exude character and charm, while contemporary furnishings and bespoke accents lend an understated touch of luxury.

The two serene bedrooms offer an oasis of calm, each thoughtfully designed with plush bedding, soft textiles, and carefully chosen artwork, capturing the vibrancy of Barcelona's culture and energy.

The bathrooms boast modern fixtures and playful wallpaper designs, creating a delightful sanctuary for rejuvenation. Throughout the home, a neutral colour palette with tasteful pops of colour fosters an inviting ambiance, while curated art and décor grace the living spaces, adding to its sophistication.

Our commitment to sustainable choices shines through with mid-century dining chairs, discovered as hidden gems at Mercat dels Encants de Barcelona, lovingly reupholstered for their new home.

Additionally, the Audo Copenhagen Dancing pendant gracefully hanging from the vaulted ceilings adds a touch of softness and contemporary elegance.Join us in celebrating the captivating transformation of this Pied à Terre apartment, where the essence of Barcelona's cultural heritage harmoniously blends with modern comforts.

Experience the allure of this vibrant neighbourhood and immerse yourself in the city's vibrant energy, all within the warmth and embrace of our thoughtfully renovated August home.
