This brand new 2 bed apartment in Born forms part of a unique renovation project in the heart of Barcelona’s most charming quarters – Born. Located on one of the most known and lively streets of the neighborhood, the building enjoys a fabulous location next to the Ciutadella Park and the city centre. There are several apartments for sale in the project distributed between two fully renovated building that now form a sole community of neighbors.
The architect of this project opted for a unification of two historical buildings located on one of the area´s main streets which goes back to the very beginning of the 19th century. It was originally created to join two main areas of the old city of Barcelona that was still surrounded by ancient walls back then. Still nowadays the street preserves some impressive medieval palaces that are being renovated with time. There are 14 apartments in total distributed among the two buildings hiding behind their historical facade. The two building are joined together by a passage that goes through a very green patio in between: a lovely quiet oasis in the middle of the stone town. The project is also unique as it enjoys a parking area – that is very rare for the old town – located below the buildings on the -1 level.
The 2 bed apartment in Born is located on the Principal level of the building (first floor) and has 91m2 of interior space and 26m2 of private terrace overlooking the patio. The apartment features two bedroom, one double and another one individual and two bathrooms with one of them en suite. As we walk into the apartment, we find ourselves in a lobby that takes us to a spacious living area with an open style kitchen. The room has direct access to the balcony and enjoys plenty sunlight throughout the whole day. The “night” area of the apartment is separated from the rest of the home and is located straight in front of the entrance. The private terrace can be accessed directly from the two bedrooms. It is spacious enough for a nice table with four chairs and a lounge area to be enjoyed throughout the whole year.
During the renovation process the design team created modern and spacious apartments and used such natural elements like wood and stone to give them organic and natural feel. All the apartments enjoy their own parking space in th -1 level of the building with entrance from the Princesa street. Electric plugs for electric cars and a carwash area are available on the -2 level.
There are more apartments for sale in the project on higher floors. Learn more about our properties in Born!
