Eixample Derecho Real Estate
The Eixample Derecho o “Eixample Dreta” in Catalan denotes the right hand side of the wealthy and well planned area of Barcelona known simply as El Ensanche or El Eixample. This simply means “expanse” or “extension” and is a utilitarian name describing the fact that this area of Barcelona was created so that the old city of Barcelona, Cuitat Vella, could expand. Along with Eixample Izquierdo, Eixample Derecho real estate is surely the most sought after real estate in Barcelona.
The typical Eixample Derecho real estate is usually something quite special. With gloriously high ceilings, floor to ceiling wooden shutters which allow all of the light in as well as permitting wonderful views of the outside. And what an outside it is, the carefully planned grid system dreamed p and put into practice in the mid 19th century by the architect Idelfonso Cerdá allowed for open spaces, low buildings and lots and lots of trees.
However Eixample Derecho is home to the most famous architectural creations of Barcelona. Gaudi’s Casa Batlló, La Pedrera or Casa Milá and La Sagrada Familia are for sure the most famous but the whole district is littered with wonderful examples of modernist architecture.
It is not just the Eixample Derecho real estate that makes this area so attractive. There are many clubs, bars and of course superb restaurants however, unlike Eixample Izquierdo, the right side of Eixample is relatively quiet at night making it a very attractive place to live. Imagine bing surrounded by all this architecture, bars and high class shops but being able to have a quiet night in with little traffic!the beach, as well as several metro lines and handy metro stations.
