This recently renovated Eixample 2 bed apartment enjoys a total surface area of 108m2 and is located on the fourth floor of a modernist building that dates back to 1900. The building is located in Eixample and it has a lift that will bring you to your new home. This wonderful property has a superb location within a short walking distance from the University of Barcelona and it’s located between the old town and the main streets of the Eixample district.
The layout of the apartment is very well thought out. Upon entering the apartment on the left hand side we find two double bedrooms. Both rooms have a window that provides access to a balcony that opens its doors in a quiet courtyard. Besides, one of the two rooms comes with a private dressing room. After entering the hallway there is an office room on our left hand left side and a bathroom on the opposite side. Further on there is a kitchen next to the bathroom. On our right hand side and separated from the kitchen with doors we find the spacious living and dining room. This bright area has two windows that provide access to a balcony that allows a lot of sunlight coming into the room. The balcony is situated on the front side of the property where we also find the beautiful main facade that faces the street.
The apartment has recently been renovated using high end materials and preserving some of its historical features. The facade has a balcony that occupies the entire front of the floor, which overlooks the street. The structure of the facade is neat and simple. In the back, there is the inner courtyard of the block, with another elongated balcony that gives a lot of ventilation to the floor. The ceilings are very well preserved and are mainly plaster or reed. The current floor is ceramic tile, but under this, the traditional Catalan hydraulic floor is in very good condition.

The area of Eixample
Eixample is one of the most trendiest neighborhoods of Barcelona. Translated as ‘Expansion’, Eixample is a relatively new area of the city, having been developed in the late 19th and early 20th century. Nowadays, the neighborhood is home for high end shops and restaurants, art galleries, and modern architecture. This part of the town doesn’t express the narrow, winding street that characterize many parts of Barcelona. Rather, you’ll find an orderly, modernist grid system that mirrors the elegance and sophistication of Eixample. The area is just a short walk away from the Old Town and the rest of Barcelona, all that while being in a neighborhood thriving with activity and life. Last but not least, Eixample is home for two of Gaudi’s masterpieces: La Sagrada Familia and Casa Milà, which are worth a visit.
